Scorer: Vairavan | Commentator: @himanshu_a30

Phew! Zimbabwe edge past Bangladesh in the sixth attempt after running close on five occasions earlier. The series is all square at 1-1, and don't forget to join us for the decider on Sunday. Until then, you can hop on the action between Sri Lanka and India, as we bid goodbye to you today!

Andy: "So happy for Zimbabwe! Between broken shoes, dodgy administrators"

SunnyK: "What a Lucky Charm for Zimbabwe! Wellington Masakadza is literally Everywhere!"

Here's Raza: "Today we managed to tick a lot more boxes than we managed yesterday. [166 was enough?] I would have taken that [score], and with a young squad, it gives us confidence. We back ourselves to defend... Blessing listened to the team plan... and hopefully we all listen to the team plan for the final game!"

Madhevere is the Player of the Match for his knock of 73: "All credit to the boys. Everyone in the change room gave me positive ideas... The wicket was on the slower side, but credit to the Bangladesh bowlers - they bowled well. I'm starting to fancy opening in T20s, and build on that as well... "

Mahmudullah will speak first: "We didn't have a good partnership... We missed a few chances in the field, that's why they put big partnerships and got to a big total. We need to look into those areas and come back stronger. [Shoriful a positive?] Shoriful has been bowling really well. The bowlers have been trying really hard."

Time for the presentations

Hetelani Mukwak: "Today it was a real team work from the Zimbabwean side, all departments played very well. Thumbs up team Zimbabwe "

Camper: "@Hetelani Mukwak Tendai Chatara (at least for today) has looked all of the bowling partner that Muzarabani has been deserving for some time now. He bowled much better than Ngarava and probably if Ngarava had played this game would have been much closer."

4.05pm So here comes the hosts' first win of the tour. A real team effort from Zimbabwe, led by Madhevere, Burl and Masakadza, as they win by 23 runs. They posted 166 and avoided a batting collapse for a change, and their bowlers answered the call with a match-winning display. Zimbabwe's fielding was also spot-on - much in contrast to that of Bangladesh today - and an all-round effort means the series is levelled at 1-1.

Jongwe to Taskin Ahmed, OUT, taken at long-on, and that's over. Good length ball bowled wide of off, as he swings his bat to play across the line. The ball finds Masakadza again, and he can't stop himself from celebrating with a smile and a shake of the shoulder. Zimbabwe win, finally

Jongwe to Taskin Ahmed, no run, short of a length again, and goes wide of off. Taskin swings his bat, but can't connect to that while playing away from his body
19.3
2
Jongwe to Taskin Ahmed, 2 runs, yorker length on middle and off, and driven down the ground. A run-out chance at the keeper's end. Taskin wasn't dragging his bat, and that's touch-and-go as the bails are clipped just at the moment Taskin bangs his bat inside the crease

Shoriful is the new man, but Taskin will be on strike

W
Jongwe to Mohammad Saifuddin, OUT, caught at extra cover while going for a heave. This was on a good length and wide of off again, as he made room to try and swing the bat, but could only sky that to the fielder

Jongwe to Mohammad Saifuddin, FOUR, top-edges a pull past short third man. Short of a length and wide of off, the batter swings his bat and gets it through to the right of the fielder

Jongwe to Mohammad Saifuddin, 1 wide, the ball rolls over to the keeper, as this is bowled very full and wide of off. Called a wide, but Raza not happy as it was a very tight call
