AIR
Riding on the back of a scintillating performance by its batsmen, Bangladesh defeated Zimbabwe by 48 runs in the first T 20 match played in Dhaka tonight.

Sent in to bat first, Bangladesh scored 200 for 3 wickets with Litton Das and Soumya Sarkar displaying fine batting for the host country at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Monday.

Zimbabwe collapsed for 152 all out in 19 overs to lose the match by 48 runs in Dhaka. Mustfizur Rahman and Aminul Islam contributed in the collapse of the Zimbabwe team by claiming three wickets each.

Litton continued with his good batting form scoring 59 off 39 balls to help Bangladesh reach 200 for 3 in 20 overs. Soumya Sarkar scored an unbeaten 62 off 32 balls. The opening pair of Littton Das and Tamim Iqbal scored a solid 92 for the first wicket. Tamim scored 41 off 33 balls.

The second T 20 is scheduled to be held on Wednesday. However, in the midst of Corona virus outbreak, Board of Cricket for Bangladesh (BCB) has taken steps to reduce the crowd for the match.

In view of the government’s directive to reduce large gathering as a precautionary measure against outbreak of Corona virus, BCB has decided to sell only one ticket per person for the T 20 match to be played on Wednesday.

BCB has plans to celebrate the centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by organizing a music concert and two T20 matches. However, authorities are monitoring the situation and awaiting instructions from the government regarding these planned events.
