Bangladesh are 40 for no loss in 10  overs in the third One Day International against Zimbabwe at Dhaka. Bangladesh openers, Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque have begun cautiously , ticking the strike over, with an occasional boundary.

Tamim  Had got off the mark with a six on the last ball of the first over, depositing Tinashe Panyangara into the stands but since then he has gone into his shell a little bit. Anamul has been subdued, but he usually takes a little time to get into his stride. Both openers have been in pretty good form, having registered the second highest opening stand for Bangladesh in One Day Internationals just a few days ago. Tamim Iqbal is batting on 13 of 28 balls and Anamul on 18 off 32 balls.
