Can Tigers wrap it up today?

Fourth ODI today

Bangladesh need to recover from the jolt they received in the last game on Friday when they take on Zimbabwe in the fourth one-day international at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo today.
Prosper Utseya's men came back strongly to secure a 69-run victory in the third game and stopped the Tigers from taking an unassailable 3-0 lead.
After two comprehensive victories, Shakib Al Hasan's men were nowhere near their game in the third match and they now require a clinical effort if they want to wrap up the series with one match in hand.
Bangladesh's pace attack has been weakened by the absence of their frontline new-ball bowlers. And the indisciplined showing by the slow bowlers on the tailor-made batting track in Friday's match has become a real cause for concern for the visitors as spinners emerged as the main weapon for their success in the West Indies, and also in the first two Zimbabwe matches.
Zimbabwe capitalised hundred per cent on the poor bowling in the third match to score their highest ODI total against Bangladesh, 323, which virtually decided the fate of the match.
Today's match starts at 2:30pm Bangladesh time. TEN Sports and Bangladesh Television will telecast the game live.
Bangladesh made one change to Friday's squad as Mehrab Hossain makes way for Zunaed Siddiqui.
