BAN Vs ZIM Dream11 Team, Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Laggard Zimbabwe strive to restore lost pride after being dismissed calamitously in the series opener.
Bundled out in the test match between the two sides, when Zimbabwe made a foray into the fray of the three match ODI series, the side looked to punch above their weight in white ball cricket. Unfortunately for them, things failed to change in the series opener with the side toyed around with to be handed over a contentious 169 run defeat on the day.
The result was one which perfectly embodied why Zimbabwe have been on a gradual and unstoppable decline in the cricketing arena for the last couple of years now. It was a shambolic showing from them, one which saw them dominated and outplayed in every department of the game with Bangladesh walking all over them.
Coming out to chase 321, the side completely faltered under the pressure of a massive run chase to lose wickets at regular intervals and fold out this run chase at a mere 152. Now as they step out for the second tie today, the side are staring at a staunch challenge to restore parity in the series, one a lack of fight and character will prove extremely tricky to pull off.
BAN Vs ZIM Probable Winner
Bangladesh were all over Zimbabwe in the first ODI and much of the same should be on display today as well. This will be a canter for Bangladesh with a listless Zimbabwe side failing to show the stomach of a fight to lose control of the series today.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The previous encounter perfectly alluded to what kind of a surface we will be revelled in for today’s encounter. Munch of the same conditions will emanate today as well with the track being one to bat first on before the surface starts opening up and showing signs of cracks for the spinners to exploit.

BAN Vs ZIM Dream11 Batsmen
Opener Iqbal scored 26 runs for Bangladesh in the same encounter but what was more important were the 43 balls he spent in the middle. They alluded towards his ability to stick around and pile on the runs to see him become our selection from the side for this one along with Mohammad.
From Zimbabwe meanwhile we’ll be reposing faith in the services of Brandon Taylor for the contest. He failed abjectly in the series opener but is someone quick to correct his mistakes and being one of the oldest names of the country’s side, his acumen will come to the fore for them today.
BAN Vs ZIM Dream11 All-Rounders
We begin with our partnership from Zimbabwe for today’s upcoming contest ith both Sean Williams and Sikander Raza being rolled into our outfit. The two make for formidable viewing, a partnership which has persistently provided a shot into the arm into the side’s batting and bowling orders owing to the duo’s expansive skill set.
Zimbabwe’s top scorer in the previous encounter with 35 runs in 44 balls, Wesley Madhevere is also being brought into our unit for this encounter.
From Bangladesh elsewhere we’ll be beginning with the selection of Mohammed Saifuddin for the encounter. He not only disrupted Zimbabwe’s run chase with three wickets in his kitty but provided the 28 runs in 15 balls in the death overs as well for his side.
BAN Vs ZIM Dream11 Bowling Order
Our entre bowling unit comprises of selections from Bangladesh after the side ended up sending Zimbabwe back to the pavilion for a mere 152 runs. Zimbabwe’s vulnerabilities on getting under deliveries and squaring off infront of a vicious bowling unit were clearly apparent and with this encounter being contested on the same track, their qualms should see them collapse once again.
What was especially agonising to see was an inability of knowhow by them infront of the spinners to see us indulge in the duo of Mehidy Hasan-Miraz and Taijul Islam. Captain Mashrafe Mortaza got two wickets as well in that encounter to see him complete our three man unit from the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Bangladesh Bat First: Given the fact that Bangladesh were allowed to score over 300 the last time around, Rahim will be our captain while Saifuddin is the vice-captain.
Zimbabwe Bat First: Williams is our unit’s captain while Mehidy is the vice-captain.
