Bangladesh's bowlers fought back to restrict Zimbabwe to 246 for 7 after Zimbabwe looked well set to double their 30-overs score of 147 for 2. Mohammad Saifuddin, playing in only his second ODI, picked three wickets to play a key role in bottling up pressure and scything through with the wickets after Brendan Taylor top scored with 75. Then with the chase, Imrul Kayes and Liton Das helped make light work of the chase by putting together 144. Both missed out on richly-deserved centuries, but by then, there was little doubt as to which side was favourite to win. Zimbabwe have a lot of soul-searching to do.

Mohammad Saifuddin is Player of the Match for his three-wicket haul

Mashrafe Mortaza: Winning the toss was crucial. We knew about the dew, but the bowlers were superb. Our openers started very well, this was a good wicket and we knew 270-280 was gettable.

Hamilton Masakadza: Didn't manage to kick on after a good start, credit to Bangladesh's death bowling. We have to grab our chances at this level, their openers batted us out of the game.

Zhuwao to Mohammad Mithun, SIX runs, game, set, match and the series! This is a friendly long-hop, he rocks back to open up the leg side and muscles this short delivery to clear deep square.

Darun: "Feeling a bit gutted for Fazle, getting ducks in his first two ODI's. Knowing the management, they'll probably have Sarkar coming in for him. Hopefully this doesn't mark the end of his international run, he's had tons of experience in domestic cricket."

END OF OVER:
44 | 5 Runs | BDESH: 244/3 (3 runs required from 36 balls, RR: 5.54, RRR: 0.50)
