Bangladesh win again


The hosts won the five-match series 4-1. Naeem's maiden one-day international half-century took his team to 222 for nine from 49 overs after Zimbabwe had scored 221 for nine from their 50 overs. Brendon Taylor compiled an unbeaten 118, his first one-day century.

The right-hander struck medium-pacer Justice Chibhabha for three sixes off consecutive deliveries in the 48th over after Bangladesh had lost their ninth wicket for 187 runs. Nazmul Hossain then scored just one run in a last wicket partnership of 35 with Naeem.  
Zimbabwe had looked set for a consolation victory after Taylor's hundred.
