Bangladesh are set to travel to Zimbabwe for three T20Is and as many ODIs, starting on July 30 in Harare. The momentum is high with the Asian team as they enter this series after beating West Indies by 3-0 in the ODI series. Although they lost the Test and T20I series against the Caribbean side, their dominating display in the ODIs set them in the right direction. On the other hand, Zimbabwe have qualified for the upcoming 2022 T20 World Cup after beating Papua New Guinea in the qualifiers semi-final clash. They beat the Netherlands, another qualified side, in the finals of the qualifier on July 17.
Zimbabwe lost their previous bilateral series against Afghanistan last month. Zimbabwe lost all six matches (three T20Is and three ODIs) against Afghanistan at home. Hence, not many are backing them to trouble Bangladesh. The African team will be focusing to find some rhythm and momentum on this tour as they are scheduled to host India in a three-match ODI series at home later in August. They will then travel to Australia to play the same number of 50-over fixtures.
Bangladesh management made a big change to their T20I squad for this upcoming tour. Wicketkeeper-batter Nurul Hasan has been named as stand-in skipper in place of rested Mahmudullah, who is unlikely to regain the captaincy duties in the future. According to various reports, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is planning to appoint star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan as the next captain to lead the side in the shortest format of the game. The veteran opening batter Tamim Iqbal is leading the ODI squad for this tour as Shakib opted to rest.
