Man of the Match: Aftab Ahmed. Man of the Series: Mashrafe bin Mortaza. One-day international debuts: F. Kasteni (Zimbabwe).
Bangladesh took the series 3-1, stumbling over the finish line after reaching 238-6 - needing
only seven to win from 38 balls - but then losing three quick wickets. The 47th over, bowled by
Anthony Ireland, was a maiden, but Abdur Razzak won the match with a four off Chibhabha. It
was the 31st one-wicket victory in one-day internationals, but Bangladesh's first. Aftab Ahmed hit
six fours and five sixes in his 78-ball innings, his highest in ODIs. Earlier, Chigumbura hit seven
sixes (and only one four) in his 57-ball innings, after Williams and Chibhabha had put on 101.
Zimbabwe's players were fined 20% of their match fee - and captain Prosper Utseya 40% - for
a slow over-rate.
