Bangladesh v Zimbabwe - match abandoned
Fourth One-Day International, Chittagong

The fourth One-Day International between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in Chittagong was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to heavy rain.

After a number of inspections by the umpires, the match was called off around four hours after the scheduled start time.

Bangladesh lead the series 2-1 after they hit back to win the second and third matches following a nine-run success for Zimbabwe in the opening game in Mirpur.

The fifth and final match is scheduled for the 12th December and the abandonment follows the decision taken by Sri Lanka Cricket and the West Indies Cricket Board to postpone an ODI series in Sri Lanka until next year due to rainy conditions.
