Tamim spurs Bangladesh


Zimbabwe’s weakness against spin was exposed again as the visitors were bundled out for 196 in 41.1 overs with left-arm spinner Enamul Haque picking up three vital wickets when the visitors looked to be controlling the proceedings.

In reply, Tamim Iqbal played a brilliant half century and Mohammad Ashraful (63) returned to form to guide the hosts to an easy four wickets victory in 40.4 overs, despite some late hiccups.

Tamim, who was declared man of the match, said he rued missing the century. “I am not happy. I did not complete the job. But the boys are playing good cricket.”
