Zimbabwe win toss and bowl in Bangladesh ODI
Harare (AFP) –
Zimbabwe won the toss and chose to bowl first on Friday in the first of three one-day internationals against Bangladesh at Harare Sports Club.
Bangladesh will be looking to carry on where they left off last year -- winning all three ODIs when Zimbabwe visited the Asian nation.
The three matches are part of the World Cup Super League, a feeder tournament that determines which seven teams, along with hosts India, earn direct qualification to the 2023 Cricket World Cup.
Tamim Iqbal will skipper Bangladesh having recovered from a knee injury while Brendan Taylor leads Zimbabwe because Sean Williams is unavailable after testing positive for coronavirus.
Zimbabwe: Wesley Madhevere, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Brendan Taylor (capt), Dion Myers, Timycen Maruma, Regis Chakabva, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava
