Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Make sure you catch up with Karthik's report. We will be back on Friday for the one-off T20. Until then, this is Deivarayan Muthu saying buh-bye.
Tamim Iqbal, Man of the Series: I am enjoying my batting and that is the main thing. Thanks to the team, special thanks to Mushfiqur and Mashrafe. The best part of the series is that we were dominant.
Soumya Sarkar is the Man of the Match
Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh captain: The way the boys are playing, it is pleasing. This is a good team. Soumya [Sarkar] was brilliant today. We will now focus on the T20 and then Tests.
Azhar Ali, Pakistan captain: First of all I would like to congratulate Bangladesh. They played good cricket. We played well in patches but we could not put it together. As everybody knows, the senior players have left. The youngsters have to stand up and we have to pull our heads together. We have some experienced guys for T20s and Tests. We will put in a better performance.
Prashanth: "Amazing turn around.. Ban took 16years to for 2nd win against Pak and now within a week have won 3 against Pak. Looks like interesting times for Bangladesh cricket. Go on!!"
9:50pm: Big celebrations in the Bangladesh camp. After wrapping up the series in the second ODI, Mash said that the job is yet to be finished. They have done it now, making it 3-0.
Tamim and Sarkar set up the chase, courtesy a brisk 145-run partnership for the first wicket. Sarkar was the chief aggressor this time, crunching 127 off 110 balls, his maiden century. He stayed there till the end as Bangladesh surged to a famous series win. Pakistan were sloppy with the ball and sloppier on the field. A difficult journey beckons for the visitors.
ASM Jahangir: "The dream run in Bangladesh cricket continues. What a performance once again!! A treat to watch what the young Soumya Sarker displayed with his bat. Hats off to Soumya, Tamim and Mushfique and congrats to the team for the confidence with which they played. Keep up the tempo and the ranking will go up in no time."
Kiran: "Not just sweeping the series 3-0. They were quite convincing in all the three matches."
Mushfiqu Rahim: It is great moment for Bangladesh cricket. All the credit goes to the boys. They have improved a lot and the boys have put their hands up. I want to keep going. The boys are confident and ready for the T20s and Tests.
