Mortaza wins toss, Bangladesh to bowl in 2nd ODI vs…


CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh – Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza won the toss and opted to bowl first against Zimbabwe in the second limited-overs international.

Mortaza said the dew factor, which could play an important role in the later part of the innings, was a big factor in his decision to send the visitors in to bat on Wednesday.

Bangladesh can clinch the three-game series with a victory here after winning the opener by 28 runs.

Zimbabwe made one change as it seeks a series-leveling win, recalling experienced allrounder Elton Chigumbura in the place of Craig Ervine.
