Hang on for the post-match ceremony.

Shakib: "We didn't bowl well. It was a tough day for us; hopefully we woudl come back in the next game. We didn't start well with the bat. Only 80 runs were needed in the last overs but we didn't have wickets."

Utseya: "The guys managed to come to the party today. Form is temporary, class is permanent. I think our batting can still improve. On that wicket, 350 is a good score."

Man of the Match : Chigumbura: "It was a good innings. The guys upfront did a good job to help me come in and play my game. We have to do well on Sunday to level the series."

That's it from us. Join us on Sunday. Good bye and good luck.
