HARARE (Agencies) - Despite a late wobble, Zimbabwe chased down a below-par total with relative ease after Brian Vitori sliced through the Bangladesh top order to become the first Zimbabwe bowler to take five wickets on his ODI debut. The chase was anchored by a mature innings from Vusi Sibanda, who coped easily with Bangladesh's arsenal of left-arm spinners and made sure that a late assault from Rubel Hossain was in vain. Bangladesh's bowlers were inconsistent early on and they posed little threat to the Zimbabwe batsmen, in contrast to the way Zimbabwe's bowlers had executed their plans when the visitors batted. Led by debutant left-arm seamer Vitori, Zimbabwe restricted Bangladesh to 184 on a flat pitch. Shakib al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim's century partnership for the sixth-wicket resuscitated an innings that stood on the brink of implosion at 43 for 5 in the 17th over, but did not do enough to post a defendable total. Together with Chris Mpofu, Vitori made exceptional use of the early bounce on offer and bowled a tight line, offering no width to the Bangladesh batsmen. That forced them to be circumspect in their approach and they made a slow start to their innings as they refused to move their feet or look for singles. After two overs of teasing swing, Vitori offered Tamim Iqbal a short ball and the Bangladesh opener took the bait with a horribly timed pull that was safely taken by Elton Chigumbura at mid-on. Vitori bowled an extended eight-over spell and earned regular reward. Shahriah Nafees was bowled with a delivery that pitched on middle and uprooted leg stump as he tried to drive down the ground. Mohammad Ashraful and Imrul Kayes departed in the 14th over when Ashraful took out his frustration on a short ball that went straight to Mpofu at long leg and Imrul was trapped lbw with a full delivery that came into him and thudded into the front pad. Bangladesh continued to free-fall, and even Chigumbura, who was the least threatening of the bowlers, picked up a wicket, when Mahmudullah slapped a full and wide delivery to backward point. With the change bowlers on, Bangladesh were allowed to relax and Shakib and Mushfiqur approached batting the way Bangladesh should have throughout their innings. They rotated the strike well and took on the spin pair of Propser Utseya and Ray Price, making good use of the sweep shot. Shakib should have been stumped when he was on 17 and danced down the track to an Utseya delivery but Tatenda Taibu was not able to get the bails off in time. The Bangladesh captain capitalised on his lifeline and continued scoring at a good rate all around the wicket to notch up his half century. Mushfiqur provided solid support, puncturing the gaps in a spread field. The pair gathered runs at will and medium-pacer Hamilton Masakadza was brought on in the 36th over to break the partnership. It took him three overs to do so, but he did what was asked of him and removed Shakib, who tried to force one through the covers but could only pop one up to Utseya at short extra. With Shakib gone, Mushfiqur had tried to accelerate but fell in his first attempt, when he attempted a big shot but only succeeded in giving Utseya his 100th ODI wicket.
