The game between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe had everything in store for fans. After Bangladesh finished their innings, Zimbabwe got off to a shaky start, losing four wickets inside the powerplay.

Experienced campaigner Sean Williams, along with Regis Chakabva, led the recovery work. Williams brought up his fifty but Chakabva fell on 15. Williams (64) along with Ryan Burl took the game deep but the former fell in the penultimate over.

The equation came down to 16 required from the last over. Richard Ngarava kept Zimbabwe’s hopes alive as he smacked a four and a six to bring the equation down to five runs from the final ball.

Blessing Muzarabani swung hard at a delivery from Mosaddek Hossain, but failed to connect and Nurul Hasan dislodged the bails in a flash. Replays suggested that Hasan had collected the ball in front of the stumps. As a result, no ball was called and it was game on. Mosaddek held his nerves to beat Muzarabani on the free hit to help his side win the game.
