First it was Hamilton Masakadza, who scored a record-breaking 93 to help Zimbabwe post a formidable total. Then came Tendai Chisoro’s three-wicket haul that applied the brakes on Bangladesh’s chase of 181 as the visitors levelled the series at 2-2 with an 18-run win in Khulna.
While Chisoro picked up the key wickets of Sabbir Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan, Nevill Madziva, the pacer, did the damage at the start and towards the end with the big scalp of Mahmudullah for 54 in the 16th over. Mashrafe Mortaza tried to keep the chase alive, but his dismissal for a 12-ball 22 pulled the plug on Bangladesh’s chase as they were bowled out for 162 in 19 overs.
