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.

Zimbabwe: 147 for 8 in 20 overs (Seam Williams 64; Taskin Ahmed 3/19, Mosaddek Hossain 3/37)
