Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe won by 18 runs

MOM: Hamilton Masakadza
Bangladesh

162/10 (19) RR:8.53

Welcome back for Bangladesh's reply. They have a mountain to scale. Let's see whether the hosts come good or crumble under the pressure of target...

At one stage, Zimbabwe looked good to finish with at least 200, but the hosts pegged them back in the last 5 overs. Only 35 runs came from it and the tourists failed to cash in. Masakadza was the star performer, making a career best unbeaten 93, he was well supported by Mutumbani (32) and Malcolm Waller (36). Zimbabwe defended 187 in the third T20I, can they defend 180? We will be back in a while..

Both the captains share the trophy. Zimbabwe have worked hard after losing the first two T20Is to get a hand on that one. That is it from us today. But the cricket action continues, hop tabs to see what is happening in the last Test match between South Africa and England. Bye, take care!

Hamilton Masakadza: "I thought we could have scored a bit more in the end. We could have gone for 190. Credit to the bowlers for sticking to the plan. It is coming well at the moment. Hopefully, we continue the form from here."

Chigumbura: "It is good to coming from 2-0 down to level the series. Our top batters showed some good form. It is always good to see the senior guys taking the responsibility. These are good signs. Especially, the last two games we played, the guys have started to understand each other well. Hopefully, we can carry from here."

Mortaza: "Obviously, it was not upto the mark. We did not bowl very well and lost too many wickets early. We need to work it out. We have three-four weeks before the Asia Cup and hopefully we will recover. We could not execute the plans. It was a bit disapponiting for us. Thanks to the supporters for coming and supporting us."

What a comeback this has been for Zimbabwe. After losing the first two T20Is, the morale in the camp would have been low but they regrouped to win the next two games to level the series. Bangladesh had a chance to seal the series in the last game but they took the visitors too lightly and made five changes to the team. It did not help and Zimbabwe thumped them with ease. Coming into today's game, Chigumbura was back in the team as the captain. He might have failed to add a few quick runs in the slog overs but led his team brilliantly to catch the hosts 18 runs short of the target. Credit also goes to Hamilton Masakadza who cracked 93 off 58 to help Zimbabwe post a mountain on the board. After Bangladesh had lost their first four wickets for 17 runs, it was always going to be tough for them. And in the end despite some fighting effort from Mahmudullah and captain Mortaza, Bangladesh failed to clear the finish line.
