I could have been Hughes: Mark Vermeulen

I could have been Hughes: Mark Vermeulen

If Phillip Hughes was fatally unlucky to be killed by a single blow of a cricket ball, then Mark Vermeulen is fortunate to still be alive. The Zimbabwe batsman was struck on the head on three different occasions during his career, twice sustaining a fractured skull. The consequences included depression, temporary insanity, an arson attack...

Ban on Shakib’s foreign league goes

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) today lifted the ban on talismanic all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan regarding participating in overseas tournaments.

Earlier on July 7...

BANGLADESH VS ZIMBABWE 5TH ODI

Tigers whitewash Zimbabwe in ODI too

Tigers whitewash Zimbabwe in ODI too

Bangladesh spinners decimated Zimbabwe to fold the visitors’ innings at 128 runs in the fifth and final match of the ODI series at Mirpur. Debutant Taijul Islam picked four wickets, including a hat-trick, to devastate Zimbabwe’s middle order. Shakib Al Hasan claimed three wickets and Jubair Hossain two. Taijul became the first bowler to get a hat-trick on debut in an ODI. Zimbabwe cruised to start their innings despite the early breakthrough by Mashrafe Mortaza. Masakadza hammered his way to a 50. The scoring rate was beyond 5.5 runs an over before the spinners were brought on and Jubair and Shakib clipped two wickets each and reined the run rate. This was by far the lowest total for Zimbabwe among the five ODIs despite the pitch at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium being a batting track.

Tigers one step closer

Tigers one step closer

Zimbabwe lifted their game a little bit but in the end they embraced the same fate as the Tigers made it 4-0 by winning the fourth ODI, which started after observing a minute's silence to mourn the untimely death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes, of the five-match series by 21 runs at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur last night. The visitors for the first time threatened to upset the home side for their first win of the tour through a 106-run fourth-wicket partnership between Brendan Taylor and Solomon Mire. But debuting leg-spinner Jubair Hossain interrupted just in time to break the partnership and put the brakes on Zimbabwe's scoring....

Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by 21 runs in 4th ODI at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium today, leading Tigers the five-match series 4-0.

Hunt for the pace attack

The exclusion of pacer Al-Amin Hossain from the third ODI against Zimbabwe did not create much of a stir in the cricketing fraternity. Maybe it was because of the way he has bowled in the series so far. He gave away 65 runs in 10 overs and picked a wicket in the two...

Series first, then testing

The selectors on Sunday night announced a team only for the third ODI against Zimbabwe which will be held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur tomorrow as they are planning to go for some experimentation in the last two games. And the testing will go on only if the Tigers confirm the...

Tamim, Anamul & then Mash

Tamim, Anamul & then Mash

Captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza must be a happy man. Prior to the second ODI he asked for a team effort and that's exactly what he got in Bangladesh's 68-run win over Zimbabwe at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium here yesterday. And it was Mashrafe himself who led from the front. It looked like a...

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe Test & ODI Series

The century jinx and an odd order

The 158-run stand between Anamul Haque and Tamim Iqbal in the second ODI against Zimbabwe here yesterday was only the sixth time that Bangladesh's openers put up a century partnership in the first innings. Unfortunately, the hosts failed to build on the solid foundation, managing to add just 93 more runs. Oddly enough, statistics show that the Tigers are more prone to collapses and even likely to lose games after their openers gave them a good start. Prior to yesterday's game,...
