Bangladesh require 153 runs to win against Zimbabwe

Bangladesh require 153 runs to win against Zimbabwe in the first of  three-match T20 International series at the Harare Sports Club on Thursday.

The match started at 4.30 PM as per Bangladesh Standard Time.

The match is the Bangladesh’s 100th in this format which they want to make memorable with a victory.

Bangladesh incidentally played their first T20 matches against Zimbabwe under the captaincy of Shahriar Nafees in 2006 and won the game by 43 runs. Mashrafe Bin Mortaza was adjudged man of the match in that game.

The Tigers played three matches in this year, all against New Zealand at away and lost all three matches. The 100th match also opened the door for them to end the win-drought in this format this year.

Bangladesh had already won the one-off Test and as it was expected they inflicted a whitewash on Zimbabwe in a three-match series, showing absolute domination.
