Bangladesh tour of Zimbabwe, 4th ODI: Zimbabwe v Bangladesh at Harare, Aug 4, 2006
Zimbabwe won by 7 wickets (with 50 balls remaining)
Played at Harare Sports Club
4 August 2006 (50-over match)

After a thrilling finish to the third ODI, we are here at Harare for the fourth ODI. Zimbabwe lead the series 2-1. Hello and Welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage. I am Binoy George and I will take you through the proceedings.

As Mupariwa is ruled out of the remainder of the series, he will be replaced by Rainsford, who was passed fit. That is only likely change in the Zimbabwe team.

Can Bangladesh get back in the series with a win here and level the series? Please stay tuned for another fascinating contest on the card.
