DOT Desk:  The ODI series began as a possible Mashrafe Mortaza farewell series, and after a thrilling finish in the second game and Bangladesh taking the series 2-0, the dead rubber on Friday is now going to be Mortaza’s last as captain. Zimbabwe suddenly found their mojo through some big-hitting from the unlikely source of Donald Tiripano, to which the home side will counter with some of their more skilled bowlers.
 Both sides are taking baby steps back into good performances at the international stage. Two consecutive 300-plus totals will definitely give Bangladesh some idea of what they should focus on, against any bowling attack. Both openers, Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das, have made hundreds while Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mohammad Mithun got runs at important junctures. They will be without Mushfiqur Rahim for this game, after the BCB president Nazmul Hassan decided to “rest” him to have a look at another young player for the Pakistan ODI which Rahim will miss next month, reports ESPN cricinfo.
 Liton Das scored 102 from 116 deliveries. Tamim Iqbal 79 from 84 deliveries. Overall, BAN 205/0 (35.0/43 ov), reports cricbuzz.
