Bangladesh hits 186 vs. Zimbabwe in 1st of 5 ODIs

Mushfiqur Rahim hit a half-century Tuesday to lead Bangladesh to 186 against Zimbabwe in the first of five limited-overs internationals.
Rahim made 56 from 78 balls with five fours and received support from lower-order batsman Dollar Mahmud, who smashed 41 off 30, including three sixes and four boundaries.
Rahim and Mahmud put on 54 runs for the ninth wicket before Bangladesh was dismissed with more than three overs to spare.
Zimbabwe allrounder Elton Chigumbura took 3-27 off eight overs after his captain Prosper Utseya won the toss and sent Bangladesh in to bat at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
Chigumbura removed openers Junaid Siddique for 0 and Tamim Iqbal for 5 to reduce Bangladesh to 5-2 in the fourth over. He followed up 11 overs later to dismiss Mohammad Ashraful for 20.
Chamu Chibhabha claimed 2-28 and Kyle Jarvis 2-43, while Ray Price and Graeme Cremer each claimed one wicket.
They shared a 54-run ninth wicket stand helping Bangladesh reach a respectable score with more than three overs to spare.
