 BAN vs ZIM Toss Prediction 

Each team won the toss once in the group stage. Bangladesh did so when they last met Zimbabwe, so Zimbabwe are due to win this one. They may look to field first if they do.

 BAN vs ZIM Weather Report 

Chittagong is forecast to bask in a mostly sunny day on Wednesday, with only the odd cloud and the chance of rain given as low – and unlikely to stick around if it does come down. Temperatures should be around 30 degrees Celsius all day.

 BAN vs ZIM Pitch Condition 

Chittagong will aid the spinners – as it did in the test match against Afghanistan earlier this month – but you only have to look at some of the Bangladesh scores there last winter to see it can also be good for batting too.

 Team NEWS: 

 BAN Team News 

Bangladesh stuck with the same 11 for their two matches in Dhaka, with Mahedi Hasan and Yeasin Arafat missing out, but those two have now been dropped from the squad alongside Soumya Sarkar. In their place, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Rubel Hossain, Aminul Islam, Shaiful Islam and Mohammad Naim have all been called up.  There is likely to be rotation for this game as Bangladesh assess their option in advance of next year’s World T20.

 ZIM Team News 
Tony Munyonga made his Zimbabwe debut in the opening game and Ainsley Ndlovu did likewise in the second. Regis Chakabva also came into the team last time out, so Christopher Mpofu and Richmond Mutumbami are their only unused players so far. After their bowling took a hit last time out, Mpofu could come into the team this time.

Team Forms:

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe are struggling big time in the shortest format of the game and have lost 12 out of their last 14 T20 internationals. After suffering a 0-2 whitewash at the hands of the Proteas in South Africa last year in October, they lost 0-1 to Netherlands at Rotterdam in June before drawing the two-match T20I series against Ireland at Bready in July. Zimbabwe put up an impressive batting performance in their convincing eight-wicket win last time out, chasing Ireland's 171 with 20 balls to spare.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have played their last six T20 internationals against the West Indies out of which they have won three and lost as many. They beat the Windies 2-1 on their tour of the Caribbean and the USA last year in July-August but lost to them 1-2 in a three-game home series later in December. Bangladesh managed to win only five out of the sixteen T20Is they played last year. In the Nidahas Twenty20 Tri-Series held in Sri Lanka, they defeated the hosts in both their encounters against them but lost to India in the final.

Key Players:

 ZIM Key Players: 

 Kyle Jarvis: 
Expensive against Afghanistan but he took two wickets when these teams last met and has 24 in his 20 previous T20 international in total.

 Ryan Burl: 
Followed up his big-hitting 57* in the match against Bangladesh with 25 runs – including two sixes – last time out, but he was unable to score as quickly. Nevertheless, his form is good and his leg-spin is an additional bowling option if called upon.

 Brendan Taylor: 
Set the tone with a handy 27 from 16 balls at the top of the order last time out. The wicket-keeper-batsman has had no shortage of suitors in T20 cricket and his record stands up for itself.

 Brendan Taylor: 
The Zimbabwean skipper is set to retire after the end of this series and he will want to make his last few innings count. The opening batsman has scored the most runs for the team in the 20-over format - 1529 runs - and he will be expected to take the team off to a flying start.

 Sean Williams: 
He is among the world's best all-rounders in T20 internationals. The left-hander is one of the leading run-scorers for Zimbabwe and has cracked four fifties in the format. Williams has 23 wickets under his belt and he can trouble the Bangladeshi batsmen with his offspin.

 Craig Ervine: 
The left-handed top-order batsman had a very good T20I series in Ireland where he topped the runs charts with scores of 55 and 68* in the two matches. He has plenty of experience in this format and Zimbabwe will want him to continue his impressive form.

 BAN Key Players: 

 Shakib Al Hasan: 
Took 2-18 with the ball last time out, including a maiden, to issue a reminder of his best for though his batting has not matched yet. Nevertheless, he remains the Tigers’ key man with bat and ball.

 Mohd Saifuddin: 
Having taken 1-26 in the first game against Zimbabwe, he claimed 4-33 last time out with his pace bowling. It was his first four-wicket haul in T20 internationals and his third in the format in total.

 Mushtafizur Rahim: 
Wicketless last time out but he did keep things tight with the ball. His wicket-taking ability in all formats is not in doubt either – the left-arm paceman’s next scalp will be his 50th in T20 internationals, with this set to be his 33rd game.

All the best
