Bangladesh win toss, elects to bowl first vs Zimbabwe in 1st T20
13 November 2015, Nirapad News: Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza won the toss and elected to bowl first against Zimbabwe in the first Twenty20 on Friday.

Zimbabwe also made two changes, bringing in left-arm spinner Tendai Chisoro and fast bowler Neville Madziva in place of Chamu Chibhabha and Taurai Muzurabani.
Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Nasir Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza (captain), Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain, Jubair Hossain.
Zimbabwe: Sikandar Raza, Regis Chakabva, Elton Chigumbura (captain), Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Luke Jongwe, Tendai Chisoro, Neville Madziva, Tinashe Panyangara, Graeme Cremer.
