Commentary

Time for the presentation:

Brendan Taylor: Credit to Bangladesh, we were mentally weak with the bat, we can't win Tests like that. Our bowlers showed a lot of character. You have to have the mindset that you can win from any situation. We started well and had them three down but dropped two chances. Mushy held his end and marshalled his troops very well. Long knocks are our major worry, 20s and 30s won't help. They played better cricket and we'll come back stronger in the second Test. There was pace and bounce so it was fun. The groundsmen made a good wicket.

Mushfiqur Rahim: We are not where we want to be but the boys played very well and a win is a win. There's a lot of areas to improve on. Our batting and bowling both. Taijul has been great for the last couple of matches, Shakib also bowled really well and Jubair too. It's a total team and all-round effort. To win Tests you have to play big innings to make it count.

Taijul is the Man of the Match: Thanks to everyone who supported me - captain, support staff. I'll try to get better in the future. I am trying to adjust slowly since my debut in West Indies. I only wanted to support Mushy bhai in the Test and didn't want to do anything wrong.

4.12pm That's all we have from the thrilling Test between the bottom two teams in this format. The next Test will start on November 3, do join us then. Goodbye!

Chris: "In the end, I don't think Zimbabwe batted well enough to earn the victory, but it does set up the rest of the series well."

Mazhar Chowdhur: "That tiny 14 runs lead meant too much in deciding the match result!!!"

Sean: "Man! I can't even imagine the 5th day on this pitch."

3.50pm Bangladesh ended the first two days marginally on top and have ended the third day by winning it. 17 wickets fell today after Zimbabwe resumed their innings and Taijul Islam wrecked them with 8 for 39. Bangladesh were chasing 101 but started with 0 for 3, before their middle order rescued them. After several twists and turns, Mushfiqur took them home with three wickets in hand. This is Bangladesh's first win this year, apart from the T20 wins against Nepal and Afghanistan

Chigumbura to Taijul Islam, FOUR, it's over, Bangladesh have won! Taijul has aptly struck the wining runs - it was a short ball angled in, he went back a bit and pulled it to the backward square leg are for four. He's running in jubilation and takes a bow of the pitch. What a match it has been for him
