Nasir Hossain almost single-handedly gave Bangladesh a competitive total in the first ODI, lifting the visitors to 269 for 8 after they had slipped to 94 for 4 despite Zimbabwe's poor discipline with the ball.
All the top batsmen gave away their wickets through soft dismissals, poor calling or having a slog later in the innings. Shingi Masakadza was the biggest beneficiary, taking four wickets for 51 runs.
It was a frustrating morning session for the home side as they gave away 32 extras, including 18 wides. Nasir's knock was the only quality element of the innings. His 67-ball 68 rescued Bangladesh from major embarrassment, especially as this was the first completely batsman-friendly pitch on tour. Despite the middle-order collapse, Nasir batted with dominance, finding boundaries regularly. He struck the ball very well, piercing the off-side field from the start.
His energy at the crease mattered in the fifth and sixth wicket partnerships with Mominul Haque, someone still trying to get into grips with the one-day game, and Mahmudullah, an out of touch batsman. Nasir struck seven fours and a six, particularly going after Prosper Utseya. He scored 37 off 32 balls faced from the offspinner, hitting him for four boundaries and the six over long-on.
