Tigers won the biggest margin in ODI cricket.The Tigers, who stopped Zimbabwe by 152 runs, gave them a big win by 163 runs. This is Bangladesh’s biggest win in ODI cricket. The 50-run win against Sri -Lanka on January 2018 was the biggest win for Bangladesh in the ODI. In another way, this victory is important. After losing Afghanistan in the June-July World Cup, Bangladesh lost the victory in the 50 over cricket. Bangladesh cricketers are enjoying a one-day win after losing five matches today.
From the beginning, Tope was a Zimbabwean batsman. Not once did they think they could challenge the bowlers of Bangladesh. Saifuddin bowled his first and Tinashe Kamunhutamwe in the second over of the innings. Then there is a small resistance of Regis Chakava and Chamu Chivawar. But it was Saifuddin himself. This time he trapped Chakava in the LBW. Skipper Mashrafe bin Mortaza came to the bowling with a slight expense in the first over, but was hit shortly afterwards. Chibhava caught Long Owen Mahmudullah by his ball. Zimbabwe lost 3 wickets for 23 runs and then lost the wicket at regular intervals. Left-arm spinner Tajul Islam then bowled Brendan Taylor. Although the pair were then formed between Sikandar Raja and Wesley Madhavere, they could not make much profit. King Mohammad Mahmudullah caught the ball of Mostafizur Rahman at the top of the team. He scored 32 runs off 18 balls. Mehedi Hassan returned to Madhavere by catching Mashrafe off the leg of Mirage. Zimbabwe’s highest score of 35 runs came from Madhevre’s bat.
Richmond Mutumbami and Tenotenda Motumbadzi tried to build a pair. But he could not go more than 22 runs. Mutumbami runs out. Mashrafei returns to Mutumbadzi’s Saifuddin’s catch. Mashrafe, who took the wicket after a long 254 balls, took 2 wickets today. Last year, after getting 3 wickets against the West Indies in Dublin, he came after 11 matches and saw multiple wickets in a match. Another reason to remember Mashrafe today is Sylhet’s match. He took over as the fifth player in ODIs to replace Mottumbadzi, who took 100 wickets.
Mashrafe’s mind must be relaxed. However, winning everything in one-day international has been the biggest relief for Bangladesh.
