     Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: C Mpofu Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur (1 Dec,2010)

Zimbabwe were slight favourites for this match and their good start saw their COW go as high as 56% as they were 52/0 at the end of 9. However Bangladesh spinners wreaked havoc as they did against the Kiwis to ensure none of the Zim batsmen was able to convert their starts in to fifties. Razzak picked up 4 wickets as Zim were bundled out for just 209 in 49 overs with a COW of 42%. With a low target in sight, Bangladesh began cautiously with their openers putting together 44 before Tamim fell in the 11th over. After 20 overs they were well placed at 76/1 with COW of 57% before a collapse saw Zim back in with a shout. Shakib-Al-Hasan fought a lone battle with a fifty as wickets tumbled around him as Bangladesh eventually were all out for 200 to lose the first match by 9 runs.
