4.00 pm: Well Shahadat isn't coming out to bat. He had split his webbing while fielding so that is the end of the match and the series. Australia have swept it 3-0, a result that was expected at the start of the series.

However, Bangladesh will be left to reflect on another terrible batting performance. They had a real chance of victory after their spinners - backed up by outstanding fielding - had restricted Australia to 198 for 5. They even had one batsman - Tamim Iqbal - who got stuck in. However, Tamim needed some support from someone and nothing was forthcoming. The top-order batsmen - Ashraful in particular - threw their wickets away and the middle-order collapsed after Shakib was dismissed. Tamim was eventually dismissed for 63, trying to score all the runs on his own with wickets falling steadily at the other end.

Clark provided the early wickets for Australia and Hopes struck three blows to Bangladesh's middle order.

The Man of the Match is Tamim Iqbal. He timed the ball best on this slow pitch and, while he was batting with Shakib, Bangladesh had a solid chance.

The Player of the Series is Michael Hussey who scored 150 runs in three innings and was dismissed only once. So he's done a lot for his average!

That brings Bangladesh's tour of Australia to an end. Thank you for all your emails during the course of the series. On behalf of all the commentators during the series, this is George Binoy signing off. Cheers.
