Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taykor said afterwards:'This was absolutely awesome, the most exhilarating match of my life and the most dramatic for all Zimbabweans.
'I was never sure we had enough with our 250 runs effort and so it almost proved. It just shows that you never know in cricket. I am really proud of the team for sticking to their guns, not just in this match but for the entire tour so far.'
A century in exactly 100 balls by Mushfuqur Rahim in a gallant attempt to get his Bangladeshis home was almost lost in the excitement. It was his first in internationals and he simply needed a good partner to achieve victory.
