Shakib al-Hasan won without a 96 win as Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by three wickets on Sunday after an exciting runner-up Chase won 2-0 in the three-day series at the Valley Internationals. Zimbabwe made it 240-9 in 50 play-offs, which had a strange end to the entry of captain Brendan Taylor, who reached Bangladesh 242-7 by passing the first ball of the final through Shakib’s quartet. Shakib was named the player of the match that started 39-1 with Bangladesh after the elimination of captain Tamim Iqbal from 10 to 20 to 20.
He had to make 109 deliveries and hit eight quarterbacks.
“Today has been the day I had to raise my hands and I’m very happy,” said Shakib, who took a 2-42 lead before his entry.
“Great credit to Mohammad Saifuddin (28 away) as he showed great composure. Wicket was slower today than Friday in the first match.
“If the boats went straight into the wicket bowl, you had to take a risk. We lost the wickets there.”
After the intervention of television referee Langton Rusere, Taylor had a successful 46th period during the 25th.
Skipper made an attempt at making a save on the left wing but the keeper made a spectacular diving save.
When he passed the ball he threw his bat back into the “shadow” shot and dislodged the guarantee, causing the appeal of a Bangladeshi player – even if the ball was dead.
South African referee Marais Erasmus addressed the incident to Rusere, who dismissed Taylor and walked away from the unfortunate captain.
Taylor did not immediately release his dismissal after praising his team’s “much better performance” after being at 121 on Friday and losing 155 runs.
“Bangladesh didn’t look terrified and it kept getting nervous. You’re talking good things … I hope the last game will go our way,” he said.
After winning the draw, Zimbabwe got off to a bad start, losing cheaply to openers Tinashe Kamunhukamwe (1) and Tadiwanashe Marumani (13).
Wesley Madhevere, who scored just nine on Friday in first place, came in sixth and scored 56 points with a shot that Tamim caught after a spectacular dive.
Shoriful was the biggest hit for the riders who took 4-46 from their 10 overs.
The three matches are part of the World Cup Super League, which, along with the hosts from India, will determine the seven teams that will qualify for the 2023 World Cup straight.
