Mustafizur Rahman's career-best figures of 6 for 10, combined with an unbeaten century partnership between Tanzid Hasan and Soumya Sarkar, led Bangladesh to a dominant ten-wicket victory over the USA in the third and final T20I in Dallas. 

Despite the win, the USA secured the series 2-1 and celebrated their milestone achievement.

Mustafizur's six-wicket haul, the first for a Bangladesh bowler in T20Is, limited the USA to 104 for 9. In response, Tanzid and Sarkar effortlessly chased down the target, scoring 108 runs in just 11.5 overs. This was Mustafizur's second six-wicket performance in white-ball cricket, following his 6 for 43 against India in a 2015 ODI.

Adding to the impressive bowling, wristspinner Rishad Hossain delivered an exceptional spell, conceding only seven runs in four overs and taking a wicket, marking Bangladesh's most economical T20I spell for a full four-over quota. Additionally, Shakib Al Hasan achieved a significant milestone in the same match.

Shakib reached his 700th international wicket milestone.

With the series already secured, the USA rested key players Monank Patel, Steven Taylor, Harmeet Singh, and Ali Khan. They began their innings aggressively, with Shayan Jahangir hitting two fours off Hasan Mahmud in the second over, and Andries Gous striking Shakib for a six over midwicket. Gous continued his assault on Tanzim Hasan Sakib with a series of impressive shots, including a stylish flick.

Gous concluded the fourth over with another four, and after Jahangir lofted Shakib for a six in the next over, Najmul Hossain Shanto dropped a catch from Gous at 23. Gous responded by hitting the next ball for four but was eventually dismissed by Shakib in the same over, scoring 27 off 15 balls. This wicket marked Shakib's 700th in international cricket, making him the 17th player to reach this milestone and the first to do so with over 14,000 runs.
