Harare:  Bangladesh's cricket captain Mushfiqur Rahim on Monday dedicated his team's victory over Zimbabwe in a Test match to several hundred of their compatriots who lost their lives when a factory collapsed last week.

The match got underway on Thursday - a day after a garment factory collapsed with around 3,000 textile workers inside - with Bangladesh's cricketers wearing black armbands to show solidarity with those affected by the tragedy.

Although thousands of people either escaped unscathed or have been pulled from the rubble alive, almost 400 deaths have been confirmed with many more bodies thought to be trapped under the fallen concrete.

Bangladesh picked up the six wickets required for victory on the final day of the second Test to win by 143 runs and earn a share of the two-match series, and Mushfiqur confirmed that the team's thoughts had been with their compatriots.

"It's a very sad moment for us back home, so we really dedicate this win to those people who died in the tragedy," he told reporters.

"We've been thinking about it during the match, and we discussed it when we got back to the hotel after day one.

"We've been trying to keep in touch with everyone back home because it really is a disaster. Hopefully the families of those who died this tragic death will be fine."
