Visitor Zimbabwe will be looking to break a 13-match losing streak against Bangladesh when the two sides lock horns in the first match of a three ODI series at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium Sunday.

Zimbabwe have not won a 50-over game against Bangladesh in the last seven years and made five changes to the squad that played the one-off Test match in Dhaka last week.

When asked which of the two teams have a better chance of winning, Zimbabwe ODI captain Chamu Chibhabha told the media: “Anything can happen. Whoever shows up on the day and plays the best cricket has got the better chance of winning the game. Whoever does the basics better on the day will probably win.”

Having played the most against Bangladesh in his 103 ODIs since his debut in 2005, Chibhabha believes being familiar with the opponent and conditions will help the visitor to get a rare win against the Tigers.

“I have personally played a lot against Bangladesh, even before I started playing internationals. I played against Shakib [al Hasan] and Mushfiqur [Rahim] before they were representing Bangladesh. Bangladesh has been like our second home and we are excited to be here. It is always nice to be here and hopefully we can put up some good performances and win some games,” said the top-order batsman.

Zimbabwe are coming into the ODI series on the back of a Test defeat against Bangladesh. 

The visitor lost by an innings and 106 runs in around three and a half days at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka last week.
