Match Referee

Thanks for being with us, do join us again on Dec 10th for the 4th ODI, until then this is Binoy George and along with Raghav saying cheers for now.

Razzak (Man-of-the-Match) : Two matches in a row now for Razzak. "I am really happy today, the bowling was fantastic, was very happy with the wicket. About the catch he dropped, I could not see the ball."

Shakib: "Throughout the day, the wicket was helpful for the seamers and spinners. We have been playing good cricket, if the top-order did not click, the middle-order played and other way round too, someone is contributing. Mashrafe has bowled well today and very happy with Razzak's efforts."

Utseya: "It was a juicy wicket, it is unfortunate that we did not take our chances. we missed a stumping chance, we did not try our best in the middle innings. it was a learning curve against the left arm spinners."

The players shake hands, Bangladesh win by 65 runs and leads the series 2-1. Zimbabwe were never in the game after they were 6 down for 47, Razzak doing the damage. The only respectful knock came from Utseya.

Ravi: "This has become ususal with Zim. They start the series with a good win and let things off the hooke. Winning a match in foreign soil is good. Perhaps, ZIM should focus on winning more than one match."
