Scorecard summary
Bangladesh231/6(50 overs)
Zimbabwe130/10(44.4 overs)

Well done Bangladesh! That's their first Champions Trophy win ever and they regain bottom of the table bragging rites. Zimbabwe have folded once more, but at least one of their batsman made 50. Zimbabwe were poor in this tournament and, as soon as the pace came off the ball on this slow wicket, they were always going to struggle. Bangladesh's score was, looking back, probably better than par. And thanks for joining me on my debut - and the rest of the team - from all of us here, good night.

Razzak to Kamungozi, OUT

and that's it, game over. He goes back to one that he should be forward to, it careers past a flapping bat, taking out all three.

Tafadzwa Kamungozi b Abdur Razzak 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0

Razzak to Kamungozi, no run

pushed back to mid off

We're into the final throes here, Zim have struggled and disappointed, Bangladesh are looking clinical and making the most of this slow pitch

44.2
W
Razzak to Utseya, OUT

another one falls, big swipe across the line trying to keep up with that uber-run rate and it rattles the middle poll. That ball started straight, bounced straight and hit straight, unlike the shot

there are still six inside the circle, dribbles out towards that backward square

It is never clear what you should do now, the game is dead, do you annoy everyone by batting out time or just swing? Let's hope they don't treat it like a timed game

42.6
Mohammad Rafique to Rainsford, no run

huge appeal on Rafique's last ball - screaming for more success, but he's won the game with his tight, accurate spin

42.5
W
Mohammad Rafique to Ireland, OUT

and that's the end of Ireland, a swipe across the line and the experienced Rafique hits the leg stump - not sure where he was trying to hit that, but at least he didn't block it - again...

Anthony Ireland b Mohammad Rafique 1 (8m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

Shakib to Utseya, no run

that's blocked once more, off an inside edge and the smiling Sakib is finished, only costing 18 - great bowling

pushed back once more to the bowler - batting for pride now

that's done the batsman, keeper but not the stumps, between bat and pad
