    24.2 Mpofu does it for Zimbabwe, rips in the throw from deep square leg, they took on the fast bowler's throwing arm, and came second, the ball came in a nice height on the bounce to Taibu, who whipped off the bails before Tamim's gloves could find the crease with a despairing dive, he had dropped his bat midway intentionally, probably to pick up some pace, as he turned around for the second run after whipping one through square leg, what a waste of a wicket! 91/3
    11.5 doesn't matter, he gets him this time, umpire Dharmasena has no doubts now, flighted delivery, straightening, again he pushes outside the line for the turn, there isn't much, struck on the pad in front of leg, and Zimbabwe celebrate 50/1
    17.1 Utseya is celebrating, he has taken off for a run, he has got another one, tossed up delivery dipping full around leg stump, he goes for a push down the ground and hits it straight back to Utseya 66/2
    49.2 Rahim cannot do it for Bangladesh, what a tragic end, one scoring shot away from glory, it was pitched up and he went for it, for the big one down the ground, but did not get enough on it, it swirled towards long on who grasped it in near-darkness, the crowd erupts, Zimbabwe have won the series, Mpofu has uprooted a stump and taken off 245/10
    31.5 Utseya gets the big wicket 124/4
    42.1 needless run out, absolutely needless, another waste of a wicket, running in to trouble is Hom, he has batted brilliantly on debut, but has given it away, punched off the back foot towards extra cover who gets to the ball quickly, Hom carries on running furiously towards Rahim who hasn't moved much apart from taking a couple of steps out, and Taibu has one of the easiest run-outs of his career 185/5
    46.6 Vitori gets a wicket, bangs it in short with the angle, he goes for the pull from outside off, and finds long on, still Bangladesh's game, but they keep shooting themselves in the foot 229/6
    47.2 he has found Taylor this time, it is rest of Bangladesh against Rahim, and the former is hanging in there, Nasir tries to smoke another short ball over midwicket, top edge swirls in the air and finds Taylor as it comes down 229/7
    48.2 Jarvis has gone through Shafiul in fading light, Shafiul going for another heave, this time Jarvis was on target, Shafiul missed again, Jarvis found leg stump with a full length and roared, Rahim stood helpless 235/8
    48.6 Jarvis roars again, this game has turned again, pinpoint yorker on the middle stump, too good delivery to get at any time, much too good in fading light, perfect against No 10, wood is uprooted and the crowd gets behind Jarvis 243/9
