ABOUT THE MATCH

Bangladesh will take on Zimbabwe in a 3 match ODI series followed by 2 Tests. They will meet in the first of the 3 ODIS in Dhaka on Sunday.

Match Preview

Bangladesh and Zimbabwe have played 69 ODIs so far with Bangladesh winning 41 and Zimbabwe winning 28. The hosts just reached the final of the Asia Cup where they lost to India while Zimbabwe just had a miserable tour of South Africa. Both teams will be looking to make amends.

Bangladesh have beaten Zimbabwe in their last 5 ODI meetings and they look like the stronger side here as well.

iconBangladesh Team News

Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan will both miss out on the series after their respective hand injuries during the Asia Cup. Mohammad Saifuddin and Fazle Mahmud have been drafted in as replacements. Saifuddin last played for Bangladesh in February while 30-year-old Mahmud will be making his ODI debut.

Soumya Sarkar and Mosaddek Hossain have been dropped from the squad while Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah and Rubel Hossain have been retained. These 3 will have to chip in with their experience.

iconZimbabwe Team News

After their disastrous tour of South Africa, Zimbabwe will be boosted by the return of pacer Sikandar Raza to the ODI squad. The 32 year old has sorted out his contractual issue with the Zimbabwe board and will hope to make an instant impact.

Pitch Conditions

 

A sunny sky is expected in Dhaka which means a dry pitch will greet both the teams. There are plenty of runs on this pitch but it will have something for the pacers as well. The pitch is likely to deteriorate with the day so the team bowling first will have an edge.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss will elect to field first.

Our Match Prediction

Bangladesh to win the first ODI with relative ease.
