7.45pm And that's it from all of us. Another one-sided game, another Bangladesh win. Hopefully, the fourth ODI will be more of a contest. Do join us for that. Until then, ta ta!

7.40pm Presentation time. Elton Chigumbura: "I still think it's a good wicket to bat, and chasing was a good decision, but unfortunately we keep doing the same thing. We thought the guys who would come in would bring a different performance but still the same performance. Disappointing to lose three games in a row. I thought the guys were up for it, but we still made the same mistakes. Two most important games to go for us. We've got to make sure we finish well."

Mashrafe Mortaza: "I'm very happy, all the boys are very happy today. Once again Tamim and Bijoy were fabulous, and later on, even though they were small innings, Shakib, Mushfiq, Riyad and Sabbir played brilliantly. 2014 we have kept losing but now the momentum is coming, hopefully we'll keep it up."

Anamul Haque is the man of the match: "Little bit disappointed, two matches in a row I missed the centuries, but winning the match was the positive. Tamim Iqbal is one of the best openers in the world, and he helps me all the time. In the first 15 overs it was not easy to bat, so we tried to keep wickets. Mushy and Shakib also played very good."

Shreya Tanzin: "2 interesting things I noticed in this series: 1: A Sunny is becoming BD's tail-ender specialist, taking the last 2-3 wickets almost regularly 2: Bangladesh has around 8 full time bowlers, 4 of them are batting all-rounders within the team (including Shakib) , and 2 of them are pretty much masqueraded batsmen: Mominul & Sabbir. Good stuff! Although, it does mean, Nasir Hossain, one of my favs, will need to work hard for a place in this team."

ZCFOutkast: "One thing is certain, you can't blame the coach for such schoolboy batting mistakes because Simmons, Butcher, Streak, Grant, and Waller should've long eradicated them. Can only blame the batsmen."

7.32pm Zimbabwe are bowled out with 10.1 overs still left to play. Tells you all about their innings, and tells you how this tour has gone for them. It's Bangladesh's biggest win over Zimbabwe in terms of runs. For the second straight game, Sunny finishes with four wickets, including the last three.

Arafat Sunny to Kamungozi, OUT, and that is that. It's a little fuller, the arm ball again, sliding towards off stump. He clears his front leg and goes for the big slog sweep and plays all around the ball, which crashes into his stumps

Arafat Sunny to Chigumbura, no run, now he makes room to cut, and makes a crisp connection but can't beat point
