Opener Najmul Hossain Shanto and pacers Taskin Ahmed and Mustafizur Rahman shone for Bangladesh as the Tigers defeated Zimbabwe by three runs in a T20 World Cup Super 12 clash that swayed back and forth till the last moment at the Gabba in Brisbane on Sunday. 

After Shanto's career-best 55-ball 71 helped Bangladesh post a challenging 150 for seven, it required a run-out and an eventful final over, featuring two wickets, a six, a four leg-bye, and a no-ball, for the Tigers to restrict a high-flying Zimbabwe to 147 for eight to clinch a thrilling win in order to keep their semifinal hopes alive.
