6:35pm: After whipping up their third-highest score in T20Is, Zimbabwe asphyxiated Bangladesh's chase. Sabbir extended his good form and struck a fifty, but Chisoro, Cremer, and Raza tied the hosts down. The asking rate shot up, scoreboard pressure told, and Bangladesh's chances were extinguished with the wicket of Shakib.

Mashrafe: It is a big lesson. The bowling wasn't there. Rain helped Zimbabwe batters, but credit to them. A few newcomers are good. By playing one match, you can't gauge anything. The last match, we will have to come back strongly. It was 170-wicket but the ball started to grip after the rain.

Hamilton: Good to be back in the series. Early on, we spoke of the middle order coming together. They did it today; it was a complete performance. Think there would be more changes in the last game as well.

Waller is the Man of the Match

Waller: The guys are happy to finally get a win. We have been positing good scores, and we came out on top. We gave the chance to the bowlers to hit the yorkers. The ball came on nicely, then it stuck a bit.

That is all we have for you. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Hope you tune in for the fourth T20 too, on Friday. Ta, ta for now.

JimmyA: "Good job Hammie. He used his spinners well."

Elton Phiri: "Well done Zimbabwe!!! Waller/Cremer for the man of the match award.."
