Visiting Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh by 151 runs in the first Test of the two-match series at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

ESPNcricinfo adds: The moment arrived at 1:46pm on the fourth afternoon in Sylhet. Ariful Haque swung hard at Wellington Masakadza, but suffered a fate that most Bangladesh batsmen have off late, his top edge being caught by a jubilant Regis Chakabva.

Zimbabwe fought odds that were stacked against them, but won most sessions in the game with patient batting and bowling. They held their catches too, and dismantled Bangladesh for 169 all out, winning by 151 runs.

It is only their third overseas Test win and first since November 2001, when the world of cricket was considerably different.
