Bangladesh vs. Zimbabwe 1st Test Match
The first test match between Bangladesh and Zimbbabwe is going to get under way from tomorrow in Harare. This is the second time Bangladesh is touring Zimbabwe. They came here for the first time after getting their test status. That was their first away test seires. Last time they played 2 test match and 3 ODI. Bangladesh were white washed in both the test and ODI's. However, few years has gone by since Bangladesh's first tour in Zimbabwe. Time has passed, and Bangladesh has improved a lot. They have had many player changes, including captain and also coach. The current Bangladesh team is a lot different from the Bangladesh team that had tourned Zimbabwe last time. The have gained more experience over the years and they have more promising and attacking players in the team who are more disciplined and commited to cricket than ever. Zimbabwe has changed a lot too. They have lost some senior experienced players. In current ranking, if we see than we can see that Bangladesh is right below Zimbabwe. Well, before was not a good way to evaluate the two teams because even though Zimbabwe is just above is they are actually a lot more experienced team than us. However, I think time has changed and the gap between us two is decreasing. I think the current Zimbabwe team is weaker than the team Bangladesh played when they went for the first time even though they have players like Streak, Blignaut, Taibu, Price and Carlisle. However, we also have youngers like Ashraful and Rajin and promising all rounders like Rana and Mushfiq. Zimbabwe captain Heath Streak has already informed that his team would want to dominate against Bangladesh (cricket.org). However, I think we surely have players in our team who are capable of dismissing his dreams.
