A volcano of emotions erupted for the Afghanistan cricket fans and the players as they overcame the elements which separated them from a historic win. They started their Bangladesh tour with an emphatic win in the first test, their first ever in the longest format of the game. A bigger challenge awaits them as they are set to play a trilateral T20I series involving Bangladesh and Zimbabwe as well. The tri-series kicks off on Friday, 13th September with Bangladesh taking on Zimbabwe. Bangladesh last played a limited-overs match back in July in which they were defeated by Pakistan by 94 runs. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, are coming off a poor campaign against Ireland wherein they won just a solitary match, that too the last match of the tour. Both the sides have a point to prove coming into this fixture and we expect a scintillating contest between the two sides.
Bangladesh had a pretty good World Cup campaign, but they have still made six changes to their limited-overs squad. The likes of Mohammad Mithun, Rubel Hossain, and Mehidy Hasan have been left out and with Tamim Iqbal still, on break, their team is a little light on experience.
They have recalled a couple of players who were earlier left out to add depth to their squad. Sabbir Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain have been added to their squad. On paper, they have a pretty decent line-up with the likes of Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar at the top of the order and Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mahmudullah to follow.
In the bowling department as well, they look well settled despite having lack of experienced bowlers. Mashrafe Mortaza was exceptional at leading the troops, and it would be interesting to see how Shakib Al Hasan marshalls his troops.
Bangladesh are coming off a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Afghanistan in the only test match of the tour, but it is likely to bother them considering the change in formats as well as the introduction of six new players in the squad.
Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman.
Coming off a disappointing Irish tour earlier this year and then ICC suspension in July, Zimbabwe resumed their international campaign on a happy note. They got off to a promising start with a win in their only tour game as they registered a convincing seven-wicket win in the tour game against Bangladesh Cricket Board.
Chasing a total of 143, Zimbabwe got off to a pretty good start with Brendan Taylor and Hamilton Masakadza adding 42 runs for the first wicket in just five overs. While Masakadza perished in a bid to increase the scoring-rate, Brendan Taylor continued to ease his way into the innings. The likes of Craig Ervine and Sean Williams were dismissed quickly to leave them in a spot of bother before Maruma and Taylor got them home without any further damage.
With the ball for them, it was Sean Williams' left-arm spin, which proved to be most effective as he not only kept the scoring rate in check but also picked up three important wickets. All in all, Zimbabwe appear to be a pretty good unit, especially after their performance in the tour game. Having said that, the pressure of a tour game is a lot different to the one in a match with higher stakes, and if they can manage pressure well and adjust to the conditions, there's no reason why Zimbabwe cannot pull an upset here.
Ryan Burl, BRM Taylor, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, T Maruma, CT Mutombodzi, Tony Munyonga, Neville Madziva, Kyle Jarvis, Tendai Chatara.

While Bangladesh were perceived to be the favorites a couple of weeks ago, their loss to Afghanistan has certainly put things into perspective. They have a few clear vulnerabilities, which they'd like to sort out going into the upcoming fixture. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, looked decent in their tour game, but the T20I will demand a lot more. Comparing the two sides on paper, Bangladesh are certainly better of the two. In addition to that, they have the home advantage, and are, therefore, out pick to win the upcoming contest.
