A well deserved win for Bangladesh who were in the long run the better team, a slight wobble in the first ODI was followed up by two convincing wins to take the series 2-1

Shakib Al Hasan has shown throughout this series why he does have such a high ICC rating. Mashrafe Mortaza is also a class bowler and those two can only inspire the rest of a young team, hurt by the ICL exodus, to improve in future games.

Zimbabwe however has a lot of hard work to do, average bowling led by Ray Price and a very brittle batting line-up

Thank you for spending your time with CricInfo and we hope to entertain you again in the near future.
