Preview: Zimbabwe won the toss and opted to field in the first T20I against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Monday.
Having been beaten in the one-off Test by an innings and 106 runs before being swept 0-3 in the subsequent one-day series — with two of those matches resulting in one-sided victories for the hosts — Zimbabwe will hope to bounce back in the two T20Is that remain in their tour of Bangladesh.
Despite the team losing the rain-affected third ODI by 123 runs — just three days after they ran Bangladesh close while chasing a mighty 323-run target — captain Sean Williams maintained a positive approach and said the shortest format was anybody's for the taking.
In a year in which most teams are increasing the number of 20-over fixtures with the T20 World Cup in mind, a victory or two in this format will help boost the morale for the Chevrons.
Bangladesh themselves have lost four consecutive T20Is — two each against neighbours India and Pakistan — and will hope the return of Mushfiqur Rahim to their squad will help them snap the streak.
Zimbabwe: Sikandar Raza, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams(c), Wesley Madhevere, Richmond Mutumbami(w), Donald Tiripano, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Carl Mumba, Chris Mpofu.
Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das(w), Mahedi Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah(c), Afif Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Saifuddin, Aminul Islam, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman.

Pakistan captain Azam made 85 and shared an opening stand of 150 with Mohammad Rizwan in a national record T20 total of 232-6.
According to a report in Cricbuzz, Mahmudullah informed his colleagues that he is not willing to continue his Test career anymore, leaving the team management shocked.
