The fourth match of the Bangladesh T20I tri-series will be played between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.


Bangladesh have looked out of sorts in the two matches that they have played in the tri-series till now. Their first match against Zimbabwe went right down to the wire. While chasing a target of 145, the team was down at 60-6 but a fightback from Afif Hosain and Mosaddek Hossain brought them back into the match and helped them win by three wickets.

There was no miracle for the team in their last game against Afghanistan as their bowling first conceded 164 runs despite four wickets from Mohammed Saifuddin and two from Shakib Al Hasan. The Tiger's batting let them down once again and could only manage 139, gifting Afghanistan a 25-run victory.

Keeping this in mind, Bangladesh have now included uncapped Mohammad Naim, Aminul Islam for next two T20Is. Quicks Rubel Hossain and Shafiul Islam have also been recalled.

These are desperate times for Zimbabwe. They have already lost both their first two matches. They started off the tournament with a three-wicket defeat against Bangladesh and then lost by a big margin of 28 runs against Afghanistan. The team has to pull off something special in order to send a message for their reinclusion at the international level or things might go terribly downhill for them.

Hamilton Masakadza would be playing his second last match and would be expected to contribute with the bat. Brendan Taylor and Sean Williams would be the other leading batsmen while Tendai Chatara and Klye Jarvis would be their main men with the ball.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Bangladesh- Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mosaddek Hossain, Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman

Zimbabwe- Brendan Taylor, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, Regis Chakabva, Ryan Burl, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Neville Madziva, Kyle Jarvis, Ainsley Ndlovu, Tendai Chatara
