Bangladesh have the opportunity to show their surprise win was no fluke when they take on Zimbabwe in Friday's fourth one-day international in Harare.

For the first time ever, the Tigers took a 1-0 series lead after claiming the third match by eight runs - their first international win in five years.

"The tension in the dressing room was almost unbearable, but we managed it," said Bangladesh captain Habibul Bashar.

He added: "We got back the faith that we can win matches."

Zimbabwe will need to score more quickly on the generally slow pitches of the Harare Sports Club to avoid a similar loss.

But they will be boosted by the fact they could have secured victory on Wednesday had two wickets not fallen in the final over.

What kind of a crap comment is that!! Lol! "Had the two wickets not fallen" Hahaha. THEY FELL! Its like saying BD will be boosted by the fact that they could have secured victory in all their matches if their batting line up didn't collapse.

well said AGC. bd can be boosted by the fact that they would have a test win if they could get only one more wicket against pakistan, or even better if rasid ratif didn't cheated.

If zim can find ANYTHING that would boost their confidence from last match, they will never loose in their entire life.

If they had not lost two wickets in the final over, they could have won?

Sorry guys, sounds a lot like: "If aunty had balls, uncle would have been pregnant":mad:

Zim were beaten fair and square. They need to step up and deal with it.:mad:
