Harare Sports Club, Harare

The Stand-in skipper for today's game, Sikandar Raza, and the captain of Zimbabwe Regis Chakabva are handed the trophy. The other players from Zimbabwe join them and they celebrate their series victory! Right then! It's a historic series for the home side. They have managed to win the T20I as well as the ODI series! While Bangladesh will be disappointed with their series defeat but will be smiling as they have ended their tour on a high! That's it from this series then, but there is plenty of cricket action going on around, just switch tabs and enjoy! It's goodbye from here!
Regis Chakabva the skipper of Zimbabwe says they wanted to play positive cricket and win the series. Adds that Sikandar Raza had good partnerships with the bat and they bowled well too throughout the series. Mentions that they have always spoken about having a positive attitude and they did exactly that in the T20I and ODI series! Concludes by saying that they do have a few injuries in the camp, but hopefully, they will be back for the series against India!
Tamim Iqbal the skipper of  Bangladesh says that were struggling a bit and thought that the wicket was good again. Mentions that their target of around 260 looks even smaller when they have lost games after scoring 300. Says that luckily they got five wickets in quick succession and the game ended well for them. Mentions that Ebadot Hossain was available for the game and feels happy that he performed when the team needed him.
Sikandar Raza is named the Player of the Series! He says that it would have been nice to win the fine ODI but they will try and work hard to improve their game. Says that their thoughts and emotions were right and it's all about the preparation before the game. Further says that it is not easy but it's nice to see the youngsters perform really well and it is good to see the youngsters playing some good cameos.
Afif Hossain is named the Player of the Match! He says that it's nice to be on the winning side. Further says that they played well and they need to improve their bowling. Mentions that they are ready for the Asia Cup and they will be back in form and stronger again.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier in this game, Zimbabwe put on a good bowling effort by restricting Bangladesh to their lowest total in this series. Anamul Haque and Afif Hossain's half-tons helped Bangladesh put a total of 256 on the board which turned out to be enough in the end. In reply, Zimbabwe failed to get going, their last wicket put on an entertaining stand and gave something to cheer about to the fans at Harare. But eventually, they were handed a big defeat!
It's been a sorry batting performance from the home side in this final ODI! At the halfway mark of the match, they would have probably thought they would clinch this game and inflict an ODI series whitewash. But things did not go as planned for them. None of their batters found any sort of rhythm, some were bamboozled by the bowlers, while the others just gave away their wickets. Richard Ngarava and Victor Nyauchi put up a stand of 68 runs for the tenth wicket and took Zimbabwe to a score of 150 before Victor Nyauchi was dismissed. Zimbabwe's number 10 and number 11 were the top scorers in this game! Not a game that they would like to remember, but it's been a memorable series for them! They might have lost the final game but have secured the series 2-1!
Bangladesh bowlers were right on the money from the word go! Hasan Mahmud, Mehidy Hasan, and the debutant, Ebadot Hossain caused a lot of trouble with the new ball! They had Zimbabwe reeling at 18 for 4 in the sixth over and they made sure to capitalize on the start this time. They continued to grab wickets at regular intervals and demolished Zimbabwe's batting lineup. After failing to defend their target on the previous two occasions, the Bangla Tigers have defended a much lower total in this final game. The only thing that they will be disappointed about is that last wicket! They grabbed their ninth wicket in the 23rd over and managed to seal the game in the 33rd over. But you know what they say, Better late than never! Eventually, they did manage to bundle Zimbabwe out for a low score of 150! It's been a collective bowling performance for Bangladesh. Mustafizur Rahman was the leader of the pack as he grabbed four wickets in his spell. A special mention to Ebadot Hossain as well, who grabbed two wickets on his ODI debut including the prized scalp of Sikandar Raza!
After a bit of frustration towards the end, Bangladesh have finally managed to get over the line! What a turn of events we have just witnessed at the Harare Sports Club! Zimbabwe in the previous two ODIs chased targets of over 280, but failed to come out on top with the target being just 257! It's been a stupendous bowling performance from the visitors and they have ended the series with an emphatic victory!

Zimbabwe have done something that many would not have expected. But they have crossed every barrier, broken all the odds, and pulled off something special. They have scripted history by beating Bangladesh in the series and have one man to thank for this, Sikandar Raza. He has been scoring centuries for fun and seems unstoppable at the moment. He will once again play a crucial role for them with the bat and the ball. The home side will be aiming to carry on their winning momentum and whitewash Bangladesh. Can they do so? We will know soon. Stay tuned for the toss and other updates.

We are back for the chase! The players are out in the middle. Tadiwanashe Marumani and Takudzwanashe Kaitano will open the batting for Zimbabwe. Hasan Mahmud will begin the proceedings with the ball. Let's go!
... THE RUN CHASE ...
It's been another clinical performance for the hosts! They were well disciplined with the ball and were top-notch while fielding as well. At no point in the innings did they let the run rate go over 5.2. They grabbed wickets at crucial junctures and made sure that Bangladesh do not get away with a big stand. Zimbabwe will mightily be pleased with the show they have put on here. Brad Evans and Luke Jongwe were the bowlers who grabbed two wickets each, while Sikandar Raza and Richard Ngarava took a wicket apiece. Bangladesh have put up a fighting total on the board, but Zimbabwe have chased down bigger totals. The home side will fancy their chances of completing a series whitewash here! Can they do so? We will find out. Stick around for Zimbabwe's reply!
After being put in to bat first, Bangladesh did get off to a steady start. Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque put on 41 runs for the first wicket but failed to carry one as the former was sent back to the hut because of an unfortunate run-out. Once he departed, the visitors lost two wickets in quick succession and were put under the pump within the first Powerplay! Mahmudullah and Anamul Haque did some damage work and put on a stand of 77 runs before Mahmudullah's struggling innings came to an end. Bangladesh did put on small partnerships but they failed to convert those into big stands. As a result, they managed to put on 256 on the board. Afif Hossain and Anamul Haque were the two players who notched up their respective half-tons and have given the bowlers something to fight for!
An exceptional effort with the ball from Zimbabwe! On a wicket that was challenging for bowlers and a paradise for the batters, they have done a tremendous job to restrict Bangladesh to under 260! There is no doubt that they will be the happier side of the two going into the break!

TOSS - Zimbabwe have won the toss and they have elected to BOWL first!
Zimbabwe have done something that many would not have expected. But they have crossed every barrier, broken all the odds, and pulled off something special. They have scripted history by beating Bangladesh in the series and have one man to thank for this, Sikandar Raza. He has been scoring centuries for fun and seems unstoppable at the moment. He will once again play a crucial role for them with the bat and the ball. The home side will be aiming to carry on their winning momentum and whitewash Bangladesh. Can they do so? We will know soon. Stay tuned for the toss and other updates.
