Zimbabwe is hosting a full-fledged tour after a long time in their home soil and will be delighted to play against Bangladesh. They are little less privileged in test arena as they play very less matches. But 2021 is a fruitful year as they are playing their 5th Test which is the number of matches they played in last 3 years. Bangladesh on the other hand are in tier 1 in Test matches and have a sure shot of 12 Test matches in the WTC 2021-23 cycle. But, they have been struggling to find form and momentum in the Test format for quite a long time. Both teams will take this match as a great opportunity to showcase their skills in Test matches.

Zimbabwe Preview

Sean Williams returns to lead the side after missing the last series. Senior Players Craig Ervine, Brendon Taylor, and Regis Chakabva are expected to play big knocks to help their post a good total. Kevin Kasuza might have a new partner at the top with Gumbie being the fore-runner. 

Blessing Muzurbani and Donald Tiripano will lead their pace attack with the likes of Tendai Chatara and Richard Ngarava playing alongside them as a four-prolonged pace attack. Skipper Sean Williams will be their premier spinner in this match with an outside chance of Tendai Chisoro to feature in the playing XI.

Top players to bet on:

Blessing Muzurbani – Muzurbani has been exceptional in his Test career troubling the batsmen with his pace and bounce and has claimed 15 wickets in 4 matches this year. He will look to continue his good form with the ball in this match too.

Sean Williams – Williams has scores of 105, 141* & 8 in the last three innings he batted.  He will also be expected to lead their spin attack in the absence of Sikander Raza to provide crucial breakthroughs.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Regis Chakabva (wk), Craig Ervine, Sean Williams (c), Brendon Taylor, Kevin Kasuza, Blessing Muzurbani, Donald Tiripano, Richard Ngarava, Tendai Chatara, Victor Nyachi, Joylord Gumbie

Zimbabwe Actual Playing XI:

Richard Ngarava, Dion Myers, Victor Nyauchi, Roy Kaia, Milton Shumba, Regis Chakabva, Takudzwanashe Kaitano, Blessing Muzarabani, BRM Taylor, Donald Tiripano, T Maruma

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh will be having a hard time piking their XI. Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Najmul Shanto, and Mominul Haque are expected in slot in alongside the all-rounder duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan. Liton Das might be their first choice skipper and they must find a way to accommodate Saif Hussain at the top.

Taskin Ahmed and Abu Jayed will their new ball bowlers and their might be toss-up between Shoriful Hossain and Ebadat Hossain for the third seamer`s slot. Shoriful might get a nod ahead owing to his left-arm variety. Shakib and Mehdi will partner alongside Taijul Islam to form a strong trio of spin attack.

Top players to bet on:

Tamim Iqbal – Tamim had scores of 90, 74, 94, & 28 in the 2 Test matches he played against Sri Lanka recently. We expect him to make a big three figure score in this match after missing out in the last series multiple times.   

Taskin Ahmed – Taskin was the pick of the bowler’s last series with 8 wickets in 2 matches in tough bowling conditions. He will be eager to bowl on surfaces conductive to pace here.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Najmul Shanto,  Mominul Haque (C), Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Liton Das/Saif Hussain, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Jayed, Shoriful Islam, Taijul Islam

Weather Conditions

Bulawayo will have a hot and humid climate on all the match days. No rain or weather interruptions are expected in this match.

Venue Details

Queen`s Oval is one of bowling friendly pitches and the pitch is expected to aid both spinners and pacers. And the pitch might deteriote faster as the match progresses. We expect the scores to be around 300-350 runs in the first 2 innings.

Toss: To Bat

Teams will bat first on this track as the pitch will undergo wear and tear and will be tough to bat in the fourth innings.

Zimbabwe has some experienced players in the middle order but they lack continuity and have posted big runs rarely. Bangladesh on the other hand have a strong batting line-up with depth till No. 8.  Bangladesh has a good mix of pace and spin bowlers while Zimbabwe are short of quality in spin attack barring their skipper. Overall, Bangladesh have a good batting and bowling attack when compared to Zimbabwe. We expect Bangladesh to win this Test match.

Bangladesh will win the match & the series 1-0
