Match scorecard

Raqibul Hasan
The Tigers had their problems but eventually reached their target

Bangladesh completed a 2-1 one-day series victory against Zimbabwe after winning a fog-hit final match by six wickets in Mirpur with 27 balls left.

The foggy conditions restricted the contest to 37 overs per side and Zimbabwe lost Vusi Sibanda to the fifth ball after being asked to bat first.

Sean Williams hit five fours in 38 but the Zimbabweans only mustered 119-9.

Tamim Iqbal blasted five fours at the top of the innings in reply, and Shakib Al Hasan led the Tigers home with 33.

Shakib, the first Bangladesh player to top an International Cricket Council player ranking, having been named leading all-rounder in the latest standings, had another influential match with bat and ball.

Having taken 3-15 from his eight overs of slow left-arm, he then played a calm innings with the bat, although he was dropped before he had got off the mark, by Williams at deep mid-wicket.
