ZIM vs BAN: 3rd ODI: Match Prediction
Bangladesh is highly motivated to win the third game & wipe out the hosts from the series. Their batting line up is strong & their bowling has made a brilliant comeback in the 2nd match. Zimbabwe is facing difficulties with their batsman. They need batsman who can stay for longer hours at the pitch & can help in strike rotation. Odds are in favor for Bangladesh & probability of Bangladesh winning the third match is higher.
