Harare Sports Club T20 records: Harare will be hosting an international match after one and a half months today.
The first T20I of Bangladesh’s tour of Zimbabwe 2022 will be played in Harare today. In fact, Harare Sports Club will be hosting Bangladesh for all the six white-ball matches of this tour in the next 12 days.
Having hosted Afghanistan across white-ball formats as recent as last month, Harare will be hosting an international match after one and a half months.
Speaking particularly of T20Is, it will be the 33rd match to be played at this venue on a Saturday afternoon. Zimbabwe, who’ve played 29 T20Is here over the years, have won just four and lost 25 to have an abysmal venue record. Meanwhile, Bangladesh had won two and lost one out of their three Harare T20Is last year.
