Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe T20 Highlights: 19-year-old Afif Hossain rescues Bangladesh

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe (Ban vs Zim) T20 Highlights: Hosts Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by 3 wickets with 2 balls to spare in the first match of the T20I tri-series, also involving Afghanistan, in Dhaka on Friday. The hero of the match for Bangladesh was 19-year-old Afif Hossain, who turned the match on its head in the last few overs. When he came to bat, Bangladesh were tottering at 60/6, with all their established batsmen back in the pavilion. He eventually finished with a 26-ball 52.

The toss had been delayed due to a wet outfield and the match was reduced to a 18-overs per side match following the delay. Zimbabwe posted 144/5, courtesy a half-century by Ryan Burl. The Bangladesh chase got off to a terrible start. It looked like Zimbabwe would beat the hosts, till Afif took stage, and along with Mosaddek Hossain, took Bangladesh to victory.
