198 for 2 (32.0 overs)
Top Stuff from Bangladesh, they were down and out after the first two games, but came back strong with the re-inclusion of the test players Raffique and Murtaza especally.
Is that the first time that the team chasing has one a game in the series aswell and to do it in 32 overs aswell.
Who got the runs, have not been on cricinfo today?

This series proved that we could have a "B league" or Second Tier of First class nations, it would make for some very good cricket and improve many nations so that ultimately in 10 -20 we have more test playing nations.

Great stuff rom Bangladesh.. Wah jee wah..very good.
Glad Bangla won the series but with difficulty after being 2-0 down. The reason being there captain (and presumambly whole team) showed lack of rspect to the Zimbers because he said we gonna beat them 5-0. SImilar bragging and thrash talk to people like Shoaib Akhtar. Hopefully Banglas will learn a lesson and let the cricket do the talking or at least not talk big and not show opposition any respect.

it was an awesome comeback...once Masrafee and rafique came back from injuries Bangladesh was just too good fot Zimbabwe who played with a lot of heart. The final ODI was just a revelation as far as Bangladesh were concerned. The way Aftab Ahmed and Md. Rafique set about demolishing the Zimbo attack was just breath-taking. Aftab Ahmed looks like a great prospect. He hit Elton Chigumbura for 24 in one over...but through out did not go for a single slog. It was raining 4s and 6s...I have never seen Bangladesh play like this. Just shows what self-confidence can do to a team. The next assignment is England in May. God knows that will be as tough as it gets...early summer conditions in England with the swing, and bounce will test the new found confidence of the Tigers to the core. But if the audacity and devil-may-care approach that I have seen from the likes Aftab and Asharaful is anything to go hopefully this tour may not be completely one-sided.
