After the Tamim hurricane, it was the steady hand of Junaid that saw Bangladesh to the target easily. Tamim has been the difference between the sides today and Bangladesh look in good shape heading into the World Cup. Zimbabwe on the other hand will look towards their top order failing in their duties in this series and would like to fine tune their preparations

Wait on us for the quotes from presentation

Elton Chigumbara says" Very disappointed to lose the game. Bangladesh batted well right through the series and we need to improve our batting. We need to be an altogether different side, in batting when we come for the World Cup"

Shakib Al Hasan " We came back really hard at them. Tamim and Junaid scored runs at the top. Wicket played really well as there was some spin early on. Positive side from the bowling perspective is that fast bowlers are doing well. Crowds kept Tamim going on and hopefully we put up a good show at the World Cup"

Man of the match is Tamim Iqbal who says " I was injured for a few months and needed a few matches to get back. Hundred would have been much better. It doesn't matter if I score a zero or hundred, they(crowd) will love me"

Man of the series is Abdur Razzak
