Ban vs Zim 3rd ODI Highlights today Tuesday, 7-20-2021 – 3rd ODI, Bangladesh tour of Zimbabwe (ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League) from Harare Sports Club.
Tamim Iqbal won the toss and chose to bowl first.
Tamim Iqbal: In two games we bowled fist and did well. Looks like a good wicket today and looks to be similar to the last game, it’s overcast and looks tacky. You can’t relax at all in the Super League, and we know Zimbabwe can be really, really dangerous. Very happy with the way our bowlers are bowling, we’d like to improve our batting, especially in the top four, including me.
Brendan Taylor: Happy, we’d have batted. With the batting perspective, we need to rotate the strike a little better. And improve our fielding as well. The wicket looks good and it might get a bit tight later. We’re just going through a mental blip, otherwise, we can touch the 280 mark.
Bangladesh team: 1 Tamim Iqbal (capt), 2 Liton Das (wk), 3 Shakib Al Hasan, 4 Mohammad Mithun, 5 Mosaddek Hossain, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Afif Hossain, 8 Nurul Hasan, 9 Mohammad Saifuddin, 10 Taskin Ahmed, 11 Mustafizur Rahman.
Zimbabwe team: 1 Regis Chakabva (wk), 2 Tadiwanashe Marumani, 3 Brendan Taylor (capt), 4 Dion Myers, 5 Wessley Madhevere, 6 Sikandar Raza, 7 Ryan Burl, 8 Donald Tiripano, 9 Luke Jongwe, 10 Blessing Muzarabani, 11 Tendai Chatara.
Post Match Presentation.
Brendan Taylor: 15-20 runs short. They paced the innings beautifully. Tamim showed his class today. We can take some positives out of it though. Regis has really found another gear, I am really pleased for him. Raza and Burl performed well after coming from injuries. Muzarabani is our strike bowler, Tiripano had found some rhythm and some reverse swing, so I stuck with him but they saw him off.
Shakib Al Hasan is the Player of the Series. Shakib: Feels good to contribute to the team. Winning 3-0 against Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe is not easy. The pitch was really good today, and I feel I missed out. In T20Is, we have to be at our best as the game changes in the matter of an over. We will have to take it one game at a time.
Tamim Iqbal is the Player of the Match. Tamim: Happy that I contributed to the team. I thought it was a very good wicket, they batted exceptionally well. They could have 25-30 runs more but we bowled well in the last two three overs. It was a good challenge for the batting unit and we responded well. Unfortunately, I won’t be part of the T20 team because of my injury. I need to do rehab for 10-12 weeks. But all the best to the players and Eid Mubarak to everyone back home.
