The one-off Test between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, being played at the Harare Sports Club in Zimbabwe, saw proceedings take an unexpected turn when a hilarious dance move by Bangladesh tail-ender Taskin Ahmed culminated into an angry spat against opposition pacer Blessing Muzarabani. Things became heated when Taksin showed off a dance move soon after leaving a short delivery, and action that didn’t go down well with the bowler. Muzarabani glared at the batsman as his follow through took him right next to Taksin. Things turned uglier when both players engaged in an eyeball-to-eyeball face-off as their heads came together.
Now this is something!
Muzarabani and Taskin get into each other’s faces!

Taksin looked particularly charged up as he gestured towards the bowler to return to his run-up with a smirk on his face.
