Written by Abhishek Lohia

After a great victory over Sri-Lanka on previous week Bangladeshi Tigers are still looking for another victory. 5th ODI of this series is going to held on Tuesday, 23rd January, between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. Bangladesh is at the top of the points table with the help of two bonus points, which he got against a 163 runs superb victory over Sri Lanka, while Zimbabwe is second on this table, they got their points by victory over Sri Lanka.

The previous night during a press conference Bangladeshi skipper Mushrafe Mortaza speaks about his team performance, he said,” Team is doing great, Bowlers are doing well especially Sakib, who picks 6 wickets in earlier 2 matches of this Tri-National Series”.

Bangladeshi skipper also said about his opening batsman Tamim Iqbal, he said during the interview “His Innings during 3rd ODI against Sri Lanka boosted our confidence, which helps us to score 300 plus on that pitch.

The highest score on this ground is 370/4, which was made by India on ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, where Sehwag played a massive 175 runs innings and Kohli’s scored a fabulous 100.

Tamim has been the top scoring batsman in this series so far, he scored (84*) in the first ODI against Zimbabwe. He also scored 84 in the third ODI against Sri Lanka. His innings help Bangladesh to set a mammoth total of 320/7.

On another side, Zimbabwe is second on the points table; his win over Sri Lanka provides them 2 points to continue their life in this Tri-Series. Zimbabwe lost their last match against Sri Lanka; they have been bowled out on 44th over. Only wicket-keeper batsman Brendon Taylor’s massive(58) improves the score of their team, apart from them no other batsman enables to score a big knock.

Now the scenario of this Tri-series is that, If Zimbabwe will lost this match against Bangladesh, than they will out of this series and final of this series will held between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. If Zimbabwe wins this match, then the match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will be a final decider.
