BAN vs ZIM Dream11 Predictions
Zimbabwe tour of Bangladesh, 2018
Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh, 1st Test | BAN vs ZIM WHO WILL WIN
After completing a series whitewash in the ODI series, Bangladesh will look to take their imperious white-ball form in the longest format of the game when they take on a beleaguered Zimbabwe unit on Saturday
Hosts aim to extend their form in Test match cricket
Bangladesh’s last Test series resulted in a 0-2 whitewash against the West Indies but at home, they’ve had some pretty impressive results in the past couple of seasons- win against England & Australia in 2016 & 2017.
They would, however, be without their experienced duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, who have yet not recovered from their respective injuries. Their absence gives a chance to Liton Das and Imrul Kayes to translate their recent white-ball form in the longer format of the game while Mustafizur Rahman makes a return to the Test set-up. The left-hander, who missed the Test series against the Windies earlier this year, picked up an elbow injury during the recently concluded ODI series.
Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe Head to Head (Last 4 Tests)
Won by Bangladesh:- 4
Won by Zimbabwe- 0
Mustafizur will spearhead the bowling attack along with Mehidy Hasan Miraj as the hosts lost to make it five in a row against the African nation.
Beleaguered Zimbabwe look to stem the losing streak
26 December 2017 was the last time Zimbabwe featured in a Test match. It was a first-ever four-day Test where the Proteas quashed aside their African counterpart within two days.
Zimbabwe has had a forgettable 2018. After losing out on the World Cup spot, they haven’t been able to win an International match and have suffered back-to-back series whitewashes against South Africa and Bangladesh.
They will hope to revive their sinking ship in the format where their last win came five years ago (against Pakistan, 2013) and halt their 7-Test series losing streak.
