blockhole ball on off, hit to long-off. Zimbabwe stay alive in the series
6:35pm: After whipping up their third-highest score in T20Is, Zimbabwe asphyxiated Bangladesh's chase. Sabbir extended his good form and struck a fifty, but Chisoro, Cremer, and Raza tied the hosts down. The asking rate shot up, scoreboard pressure told, and Bangladesh's chances were extinguished with the wicket of Shakib.
Mashrafe: It is a big lesson. The bowling wasn't there. Rain helped Zimbabwe batters, but credit to them. A few newcomers are good. By playing one match, you can't gauge anything. The last match, we will have to come back strongly. It was 170-wicket but the ball started to grip after the rain.
Hamilton: Good to be back in the series. Early on, we spoke of the middle order coming together. They did it today; it was a complete performance. Think there would be more changes in the last game as well.
Waller is the Man of the Match
Waller: The guys are happy to finally get a win. We have been positing good scores, and we came out on top. We gave the chance to the bowlers to hit the yorkers. The ball came on nicely, then it stuck a bit.
That is all we have for you. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Hope you tune in for the fourth T20 too, on Friday. Ta, ta for now.
