It’s not often that you see a match like this. It’s not often that you see a match like this. What drama. It was a great game! It’s just too good. It may seem too good to be accurate, but it has happened. You can trust us. Another heart-stopping match between Zimbabwe and Pakistan was even better than the last. India-Pakistan is just behind it.
There was more action in the previous over than in some other games. Ngarava struck ten off his next two shots to bring the match back after Evans holed out, and 15 were needed off 4. The real drama began when he got out. After Murabani appeared to be stumped, the players shook hands and went to the dugouts until the third umpire examined where Nurul collected the ball.
It was in front of the stumps, and it was a no-ball. There was no free hit for Muzarabani, so he was free to swing with that last ball. Nevertheless, Mosaddek Hossain remained cool and fired his dot to end the proceedings. In a memorable game, Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by three runs and ended Zimbabwe’s semi-final chances.
Shakib Al Hasan: We will have a bat. There are a lot of runs on the board, and the wicket appears to be very dry. We will need to play our best to win against Zimbabwe, an important game for both teams. As a result of that win against Pakistan, they will be on a high, and we must play our best game. We got one change. Yasir Ali comes in for Mehidy Hasan.
Craig Ervine: Based on the current conditions, I don’t think the weather will change too much throughout the day. It was a beautiful day, and batting first was our top priority. Our trip home from Pakistan the next day meant we didn’t have much time to celebrate, but we know it is the nature of the tournament. The focus must be on today and not on the future. One change needs to be made. Tendai Chatara sits out Luke Jongwe.

Najmul Hossain Shanto:
I needed to bat at the end and come out of the situation successfully. We don’t have any senior players, so we don’t have any extra pressure. It is always our goal and objective to play our best XI. In the next match, I hope to score more runs. Our fans were great; thank you for watching.

We would have taken 147 runs at halfway. The performance of our batting team disappointed me greatly. We had good batters, but both openers were struck out on the powerplay. We didn’t use the new ball well in the first six overs, but we finished well. After sitting out, talking about our mistakes, and training hard to rectify them, we will play our next game.
Bangladesh Won By 3 Runs
The live feed has moved on, so we won’t be hearing from the captains just yet. You will be notified if it occurs. Check back for those quotes. The finish made an incredible game legendary. The final distance was just too far for Zimbabwe in the end. It is still possible for Bangladesh to make it to the semis.
On the other hand, Zimbabwe will have a more challenging time getting there now. For now, we’re calling it a day. The Pakistan-Netherlands match just began as part of today’s triple-header. You can catch that by clicking tabs. I’ll see you soon, and have a great day.
