Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI: Zimbabwean star batsman Brendon Taylor nearly found himself unlucky after he blocked a throw from the bowler and the Bangladeshi players went up in an appeal for obstructing the field. The umpires had a long, hard conversation with each other and later decided to give it not out as the batsman did not do it on purpose and was not out of his crease when it happened. The instance reminded us of a similar incident when former Pakistan batsman Inzamam ul Haq was given out. The difference in the two cases are, Inzamam was out of his crease and the throw came in from a fielder and not a bowler. It happened in the 13th over of the math when Zimbabwe was 45/2.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh won the toss and opted to field first at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong. The touring side got off to a disastrous start losing two quick wickets of their openers when the score was six. They lost Hamilton Masakadza (2) and Cephas Zhuwao (0), Saifuddin and Hider picked a wicket apiece. Since then Brendon Taylor (75) and Sean Williams (86*) got things back on track for the visitors.
