Akmal and Butt set up 23-run victory

A total of 309, disappointing given that Pakistan had been 151 for 0 in the 23rd over, ultimately proved sufficient as they wrapped up the series with a 23-run win

Pakistan win by 23 runs and wraps the series, leads by 3-0. A hard-fought win for Pakistan, but a special mention for Bangladesh for taking it so close when most people had counted them out. But for a couple of untimely run-outs and some rash shots, they controlled this match from the 30th over of the Pakistan innings onwards, first restricting their total and then chasing hard. But at long last, a contest and both teams will be pleased with that. Bangladesh total is the highest against recognized opposition. Salman Butt for the second time picks up the Man-of-the-Match award, a wonderful knock of 132 runs of 127 balls.

Thanks for being with us, do join us for the fourth ODI on April 16. Until then this is Binoy George and along with Raymond signing off. It is bye from all of us here at Cricinfo.
