Zimbabwe tour of Bangladesh, 2010/11 / Commentary

Zimbabwe in Bangladesh ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Bangladesh v Zimbabwe

Bangladesh won by 65 runs

Mpfou to Tamim

Cloudy conditions and it is expected to rain later on.

The news on Chigumbura is that he got injured while practicing yesterday, a groin injury. There are three changes to Zimbabwe, Cremer and both the Maskadza are in. Bangladesh are unchanged.

Shabab: "This game will shift the balance of the series towards the winner. For Bangladesh, it is an opportunity to post a big total and show that the batting performance in the 2nd ODI was not a one-off good performance from the middle order."

We have the first comment of the day from Sajjad: "Mashrafee should be rested and the board should let him play domestic cricket before he come into the national team."

Toss: Zimbabwe won the toss and have elected to field, Chigumbura is out and Utseya is the captain for this game.

The series is level at 1-1, it was supposed to be a day-night encounter but as the new floodlights are not fully functional, we are having a day game.

Good morning and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage of the 3rd ODI, I am Binoy George and along with Raghav will bring you the live commentary.
