Bijoy reveals Zim chasing 304 shocked Tigers

Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batter Anamul Haque Bijoy revealed Bangladesh were shocked after hosts Zimbabwe chased a high target of 304 runs in the first match of the recently concluded three-match ODI series.

Promise of fearlessness breeds more fear

Bangladesh left for Zimbabwe with the aim to play fearless cricket but after dismal performances saw the visitors lose both three-match T20I and ODI series, it seems the Tigers will return home laden with fear.

In their landmark 400th ODI, Bangladesh were asked to bat by hosts Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club today. 

Tigers’ final chance to find ‘the answers’

Before the ongoing Zimbabwe tour, Bangladesh were flying high in the ODI format, with series wins away to South Africa and West Indies. But suddenly, after two successive defeats against a side ranked eight places below in space of just three days, the Tigers now seem to be in a disarray in their most preferred format. 

'Obstacles motivate me'

Since debuting on the international stage in 2013 through an ODI against Bangladesh in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe all-rounder Sikandar Raza has demonstrated his fighting prowess, on and off the field, time and again. The 36-year-old, who is enjoying a phenomenal run of form of late, keeps scaling greater heights with each passing game at an age when most good quality cricketers go into decline. Raza shared his views about his and side's game, also how he views the current Bangladesh team and more, in an interview with The Daily Star's Ekush Tapader, the excerpts of which are as follows:

‘It was crucial for Mahmudullah to gain confidence’

It was a rather unusual yet a vital knock from Mahmudullah Riyad as the experienced cricketer played an unbeaten 80 off 84 balls to guide Bangladesh in posting a fighting total of 290 for nine against Zimbabwe in the second and series-saving ODI in Harare yesterday.

'The four hundreds made the difference in the series'

Sikandar Raza's splendid second consecutive hundred, along with skipper Regis Chakabva's maiden ODI ton, led Zimbabwe to a five-wicket victory against Bangladesh in the second ODI in Harare yesterday, thereby sealing the three-match ODI series with a game in hand. It was the hosts' first ODI series win against Bangladesh after nine years.

Zimbabwe clinch first ODI series against Tigers since 2013

Sikandar Raza’s second ton in consecutive matches and skipper Regis Chakabva’s 75-ball 102, saw Zimbabwe clinch the second ODI by five wickets to clinch their first ODI series against Bangladesh since 2013.

Mahmudullah anchors Bangladesh to 290

Mahmudullah Riyad scored his 26th ODI half-century as Bangladesh posted a challenging total of 290 for nine against Zimbabwe in the second ODI at the Harare Sports Club on Tuesday.

Sluggish Mahmudullah gearing up for the launch?

Mahmudullah Riyad and Afif Hossain played contrasting knocks as Bangladesh looked to post a challenging total on the board in the second ODI against Zimbabwe in Harare on Tuesday.

Bangladesh bat again with three changes

Bangladesh have lost the toss for the fifth time in five games on their tour to Zimbabwe. The Tigers, who lost the first ODI by five wickets, were asked to bat first by Zimbabwe captain Regis Chakabva in the second ODI in Harare on Tuesday.

Raza shows pressure makes diamonds

The best of players are known to crave the pressure of performing against the wind, when chips are down. On Friday, Sikandar Raza made audiences witness once again that pressure makes diamonds as his gem of a knock, a 109-ball 135, entered into Zimbabwe cricket folklore.  

Smarter approach needed to save series

Before the first ODI, Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal was of the opinion that the Tigers were favourites going into the three-match series against Zimbabwe. But he did warn that Bangladesh would have to play their best cricket to beat the hosts.
