Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

Fazle Mahmud failed to get off the mark in his debut game but he will probably be given another chance to prove his mettle. Bangladesh are coming off a convincing win and so they may not want to tinker with the winning combination. Expect the hosts to come up with an unchanged line-up.

BAN Key Players

Imrul Kayes seems to be going through a good phase. The opener had cracked an unbeaten 72 in an Asia Cup game against Afghanistan and blitzed 144 in the last game at Dhaka. While he will be holding the key to Bangladesh’s batting, the team will also have strong expectations from Mohammad Mithun and Mushfiqur Rahim who has a couple of ODI half-centuries at this ground. Mehidy Hasan played a vital role in his side’s win last time. The offspinner finished with the best bowling figures of 10-0-46-3 and he is likely to trouble the Zimbabwean batsmen once again. Nazmul Islam bagged two wickets and he too is expected to bowl well here. Mashrafe Mortaza has 17 wickets from 9 ODIs at this ground and he will be backed by his team to land a few early blows on the tourists.

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

Zimbabwe, despite losing the first ODI, are unlikely to make changes to their side for the second game. Cephas Zhuwao batted well at Dhaka and he will continue to open the batting with skipper Hamilton Masakadza. None of the Zimbabwean players were reported to be injured at the time of writing.

ZIM Key Players

Zimbabwe rely largely on the likes of Hamilton Masakadza, Brendan Taylor, Craig Ervine and Sean Williams when it comes to batting. Williams struck a fifty in the first ODI and the team will want him to produce another good performance in this must-win encounter. Taylor and Masakadza are among Zimbabwe’s leading run-getters in this format. The former has a hundred and a fifty at this ground and one can expect him to make a notable contribution here. With the ball, the onus will be on Tendai Chatara and Kyle Jarvis to take early wickets and apply pressure on the hosts. The two shared seven wickets between them at Dhaka and it will be crucial for Zimbabwe that they have a good outing on Wednesday. Chatara is the more experienced of the two and he is more likely to finish with the best figures in this match.
