Ryan Burl’s match, 34 runs in an over© AFP
It was in the 15th over of Zimbabwe’s batting innings that the momentum was brought towards the hosts. Ryan Burl smashed 34 runs in the over bowled by Nasum Ahmed, including five sixes and one four.
On the first four balls of the over, Burl hit sixes, and then on the fifth ball, he hit a four. Then, once again on the final ball of the over, he hit a maximum, taking 34 runs off the over.
Not an over we usually see! Truly unbelievable batting from @ryanburl3!

Chasing 156, Bangladesh required at least one batter to stay at the crease for a long haul, but this did not prove to be the case. For the visitors, Afif Hossain top-scored with an unbeaten knock of 39.
Zimbabwe had won the first T20I by 17 runs while Bangladesh had won the second by 7 wickets. However, in the decider, the hosts held their nerve to seal the contest.
Both the teams will now contest a three-match ODI series, beginning August 5 at Harare.
