Bangladesh A 286 for 8 (Talukdar 77, Mithun 60, Garwe 3-61) beat Zimbabwe A 164 (Kasuza 43, Burl 41, Shahid 3-13) by 122 runs
Half-centuries from Rony Talukdar and Mohammad Mithun set up Bangladesh A's 122-run victory against Zimbabwe A at the Harare Sports Club, ensuring the visitors also swept the series 3-0.
Bangladesh A, after being inserted, began positively as Talukdar and Tasamul Haque shared a 90-run opening partnership. After Tasamul fell, Mithun kept the runs flowing by stroking a 64-ball 60, with three fours and a six, while Talukdar hit six fours and three sixes for his 77. The pair's 57-run stand laid a solid groundwork, which Bangladesh A's middle and lower order built on, as handy knocks from Mahmudul Hasan (31) and Muktar Ali (20*) powered the team to 286 for 8.
Zimbabwe A lost wickets right from the off during the chase, and were eventually bundled out for 164 inside 42 overs. The opener Kevin Kasuza top-scored with 43, and Ryan Burl chipped in with 41, but only one other batsman - the captain Godwill Mahmiyo with 36 - managed to make more than 12. Mohammad Shahid was the pick of Bangladesh A's bowlers, collecting 3 for 13.
