Shakib powers Bangla to 3-0 series victory

Bangladesh had earlier clinched a one-day series against minnows Zimbabwe and a depleted West Indies, but it was their first series victory against a big team, thanks to skipper Shakib. Shakib, 23, was key to Bangladesh’s victory before a sizeable crowd at the Shere Bangla National stadium, hitting a 113-ball 106 for his fifth one-day hundred to help his side post 241.

New Zealand were bowled out for 232 in the last over, with middle-order batsman Kane Williamson posing a major threat to Bangladesh’s total with a fighting 108 for his maiden one-day hundred.
