Zimbabwe won the toss again, and for the third and final time in the ongoing series, they sent Bangladesh to bat first.

Bangladesh have lost the first two matches of the series. Now the Tigers can only have a consolation win on Wednesday.

In the first match, Bangladesh scored 303 and failed to defend it. In the second, they posted 290 and failed to defend it too. In both the matches, Sikandar Raza of Zimbabwe hit a ton and guided his team to two outstanding victories.

Bangladesh are struggling to field their best XI as Liton Das is suffering from injuries. Mustafizur Rahman also missed a match before staging a comeback for Wednesday's game.

The third match of the ODI series is the 400th ODI of Bangladesh. Coming into this landmark match, Bangladesh are eying a win -- the only happiness they can bring back from Zimbabwe.

Bangladesh made two changes to the playing XI, overlooking Shoriful Islam and Taskin Ahmed to pave the way for Ebadot Hossain and Mustafiz.
