Commentator: Sreshth Shah

7.06 pm That's all from Mirpur for today. Hope you enjoyed ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the fifth game from this Tri-nation series. For now, it's good bye from Ranjith P, Varun Shetty and Sreshth Shah.

6.53 pm We're almost ready for the presentation ceremony. By the way, this is Mashrafe Mortaza's 30th win as ODI captain. He goes past the previous highest of 29 wins by Habibul Bashar.

The Man of the Match today is Tamim Iqbal, denying Shakib Al Hasan a hat-trick of awards. He says: "It wasn't the easiest wicket. On this kind of wicket, you just need to be patient and hit the loose balls. I thought my dismissal wasn't the great, should've batted through. A score of 230-240 would've been ideal. Even thought we weren't getting boundaries, we wanted to rotate the strike. Shakib played great and so did Mushfiqur. Always a proud moment to break records (most ODI runs in a venue and first Bangladeshi to 6000 runs)."

The winning captain now. Here's Mashrafe Mortaza. He says: "We thought it'd be a 280-300 surface at the toss, but it was a difficult pitch to bat on. Tamim and Shakib were brilliant and we although we did lose a bunch of wickets in the middle, our Nos. 9,10 and 11 added 45-odd runs together. Good thing that they are working with the coaches. Fizz has been practicing with the bat, and it paid off for him. When we came out to bowl, we wanted professionalism from the boys, and they all turned up. The way boys are going, it's very good. It's important to keep the intensity and momentum - hopefully we keep it for the rest of the tournament."

Here's the losing captain, Graeme Cremer. He says: "Difficult surface here, all of them look similar, but they all play different. Toss wasn't too crucial. We went about really well with the ball, were pleased with the 216 we restricted them in. But our batting was bad. It was nice to get Tamim out (on his own bowling), and we did claw it back nicely, especially since we bowled them out. I thought we gave Bangladesh some soft wickets. It's always tough to recover after a few early wickets. We've enjoyed the tri-series so far. We've brought some youngsters like Muzarabani. We hope to make the final, but all in all, we've enjoyed our trip here, and hopefully the youngsters have learnt something."

MahfuzKamal from Japan: "Arigatougozaimashita Sreshth. Another two matches ahead for Bangladesh in this series. As a Bangladeshi fan, I wish Shakib can break another Bengali Saurav Ganguli's record. I know I am optimistic :))

6.50 pm The Bangladesh bowlers made quick work of Zimbabwe's batting. They win by 91 runs, and secure another bonus-point win. Zimbabwe drop to third on the points table after this loss.

Mushfiqur says: "The pitch was tricky. And Sunzmul and Mustafizur at the end helped us get the momentum. We had thought that 250 would be a good score. We wanted someone to make a big score, but Tamim and Shakib couldn't reach their hundreds. But also, Cremer and Jarvis were excellent, so hopefully we can learn from those mistakes. The bowling attack we have, I knew we were in with a shot. The late 45 runs got by the tailenders gave them the confidence with the ball as well. Our motto of the team is to keep the momentum going. Want to play the same brand of cricket."

Mustafizur Rahman to Jarvis, OUT, pocketed by mid off! And it's all over. Full on off stump and smacked over the bowler's head. But no real power behind that. Taken by mid off with ease!

MahfuzKamal: "How many records there are for a hat-trick of man-of-the-match?" -- Quite a lot actually. check this piece from ten years, written by George Binoy and Travis Basevi, that lists a bunch of them. Sourav Ganguly has the record for four-consecutive awards
