Sikandar Raza and Brian Bennett scored half-centuries as Zimbabwe secured a consolation eight-wicket win over Bangladesh in the final Twenty20 International in Dhaka on Sunday and avoided a 5-0 defeat.

Captain Raza scored an unbeaten 72 off 46 balls to take Zimbabwe to 158-2, after which they restricted Bangladesh, who had won the first four matches of the series, to 157-6.

Bennett scored 70 off 49 balls after taking 2-20 with the ball at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
Zimbabwe lost opener Tadivanashe Marumani for one run, but Bennett and Raza added 75 runs for the second wicket to keep the visitors firmly in control.

Mohammed Saifuddin dismissed Bennett, who hit five fours and as many sixes, but Raza gave Zimbabwe the win despite a muscle injury.
