Bangladesh hammered Zimbabwe by 121 runs in the first one-day international at Queens Sports Club on Friday.

Nasir Hossain starred with the bat, making 68 to help the tourists post 269-8 in in Bulawayo, with the home side responding with just 148 all out.

Ziaur Rahman took an impressive 5-30 as Zimbabwe were skittled in just 32.1 overs as they attempted to chase down the target.

Hossain's 68 from 67 balls dug Bangladesh out of trouble at 94-4 and a lower-order contribution from Mohammad Mahmudullah (36) and a hefty 32 extras from Zimbabwe's wayward bowlers helped them to a healthy total in the end.

Zimbabwe's innings fell away rapidly almost immediately after captain Brendan Taylor (33) and Hamilton Masakadza (38) were dismissed. They never came close to threatening Bangladesh's score.

Rahman took five wickets in nine outstanding overs to put Bangladesh ahead in the ODI contest.
