The first ODI between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh is all set to be played at Harare Sports Club in Harare on July 16. This will mark the first bilateral ODI series between these two sides in Zimbabwe since 2013. 

Speaking of bilateral series between these two teams, the last one was played in Bangladesh right before the pandemic began. In that series, Liton Das and Tamim Iqbal had managed to blow away the Zimbabwean team, scoring two centuries each. 

Iqbal and Das may be able to repeat that feat and have a great chance of sealing the series as the visitors are high on confidence after winning the one-off Test by a margin of 220 runs. 

With these three ODIs in place, Zimbabwe would hope to give a scare or two to Bangladesh. However, considering how Bangladesh has gone about their business during the ODI Super League so far, it is needless to say that Tamim Iqbal and co. will start as favorites. 

Playing combination for ZIM vs BAN

Zimbabwe

Predicted XI

Tinashe Kumunhukamwe, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Brendan Taylor (C), Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, Regis Chakabva (WK), Wellington Masakadza/Luke Jongwe, Blessing Muzarabani, Donald Tiripano, Richard Ngarava

Bangladesh

Mushfiqur Rahim has left the country and has gone back home, due to personal reasons. This has now created a problem for the Bangladesh middle-order and definitely, the pressure will be on the senior players to deliver. There is an injury scare around Mushtafizur Rahman as well. He has suffered an injury and will most likely miss the first ODI.  

Predicted XI

Tamim Iqbal (C), Liton Das (WK), Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Rubel Hossain/Mustafizur Rahman

Bench: Taijul Islam, Nayeem Hasan, Abu Jayed, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Nurul Hasan, Mohammad Naim
