Bangladesh picked up three very quick wickets when Zimbabwe apparently took the control of the match, riding on the persistent batting by the middle oder batsmen, after the tourist had lost three early wickets in the beginning of their innings.  

The host took two wickets, in two consecutive overs, sending back SF Mire in 34th over, and BRM Taylor 35th over, particularly when both the batsmen well settled on the pitch with the half-centuries.

Mire was caught by Mahmudullah bowled by Jubair Hossain at 52.

BRM Taylor caught behind bowled by Rubel Hossain at 63.

The both batsmen were set and collecting runs at a considerable rate.  

The visitors lost three early wickets before crossing 100 after 22 overs  in the fourth match of five match ODI series at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. They scored 156 after 32 overs.

Shakib sent Masakadza and Sibanda to the pavilion while Jubair took the wicket of Maruma. Masakadza made 28, Sibanda 17 and Maruma scored 6.

Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah struck a fighting fifty to lift a struggling Bangladesh to 256 for eight against Zimbabwe at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.

A tremendous 134-run partnership effort by Mushfiqur Rahim (77) and Mahmudullah (82) helps the home side from earlier furor also eyes for a fighting total for Tigers.

Mushfiqur Rahim compiled the fifty to help Bangladesh recover from a precarious position before went to the pavilion at 77, smashing seven boundaries.

His partner Mahmudullah added unbeaten 82 runs, hitting six boundaries.

The hosts lost both Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque within 10 over.

Zimbabwean pace attack also bagged Shakib Al Hasan (1) and Imrul Kayes (5).

Shakib Al Hasan, sent back in a slower delivery of Mire. He scooped it up for a short cover and finally Madziva finished the job in a simple catch.

A Madziva delivery took Imrul Kayes as he goes for a flick towards short midwicket and Brendan Taylor took a stunning one-handed catch. 

Tamim picked out deep in point. It was a fuller delivery of Mire outside off, he spotted an opportunity for a fly over point but Masakadza caught him in a stylish way.

He scored 16 runs off 34 balls.

Anamul Haque had to walk back to the pavilion scoring only 5 runs after a successive LBW appeal by Zimbabwean pacemaker Neville Madziva at the fourth over.

Earlier in the day, Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat first.

The hosts had already sealed the one-day series with two matches left and the home side will be looking to continue their momentum in the fourth match against Zimbabwe in the day.
