ZIM vs BAN Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for ZIM vs BAN one-off Test.
The first Test between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh will kick-start the imminent Bangladesh’s tour of Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club tomorrow.
Zimbabwe, who were already the weaker side on paper, have been further handed two massive blows on the eve of the match as batsmen Sean Williams and Craig Ervine have been ruled out of this match after them coming on contact with a COVID-19 positive patient.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, have a well knit unit for the one-off match despite uncertainty over opening batsman Tamim Iqbal’s availability due to an injury.
