Bangladesh take on a touring Zimbabwean side in the third encounter of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday. Catch live scorecard and ball-by-ball commentary of the Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI at Dhaka.

Bangladesh had earlier defeated Zimbabwe by 68 runs in the second ODI at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium in Chittagong on Sunday to go 2-0 up. For Zimbabwe, their problem is the same old nagging one — the inability to play spin bowling. It hasn’t helped that they’ve had to tackle the Bangladeshi spinners under pressure in run chase situations.

Perhaps simply winning the toss will be a good point to take things forward from as it may allow their batsmen to play with a little more freedom. To give Bangladesh a run for their money and to stay alive in the series, Zimbabwe require an innings of substance from their top order batsmen.
