6.30pm Another clinical performance from Zimbabwe as they make a stunning turnaround to level the series 2-2. The visitors have been impressive again today led by Hamilton Masakadza's innings. Chasing 181, Bangladesh were always behind the 8-ball after the loss of early wickets. Mahmudullah fought back admirably and kept the hosts in the contest but it was a task too far as Zimbabwe defended the target comfortably.

Hamilton Masakadza is the Man of the Match and the Man of the Series.

Masakadza: "I thought we could have scored a bit more at the end. Good knock for the team. Bangladesh fought really hard but the bowlers fought back very well."

Mortaza: "Not upto the mark. we didn't bowl very well. We need to work it out. we'll come up with some good things and come back before Asia Cup. Big disappointment for Bangladesh."

Chigumbura: "It's good to come here after 2-0. Guys showed some good character. Hopefully they can carry that onto the next series. Always good to see the top order take the responsibility. These are good signs, especially last two games. The batsmen are understanding their roles. Good signs from our bowling as well."

slower ball on off, heaved over towards the midwicket boundary. A fielder runs around and keeps it in. But was his foot in contact with the boundary while the ball was in his hands? Yes, says the umpire. That will be four
