A lack luster performance with both bat and ball saw Bangladesh pick up their first two points of the tournament when they bruised to a six wicket win over Zimbabwe in the fourth match of the ongoing Pran RFL T20 triangular series at Harare sports club on Thursday 21 June.
Zimbabwe shocked strong favourites South Africa by 29 runs Tuesday, but a total of 149-8 off 20 overs proved insufficient at Harare Sports Club.
Bangladesh, needing a win to retain a chance of making the final this Sunday, responded with 153-4 off 17.3.
Opener Hamilton Masakadza (56) top scored for the hosts with Taylor and Stuart Matsikenyeri (27 each) the only other notable run contributors while Mashrafe Mortaza (2-28) was the most successful Bangladeshi bowler.
Nasir Hossain (41 not out) led the run chase with Rahim (31) and Mohammad Mahmudullah (29) lending most assistance while Kyle Jarvis (1-18) was the pick of an attack that did not recapture the form shown against South Africa.
