Zimbabwe Tour of Bangladesh, 2018
Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe, 2nd ODI Preview
After a hard fought 28 runs win in the first ODI, Bangladesh will host Zimbabwe at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong in the second ODI on Wednesday noon. The hosts lead the 3-match series by 1-0 and would be eyeing to seal it with another win in tomorrow’s game. The 3 matches ODI series will be followed by 2 Tests starting from November 03 and November 11.
After winning the toss in the first ODI, Bangladesh opted to bat first. The decision to bat first was under scanner when Bangladesh lost two crucial wickets in a single over at just 16 (Liton Das) and 17(Fazle Mahmud) runs on the board. They lost their third wicket at 66 when Mushfiqur Rahim returned to the pavilion after scoring 15 of 20 deliveries. However, Imrul Kayes (144 of 140) made sure to stick to one end and helped the team post a defendable target of 272 runs with the help of a crucial fifty coming through the bat of Mohammad Saifuddin (50 of 69) in the lower middle order.
Coming to chase, Zimbabwe had a decent start at both the openers collected 48 runs for the first wicket. But after that, half of the team was back to pavilion at mere 100 runs on the board and Bangladesh was cruising towards an easy win. In 25.1 over Zimbabwe were 100-5 when Sean Williams, Peter Moor and Kyle Jarvis, in the end, took charge with the bat and helped the side reach 243-9 in 50 over, falling short of 28 runs.
Zimbabwe would be hoping to cross the line this time when they face Bangladesh tomorrow. It is a must-win game for the visitors if they wish to keep themselves alive in the series.
