Soumya Sarker has been added to the Bangladesh side for the third and final ODI of the series against Zimbabwe.
The left-hand batsman joins a squad that otherwise remains unchanged from the first two matches. Bangladesh has an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, following the record 169-run and four-run victory.
Soumya Sarkar initially opted himself out from the Zimbabwe series due to his wedding ceremony.
