The presentation is left, don't go anywhere…

Man of the Match Chibhabha: I was under a bit of pressure leading up to this game and happy to spend some time in the middle. It was important for me to stay there and not lose wickets, and build some momentum. It's always very important to work through the beginning and build a solid start, I was happy with my performance. This wicket was pretty flat so it was important to hit the deck hard.

Asghar Stanikzai: Bowlers did a good job but we batted poorly again and the total was achievable because wicket was good for batting. Our batsmen played poor shots and didn't take responsibility. Our spinners bowled very well especially towards the end.

Elton Chigumbura: Guys worked hard to come back from 0-2 and credit goes to openers today to not lose a wicket in 15 overs. And credit to Chamu as well for bowling well. The way we finished our innings was not that good and we were looking to score around 260. We've started the new year on a positive note and hope to win the series now.

That's it from us then, the series is 2-2 and join us on January 6 (Wednesday) now for the decider. If you missed any of the action, here's Shashank Kishore's match report here. Until the next match, goodbye and good luck from Vishal Dikshit.

10.28pm So the series is alive even though Zimbabwe were 2-0 down and 49 for 7 in the third ODI, but they have come back and how! Today also they won the toss and put up a score that could be thought of defending even though they crumbled towards the end of their innings. But their top order got some runs. And once Madziva got the early wickets again, Jongwe kept the pressure up and Chibhabha followed his fifty with his maiden four-for to finish things off

that's the last one, caught at mid-off! Hamza chipped the length ball in the air and straight to Waller for a simple catch. Zimbabwe win by 65 runs

extra bounce surprises Hamza as he looked to defend off the back foot and took it on the glove eventually
