ZIM vs BAN Only Test: Possible Playing 11 of Bangladesh


BAN Playing 11: Bangladesh will face hosts Zimbabwe in the only Test match to be played here at Harare. Bangladesh are having a tough time in the game’s longest format. Their ODI performance has improved a lot but in Tests, they are still to prove a point. Bangladesh last played a Test against Zimbabwe in 2020, where they won by an innings and 106 runs. Both teams are locked at 7-7 in the 17 Tests played between these teams so far. It is a great chance for the visitors to get an overseas win under their belt against a low-fancied opposition.

Team News

  • Opener Tamim Iqbal is doubtful as he is yet to recover fully from his knee injury.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim is likely to be available as he has completed his rehab well.
  • Allrounder Shakib Al Hasan returns to the squad after missing the last Test series against Sri Lanka because of his IPL commitments.

If Tamim Iqbal isn’t fit to play, Bangladesh will be relatively inexperienced at the top. They have experienced campaigners in the middle order with Mominul, Mushfiqur and Shakib. Shakib’s return is a big positive as he brings the much needed balance to this side. Taskin Ahmed will be a big threat in the bowling department as he bowled excellently in the SL series recently.
