Both sides head into the final T20I eyeing a victory in the three-match series.
Updated - Aug 2, 2022 1:26 pm
The Harare Sports Club will host the final T20I of the series between hosts Zimbabwe and Bangladesh on Tuesday, August 2, with the series levelled at 1-1. The visitors redeemed themselves in the second T20I with a comprehensive victory after suffering an embarrassing loss in the series opener. The loss of stand-in skipper Nurul Hasan will be a huge blow for the visitors, who fractured his index finger while keeping the wickets in the second T20I.
Meanwhile, the hosts, who were out in the first match of the series by the belligerence of Sikandar Raza, will be pondering over the poor form of their top two batters. The Zimbabwe batters will have to pull up their socks in the series decider to turn over a resurgent Bangladesh side to claim the series.

ZIM vs BAN, 3rd T20I Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter
Zimbabwe’s veteran middle order batter Sikandar Raza has been in tremendous form in the series after recording back-to-back fifties. He has showcased his adaptability by playing two contrasting yet impactful innings so far, and given his exploits, he will be hoping to leave a stamp on the series decider.
Probable best bowler
While Mehidy Hasan has risen considerably in international cricket in the last 12 months, he has finally found a more than an able partner in crime in the form of young offi-spinner Mosaddek Hossain. The 26-year-old bamboozled the batters in the second T20I on his way to his maiden fifer for the national team.
