2022 ICC World T20: Super 12 Stage Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh Preview


It is an exciting Sunday as Group 2 will witness all the 6 teams play. The first match of the day comes from Brisbane as the Gabba ground will host Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. The two teams have played a lot of cricket with each other over the last few years. Bangladesh come into the game on the back of a huge loss to South Africa. Zimbabwe on the other hand beat Pakistan by 1 run to cause perhaps one of the biggest upsets.

Venue – Gabba Cricket Ground, Brisbane

Time – 830 AM IST

Likely Pitch Conditions –

The Gabba ground is known for its pace and bounce and the fast electric outfield. The team winning the toss will elect to bat first. The spinners might come into play if the sun beats down but the purchase may be off negligible effect. The big boundaries will see less sixes being hit so the teams will have to focus more on their running.

Likely Bangladesh XI –

N. Hossain, S. Sarkar, L. Das, S Al Hasan, A.Hossain, M. Hasan, M. Hossain, N. Hasan, T. Ahmed, H. Mahmud and M. Rahman
