Bangladesh completed their memorable overseas trip in
style as makeshift opener Mushfiqur Rahim slammed 98 after Dollar Mahmud's
four-wicket burst to script a five-wicket victory in the fifth and last one-day
at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo.
Having confirmed the series victory in the previous
game, Shakib Al Hasan's men showed no mercy to the home team in the dead rubber
to make it 4-1.
After three high-scoring matches, right-arm paceman

Zimbabwean top order.
The 20-year old right-arm pacer's career-best bowling
saw the home team bundled out for 209 runs in 46.4 overs. At one stage the home
side were reduced to a precarious 69 for 6 in the 15th over but Brendan Taylor
(61) and Ray Price (46) salvaged the innings.
Mushfiqur then took the spotlight as the
wicketkeeper-batsman capitalized on the opportunity of opening the innings in
