The Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh first T20 scorecard can be found HERE and ball-by-ball commentary HERE. The T20 series between the two sides would be vital for their preparations for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup later this year.
Zimbabwe recently punched their ticket to Australia by winning the T20 World Cup Qualifier B tournament by beating Papua New Guinea in the semifinal clash earlier this month. In the final, Zimbabwe defeated Netherlands and now hope for a winning start.
On the other hand, Bangladesh ended their West Indies with a 3-0 ODI series win earlier this month. Bangladesh had lost the T20 series against West Indies. Against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh will be led by new captain Nurul Hasan after Bangladesh Cricket Board decided to give Mahmudullah rest.
Mahmudullah has been struggling with form too. According to reports, premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is likely to be appointed to be Bangladesh captain in the T20 World Cup later this year in Australia.
Bangladesh have used ten different opening pairs in their last 29 T20s. Mustafizur Rahman's 66 matches makes him the most experienced T20 player among the two teams.
Bangladesh have met Zimbabwe 16 times in T20s winning 11 of them. Zimbabwe won five games.
