The first ODI between host Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will take place Sunday in Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium

A dominant performance with both bat and ball saw the BCB XI defeat the Zimbabweans by eight wickets in their practice match at BKSP in Savar Friday. 

BCB XI captain Soumya Sarkar smashed an unbeaten century while pacer Ebadat Hossain took five wickets conceding just 19 runs. Chasing 179, BCB XI cruised to their target in 39 overs for the loss of just two wickets. 

Mizanur Rahman and Fazle Mammud Rabbi opened the batting for BCB XI. Mizanur (eight) was the first batsman who got out as he was run out in the sixth over. 

All eyes were on Fazle who earned his call-up for the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe, but the left-hander could not manage to score big as he was dismissed for 13 off 34 deliveries. 

Soumya however, was fluent on the other side and played some brilliant shots all over the park. Soumya led from the front and ensured victory as he was unbeaten on 102 facing 114 balls with 13 fours and a six.  

Mosaddek Hossain scored 33 off 48 balls before retiring hurt not out. Ariful Haque was the other unbeaten batsman with nine. 

Earlier, Zimbabweans captain Hamilton Masakadza elected to bat. Ebadat bowled brilliantly in the opening spell and took two wickets. 

Zimbabwe lost wickets in clusters from the very beginning but Masakadza played a superb innings. 

The right-handed opener was cleaned up by Ebadat in the last ball of the 45th over before scoring a magnificent 102 off 138 balls with 14 fours and a six. 

Elton Chigumbura was the second highest scorer for Zimbabwe with 47 off 83 balls. 

Ebadat was the star performer with the ball as he registered three maidens in his nine overs. Saifuddin took three wickets conceding 32 runs while Mohor Sheikh and Imran Ali notched one each. 

The first ODI between host Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will take place Sunday in Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.


BCB XI 189/2 in 39 overs (Soumya 102*, Mosaddek 33 r/h*) beat Zimbabwe 178 in 45.2 overs (Masakadza 102, Ebadat 5/19) by eight wickets
