Match Preview

After losing the only-Test played before the ODI series, and also losing the first of the 3-ODI series, Zimbabwe desperately needs a win here to save the series. They haven’t defeated Bangladesh since May 2013, and in the first ODI, they received their 11th consecutive loss against Bangladesh. The last time when Zimbabwe visited Bangladesh, the series result was in favor of Bangladesh (3-0). They need to come out of the shell and face Bangladesh batsmen and bowlers with more courage.

Zimbabwe bowling unit surely needs to be more effective as after securing the first-ODI, confident hosts would look to wrap up the ODI series in this game.

Teams Preview

Bangladesh

In the first ODI, Liton Das scored 126 runs off 105 balls that included 13 fours and a couple of sixes. Mohammad Mithun’s 41-balls half-century and Mohammad Saifuddin’s cameo of 15-balls 28 with 3 sixes powered the team to post 321 runs batting first. Though, Tamim Iqbal’s slow 24 off 43 balls has caught the attention of the coach Neil McKenzie, who recommended him to have at least two more boundaries in the powerplay. The bowlers did expectedly well to bowl out the visitors for 152. Mohammad Saifuddin took 3 wickets, while Mehidy Hasan and Mashrafe Mortaza claimed two each.

Mushfiqur Rahim is the top scorer for Bangladesh (420 runs in the last 9 innings, average 60.00) followed by Liton Das (310 runs in the last 6 ODI innings). Mustafizur Rahman leads the bowling attack with 21 wickets in the last 8 matches while Mohammad Saifuddin has taken 10 wickets in the last 5 matches.

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe did not look well prepared as they faced daunting Bangladesh in the first ODI match. While their bowlers were completely ineffective against Das, Mahmudullah and Mohammad Mithun, Mpofu received 3 sixes from Saifuddin in the 50th over, as he conceded 22 in the final over. Mpofu’s final tally was 2-for-68, while Mumba, Madhevere, Tiripano, and Mutombodzi took 1 wicket each. Sikandar Raza though wicket-less, was the most economical among the bowlers. Chasing 322, Zimbabwe never looks in control and their problem started right in the second over when Saifuddin removed Kamunhukamwe. They scored just 28 in the first 10 overs and lost 3 wickets. Except for Madhevere (35 runs off 44 balls – five boundaries), no Zimbabwe batsmen showed any intent. Eventually, they were bowled out for just 152, giving the hosts the biggest ODI win by the margin of 169 runs.

Sean Williams is the top run-scorer for Zimbabwe (322 runs in the last 9 games) followed by Craig Ervine (395 runs in the last 9 games). Sean Williams also leads the bowling department with 11 wickets in the last 9 ODIs while Donald Tiripano has taken 9 wickets in the last 8 matches.
