Presentation:

Mushfiqur: "We lost two set batsmen in the same over, then the two run outs. 169 was gettable and we should have restricted them to 160."

Taylor: "Panyangara came back really strong. You never think you have enough, it was a flat wicket. In this format the team that holds its nerve gets over the line. Panyangara is a laidback guy."

Man of the Match is Masakadza: "Very relieved. We stuck to our guns well. It was good for us that we got both wickets (Shakib and Shamsur) in the same over. Really happy I managed to convert my start today."

Bangladesh have only a day to recover from what hit them today. That over will haunt them. The teams are back again tomorrow for the second and final T20 to conclude the tour. Thanks for your company and the mails. We'll see you again soon. Cheers!

End of match: What a fabulous comeback by Zimbabwe. They looked out of it when Shakib and Shamsur were running away with it. One over changed it all. Both set batsmen departed and from that point, Bangladesh well and truly botched it. The running was all over the place, the number of dot balls piled on the pressure and in the end, even Mushfiqur couldn't see his side through.

Stay with us for the presentation.

SarfBD: "We choked. That's all".

Nick: "phew its finally over and what a cliffhanger for Zim to win, great comeback from Panyangara"

Mostak Ahmed: "So finally Bangladesh lost the game by conceding 6 on the last delivery of 20th over, this is the case when ever you conceding six on last delivery!!"
