Zimbabwe had a horror day on the field as they fumbled a golden chance to beat Bangladesh in the fourth T20I of a five-match series on Friday. Bangladesh lower-order batter Mustafizur Rahman survived two run outs in a single delivery, courtesy of Johnathan Campbell’s fumble at the non-striker’s end. The incident occurred on the second delivery of the 20th over of Bangladesh’s innings Tanvir Islam and Mustafizur were involved in a mix-up. Zimbabwe, however, failed to capitalise, not once but twice.

The visitors produced a couple of brainfade moments of their own as Mustafizur survived twice. First, Blessing Muzarabani missed a direct hit at the striker’s end. And last but not the least, Cambpell fumbled after a throw at the striker’s end as he underarmed the ball wide off the target from close range.

Coming back to the match, Shakib Al Hasan claimed 4-35 to help Bangladesh recover from a batting collapse and beat Zimbabwe by five runs.

Mustafizur Rahman chipped in with 3-19, helping the home side bowl out Zimbabwe for 138 runs in 19.4 overs.

Replying to a modest 143, Zimbabwe lost opener Brian Bennett for a duck in the first over and were quickly reduced to 57-4.

But they remained in contention after a middle-order rally, with Johnathan Campbell and Ryan Burl putting on a 35-run stand.

Mustafizur forced Burl to give a catch to Soumya Sarkar after making 19 runs, and Shakib took the wicket of Campbell for 31 to put Bangladesh on top.

Wellington Masakadza played hit 19 runs from eight balls to take Zimbabwe close, only to go off the strike in the final over when Zimbabwe needed 14.

Shakib, who was playing his first T20I in nearly a year, dismissed Blessing Muzarabani and Richard Ngarava in the final over to wrap up the Zimbabwe innings.

Sent in to bat after Zimbabwe won the toss, Bangladesh got off to a flying start when openers Tanzid Hasan Tamim and Soumya made a 101-run stand for the first wicket.

Luke Jongwe dismissed Tanzid for 52 off 37 balls to break the opening partnership and then Soumya fell in the same over for 41.

The hosts lost their remaining eight wickets for just 35 runs to be bowled out for the first time in the series.

The hosts lead the series 4-0 with the final game on Sunday.
