Bulawayo - Captain Brendan Taylor won a third straight toss as Zimbabwe once again gained the right to bowl first and take advantage of the early start in the third and decisive one-day international against Bangladesh on Wednesday.

Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim called incorrectly in all three matches, ensuring that his batsmen were forced to deal with the seam-friendly conditions that came with a 09:00 start.

Both sides made one change, with left-arm seamer Brian Vitori preferred to Shingirai Masakadza for Zimbabwe, and Mominul Haque replaced by Jahurul Islam at the top of the Bangladeshi batting order.

Bangladesh won the first one-day international by 121 runs, before Zimbabwe hit back with a six-wicket victory on Sunday.


Zimbabwe: Brendan Taylor (captain), Vusi Sibanda, Hamilton Masakadza, Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Elton Chigumbura, Prosper Utseya, Kyle Jarvis, Brian Vitori, Tendai Chatara.

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Ashraful, Jahurul Islam, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Ziaur Rahman, Abdur Razzak, Robiul Islam, Shafiul Islam.
