After winning the Test and ODI series, team Bangladesh is going to win the T20I series this time. The Tigers won over Zimbabwe by 48 runs in 1st T20I.
Bangladesh’s cricket team is full of surprise to their opponents no doubt. Sometimes, they play so well and sometimes, they are too vulnerable. They are so much unpredictable just like the Green Army. But one thing is common about the Tigers. They are always good against Zimbabwe. This time it remains the same. The Zimbabwe cricket team is visiting Bangladesh with a long schedule. The schedule is about to finish. Just one match in hand. If we look at the attainment of the guest team, they have got none but presented everything.
At the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur, the first T20I match between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe took place earlier today. The Tigers got the dominating victory against little Zimbabwe. Now, the 2nd and final T20I is hand. Already, the Tigers have secured the T20I series. Now, they have no fear of facing the series defeat. At least, Zimbabwe can make the series draw if they can manage the 2nd T20I victory. But it seems an incomplete dream for the guest team.
At the home venue of the Tigers, under the leading of Mahmudullah, team Bangladesh played the first T20I earlier today. The toss luck was not on their side but Zimbabwe let them bat first. A number of players for the guest team made their T20I debut here against the Tigers.
Bangladesh defeat Zimbabwe by 48 runs in the First T20.
