ZIM vs BAN Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first ZIM vs BAN ODI.
The first ODI of the ongoing Bangladesh’s tour of Zimbabwe is all set to be played at the Harare Sports Club tomorrow. It will be the first time in eight years that Bangladesh will be playing a bilateral ODI series in Zimbabwe.
The last time it had happened was in 2013 when Zimbabwe had defeated Bangladesh 2-1 in Bulawayo. As far as their last ODI encounter in Harare is concerned, it dates back to a decade ago when these two teams had played the last ODI of a five-match series.
Bangladesh, who managed to register a clinical 220-run victory in the one-off Test, would be looking to carry forward their winning momentum against the home team. Having said that, they will be without veteran wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim in this series. Additionally, there is uncertainty over pacer Mustafizur Rahman’s participation in the first ODI.

The last time when Zimbabwe and Bangladesh had locked horns in an ODI was during Zimbabwe’s tour of Bangladesh right before the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic last year.
After the then Zimbabwe captain Sean Williams won the toss and invited the hosts in to bat, Bangladesh opening batsmen Tamim Iqbal (128*) and Liton Das (176) had registered a record-breaking 292-run opening stand, their highest-ever ODI partnership, as Bangladesh won the 43-over contest by a mammoth 123 runs.
