The Bangladesh batsmen played comfortably through the line on most occasions during center-wicket training and matches in Mirpur in the last couple of weeks. Zimbabwe too have to make three changes to the side that beat Sri Lanka back in July last year. Tarisai Musakanda, Sean Williams, and Carl Mumba are out, and will most likely be replaced by Brendan Taylor, Kyle Jarvis, and Chris Mpofu. Bangladesh would be making at least four changes to the XI that played against South Africa in October last year. Tamim Iqbal and Mustafizur Rahman, who missed that game through injuries, will replace Soumya Sarkar and Taskin Ahmed. With Imrul Kayes injured, Anamul Haque and Mohammad Mithun will get their opportunities if Bangladesh play seven specialist batsmen.
