Bangladesh win by 6 wickets.

The game lasted just 36.4 overs! 45 was always going to be tough to defend, Bangladesh did struggle a bit with the Zimbabwean spinners too getting good purchase from the track but in the end it was a comfortable win.

Another 50 runs could have made it into an even contest but that was not to be. Bangladesh now have an unassailable 3-1 lead with just one more game to go in the series.

Masakadza - "Misread the wicket today, it was slower than we thought". "We did give wickets away, which is something we have been doing throughout the series". "It is really disappointing that we are 3-1 down after going one up in the series". "It was good to come out and take four wickets but..."

Shakib Al Hasan - "We would have loved to win by 10 wickets but it was spinning a lot". When we started playing, we thought it was a flat track but when our spinners came in it was doing a bit and they landed the ball in the right areas". "We have been dropping some catches, we need to work a bit on our fielding."

Nazmul Hossain has been awarded the man-of-the-match for his splendid bowling effort (2 for 10 in 6 overs) and the excellent catch he took at point. That's all we have for you today, do join us on Thursday for the 5th and final game of the series. Good bye and good luck.
