Bangladesh 297/6 (50.0 ov)
Zim 173 (39.5 ov)
Bangladesh won by 125 runs.
Zimbabwe crashed to a 125-run defeat to concede the series to Bangladesh after their third ODI Wednesday.
Zimbabwe skipper Elton Chigumbura blamed the team’s third straight loss on ‘mistakes’ and said new players did not perform to expectations.
Fans, however, blame the loss on poor administration and alleged corruption within Zimbabwe Cricket. The fans have launched a petition campaign appealing to the International Cricket Council to intervene and rescue the Zimbabwe game. The petition campaign received vital endorsement from former sports minister David Coltart, who has previously complained about the sport’s administration.
The fans demanded the dismissal of coach Stephen Mangongo, transparency over money, selection of players and officials on merit and removal of incompetent admin staff.
