zim vs ban Match Prediction & Analysis

Host Zimbabwe will be desperate to level the T20I series when they face Bangladesh in 2nd match of ODI series at Harare on Sunday.

In the absence of Sean Williams, Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza, Zimbabwe clearly struggled to put up a strong fight with the bat. The home side will have to deliver something special with the bat to compete with Bangladesh in this fixture.

On the other hand, Captain Tamim Iqbal will be pleased with his side’s decent performance with bat and ball. With this result, Bangladesh go 1-0 up in the three-match ODI series. The visitors will be looking to continue their winning streak in this contest.

Teams Preview

Zimbabwe Preview

The side clearly lacked experience in the batting department in the opening game of the one-day series. The team management will be hoping that experienced players like Brendan Taylor and Regis Chakabva can deliver notable scores.

Chasing 277 runs for victory, the openers Wesley Madhevere and Tadiwanashe Marumani perished for low scores to see Zimbabwe get off to a poor start.

Captain Brendan Taylor and Dion Myers provided a little hope with 36-run partnership. Myers showed decent form but perished after scoring 18 runs off 24 balls.

For Zimbabwe, wicket-keeper Regis Chakabva produced a decent half-century in a losing cause. He struck four fours and two sixes in his innings. Besides Chakabva, Captain Brendan Taylor failed to capitalize on his good start and departed after scoring 24 runs off 31 balls.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Wesley Madhevere, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Brendan Taylor (c), Dion Myers, Timycen Maruma, Regis Chakabva (wk), Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava
