Bangladesh set a target of 277 runs for the visiting Zimbabwe in the last one-day international of the three-match series at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday afternoon.
Three batsman of Bangladesh hit fifty. Openers Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes scored 73 runs each while Mahmudullah contributed 52 runs. The trio helped the Tigers score 276 for nine against the tourists.
The hosts were seemingly paid little attention to the game as three batsmen of the Tigers became victims of stamped out and two were run out.
Luke Jongwe and Graeme Cremer were most successful from the visitors, taking two wickets each.
Earlier, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza decided to bat first in the third ODI against Zimbabwe in Mirpur.
This was his first time he had won the toss in this ODI series, which the home side had already clinched 2-0 after Monday’s 58-run win.
Both teams remained unchanged as the visitors looked to salvage some pride in what had so far been a winless tour.
