Zimbabwe put up a total of 298 runs in the third match of the three-match series against Bangladesh on Tuesday at the Harare Sports Club.
They lost the toss and batted first in this match.
Bangladesh made two changes to their playing XI from the last match. Mehidy Hasan and Shoriful Islam were rested to pave way for Nurul Hasa Shohan and Mustafizur Rahman.
Regis Chakabva, who opened the innings for the hosts today, struck 84 off 91 balls with seven fours and one six. It was his second fifty in the event.
In the sixth wicket stand, Sikandar Raza and Ryan Burl added 112 runs, the highest runs in a single partnership in Zimbabwe’s innings. The stand was broken by Mustafizur, who was playing his first ODI in this series, removing Raza for 57 off 54 balls.
But Burl was there in the middle. Before falling prey to Saifuddin, Burl posted 59 off 43 with four fours and as many as sixes.
Saifuddin bagged three wickets in the 48th over removing Burl, Donald Tiripano and Tendai Chatara. Saifuddin conceded 87 runs in 8 overs to take three wickets. Mustafizur also bagged three wickets conceding 57 runs.
They eventually ended up on 298 all out in 49.3 overs.
Bangladesh won the first two matches of this series and won the series as well.
