Tamim: "I think Pacers will get extra benfit due to this wet weather. However Bangladesh should seal this series to victory today. Hope this wont be another one man show. everyone should perform."
10:15am: The umpires are having an inspection of the ground at the moment.
Zimbabwe just cannot seem to solve the Abdur Razzak conundrum. The left-arm spinner has taken 13 wickets in the three matches so far, and Zimbabwe coach Alan Butcher has said his batsmen were having technical problems in playing Razzak. Batting has clearly been an area of concern for Zimbabwe. The problem seems to be an over-reliance on Brendan Taylor and Tatenda Taibu. On the four occasions Zimbabwe have managed to score more than 250 runs in 2010, either of those two has got a half-century. With both struggling so far in this series, the other batsmen haven't been able to take Zimbabwe to decent totals.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, are motoring along nicely on all fronts. Shakib Al Hasan said the most pleasing thing about the previous match was the performance of his fast bowlers. Shafiul Islam and Mashrafe Mortaza had taken just one wicket between them in the first two games, but combined to pick up five in the third. Bangladesh will hope they can continue to assist the left-arm spinners so they have a more balanced bowling attack going into the World Cup.
There is some extra motivation for Bangladesh as well. They have a chance to break into the top eight in the ICC ODI rankings if they win the two remaining games in the series. With West Indies' one-day series in Sri Lanka postponed till next month, Bangladesh could go equal with them on 67 points, after which the rankings will be determined by the trailing decimals.
