Upcoming Bangladesh Tour of Zimbabwe: Squads, Fixtures, and Venues – All you need to know

The upcoming Bangladesh tour of Zimbabwe in July 2021 comprises one Five Day Test Match, three One Day Internationals (ODIs), and three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) matches. The last tour of Bangladesh to Zimbabwe was in April and May 2013.

Zimbabwe’s Sports and Recreation Commission has permitted the tournament to go ahead despite sporting activity suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bangladesh cricket team arrived in Zimbabwe on Jun 30 2021, and all the matches will be played in a bio-secure environment at the Harare Sports Club behind closed doors.

The hosts are preparing well as they know Bangladesh has always been a difficult team to win against. Zimbabwe has to get out of its comfort zone of playing on the home ground and curtail the young Bangladeshi batsmen from scoring a big total. The biggest surprise of the Bangladesh squad is the inclusion of Shamim Hossain in the T20 squad. The rest of the squad comprises the expected names that have been selected for the tour. Rubel Hossain, Al Amin Hossain, and Hasan Mahmud are missing from this T20I squad who played in the last series against New Zealand.
The upcoming cricket series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will feature all three formats of the game. Starting with a test match, followed by three ODIs and as many T20Is in the month-long tour.
