Tigers sent to bat first in 3rd ODI vs Zimbabwe 

Zimbabwe won the toss and sent Bangladesh to bat first in the third and final ODI at Harare Sports Club on Wednesday (Aug 10).

The Tigers have already lost the three-match T20 series by 2-1, which was also their first ever series defeat at the hands of Zimbabwe in this format.

Bangladesh were whitewashed at the hands of Zimbabwe twice in the history in ODI format, and both in 2001 during the first two meetings of the two sides.

Thereafter even a full-strength Zimbabwe could never sweep the series against them. Rather Bangladesh dominated Zimbabwe in a style that hardly any team could do against any particular opponent.

Bangladesh and Zimbabwe played 18 bilateral ODI series before the ongoing three-match series, amongst which, the Tigers won 12 and lost 6. However Zimbabwe increased the number of winning series to 7 after, clinching the current series.

Before losing this one, Bangladesh won five straight series against the African opponents and whitewashed them in all of those five series, which extended their winning streak to 19.
