Zimbabwe will host Bangladesh for a three-match ODI series after thrashing them for the first time in a T20I series. Following a 2-1 victory in the T20I series, Zimbabwe is more confident than ever that they can repeat their triumphs and claim their first ODI series victory against foreign opponents in 16 years.
Most of the day will be sunny. The pitch benefits batters and has previously produced high totals. At Harare, bowlers had an extremely difficult time finding bounce. Zimbabwe recorded the lowest run score of 35 on this field. Teams have successfully chased the target 82 times in 162 ODIs, while successfully defending the target 77 times. Teams have chased the goals four times in the last five games. Consequently, the team who won the toss should bowl first.
Recently, Zimbabwe’s performance in one-day international cricket has been below average. In a three-match series, they lost against Afghanistan 3-0. For more than a year, Zimbabwe has been sustained by its middle order. In the ODI series against Afghanistan and the current T20I series against Bangladesh, Raza led Zimbabwe in runs scored. Zimbabwe’s speed assault will be led by Tendai Chatara and Blessing Muzarbani along with Tanaka Chivanga.
Recently, Bangladesh has had outstanding ODI cricket performance. In a recent three-match series, they defeated South Africa 2-1 and the West Indies 3-0. Mustafizur Rahman, Bangladesh’s strike bowler, is one of the players to watch out for as he is currently on fire. At the top of the order for Bangladesh, Litton Das is a prolific run scorer. He gets his team off to a fast start and attacks the opposing bowlers.
