Bangladesh secure series victory
One-day International, Harare: Bangladesh 245-9 (47.2 ovs) beat Zimbabwe 244-8 (50 ovs) by 1 wkt

A pulsating 92 from Aftab Ahmed helped Bangladesh to seal a 3-1 one-day series win against Zimbabwe after a one-wicket success in the final match in Harare.

Elton Chigumbura smashed seven sixes in an unbeaten 77 as Zimbabwe posted 244.

The Tigers lost opener Shahriar Nafees second ball with only three runs on the board but Ahmed added 132 for the third wicket with Mushfiqur Rahim.

Ahmed struck five sixes in his 12th ODI fifty and though three wickets fell for four runs, Bangladesh scraped home.

In addition to Chigumbura's heroics, half-centuries from Sean Williams and Chaminorwa Chibhabha ensured a reasonable total for Zimbabwe.

Skipper Habibul Bashar looked set to guide Bangladesh home, but he became the ninth wicket to fall when he was run-out, with three runs still needed.

But Abdur Razzak hit the winning runs when he slammed Chigumbura down the ground to the boundary.
