Zimbabwe snatched an astonishing victory over Bangladesh at Harare Sports Club here Tuesday to win their five-match ODI series three up and two to play.

They got home with just four balls to spare, grabbing the final Bangladesh wicket with a boundary catch when the tourists needed only six runs to win themselves. Zimbabwe, having been put into bat, made 250 for seven wickets down, with Bangladesh 245 all out in reply. A century in exactly 100 balls by Mushfuqur Rahim was almost lost in the excitement.
