Bangladesh, who are on a tour of Zimbabwe after six years, will take to the field today (July 18) to play the first of a three-match ODI series. As part of the World Cup Super League, Bangladesh will want to take full advantage of this series. However, Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal says the task will not be easy as the statistics speak for the hosts in their own conditions.
The last 16 matches between the two teams were won by Bangladesh, but all the matches were played on Bangladeshi soil. The last time Zimbabwe won was 6 years ago. However, taking into account their condition, Bangladesh has lost the last two matches on Zimbabwean soil.
Zimbabwe has won 28 out of Bangladesh’s 46 wins in 65 matches between the two teams. The hosts have won 15 of 26 matches on Zimbabwean soil. Zimbabwe has lost 9 of the last 10 ODIs. The matches were against Pakistan, Bangladesh, Ireland, and the Netherlands. The only win came in their last ODI against Pakistan last year.
All in all, the difference between 2013 Zimbabwe and current Zimbabwe is clear. Only time will tell how much he will be able to fight in front of Bangladesh at home. However, Bangladesh will definitely want to win all the matches of the series and collect the full 30 points.
After losing all three ODIs of the New Zealand tour, they also lost a match against Sri Lanka at home. Bangladesh got only 20 points in 6 matches. This Zimbabwe tour is an opportunity to make up for that.
And the first match of that journey is so important. Captain Tamim Iqbal also said in a press conference yesterday that the goal is to make a good start. The left-arm batsman says that if it weren’t for the World Cup Super League match, he would have walked the path of observation or observation against Zimbabwe. As a result, it is understood that Bangladesh will field their best team.
Although he wants to come down with the best team, Tamim is not getting it. Mushfiqur Rahim has returned to the country due to family reasons. Mustafizur Rahman is uncertain in the first ODI due to injury in the preparation match. Meanwhile, pacer Rubel Hossain had to leave Dhaka yesterday due to visa complications, it is very certain that he will not be available at least in the first match. Tamim himself will somehow manage the knee injury, where he did not play in the Test with this injury.
The captain, however, is satisfied with the rest of the squad, saying, ‘We can’t always play with a full-strength team. And we have to accept the situation. Look at Mushfiqur’s situation, or Mustafiz’s injury – these are out of control. That is why 16-18 people were kept in the squad. Everyone in the squad is qualified. ‘
From his previous experience, Tamim says, you have to be careful if you bat first on the wicket of Harare, ‘I played 2-3 series in Zimbabwe but 6-7 years ago. The match will start at 9.30 am, so the bowlers will get an advantage at the beginning. Especially in the first hour. It will be challenging if we bat first. If you bat first, you have to be careful. If you bowl first, you have to use this one hour. ‘
In the points list of the World Cup Super League, Bangladesh is at number two with 5 wins in 9 matches and 50 points. The Zimbabwe tour could be a platform to bridge the gap with that behind. Tamim did not reveal who will be seen at number four as Mushfiqur is not there. At number four can be seen Liton Das or Mohammad Mithun. In that case, Naeem Sheikh can also be seen as Tamim’s partner in the opening. At least that is what the equation of the preparation match says.
All-rounders Mohammad Saifuddin and Mehedi Hasan Miraj have been replaced in the XI. Shariful Islam may get a chance as Mustafiz is not there, Taskin Ahmed will be another fast bowler. Nurul Hasan Sohan can also get an opportunity to increase the batting depth.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe announced their squad five hours after Tamim’s press conference yesterday. Although Sharon Williams and Craig Irwin were negative at the end of the isolation, Zimbabwe Cricket wanted to assess their fitness and health status before being included in the squad.
That is why the team was announced without these two senior cricketers. If the family members are corona positive, they are sent to isolation before the test series. Brendon Taylor will lead Zimbabwe. Several cricketers have returned to the squad after recovering from injuries, and there are also cricketers who have found a place after a long break. There are three undefeated cricketers in the 18-member squad.
Zimbabwe has won the last three matches against Bangladesh in Harare, albeit in 2011. After a decade, Bangladesh-Zimbabwe will face each other again in an ODI at Harare Sports Club. Where Bangladesh will enter the field as a clear favorite even in the opponent’s condition. Now it’s time to see how much power Tamim can hold in a field cricket.
