ABOUT THE MATCH

Bangladesh is coming into this tri-series having suffered a humiliating 224-run defeat against Afghanistan in a one-off test match at Chattogram. Prior to that, they had toured Sri Lanka in the month of July for a three-match one-day international series.

Bangladesh had a torrid time on that tour where they were humbled in each of the three matches. Zimbabwe’s previous international assignment came in Ireland where they played three ODIs and as many T20Is against the hosts.

TOSS PREDICTION

And since the pitch is expected to remain good for batting throughout the duration of the game, the team that wins the toss here will probably prefer to chase.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS

A lot of rain has been forecast for the entire week in Dhaka. There is a strong chance of heavy downpours accompanied by thunderstorms on Friday evening and so we could have a shortened game if there is any play at all. Temperature is expected to be around 26 degrees Celsius and humidity close to 86%.

150 is the average first innings score at this ground in T20 internationals. Spinners are likely to perform better in these conditions than fast bowlers.

  • Bangladesh managed to win only five out of the sixteen T20Is they played last year. In the Nidahas Twenty20 Tri-Series held in Sri Lanka, they defeated the hosts in both their encounters against them but lost to India in the final.

PROBABLE WINNING TEAM:

Bangladesh is a pretty strong team with quite a few match-winners in their ranks and it will be very tough for Zimbabwe to beat them in their own conditions.
