The burning questions ahead of Bangladesh’s Zimbabwe tour

The six matches in both white ball formats provide invaluable match training with global events just around the corner.

While the T20I series provides vital preparation for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup later this year, teams must stay sharp in the longer white ball format with a Cricket World Cup in India taking place. next year.

Thanks to TSM, the Bangladesh and India Zimbabwe tours will be available on ICC.tv for just $1.99 each. Learn more below.

Who’s ready to kick off their T20 World Cup preparations for Australia 2022?

Buoyed by their qualification for the T20 World Cup through their home qualifier, there is certainly a spring in the way of the Zimbabwean side under new coach Dave Houghton.

Cheering on an aggressive and enterprising brand of cricket, Craig Ervine’s side look full of confidence and ready to take on anyone.

Ervine, Sean Williams and Wessley Madhevere at the top of the order are looking to go strong, with Sikandar Raza, freshly awarded Player of the Tournament in Qualifier B, more than reliable in the middle order.

‘It’s a dream come true’ – Zimbabwe qualify for 2022 T20 World Cup

On the Bangladesh side, the players have the possibility of taking part in the tournament from November, four of the most experienced men not being on the trip.

Tamim Iqbal confirmed his retirement from T20I earlier this month, while Shakib Al Hasan is taking a break from cricket. Meanwhile, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah rested.

Shakib looks likely to take the reins when he returns to the shorter format, although Nurul Hasan is auditioning on the tour for long-term captaincy roles. Munim Shahriar, Anamul Haque, Najmul Hossain Shanto and Parvez Hossain Emon have the chance to raise their hands for hitters in October.

What can teams take away from the ODI series ahead of a big 2023?

While the three ODIs between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe are out of the Super League and out of 2023 qualification, the matches should provide both teams with a good indication of where they need to be.

The hosts host India soon after in Super League fixtures, and the 12th-placed side need a number of things to avoid featured in a qualifying tournament for the Cricket World Cup on home soil next year.

For all their T20I shortcomings, 50+ cricket seems to be Bangladesh’s forte.

The Tigers have won 10 of their last 12 ODI cricket outings, including a recent Super League clean sweep against West Indies.

No Blessing for Zimbabwe: Who Intervenes?

Zimbabwe will miss the services of fast bowlers Blessing Muzarabani and Tendai Chatara for the upcoming three-game T20I series against Bangladesh at home.

Victor Nyauchi and Tanaka Chivanga were brought into the fold to replace the pair, with the team apart from the two changes being the same team that knocked out the T20 World Cup B qualifier.

Can Bangladesh find the T20 formula?

Despite all their success in ODI cricket, the Tigers have largely failed to emulate the form in the T20I format.

Having won only one of five T20Is so far in 2022, Bangladesh is running out of time to find the right combination and avoid the same fate experienced in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

Summary of the match: Bangladesh – Oman

After a first defeat against Scotland, Bangladesh had to qualify for the Super 12 the hard way, before a poor performance in Group A apart from a brilliant moment or two.

The series in Zimbabwe therefore offers a golden chance for the team to find a rhythm before Australia in October.
