Our dressing room is in very good mental space: Raza
Zimbabwe all-rounder Sikandar Raza continued his purple patch as his unbeaten century helped Zimbabwe to register a historic win over Bangladesh in the first ODI of the three-match series on Friday (August 5).
Chasing a mammoth total, the hosts were in early trouble in pursuit of the competitive target, losing their openers including their stand-in captain Regis Chakabva.
Innocent Kaia and Raza then forged their match-winning partnership as the former grabbed his maiden ODI hundred and the latter his fourth to stun Bangladesh with a five-wicket win in the first match series in Harare.
Raza was unbeaten on 135, including six sixes and eight fours.
Bangladesh, who have been victorious in seven out of nine bilateral ODI series against all the opponents since 2019, won 19 consecutive ODI games against Zimbabwe prior to yesterday but the African side finally brought an end to that long winning run.
