At lunch of day one, Zimbabwe were batting at 80 for one in 30 overs.
Prince Masvuare and Craig Ervine were batting at 45 and 26 respectively. The only wicket Zimbabwe lost was taken by Abu Jayed Rahi who have been developing as the main bowler of Bangladesh in Test cricket for a while now.
Zimbabwe won the toss and opted to bat first with one new face in the playing XI- Charlton Tshuma. The 26-year-old right-arm pacer played five First-class, nine List-A and three T20 matches.
Zimbabwe lost Kevin Kasuza in the last ball of the eighth over when Nayeem Hasan took a regulation catch at the gully area.
