Watch cricket video highlights between Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe tour of Bangladesh 2024 second twenty/20 International match, played at Chattogram.

The second Twenty20 International between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh was won by Bangladesh by six wickets thanks to Towhid Hridoy’s cool head and pressure-releasing boundaries. With six wickets and nine balls remaining, the home team chased down the target of 139 to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. In his unbroken 37 off 25 balls, Hridoy hit two sixes and three fours. He also added 31 runs for the fourth wicket with Jaker Ali and 49 more for the fifth wicket with Mahmudullah, who hit a huge six in his unbeaten 26 off 16 balls.

Once again, Bangladesh’s bowlers proved to be the winning factor as they contained Zimbabwe for the second straight game. Once again, Taskin Ahmed led the assault with 2 for 18 in four overs, but legspinner Rishad Hossain stunned Zimbabwe’s middle order with two strikes in an over. The majority of Zimbabwe’s scores came from newcomers Johnathan Campbell and Brian Bennett, who helped them recover from 42 for 5 by scoring 73 runs off 43 balls for the sixth wicket. Bennett struck a perfect 44, but Campbell’s 45 is currently Zimbabwe’s greatest score in a T20I debut.

During the powerplay, Zimbabwe’s top order found it difficult to get going. They continued to hit the fielders or were late with smashes, even though they only lost one wicket (Tadiwanshe Marumani was trapped leg before wicket by Taskin). For the second time in T20 cricket history, they managed just 22 runs in the opening six overs and failed to hit a boundary during that period. Additionally, it was just the second time Bangladesh refused to give up a border during a power struggle.

In the seventh over, Joylord Gumbie managed to reach the boundary, but he was bowled out to mid-off for only 17, the lowest score for a Zimbabwean opener in an innings requiring at least thirty balls. A pivotal moment in the match occurred when Rishad removed both Clive Madande, the highest scorer from the first Twenty20 International, and skipper Sikandar Raza with a double strike in the tenth over. After Craig Ervine mishandled a sweep off Mahedi Hasan in the eleventh over, Zimbabwe was down to 42 for 5, and it looked like they would score another low total.

Son of former Zimbabwe captain Alistair Campbell, Jonathan Campbell played a fast innings on his debut, giving his team something to bowl at. After being dropped while he was on 1, wicketkeeper Jaker Ali attempted to collect the mishit off Mahedi Hasan by running towards square-leg, but was unable. He proceeded to smash three sixes and four fours in his innings of 45 balls from 24 balls, adding 73 for the sixth wicket with Bennett.

In the thirteenth over, Campbell hit the first six for Zimbabwe with a swing against Shoriful Islam, and in the fifteenth over, Bennett hit Taskin over midwicket. In the following two overs, Campbell hit Rishad and Saifuddin for sixes; in the 18th over, Bennett hit Shoriful straight. Bennett provided Zimbabwe a solid finish after dismissing Campbell, striking a four and a six as they took 18 off the last over. Zimbabwe concluded with 138 for 7, and he scored an undefeated 44 off 29 balls.

Bangladesh had a respectable beginning to their pursuit. In the second over, Litton Das, who has been having trouble scoring runs in white-ball cricket this year, blasted Blessing Muzarabani for a six over the wicketkeeper. In the fourth over, Ainsley Ndlovu was hit for his first six by his opening partner Tanzid Hasan. However, in the sixth over, left-arm spinner Ndlovu gave Zimbabwe their first breakthrough when Tanzid misplayed a little faster delivery to midwicket. Things began to happen just when it appeared like Bangladesh was winning the pursuit. Luke Jongwe dropped Litton off Raza on 21. After making the error, Jongwe made amends by taking two wickets in his next over: Litton at backward point for 23 and skipper Najmul Hossain Shanto caught at long-leg.

After keeping the chase steady, Towhid and Jaker Ali began to take up boundaries in the twelfth over. Hridoy smacked Jongwe through point for four, but Jaker hit him over midwicket for his maiden six. When Hridoy softly cut Raza for four through third man, his skill was evident. The 14th over saw Jaker removed by Richard Ngarava, which united Bangladesh’s top finishers. Hridoy and Mahmudullah controlled the chase by scoring 16 off the 17th over from Jongwe, with 33 needed in the final four overs. The game was all but over when Mahmudullah hit Richard Ngarava for a 103-meter six over midwicket, and Hridoy then removed him for another six over fine leg.
