Zimbabwe steered to a 23-run win over Bangladesh as Wellington Masakadza took three wickets and three catches in the second Twenty20 international at the Harare Sports Club on Friday.
It was Zimbabwe’s first success over the tourists after losing the one-off Test, three ODIs and the first of the three-match T20I series on Thursday and sets up a decider on Sunday.
Zimbabwe, which won the toss and chose to bat, scored 166-6 with Wesley Madhevere contributing 73, to which Bangladesh replied with 143 in 19.5 overs.
Madhevere provided the foundation with his knock, with powerful hitter Ryan Burl adding 34 not out while Shoriful Islam took 3-33.
Bangladesh, dominant with the bat across all formats of the tour, this time failed to get the better of the home bowlers as first Blessing Muzarabani and then Masakadza got among the wickets.
Masakadza took 3-20 and Muzarabani 2-21 while the former also took three catches in the deep to help his team’s cause.
