Shakib Al Hasan took four wickets as Bangladesh skittled out Australia for their lowest ever Twenty20 total of 62 to seal the series 4-1 on Monday. Chasing 123 for victory, the visitors crashed out in 13.4 overs with Shakib returning figures of 4-9 with his left-arm spin in the 60-run rout in Dhaka.

Australia's previous lowest was 79 all out against England in 2005. Bangladesh, who had secured their first series win over Australia after winning the opening three matches, bounced back from their previous loss to flatten the opposition batting.

Obviously it was hard for the batters, but we did well to keep getting 120-130. All the bowlers worked really well together."

He said, "We always felt that in our backyard we are a very good team. We can't let anything go past. "Though the ranking doesn't show it, I have always felt we have very good potential to be a very good team in T20 internationals."
