After losing the only Test match of the series, the visiting Zimbabweans will be looking forward to settling scores in the Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe ODI series. Both teams haven’t played much 50-over cricket for the past six months and both sides lost their previous ODI assignments by a 3-0 margin. While Bangladesh are favourites to inflict misery on the visitors, Zimbabwe will look for a win that can turn their fortunes around.
According to Accuweather, the weather for the Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 1st ODI match promises to be slightly on the higher side with the temperature expected to be around 31-degree celsius. There won’t be much wind and it is expected to be sunny. There is a high probability that the pitch won’t change a bit during the course of the game.
The Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet last hosted a match in 2018. It was between Bangladesh and West Indies. One can expect the pitch to favour the batsman slightly and a 250+ is definitely on the cards. With no moisture in the air, the pitch is unlikely to change its course during the game and the toss will be a neutral factor.
