length outside off, dabs it towards short third man and sets off. It went straight to the fielder but he fumbles and that's the victory for Bangladesh
Nazmul Hassan presents the trophy to Mahmudullah and all the players come together for the photographs. So, that's all from our side for tonight. See you soon.
Mahmudullah: I think the we way played, the way we have been consistent, that has been very pleasing. Especially the way Liton showed consistency and hunger, really happy for him too. We gave chances to new guys, Hasan bowled with good pace and showed his skills. Overall it was a good all-round bowling performance. The hunger was there. Last couple of series we were not up to the mark. We are trying to build up the confidence for the World Cup.
Liton Das: Nothing possible without God, have been practising hard and the process has helped. Thanks to the coaching staff, they have been focusing on my batting, especially Neil and Domingo. In the previous innings, I coordinated well with Tamim and he too helped me out.
Liton Das is the Man of the Match as well as the Man of the Series.
Sean Williams: We are down at the moment but we have to stay positive. Nice long flight to home to reflect on the things. Looking forward to the Ireland series and trying to give them a good run. I am really happy for him [Taylor]. He has come out from a really tough time. There are times when senior players have to lead by example and tonight was a perfect example.
Time for the presentation ceremony.
Coolwater: "Zim looked so defeated in the end. To keep up the intensity till the end, and being in the game mentally, they were against Sri Lanka, is a must for them. And they should allow Madhevere to perform. He has got the potential to rise up to the occasion. "
SabbirChowdhury: "Yet another easy win for Bangladesh! The series has been a good one for Bangladesh. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, might want to forget the series, or they would probably learn something to build up a young team keeping in mind the next World Cup to be held in 2023!"
9.00pm A nine-wicket win for Bangladesh as they win the series 2-0. First their bowler did well to restrict Zimbabwe to 119 despite an unbeaten 59 from Brendan Taylor. Then, Liton Das continued his good form to score 60 not out off 45 and along with Soumya Sarkar took Bangladesh home in just 15.5 overs. That makes it 6-0 for Bangladesh across formats.
