Bangladesh’s bowling, already defeated in the T20 series, remained ineffective in the first ODI as well and could not defend the target of 303 runs.

For this, credit will also have to be given to the Zimbabwe batsmen who gave their team a tremendous victory without giving any chance to the Bangladesh bowlers.
