    Chasing a rigid set of 298 rpm published by Zimbabwe, Bangladesh crossed the line comfortably with two extra overs.

    Tamim, who played the ODI series “Managing His Knee Pain”, uploaded just 87 of his hundreds – the fastest left-hander in ODI. Tamim’s 97-ball 112, including eight limits and three maximums, was even more impressive as the southpaw put its lips to the challenge of the challenging match.

    After a great 88 start with Liton Das, Tamim starred in another crucial 59-second wicket booth with Shakib Al Hasan, before ousting the all-rounder champion in the 26th over.

    Shakib, who came fresh from an undefeated 96 win in the second ODI, was introduced with a huge six over the middle wicket and looked good until he cut Luke Jongwe’s outside delivery hard and turned it back on guard. He had to walk back after 42 bullets 30.

    At one point, Bangladesh seemed to be embarrassing when the Tigers lost Captain Tamim and Mahmoud Riyadh in back-to-back deliveries in the 35th. Donald Tripapano challenged the bats of Tamim and Mahmoudullah to reduce Bangladesh to 204 for four after 34.2 overs.

    But Nurul, who replaced the injured Mehedi Hasan Miraz for the game, seized the opportunity and made a statement through the undefeated 45-yard line, tying a fifth wicket 64 stop with Mohammad Mithun to ensure Bangladesh would not suffers the collapse of the baton after imposing authority
    After the end of Mithun 57’s 57-ball, Nurul and Afif Hossain (26 of 17) entered the end to secure Bangladesh’s triumph.

    Earlier, after entering Bangladesh, Zimbabwe led Chakabwa’s attacking authority to lay the groundwork for the big team. Following Chakabwa’s 91-ball 84, the fast fifty-year-olds from Sicadar Raza (57 to 54) and Ryan Bour (59 to 43) helped the home side reach 300.

    It was a day to forget Mohammad Saifuddin, as the all-rounder broke for 87 runs in eight overs. But the 24-year-old was somewhat redeemed with three wickets in his last.
