Zimbabwe goes head to head against Bangladesh in the third and final ODI looking to clean sweep the series 3-0. They are leading the series 2-0 after two big wins back to back. Sikandar Raza scored centuries in both games and played a key role in the two wins. The third ODI will be played on August 10, Wednesday in Harare.

Zimbabwe has played some brilliant cricket in the first two chases. They chased a score of over 300 in the first ODI and 291 in the second ODI. In both these games, their batting depth has been tested and they have come out with flying colours. Raza and Innocent Kaia scored centuries in the first game. In the second Raza found support from his skipper Regis Chakabva who scored 102 from 75 balls.

“Thought the bowlers did an exceptional job. To be on this journey where we’re winning and achieving something is great. You have a hundred from me, a hundred from Regis, the cameo from Tony tells the depth of the squad. To have a winning changing room for the youngsters to enjoy” said Raza after picking up the Man of the Match award.

For Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal it was disappointment after yet another ODI series loss. They came into the series after beating West Indies in an ODI series but Zimbabwe got the better of them in this series. 

 “We put a decent total. We got a good start but no one continued. The wicket was good from the beginning. It wasn’t easy against the spinners. All credit to Zimbabwe, they were the better team this series. We have to pull up our socks. We haven’t played our best cricket and that’s why we are in this position” said a dejected Tamim Iqbal.
