BAN Vs ZIM Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: After sweeping the ODI series, Bangladesh look set to dole out the same treatment to Zimbabwe today as well.
This has been a hard and gruelling last one month for Zimbabwe. After losing to Sri Lanka in the test series, the side faltered in white ball cricket as well with the team losing the ODI series to Bangladesh.
After being routed 3-0 in the ODI series, Zimbabwe need things to change and change fast for them as they strike to turn things around come the T20 series. However, their inadequacies when playing in Asian conditions were brought to the fore once again with the outfit being putdown by 48 runs in the series opener.
Allowing Bangladesh to clean them apart with the bat once again, the Africans went onto concede a colossal 200 runs before eventually faltering infront of spin to fold out their pursuit of the target of 152. Back for the second and culminating tie of the series today, Zimbabwe will be looking to make one late surge towards salvation with a win needed to see them restore parity in the series.
An inability to play spin coupled with a failure to contain runs on Asian conditions are rendered Zimbabwe redundant this series. They have completely failed to address these plights to be embroiled in a tiff and will be put down by these predicaments once again to lose the series 2-0 today.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The previous encounter played over here showed that the surface is a perfect one for the batters with batting first being the norm here. Being the second tie in the space of as many days, the surface will take no time in opening up as play progresses on the day to see the spinners come into full effect and get immense rotations and turn from the surface.
