Presentation:

Taylor: "Credit to Bangladesh. We can be proud of ourselves. Pleased with the boys. Sloppy in the field today. Thought we did well to restrict them to 168 on a flat deck."

Mushfiqur: "Been hard work for us. Boys showed character, the bowlers did a great job. Shakib is our fit player."

Shakib's the Man of the Match and the Series: "I scored in the first game and it gave me confidence. We have some good youngsters."

stogy: "Actually, I thought Bangladesh's performance was very much improved on their last tour of Zimbabwe. There's still a lot to improve on, but at then end of the day, I think they are continuing to improve. And one or two more players that might be considered world class - Nasir Hossain in particular."

The teams share the Tests and the T20s. Zimbabwe claimed the one-day series. That rounds off the tour. Thanks for your company and the mails. Cheers!

End of match: Mushfiqur has something to smile about after the gloom of quitting the captaincy. Will he reconsider his decision now?

Shakib in the running for the Man of the Match. Should be a unanimous decision. Today it was Zimbabwe's turn to play some wretched shots. After a point never looked like challenging Bangladesh.

Qam khan: "The overall performance from bangladesh was that not bad at all. The worst umpiring seen for a long time and was too much biased favouring Zimbabwe. Had there been impartial umpiring BD would have won all the series."

Ahmar_Jami: "Huge mistake by Zimbabwe. Didnt try new faces against weaker opposition like Bangladesh.Same old team. I was hoping to see some new spinners and some new good batsman. Will they do it against stronger oppositions like Pakistan/India/Australia, if they ever play??"

Shaikat Saha: "At the end of this series , Zimbabwe will get a lot of positives . They really prove how they improve last two year . On the other hand , a lot things to do for Bangladesh . They still poor in Tests & T20 . Can not do better in ODIs ."

Wahid: "Thanks, Bangladesh for a very comprehensive victory. Mushfiq, please don't go. It's only one series! An away one, where you have actually won a match each in all the formats; which is not that bad!"
