The ZIMBABWE cricket team captain, Hamilton Masakadza, was full of praise for his charges after they had won an historic home test victory in nearly two decades after his 151-win win over Bangladesh in Sylhet on Tuesday.
The famous victory that was also the first of Zimbabwe against the Tigers, since 2001 and the first one in the longest format since 2013 has been built to the bottom of an excellent comprehensive performance both from the batman and the players who was well complemented by a brilliant work in the field .
Directed by innings in the mid-centuries of Masakadza, Sean Williams and Peter Moor and impressive performances by the Kyle Jarvis bowling quartet, Tendai Chatara, Brandon Mavuta and Sikandar Raza, Zimbabwe challenged the odds of making a memorable screen.
"The boys worked hard and applied well to give an excellent total in the first entries. We are ecstatic. The boys had time to stay in the wicket and accumulate races," Masakadza said during the presentation ceremony after the match.
"The batting performance in the first tickets fixed it for us. I thought bowling players were shining to the right, as we landed in Bangladesh. I do not think they did a lot of damage. It was great to see that our spit out more than the surface Bangladeshi of Bangladesh ".
Williams, who took his form from cricket limited to the series of tests, said he was pleasantly surprised to be named Man of the Match, after score 88 and 20 in the two innings.
"I did not expect to get this award but I am going to enjoy this in the changing room. It took me a long time to enter this wicket. Unfortunately, I did not get the 12 I needed for my century, but it was good to spend time and score crucial careers," he added.
The second and final test will begin in Dhaka on Sunday with Zimbabwe eager to complete a series of lime.
