ZIM Playing 11: Zimbabwe will face Bangladesh in the only Test to be played between these teams here at Harare. The last time these sides faced in a Test match was in 2020 in Bangladesh. Bangladesh thrashed Zimbabwe by an innings and 106 runs. But since the match is in Zimbabwe this time, expect Bangladesh to get a tough fight here. In 17 Tests played between these teams, both have won 7 matches each while 3 matches have ended in a draw. Bangladesh are 9th while Zimbabwe are 10th in the ICC Test Rankings.

With senior players like Ervine and captain Sean Williams unavailable, the onus will be on stand-in captain Brendan Taylor to lead the team from the front. Dion Myers was impressive in the series against South Africa A and he could be in line for a debut here. The hosts are likely to play four fast bowlers. Muzarabani will be the biggest threat for Bangladesh as he can trouble them with his pace and height.
