Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka, 13th September at 06:00 PM IST
Bangladesh will be hosting Afghanistan and Zimbabwe for a T20 Tri-series which kick-starts from 13th September at the Shere Bangla Stadium in Dhaka. The first match of the series will be played between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
Bangladesh's last international assignment came against Afghanistan recently when they lost the only Test of the series by 224 runs. Now, with a change in the format, they would be looking for a change in fortune for sure.
As far as Zimbabwe are concerned, they are coming out of a suspension which was imposed on them in July and this will be their first assignment after the halt. However, they are full-on confidence after registering a victory in the practice game against Bangladesh Cricket Board XI by 7 wickets courtesy a valiant batting effort from Brendan Taylor and Maruma who got scores of unbeaten 57 and 46 respectively.
This win will definitely give them confidence going forward in this series and perform well.
