Zimbabwe ODI captain Hamilton Masakadza believed the upcoming three-match ODI series will be a competitive one, like many other series between the two teams before, as he has a balanced squad to face Bangladesh.

Zimbabwe team took part in their first practice session after arriving in Bangladesh at the BCB academy ground on Wednesday afternoon. Zimbabwe lost the ODI and T20I series against South Africa recently and flew to Bangladesh directly from there.

Few Zimbabwe players like Masakadza, Sikandar Raza, Graeme Cremer and Brendon Taylor have experience to play in Bangladesh as they played Dhaka Premier League and Bangladesh Premier League for few seasons. Captain Masakadza believed that experience could help them immensely.  

“It’s an important series for both the team. We have played lot of competitive series against each other. Hopefully this series will be another competitive one as well. Bangladesh are very successful team in their home condition. They have proved it in last few years. It’s tough to win here,” said Masakadza to the media after practice session.  

“But few of our players have played plenty of cricket in this country. They know the condition well. I think that will be helpful for us. We have some young talents along with some experienced performers. I think we have a team which can win series here”, added the 35-year old batsman.

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan are not playing in the series due to injury. But Zimbabwe captain believed even after losing two of their best performers Bangladesh is a force to reckon with.

“Both Shakib and Tamim are big players for Bangladesh. They are performing for Bangladesh for many years. But I believe Bangladesh have plenty of palyers in the squad. I don’t think Banglaesh will lose that much strength as a team despite the absence of Shakib or Tamim,” he concluded.
