Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe, 1st ODI Preview
BAN vs ZIM Dream11 Match Predictions
Zimbabwe Tour of Bangladesh, 2018
Post Asia Cup loss, Bangladesh is hosting Zimbabwe for the 3-match ODI series starting from October 19 which will be followed by 2-match Test series.
Disappointing series against South Africa
Zimbabwe is coming after a disappointing South Africa tour where they failed to secure a single win. South Africa clinched the ODI series by 3-0 while named the T20I series by 2-0 after the last game got abandoned due to the rain. So, after a complete whitewash, Zimbabwe would be hoping some change in fortune when they face Bangladesh in the first ODI tomorrow. They have been boosted by the return of their all-rounder Sikandar Raza who was in good form in Afghanistan Premier League.
Injury concerns for Bangladesh
Bangladesh, who will be led by Mahmudullah in the absence of regular skipper Shakib Al Hasan, is encountering a series of injury issues. While Shakib Al Hasan is expected to remain unavailable for the Windies series also, Tamim Iqbal is recovering from the hand injury he encountered in the opening game of Asia Cup. Regular wicketkeeper-batsman Musfiqur Rahim is also recovering from rib injury while Mahmudullah is nursing his back injury.
Venue- Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka
