Visiting Bangladesh cricket team had a good 50-over practice outing, despite the warm up match getting called off during Zimbabwe Select XI's chase due to bad light at Takashinga Sports Club in Harare Wednesday.

The biggest positive for the visiting team was getting back ODI captain Tamim Iqbal, who overcame injury concerns and took part in the game.

The left-handed opening batsman topped the Bangladesh innings with a half-century.

The touring side however, will miss the services of wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim for the remainder of the series involving three ODIs and as many T20s after the cricketer opted to return home due to family emergency.

As per reports, Mushfiq’s parents have tested Covid-19 positive and shifted from Bogra to the capital city for better treatment.

Bangladesh in the practice game batted first after winning the toss and saw captain Tamim lead from the front with 66 runs.

The 62-ball innings was laced with 11 boundaries and one over boundary and boosted the visitors to a total of 296 for six at the end of 50 overs.

Mohammad Mithun and Mosaddek Hossain went back to the dressing room retired not out scoring 39 and 36 respectively.

Shakib al Hasan batting at No 3 added 37 to the board.

Liton Das was perhaps the only Bangladesh batsman to leave the field unhappy.

The right-handed batsman was thought to have come out of a below-par form with his 95 in the lone Test.

But as it happened in the practice game, Liton failed to judge the spin off Tanaka Chivanga and perished after a stumping dismissal scoring only two runs.

Defending the target, Bangladesh bowlers dominated the home team before the innings got called off owing to bad light.

Zimbabwe Select XI had 189 on the board for the loss of seven wickets.

Right-arm pacers Saifuddin and Ebadat Hossain and off-spinner Mosaddek picked up two wickets each.

Left-arm pacer Shariful Islam bagged one scalp while Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam and Afif Hossain remained wicketless.

Bangladesh will take on Zimbabwe in the three-match ODI series starting Friday.

The second and third game of the series will be played Sunday and Tuesday respectively.

The 50-over matches will be followed by the shorter format of the game.

The three matches will be played on July 23, 25 and 27 respectively.

All the matches will be played at Harare Sports Club behind closed doors.
