Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe amid dramatic scenes in a last-ball finish | Cricket News


Bangladesh survived intense drama and a chaotic final before Zimbabwe by three runs in a T20 World Cup Group 2 thriller in Brisbane on Sunday.
Electing to bat, the Asian side posted a competitive 150-7, riding Najmul Hossain’s career-best 71 at the Gabba.
Zimbabwe slumped to 35-4 in the encounter, but Sean Williams’ brave 64 left them needing 16 runs from Mosaddek Hossain’s last over.

Zimbabwe scored 11 runs off the first five deliveries and Blessing Muzarabani was stumped off the sixth, sparking celebrations in the Bangladesh camp.
The stumps were drawn and the players left, but the TV umpire ruled the final delivery a no-ball as the wicketkeeper, Nurul Hasan, collected the ball in front of the stumps, not behind, before stumping Muzarabani.
It was a declared no-ball but Mosaddek held his ground and sent a final delivery which Muzarabani failed to connect.
