ZIM vs BAN T20 series: Bangladesh eyes series win over Zimbabwe ahead of T20 World Cup qualifiers- Bangladesh will look to head into the upcoming T20 World Cup qualifiers in Oman with yet another thumping series win over Zimbabwe. Series favorites Bangladesh would look to whitewash the hosts’ Zimbabwe in the T20 series. The matches will be played on July 22, 23, and 25. The visitors can experiment with their playing XI ahead of the T20 World Cup qualifiers where they will meet Scotland, Papua New Guinea, and Oman. The likes of Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mohammad Saifuddin are expected to do continue their dominant run against Zimbabwe in the shortest format of the game.
However, Bangladesh ODI Captain Tamim Iqbal will miss the three-match Twenty20 series against Zimbabwe starting Thursday as he will return home to begin a rehabilitation program for a right knee ligament injury. Tamim has been suffering from knee pain for the past weeks.
Zimbabwe, on the other hand, has nothing to lose as they will not compete in the upcoming T20 World Cup. But they need to play quality cricket to ensure they do not lose competitiveness on the cricket field. They have failed to win a T20 match in last couple of years. Their last victory came in October 2019 against Singapore.
