Commentary -
That's all we have from the presentation area. Join us tomorrow for the final T20I at 13:30 local time here at Bulawayo. Till then, goodbye and cheers....
Hamilton Masakadza: "Good game and they were playing really well with Shakib and Shamshur putting on a good partnership. But we bowled well and clinched the game. I am very happy with my form and doing well. I hope to continue the same form ahead."
Hamilton Masakadza is the Man of the match
Taylor: "Full credit to the guys today. We could not post a huge total but we got back in the game with some good bowling. Panyangara went for a few in the initial overs but he came back well and did a great job for us."
Rahim: "We lost two batsmen in the same over and we started tumbling from there. Shakib and Shamshur were doing well earlier but their wickets changed it all. Our bowlers also did not bowl well but 168 was a gettable target. We will hope to do well tomorrow."
Panyangara: "I was concentrating on bowling the workers outside off. It was a plan to Razzak after looking at his scoring areas in the ODIs. I was confident of the outcome. Glad that it came off."
Brilliant win for Zimbabwe! Who would have thought they will win this one? At one stage, Bangladesh were cruising with Shakib and Shamshur on a rampage. But one over from Utseya changed it all and it all went downhill from there. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals, Mushfiqur had almost carried them home but he was caught off the first ball of the final over and it was all over for the visitors.
19.6 Panyangara to Razzak, out Lbw!! Fantastic over from Panyangara! He has won it for the hosts! He banged this one full on the stumps, Razzak comes on the frontfoot and swings, misses it and gets rapped on the pads. It would have gone to hit the middle stump. Razzak lbw b Panyangara 2(4)
Panyangara to Razzak, THATS OUT!! Lbw!!
19.5 Panyangara to Razzak, no run, fuller length delivery outside off, Razzak looks to drive on frontfoot, misses it. That should seal the game for Zimbabwe. They're already celebrating
19.4 Panyangara to Razzak, 2 runs, good length delivery on the off, Razzak gets forward and punches it to deep mid wicket for a quick couple
19.3 Panyangara to Razzak, no run, fuller length delivery just outside off, Razzak reaches out and looks to drive, misses it
19.2 Panyangara to Sohag, leg byes, 1 run, good length delivery on the middle, Sohag stays back and looks to play across, pads it to cover
19.1 Panyangara to Rahim, out Caught by Sean Williams!! Is this the end for Bangladesh? The danger man goes as Panyangara works his magic. It was a slower full toss, Rahim goes on the backfoot and pulls it deep square leg. But a fielder has been placed there and he catches it well inside the rope. Rahim c Sean Williams b Panyangara 28(14) [4s-1 6s-2]
Panyangara to Rahim, THATS OUT!! Caught!!

18.3 B Vitori to Rahim, 1 run, Rahim comes forward and glances a good length delivery on the off to deep square leg
18.2 B Vitori to Rahim, SIX, WHAM! The captain is winning it for them! It was a good length delivery well outside off, Rahim reaches out and bangs it over the sweeper cover fence for a maximum

Brian Vitori [3.0-0-14-1] is back into the attack

17.5 Panyangara to Rahim, 2 runs, third umpire rules it in favour of Rahim as there was too much of doubt whether the bat was in the air or not.
