Full Highlights Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 1st ODI 12th August 2011
Vusi Sibanda anchored Zimbabwe's chase and was unlucky to miss out on his hundred
Zimbabwe 186 for 6 (Sibanda 96, Rubel 4-26) beat Bangladesh 184 (Mushfiqur 59, Shakib 53, Vitori 5-30) by four wickets
Despite a late wobble, Zimbabwe chased a below-par total with relative ease after Brian Vitori sliced through the Bangladesh top order to become the first Zimbabwe bowler to take five wickets on ODI debut. The chase was anchored by a mature innings from Vusi Sibanda, who coped easily with Bangladesh's arsenal of left-arm spinners and made sure that the late strikes from Rubel Hossain were in vain.
Bangladesh's bowlers were inconsistent early on and they posed little threat to the Zimbabwe batsmen, in contrast to the way Zimbabwe's bowlers had executed their plans when the visitors batted. Led by debutant left-arm seamer Vitori, Zimbabwe restricted Bangladesh to 184 on a flat pitch. Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim put on a century partnership for the sixth-wicket to resuscitate the innings, which stood on the brink of implosion at 43 for 5 in the 17th over, but it did not do enough to post a defendable total.
