Scorer: Sanjay Murari | Commentator: Abhishek Purohit

Taylor and Rahim shake hands and jointly hold the series trophy. That does it for this Test series. Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers

Mushfiqur Rahim is the Man of the Match and Robiul Islam is the Man of the Series

Mushfiqur speaks on behalf of Robiul. Says he can bowl another 100 overs if needed, and dedicates the performance to the victims of the Savar tragedy back home in Bangladesh.

Mushfiqur Rahim: "Test win is a big achievement for us. Pressure on us after losing the first Test. We did not apply during the first Test, senior guys played well in this game, it showed the character of our team, hopefully we will carry the momentum in the ODIs. Robiul is a hard-working guy, all the hard work paid off, really happy for him. When you are winning, you are always enjoying [the tour]. It has been a good Test for me. I trued my best. Credit goes to Shakib and Nasir, they supported me throughout."

Brendan Taylor: "You have to give Bangladesh credit for some solid performances. Their middle order was very solid. Robiul bowling 100 overs in two games is phenomenal. The wicket played better than we though it would, we leaked too many boundaries, they showed patience and waited for scoring options. They deserved the win, we are pleased with some of our individual performances, and can be proud of a 1-1 result. Hamilton is a guy we look to bat around. I am sure he is going to come good in the one-dayers."

Handshakes all around. Mushfiq has a stump in his hand. Bangladesh's fourth Test win, third overseas, second against Zimbabwe, first in Zimbabwe

Ten wickets for the Bangladesh fast bowlers, so crucial in winning Tests outside the subcontinent. Crucial runs in both innings from Shakib, Mushfiqur and the young and mature Nasir Hossain. Tamim got a bad decision in the second innings, but set the tone with a brisk 49 on the first morning

Lead bowler Jarvis' poor show hurt Zimbabwe, and their batting could not hold up with Taylor not firing. Fantastic effort from Hamilton Masakadza, though, batted over six hours with top concentration

Winston: "I am so proud of that stoic effort by Hamilton Masakadza. Not once did he give up or stop believing. In the end it was too much. But I will never forget the way he approached this innings. Well done Bangladesh. You are worthy winners."
