This keeps the gap with Australia to just seven. Bangladesh won the first ODI in Mirpur by 28 runs and won the next two ODIs in Chattogram by seven wickets each. This is their 10th ODI series win over Zimbabwe and fourth whitewash.
They now have a difference of seven with sixth-ranked side Australia, who are with exactly 100 points. Meanwhile, Bangladesh are 14 points ahead of number eight Sri Lanka (79). Bangladesh’s next series is against the Windies whom they will play three ODIs at home.
