Bangladesh survived intense drama and a chaotic final to edge Zimbabwe by three points in one T20 World Cup Group 2 thriller in Brisbane on Sunday.
MATCH HIGHLIGHTS
Choosing to bat, the Asian team posted a competitive score of 150-7, overlapping Najmul Hossain’s career-best 71 at the Gabba.
Zimbabwe fell to 35-4 on the power play but Sean Williams’ valiant 64 left them needing 16 points in the final against Mosaddek Hossain.

Zimbabwe scored 11 points from the first five deliveries and Blessing Muzarabani was blocked on the sixth, prompting celebration in the Bangladesh camp.
The stumps had been pulled out and the players left, but the TV referee ruled the final delivery a no ball as wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan had collected the ball in front of the stumps, not behind, before crashing into Muzarabani.
It was a declared no-ball, but Mosaddek kept his cool and sent in a final delivery that Muzarabani couldn’t connect.
