The final ODI of the three-match series between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh takes place at the Harare Sports Club on Wednesday. Zimbabwe have already won the series after beating Bangladesh in the first and second games. Both victories were by five wicket margins. Read on as we preview this third ODI. The game gets underway at 09:15 local time.
Zimbabwe have won both games and have now secured the ODI series alongside the IT20 from last week. With Sikandar Raza playing some of the best cricket of his life, they are very hard to contain.
Bangladesh were already without some of their strongest players before this tour started and the injuries to Liton Das and Mustafizur Rahman have further weakened them. However, they still have enough talent to win this match.

ZIM vs BAN Match Toss Prediction
The hosts have chosen to field first ahead of both games and have got the win on both occasions. It would be a surprise if either captain chose to bat first in this final game of the series.
ZIM vs BAN Pitch Report
This Harare wicket has certainly turned and given most assistance to the spinners so far. We expect the pitch to play in a similar manner with a par score 310-315.
Sunny throughout with a cool start to the game. The temperature will quickly climb to 25 degrees and may well get as high as 27 later in the day.
