Bangladesh A 251 and 236 for 5 (Shahriar 86, Tushar 81) beat Zimbabwe A 269 and 217 (Sibanda 59) by five wickets

Bangladesh A recorded their third consecutive victory over their Zimbabwean counterparts at Kwekwe, to complete a 3-0 whitewash in the series.

After bowling Zimbabwe out for 217 in their second innings, Bangladesh were left needing a testing target of 236 on the final day, but cruised to victory in 51.1 overs thanks to a second-wicket stand of 162 between the captain Shahriar Nafees and Tushar Imran.

That broke the back of the run-chase, and though both fell in the space of seven runs with centuries beckoning, Sanwar Hossain's 29 guided them to the brink of victory.
