Mustafizur takes the final wicket ; Zim all out for 170

Mustafizur takes the final wicket ; Zim all out for 170

Mustafizur Rahman, the 'cutter master', strikes again as batsman Blessing Muzarabani completely missed the line of the cutter. Ball clips the off stump as Zimbabwe finish on 170 all-out from 48. 6 overs.

Rubel Hossain is the hero of the death overs. He came on to bowl in the 48th over and bowled Moor with a tremendous yorker. Moor was looking dangerous on 33 but he could not cope with the Rubel's fiery yorker. Next ball, Tendai Chatara dragged Rubel's delivery onto his stumps as the bowler was in for a hattrick. Rubel dissapointed the crowd with his hattrick ball as his delivery outside the off stump was left well alone by Muzarabani.

Rubel Hossain takes a fantastic catch in the deep, diving forward to take a low catch to remove Graeme Cremer off the bowling of Shakib Al Hasan. Shakib picks up his third wicket in this match, having already struck twice in his very first over.

Peter Moor has managed to pick up a few boundaries as Zimbabwe managed to reach the 150-run mark. Moor hit a long hop from Shakib in the 44th over as Zimbabwe are looking to reach a competetive score having already lost six wickets.

Bangladesh manage to get the all-important wicket of Sikandar Raza as Zimbabwe lost their sixth wicket.

It has been a lively performance from the Tigers this morning and an excellent throw found Raza short of his crease.

Raza reached his half century in style as he danced down the wicket to Nasir Hossain and lifted him over cover for four.

Bangladesh had managed to dry up the boundaries as Zimbabwe looked to consolidate. That changed when Mashrafe came back into the attack in the 37th over. The skipper conceeded just 13 runs in his first six overs but strayed down the leg side and the ball missed everything and went for bye four on the third delivery.

Nasir Hossain came on to bowl his first over and in his fourth delivery, he managed to hit right-handed batsman Peter Moor on the pads. Bangladesh went up in a loud appeal but they were turned down as ball was hitting outside the line.

Raza, who is unbeaten on a 78-ball 42, reached his highest score against Bangladesh and has managed to pick up the necessary singles while also hitting two sixes and a four in his innings.

Malcolm Waller left as Sunzamul Islam made amends for the catch he dropped in the very same over as Shakib took a fine catch at slip cordon. Zimbabwe lost their fifth wicket with the score at 81 in the 26th over.

Since then Zimbabwe have looked to recover as Sikandar Raza has managed to survive the onslaught from Tigers' bowlers.

Rubel Hossain managed to get the edge of the slashing blade of Malcolm waller but Nasir Hossain dropped the catch at slip. There were a few boundaries as Zim looked to recover from the early slump.

Mustafizur Rahman strikes as he managed to get Brendon Taylor to hang his bat away from the body who only manages to edge it through to the wicket-keeper.

It has been a fantastic spell from Mustafizur as the ball has zipped around quite a bit. He has managed to square the right-handed batsmen up with his outswingers quite frequently. The cutters are working effectively as well in what looks like a promising start to the series for the left-armer from Satkhira. He has bowled five over and conceeded 13 runs.

Masharafe struck in the eighth over to remove Hamilton Masakadza for 15 as he was caught by Mushfique Rahim. Bangladesh started the match with the spin duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Sunzamul Islam. It paid dividends really early on as Shakib struck twice in the very first over. Zimbabwe are 48/3 with their experienced batsmen at the crease in the form of Brendon Taylor, who returned to the Zim setup after a long absence and batsman Sikandar Raza.

Did Akshay call Twinkle an elephant?

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Trust Twinkle Khanna to be witty and funny at the same time. In her recent blog in the Times of India, titled 'What an African safari teaches us about need vs greed', Twinkle shared her experience from a safari in South Africa.

While the family made plans to go, Twinkle soon discovered that it was a four-hour drive each way from their house.

Let's just cancel the safari and get a refund! I hollered at the man of the house from the shower stall. Their website clearly states refunds are not possible,' he yelled back.

Right at that moment, I had a eureka moment though unlike the excitable Archimedes, I didn't leave the bathroom and start running naked on the street. I have an idea. Just call them and say that one member of our group passed away last night and according to our religion, one cannot leave a dead body alone for the first 48 hours! So either they give us a refund or tell them we'll just have to bring the corpse along.

The man of the house did not seem amused, 'Sometimes I think you are insane! I am doing no such thing, we are going and that's final.

And later, something really funny happened and it was none other than Akshay Kumar taking a dig at his wife in the most subtle way.

Elephants form deep family bonds like us,' he explained. Last year, one of our younger elephants died and I saw the rest of the herd gather around it to mourn. They didn't leave the body for days.

My wife is very much like an elephant! And when I gave him a nasty glare, the man of the house hastily added, 'Oh I didn't mean size wise! Just the way she believes in keeping her family close and their corpses even closer!

Now that's hilarious! Don't you think?

On the professional front, Akshay Kumar's PadMan (produced by Twinkle Khanna) is all set to clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat on January 25.

When a leading daily asked PadMan producer Twinkle Khanna about the clash, she said: "It's not pleasant for both [the parties] and will impact both. But they have also been through enough of their own hurdles. But I wish they would have come a week earlier or a week after us preferably. I am sure Mr [Sanjay Leela] Bhansali has made a wonderful movie but we are very confident of our content.

So, I am not apprehensive, and we are not going to move or anything because we are very happy with what [date] we have. laughs). He has been making relevant choices. He has also been undergoing a personal evolution. What I find remarkable, as somebody who has been with him for almost 18 years now, is that he isn't afraid to take leaps and change with times and grow. Even his thought process vis-à-vis what he would think 10 years ago and now, is evolving. That's [how] all of us [are] at this age.
