It was not a perfect start for Bangladesh in reply to Zimbabwe’s 156 runs in the third and final T20I at the Harare Sports Club in Harare on Tuesday.

The Tigers lost two early wickets. Litton Das who score a fifty in the previous match was playing positive cricket but could not carry on. Victor Nyauchi removed him. Litton made 13 off six deliveries. 

Later, Parvez Hossain Emon walked off who scored just two runs from six balls. It was Nyauchi’s second wicket of the game.

Wesley Madhevere joined the party afterward as he removed Anamul Haque Bijoy. Najmul Hossain Shanto was the fourth batter to leave the crease. Sean Williams was the wicket-taker.

Post that, Mahmudullah Riyad and Afif Hossain were looking sharp as they made a 39 runs partnership.

However, a double strike from Brad Evans put the visitors in huge trouble. He removed Mahmudullah and Tiger skipper Mosaddek Hossain in back-to-back deliveries. Mahmudullah walked off after making 27 while Mosaddek could not score any run. 

After the end of fifteen overs, Bangladesh were 99 for six. Afif Hossain and Mahedi Hasan were in the middle.
