that's it. Mahmudullah gets to his fifty, Bangladesh have won the series 5-0. Length ball slogged away to the midwicket boundary to spark raucous celebrations in Mirpur
Bangladesh won by 5 wickets (with 153 balls remaining)
That's all we have for you, thank you for your company and your comments. Good bye.
"Definitely, It's all been with us. We're very happy," Mashrafe Mortaza says. "First of all, Shakib, Tamim and Anamul, Mushfiq was the crisis man, Taijul was brilliant today and Arafat Sunny as well. They [backroom staff] kept working hard with us, giving us a lot of support and they have done a really good job."
Taijul Islam is the Man of the Match, for his hat-trick and finishing with 4-11 and collects a trophy from the Bangladesh prime minister.
Mushfiqur Rahim is the Man of the Series and he finally collects the trophy for winning the Tests 3-0. "Hard work for us this year, boys showed character and the batsmen did well. Shakib, Mominul and Mahmudullah batted really well and our bowlers did really well as well. Taijul and the spinners gave us the 20 wickets we needed. Couple of areas where we have really improved. and in the ODIs, Mash did a great job. Just happy to contribute to the team [even if I am not captain]"
"I dont think it was a good total, below par. Bowlers fought hard, it was a bit disappointing if you looked at the whole game," Elton Chigumbura says, "We've performend in patches and so we need to look at that, especially with the World Cup coming up. One or two guys are putting their hands up, but we need to correct our mistakes before going to the World Cup. Bowlers bowled well throughout the series and the Tests, they just need to carry on. Main thing is the batting and we need to improve quickly"
Wafi Aziz Satta: "Given Mahmudullah's heroics in this series, coming in every time and digging his team out of trouble, I reckon he should deservedly be the Man of the Series. What a great Birthday gift this has been for me today. Woohoo!"
5.30 pm It wasn't as clear cut as the scorecard might make it seem, but Mahmudullah was the difference again. He just about managed to keep the good balls out, punished the bad ones and secured a famous win. Zimbabwe had kept themselves in the hunt despite posting only 128 with Tendai Chatara and Tinashe Panyangara's probing spells. But the day will be remembered for Taijul Islam, who became the first bowler in ODI history to claim a hat-trick on debut
"We needed it, we deserved it with the consistent cricket we have played," says Mahmudullah, "It's been a boost before the World Cup. We need to work really hard, conditions will be different there"
Riju: "seems like Shakib is going to bag another Man of the Series award. But for me it should go to Mash for his (top order) wickets, one match winning cameo and unorthodox captaincy :)"
slower ball outside off, Mahmudullah has squeezed it away to the cover boundary. Lovely touch
banged in short and that's been called wide for height as the batsman ducks under it
good length ball on middle and leg, kept out
Solomon Mire into the attack, with Bangladesh needing eight more
stays deep in his crease to block a flatter ball on off stump
rocks back and pulls strongly through midwicket
dropped at short leg! He had to dive forwards and gets his fingertips to the ball. Can't quite hold on from there as Kamungozi gets a little more bounce. Mahmudllah's front foot prod had only resulted in an inside edge. Maruma might have been a bit deep there
Hassan Arif: "I was hoping Bangladesh would win by 10 wickets. But Bangladesh is winning like bangladesh"
fuller delivery on off stump, defended
runs down the track and mis-hits to mid-on
oh, that was close! Short midwicket leaped to his left and stuck out a hand, but the slog from Mahmudullah has just enough power behind it to go past him and hit the midwicket boundary. Panyangara was the man
finishes his spell with a good short ball that has Sabbir hopping around. The batsman does quite well though, dropping his wrists and using soft hands to ensure short leg was out of the picture
punched down the ground to the long-off boundary. Strong bottom hand powers the shortish ball and it skims away
moves around the wicket
dug in short and Mahmudullah is happy to let it sail through
back of a length on off stump, defended
goes short and makes him drag it from outside off if he wants to pull. That is exactly what Sabbir does and gets a couple of runs to midiwcket. Barely in control of that though as it skewed up in the air
shortish and outside off, steered in front of point to pick up a single
Mohsin: "Just started watching the match...For a moment i thought its a test match in colored clothing..5 slips for Chatara!!" He's finished his 10 overs though. It's Tinashe Panyangara now
stands up tall behind a shortish delivery on middle and punches into the covers
goes back to block a shortish delivery outside off
some aggression from Mahmudullah as he swipes at a fuller ball on leg stump and sends it away over wide mid-on. Not perfectly hit, but enough
pushed through on the pads, Sabbir pushes to long-on to raise the hundred
Mazhar: "What kind of pitch is this? one team can not play spin and the other can not play pace. very confusing :)" Nothing wrong with the pitch, that's the respective teams' weaknesses coming out
