Hamilton Masakadza's determined 111 not out went in vain as Bangladesh wrapped up only their fourth Test win yesterday to earn a share of a two-match series with Zimbabwe

Masakadza held off the Bangladesh attack for more than six hours but lacked support at the other end, allowing the tourists to bowl Zimbabwe out for 257 and complete a 143-run victory at Harare Sports Club.

The home side went into the final day with six wickets intact and a slim chance of scoring the 263 runs still required to chase down a target of 401.
