ABOUT THE MATCH

Having started the ODI series with a bang in Dhaka, Bangladesh will hope to carry on the form when the two teams meet for the second of the 3 match ODI series in Chittagong.

Match Preview

Bangladesh have now won their last 11 meetings against Zimbabwe while the Africans have lost their last 11 ODI matches on the trot. In their last 9 matches, they have been bowled out inside 50 overs in 7 matches and that is an aspect they need to work on.

iconBangladesh Team News

Bangladesh were in freefall, stuck at 139/6 when Imrul Kayes notched up a career best 144 to power them to 271. Mohammad Saifuddin also contributed but the hosts will want to see the likes of Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah step up.

This is the series where Fazle Mahmud and Mohammad Mithun can stake their claim in the Starting XI and they will need to put on a better show with the bat. The bowlers did a commendable job defending the total but they should be taking more wickets.

iconZimbabwe Team News

The Zimbabwean bowling had done exceedingly well in the first 40 overs and it was only in the end that Bangladesh powered themselves to a fighting total. Kyle Jarvis and Tendai Chatara picked up 7 wickets between them but they couldn’t prevent the late onslaught which cost them the match.

Except for a fighting fifty by Sean Williams, none of the Zimbabwean batsmen built on their starts and that will be an area that needs rapid improvement. Forget chasing a total, lasting 50 overs is their immediate priority.

Pitch Conditions

 

Sunny skies expected in Chittagong which will make it a batting paradise for both teams. A bit of turn and carry is also expected which means there will be something for the bowlers as well. But a first innings score of 300+ is very achievable at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss will elect to bat first.

Our Match Prediction

Bangladesh to win this match and seal the series 2-0.
