To Win Match *Betting TBA
Zimbabwe | Tie 25/1 | Bangladesh

Zimbabwe

Sikandar Raza has been nothing short of brilliant for Zimbabwe in this series twice registering unbeaten hundreds and doing his part with the ball.

Innocent Kaia has been in good touch with the bat and is a dangerman in the fifty-over game for sure based on his recent form.

Regis Chakabva also tonned up last time out as Zimbabwe cantered to a series-clinching win in Harare on Sunday.

Wesley Madhevere is also showing great promise as a batting all-rounder and adds options for his skipper.

Bangladesh

Tamim Iqbal top-scored in the second ODI for the Tigers but couldn’t lead the team to victory as they once again fell short of a par score.

Critics might suggest that Tamim taking his time has hampered their efforts to get a big score so far.

Their spinners haven’t been able to influence the game as much as expected either, leaving them looking second best to the hosts.

Bangladesh sport a long tail and haven’t used their bowling options well which has hampered their efforts in Zimbabwe.

Verdict: Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe should complete the 3-0 series wipe.
