Match Ended   
152 (19.0/20)
153/2 (18.5/20)
Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by 8 wickets
That is that from this match. Bangladesh once again have dominated the home team and are looking too strong for them. The second T20I is on Friday, 23rd July 2021 at 12.30 pm local (10.30 am GMT). Do join us in advance for the build-up. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Mahmudullah, the winning captain of Bangladesh, (on his promotion in the batting order) says that the situation was such that they needed 8-run-an-over and he wanted to show some intent. Credits the openers for a superb start and praises the bowlers for coming back strongly. Adds that if you look at the stats, the chasing team has won the last 7-8 games here and also the wicket was looking good for batting. Adds that they have a good batting depth, so chasing is always a good idea. Hopes that they will come with the same intent in the next game.
Soumya Sarkar is chosen for the Man of the Match award for his all-round show.
Sikandar Raza, the captain of Zimbabwe, says that they were looking at 170-plus but they fell short but feels that they have plenty to gain from this match. Adds that the lower order and the middle-lower order didn't fire and not to bat the last over was criminal. Tells that if they avoid the mistakes done in this match, they will be good to go in the next match. Opines that they have to stick to their bowling plans a bit longer and not panic. Hopes they will be a lot calmer in the next game, especially at the death. Wants to stick to his plans and attack the batsmen with the new ball.
Presentation time...
Zimbabwe have themselves to blame for this loss. They started brightly with the bat and were going great guns with Regis Chakabva leading the charge. At the halfway mark, the hosts were 91/2 and were looking set to reach a total close to 200. However, things changed drastically after that. The Bangla Tigers roared back into the match and started to pick wickets at regular intervals. All of a sudden, Zimbabwe lost the plot and their innings nosedived. In the last 10 overs, they managed only 61 runs and ended up losing all the 8 remaining wickets. A big collapse and as a result, Bangladesh didn't have a big target to chase.
A commanding win for Bangladesh and they take an early lead in the series once again. In pursuit of 153, the Bangla openers smashed a century stand and put the chase to bed very early. The pair of Sarkar and Naim started cautiously in the first three overs but then opened their arms. They played plenty of delightful shots on their way to a match-winning partnership. Zimbabwe's bowling was flat, to say the least as they struggled for breakthroughs. They did show some intensity in the field towards the end but the match had already slipped away from them by then.

He wants the second run also and starts to run for it without looking at his partner. Naim realizes late that Mahmudullah is not interested and has to turn and run. Meanwhile, the throw comes to the bowler's end and Sikandar Raza intervenes before it can reach the bowler. He fumbles too and deflects it away. Naim gets the chance to dive safely inside the crease. Had Sikandar allowed the ball to go to the bowler, it would have been a simple run out chance.

Richard Ngarava To Soumya Sarkar OUT!
OUT! Chakabva has pulled off a miraculous run out, Dhoni-esque. Sarkar gets run out while attempting the second run. What an excellent piece of work by the wicketkeeper. Full in length and around off, Sarkar closes the face of his bat and works it through mid-wicket. He rushes back for the second run and the fielder fires a flat throw wide of the stumps at the striker's end. Chakabva runs across to his right, doesn't collect the ball and instead flicks it onto the stumps without looking behind. The appeal is made and it's referred upstairs. The replays find Sarkar short of the crease. Spectacular work by Regis. A fine knock by Soumya nonetheless. 51 needed off 41 balls.
Bowling change. Richard Ngarava has been brought back into the attack.

Richard Ngarava To Mohammad Naim
FOUR! Blazed away! Make it three boundaries in the over and Bangladesh are stepping on the gas. Richard Ngarava still tries his luck with a short and wide delivery, it's outside off and Naim cracks it past the right side of the backward point fielder for a boundary. 14 from the over!

FOUR! Naim finally gets one from the middle of his bat and his placement too is excellent. Short in length and outside off, Naim steers it through the gap at point and the ball races away. Three fielders were interested initially but they soon gave up. The first boundary of the chase comes in the fourth over.

Richard Ngarava To Mohammad Naim
No ball called for overstepping! Richard Ngarava starts with a short delivery wide outside off, Naim flashes and misses. Hang on a second, the replays show that it was not a no ball and the bowler is really unlucky to be called out. Free Hit coming up...
Bowling change. Richard Ngarava comes in to replace Wesley Madhevere.

Terrific start from Zimbabwe, only 9 runs in the first three overs. Short and wide outside off, SS cuts but finds point. A tidy over but Blessing Muzarabani was lucky too as a few bad balls were not put away in the gap.

Blessing Muzarabani To Soumya Sarkar
Run out chance missed! Short in length and on off, Sarkar rocks back to punch it in the direction of mid off and sets off for a run. But Tadiwanashe Marumani shows great awareness from extra cover as he moves across to his left and stops the ball with a dive. The fielder loses his balance and hence his back flick has not much power and it rolls towards the bowler's end. Sarkar survives. A better throw and he was gone for all money.
