Harare: Mehdi Hasan Miraj and Taskin Ahmed took four wickets each as Bangladesh bowled out Zimbabwe for 256 in the second innings to register a massive 220-run victory in the one-off Test here on Sunday.
Zimbabwe had a tough target of 477 runs. Captain Brendan Taylor scored 92 while Donald Tiripano contributed 52 runs. Zimbabwe started playing at 140 for three in the morning but their middle order faltered.
Zimbabwe’s tail batsmen struggled a bit, but apart from extending Bangladesh’s wait, they could only reduce the margin of defeat. Number 10 batsman Blessing Mujarbani remained unbeaten on 30. For Bangladesh, Mehdi Hasan took four for 66 and Taskin took four for 82.
Batting first, Bangladesh scored 468 runs in their first innings with the help of Mahmudullah’s unbeaten 150 and half-centuries from captain Mominul Haque (70), Litton Das (95) and Taskin (75), despite a top-order faltering in the match.
Zimbabwe also started well, but losing the last eight wickets for 51 runs, their team could only manage 276 runs in the first innings. Bangladesh declared their second innings to end with 284 for one. Shadman Islam scored an unbeaten 115 and Najmul Hossain scored 117 not out from his side. Now a series of three ODIs and as many T20 International matches will be played between these two teams from July 16.
