The match will begin at 1400 local (0800 GMT). We will love your company for that game. Till then, it is goodbye from our side.

    Tamim Iqbal is named Man of the Match for his brilliant century. Iqbal says that credit for his performance goes to the team management as they kept trusting him and told him that it will come good soon.

On their bowling, the Bangladeshi skipper feels that the wicket was really good for batting. Adds that bowling was difficult but it was not too bad.

    Earlier in the day, Bangladesh ended with a huge total of 322/8, courtesy of a special knock from Tamim Iqbal. His 158 along with supports from Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah and Mohammad Mithun helped them amass the total. It was a tough day for the bowlers in general and the Zimbabwe bowlers suffered too. Carl Mumba and Donald Tiripano grabbed two wickets each but were expensive in their efforts. Stay tuned for the presentation...

    Bangladesh almost shot themselves on the foot with the ball but managed to survive a big upset. The bowlers started off well and were good in the middle too but they were not able to pick up wickets. They lost the plot towards the end and almost snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Shafiul Islam and the returning Al-Amin Hossain had a nightmare towards the end. Though the latter managed to hold his nerves in the final over, he had a torrid time and went for 85 in his 10 overs. Shafiul Islam, on the other hand, conceded 76 from 9 overs. Taijul Islam was the star with the ball as he ended up with a 3-wicket haul. The win was made difficult by the fielders as the hosts were sloppy in the field and dropped plenty of chances that almost came back to bite them. In the end, the home team held their nerves and got over the finish line.

    Chasing 323, Zimbabwe lost Regis Chakabva and Brendan Taylor early. Tinashe Kamunhukamwe though kept his end intact and built partnerships. The tourists were lagging behind the required run rate but fifties from Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Wesley Madhevere and Sikandar Raza gave them hope and kept them in the hunt but when they lost Raza they had just 3 wickets in hand and still needed 98 in 43. It looked done and dusted but Donald Tiripano had other ideas. He came out with intent and went berserk. He put up a quickfire stand of 80 off just 45 balls with Mutombodzi. They dragged the game till the last ball but Tiripano's heroics was not enough to get his side over the line.

    WOW! What a game of cricket we have witnessed! They say it is not over until it's over and Zimbabwe just proved that. They couldn't get over the line but they sent chills across Bangladesh with their spirited fight. A great, great innings with the bat from Donald Tiripano. Yes, he ends up on the wrong side of the result but he has shown the passion, the courage and the desire that these Zimbabwe players had.

    Al-Amin Hossain to Donald Tiripano

    Just a single! Al-Amin keeps his nerves and seals the game and series for his side. A full ball just outside off, it is in the slot but Tiripano is backing away a bit and all he can do is drive it to long off for a run. BANGLADESH WIN BY 4 runs.

    0 49.5
    Al-Amin Hossain to Donald Tiripano

    A dot! Top bouncer from Al-Amin. It is aimed at the head of the batter. Tiripano looks to pull but misses. Six to win of the final ball.
