Third one-day international

Bangladesh v Zimbabwe

At Dhaka, November 26 (day/night). Zimbabwe won by seven wickets. Toss: Bangladesh.

After Javed Omar and Al Sahariar opened with 103, Bangladesh had visions of a big total. But none of their colleagues reached 20 - in fact, four middle-order batsmen contributed only 20 between them, as Streak shot out three for four in 17 balls. Only the last pair, Mohammad Sharif and Mashrafe bin Mortaza, got Bangladesh past 200. Those two also deserved credit for bowling a tight line and length, which made Zimbabwe wait until the last over for victory. They too began with a century partnership, between Grant Flower and Ebrahim, who took his tally past 200 in two days. Carlisle ensured the clean sweep with an unbeaten 55.

Man of the Match: D. D. Ebrahim.
Man of the Series: D. D. Ebrahim.
