With a momentous series sweep in sight, Bangladesh will lock horns with Zimbabwe in the fifth and final T20I of the five-game series on Sunday at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.

Bangladesh has set no foot wrong in the series to completely humiliate the associate team by taking a 4-0 lead in the T20I series. But having nothing to lose, Sikandar Raza and co. are expected to come out all guns blazing on Sunday.

BAN vs ZIM: Team Previews


The T20I series against Zimbabwe served the purpose of Bangladesh, as they are getting much-needed preparations for the upcoming T20 World Cup.

The already dominant side got added strength after Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman were added to the squad for the final two games.

Shakib instantly made a difference with a four-wicket-haul which helped Bangladesh fetch a narrow five run victory in the fourth T20I.

While it was a low-scoring thriller, Bangladesh’s non-performing middle order cannot take things lightly for the series finale.

It’s important for the men in green to maintain the momentum before travelling for the T20 World Cup.


Zimbabwe, meanwhile, are struggling to grapple with the subcontinent conditions. Sikandar Raza is leading an inexperienced side which is simply not clicking as a unit against the mighty Bangladesh side.

In the entire series, Zimbabwe’s core struggles have stemmed from the bat. Despite good starts, the middle order has failed to convert those into big scores, and captain Raza’s form is only an added concern.

That being said, to save the pride of the team in the final T20I, big guns like Brian Bennett and captain Sikandar Raza must fire up and as they have nothing to lose, Zimbabwe must drop the pressure back in the dressing room and express themselves freely.

BAN vs ZIM: Shere Bangla Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch at the Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium often offers favourable conditions for spinners, as seen in the fourth T20I. The only way for batters to gain an edge is by spending enough time on the crease, as the surface might get flat later. Batting first is expected to be the toss-winning captain’s preferred choice on this surface, and another low-scoring game could be on the cards.
