Bangladesh End ODI Series With Comprehensive Win
Bangladesh 253-6 (Shakib Al Hasan 79) beat
Zimbabwe 160 (Waller 51) by 93 runs
Fifth One-Day International, Bulawayo
Bangladesh rounded off the One-Day International series in Zimbabwe with a comprehensive 93-run win in the fifth and final match in Bulawayo.
They reached a score of 253 for six before dismissing Zimbabwe for 160 to claim a second straight win although Zimbabwe took the series 3-2.
Captain Shakib Al Hasan led the way for Bangladesh by making 79 while Mahmudullah hit 60 and Tamim Iqbal 45 before Ray Price returned three for 51.
Mahmudullah then completed a fine all-round game by taking three for 13 as only four Zimbabweans reached double figures in reply.
Malcolm Waller made 51, Vusi Sibanda 34, Hamilton Masakadza 28 and Forster Mutiza 27 as their batting failed to fire collectively on a slow pitch that suited Bangladesh more than the pitches for the first three games of the series in Harare.
