Popular News

Bangladesh scored 256 runs after losing nine wickets in the first innings in a dead-rubber third one-day international against series winners Zimbabwe in Harare on Wednesday.

Middle-order batter Afif Hossain top scored with an unbeaten 85 while Anamul Haque amassed 76 for Bangladesh.

A cautious 39 from Mahmudullah Riyad was the other significant Bangladeshi knock as they reached their lowest total in the series having scored 303 runs in the first ODI and 290 in the second.

Jongwe and Brad Evans took two wickets each for Zimbabwe, who have won nine of 10 ODI and T20 matches since former captain Dave Houghton began a second stint as coach in June.
