Earlier the host won the toss and elected to bat first against the visitors in the match of three-match.

Wessley Madhevere's 54 runs and Regis Chakabva's 48 runs helped Zimbabwe score 193 for five wickets in stipulated 20 overs.

Soumya Sarkar bagged the highest two wickets while Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin and Shoriful Islam got one wicket each.
