Commentary

That winds up the show from Bulawayo today. Do check out Sid Talya's eloquence in the match report on your way out. Cheers and goodbye, this is Nitin Sundar who is now heading Hom.

Time for the presentations.

Man of the Match is Rubel Hossain. "My main plan was line and length, and to use the bouncer well. With the older ball, I focused on line and length, and reverse swing. Happy to get another four-for, and more so since the team won."

Shakib: "Much better today. Good effort on the field .. the wicket helped the spinners and we put them under some pressure, and the batsmen played some shots. We were looking for 2-3 quick wickets, the spinners set it up and then Rubel came on and did extremely well. We tried to be positive with the bat, and it worked today. Hope for more of the same on Sunday."

Taylor: "Didn't get enough runs.. Lost too many wickets in the end. We may be drifted into this game without the usual intent, and Bangladesh came back hard as we expected them to. 3-2 doesn't sound as good as 4-1, so we need to have a good look at ourselves in the mirror and come back. A 100 and a loss always hurts. 260-270 would have been a par score here."

Taylor's ton set Zimbabwe up beautifully but they imploded spectacularly in the batting Powerplay. The chase was never an issue, Tamim took off, Shakib stabilised and Hom took them home. Alliterative awesomeness all the way.
