Shakib stars in B’desh win

Shakib Al Hasan starred with bat and ball to lead Bangladesh to a crushing 87-run victory in the first ODI against Zimbabwe in Chittagong on Friday.

Shakib scored 101 off 99 balls to lead the team to 281-7 and then grabbed 4-41 as the home side dismissed Zimbabwe for 194 in 42.1 overs to take 1-0 lead in the five-match series. Shakib shared 148-runs in a record fifth-wicket partnership with Mushfiqur Rahim to help Bangladesh recover from 4-70 to a competitive score after they were put in to bat first.

Shakib, who also had a hand in Bangladesh's previous highest fifth-wicket stand of 119 runs against South Africa in 2008, struck 10 fours.
