Zimbabwe won the toss and chose to bat, finishing on 166-6. It leveled the three-match series at 1-1 after dismissing Bangladesh for 143 in 19.5 overs at Harare Sports Club.

The decider is on Sunday at the same venue.

Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by 220 runs in the one-off test before completing a 3-0 whitewash in the one-day series.

Zimbabwe opener Wessley Madhevere hit 73 on Friday, his measured 57-ball innings turning menacing with five fours and three sixes.

No. 6 Ryan Burl contributed 34 not out off 19.

Shoriful Islam took 3-33 from four overs with his left-arm seam bowling.

Zimbabwe pacer Blessing Muzarabani (2-21) struck early to remove Bangladesh openers Mohammad Naim (5) and Soumya Sarkar (8).

Wickets fell regularly, with Afif Hossain (24) and Shamim Hossain (29) offering some resistance.
