The visiting Zimbabwean team was beaten badly by Bangladesh in three Test series and that was a big achievement in the longer version of the game. Both sides will be involved in five One Day Internationals and the visitors will be anticipating different results in the forthcoming series. Two countries have played 59 ODIs, the Bengal Tigers have grabbed 31 while Zimbabwe were successful 28 times. The first match between them was held on October 11, 1997, at Gymkhana Club Ground, Nairobi, where Bangladesh lost by 48 runs and they suffered in their last game as well by seven wickets on May 8, 2013, at Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo. The home side were at the receiving end on their away tour of West Indies who whitewashed the series at 3-0. Zimbabwe got the same fate at home against the visiting South Africans who degraded them in all three ODIs in the last series.

  1. Bengal Tigers are favourite to win 1st ODI v Zim. If pitch assist spinners then BD will win easily. If it assist pacers, which is very unlikely, then Zim might have upper hands. First innings score will be deciding factor. My trading strategy at BetfairBetfair will be to wait for toss and wait for at least 10 overs to see the pitch's condition and then start trading. BD, batting first, can loose few early wickets but they can comeback later in the innings to score enough to defend. However they are also vulnerable to getting out with their mindless shots if this happens a collapse is inevitable and Zim can win.

    Those who love local bookies can back Bangladesh at their own risk.

    Traders can pick Tigers and trade on them.
