That's all from us today, and from this tour. Zimbabwe will be pretty chuffed to win even if it was the last match of the tour and that seals our coverage for now. Thanks for tuning in, and until some other match starts in a few hours, it's goodbye and good luck!

Mashrafe Mortaza: That was not a bat wicket to bat on, but we didn't execute our plans. The bowlers bowled well but it wasn't good enough. We don't pay much T20s and hopefully we'll come up with good form in BPL before Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. Tamim and Imrul started well but we got out while playing too many shots, instead of building partnerships. It wasn't a good total to defend but bowlers bowled really well. Al-Ami did really well and Mustafizur once again, hopefully we'll keep it up.

Neville Madziva Man of the Match for his 19-ball 28 and 2 for 25: Right now I'm totally speechless I am so happy. I just told myself I was going to watch the ball and hit it. I knew I could hit it and we still had a chance (in the last over). Malcolm told me "Keep watching the ball" and that's what I did. I couldn't read the slower ball from Mustafizur but after that I just said "I'm going to win the match for my country".

Malcolm Waller Man of the Series: Great feeling to go back 1-1, taking a win in the series. I just went out there and enjoyed myself. We needed to build partnerships and there was a good one with Jongwe and then Madziva finished it off in the end. We know that we can do it and we need to be more positive every game and results will come.

Elton Chigumbura: They showed good courage and determination to try and win the game. Credit goes to them who did it today and they did well. If you lose early wickets it's always a worry but the way Malcolm played with Jongwe it gave us a solid base and then Madziva finished it. Cricket is played till the last ball and today the guys showed us.

8.32pm Oh, what an end for Madziva and Zimbabwe, they finally win on the tour and how! It was all down to Malcolm Waller again, just like the first T20, after te top order stutters and he took them till the end. But that penultimate over from Mustafizur to Madziva had four dot balls and but he suddenly became a different batsmen while facing Nasir Hossain in the last over and hit him for 6, 2, 4 and 6!

Apratim Mukherj: "Congratulations ZIMBABWE what a game"

Ishan: "I am a Bangladeshi supporter, however I am really happy to see how Madziva won it. I really am!"

Nasir Hossain to Madziva, SIX runs, tonked! High and handsome, Madziva has absolutely hammered that straight down the ground, it's gone very very high and lands well over the boundary for a clean and big six. Madziva throws his bat (literally) away in celebration and gets hugs from his team-mates!

Six from two now, take a deep breath. Nasir comes round the wicket

Nasir Hossain to Madziva, SIX runs, oh my, that's a drive over the covers for six! It was flattish outside off, Madziva came down and slammed that inside out to send it all the way!

Nasir Hossain to Waller, OUT, oh, Waller holes out! It was flat outside off, he went for a big swipe to smash it to leg but didn't get the distance and was taken easily at long on. There goes Waller, and Zimbabwe's hopes

MN Waller c Sabbir Rahman b Nasir Hossain 40 (55m 27b 2x4 3x6) SR: 148.14

Mustafizur Rahman to Madziva, 1 no ball, he gets bat this time, but it's an edge and Mushfiqur has taken it! Full again outside off, Madziva wanted to slog that to the leg side but got an edge. Oh, they are checking for the no ball and it's very close! The third umpire needs more replays and looks like when the foot lands completely, there's nothing behind the crease. But was there anything behind when the heel lands? The third umpire says it's a no ball, is that a twist? Madziva stays and gets a free hit too!
