Masakadza`s triple dents Bangladesh further

Masakadza struck for the third time as Bangladesh lost their 6th wickets on 68 runs as they chasing 167 run set up by Zimbabwe in the second T20I at Harare.

Till this report, Bangladesh were 73/6 in 12 overs. Afif Hossain 7 and Shamim 4 were in the batting.

Opener Wessley Madhevere's career-best 73 off 57 knocks helped host Zimbabwe to post a laudable 165 for five wickets in the second T20I against Bangladesh. Pacer Shoriful Islam took 3 for 33.

Earlier, Zimbabwe won the toss and decided to bowl first in the second T20I against Bangladesh at Harare Sports Club. Wessley Madhevere and Tadiwanashe Marumani opened the innings for Zimbabwe. But their start was not good as young all-rounder Mahedi Hasan struck in his first and innings' second over to remove Zimbabwe Marumani for 3.

Spinner Shakib Al Hasan struck in his second ball to remove dangerous Chakabva for 14 and Zimbabwe lost their second wickets on 42 in 5.2 over.

Wessley Madhevere and Dion Myers added 57 runs for the third wickets stand before the latter was dismissed by Shoriful Islam scoring 26 off 21. 

Although Madhevere was playing good scoring shorts Zimbabwe lost wickets at regular intervals on the other end. Skipper Sikandar Raza (4) was run out from direct through off Soumya. But Ryan Burl's late cameo 19-ball 34 helped Zimbabwe to post 166/6.

Madhevere scored 73 off 57 his innings consist of five fours and three sixes.

For Bangladesh, pacer Shoriful Islam took 3 for 33 while Mahedi Hasan and Shakib Al Hasan took one wicket each.
