Bangladesh 130 for 5 (Mahmudullah 51*, Chatara 3-44) beat Zimbabwe 128 (Masakadza 52, Taijul 4-11, Shakib 3-30) by five wickets.
Cricket fans in Zimbabwe have called for the resignation of coach Stephen Mangongo after Bangladesh defeated Zimbabwe by six wickets in the final ODI of the five-match series to complete a whitewash at Mirpur Monday.
This is the second time Zimbabwe has been whitewashed by the Tigers in the tournament, the first time having been in 2006.
“Zimbabwe have plumbed new depths of despair,” said David Coltart, former sports minister and an avid cricket fan.
Cricket Zimbabwe news website called on Mangongo to resign.
“Hopefully Mangongo will do the honourable thing. (He must) admit that he has failed and international cricket is too much for him and just step down. No need to put on a brave face or anything. Mangongo please GO,” Cricket Zimbabwe said.
