The visitors have clearly dominated the 3-match ODI series and will look forward to completing a series whitewash against Zimbabwe in the 3rd ODI on July 20. After Zimbabwe’s humiliating defeat in the 1st ODI, the home team gave a tough fight to the Tamim Iqbal-led side in the 2nd ODI, but it eventually went in the favour of Bangladesh, owing to Shakib Al Hasan’s phenomenal all-round performance. Zimbabwe will now play to salvage their pride to win this third ODI against Bangladesh.
Having clinched the series already, Bangladesh have looked in a remarkable form throughout the series. Key batsmen Liton Das and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be the top picks for batters from Bangladesh given their performance in the series so far. The latter can turn out to be a smart captain choice as well. Additionally, Shoriful Islam and Asif Hossain can also fetch some good points in fantasy through their respective contributions.
Although the home team have not looked in their best form in this series, a couple of players from Zimbabwe have impressed in this series. Wicket-keeper batsman Regis Chakabva and skipper Brendan Taylor should be the must-haves in one’s fantasy team. The two could also come in as good choices for vice-captain, given their form in the last 2 games. Adding on, Wesley Madhevere and Luke Jongwe could also deliver good performances.
