Bangladesh has won the ODI Cricket series

In Harare, Bangladesh went to play 4 matches one day series. In the first match Bangladesh won very easily and in the second match Bangladesh lost very easily. But the 3rd and 4th match was very incitement. In these two matches Bangladeshi players showed their best performances.

Sky Sports reported:

A classy 92 from Aftab Ahmed helped Bangladesh to a nervy one-wicket victory over Zimbabwe in the fourth One-Day International in Harare.

However, it took a cool head from Abdur Razzak to see the visitors home after Bangladesh had slumped from 209-3 with the loss of six wickets for 33 runs.

Aftab smashed five sixes and six fours as he plundered 92 off 77 balls - and alongside Mushfiqur Rahim (57) looked to have steered Bangladesh home after a third-wicket stand of 132.

But, chasing down Zimbabwe's total of 244-8, Bangladesh lost their way after Aftab was trapped leg before by Anthony Ireland.

Chris Mpofu weighed in with three wickets, while Prosper Utseya removed Rahim. However, Razzaq ended Zimbabwe's hopes of levelling the series as he drove the winning boundary.

These experiences will help Bangladeshi cricketers to show a good performance in the next world cup in West Indies.
