Tigers set Zimbabwe 257-run target in 3rd ODI 

Bangladesh 256-9, 50 overs (Afif Hossain 85 not out, Anamul Haque 76; L. Jongwe 2-38, B. Evans 2-53) v Zimbabwe

Bangladesh have set a 256-run target for Zimbabwe in the third One-Day International at Harare Sports Club on Wednesday (Aug 10).

Earlier in the day, Zimbabwe won the toss and sent Bangladesh to bat first.

Bangladesh scored 256 runs for nine in the stipulated 50 overs. Afif Hossain earned 85 not out off 81 balls while Anamul Haque 76 off 71 balls.

Brad Evans and Luke Jongwe bagged two wickets each.

The Tigers have already lost the three-match T20 series by 2-1, which was also their first ever series defeat at the hands of Zimbabwe in this format.

Bangladesh were whitewashed at the hands of Zimbabwe twice in the history in ODI format, and both in 2001 during the first two meetings of the two sides.

Bangladesh and Zimbabwe played 18 bilateral ODI series before the ongoing three-match series, amongst which, the Tigers won 12 and lost 6. However Zimbabwe increased the number of winning series to 7 after, clinching the current series.

Before losing this one, Bangladesh won five straight series against the African opponents and whitewashed them in all of those five series, which extended their winning streak to 19.
