Bangladesh suffered a massive defeat against Afghanistan in a Test match just a mere few days ago. It is difficult to comprehend how the morale of the squad must be at the moment. Similarly, Zimbabwe are battling their own plethora of problems and trying to find a way out of it.
59% chances of scattered thunderstorms with the temperature ranging around mid 20s is expected during the course of the game.
A flat track with some assistance to the slower bowlers in the later stages of the game could be dished out for this match.
Predicted Playing XI:
Soumya Sarkar and Shakib Al Hasan will be tasked upon providing the firepower upfront whilst Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah will be vital later on. Mohammad Saifuddin’s yorkers in the death overs could turn out to be be a decisive factor in the eventual outcome of this encounter.
Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan (C), Mushfiqur Rahim, Afif Hossain, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam
Hamilton Masakadza and Brendan Taylor will be the key figures in the batting department whilst Sean Williams and Kyle Jarvis could have a considerable impact upon the game as well.
