Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2016 cricket series is starting from 15th January. The series will consist of 4 T20 matches only. This series was planned a few days ago. Recently Zimbabwe visited Bangladesh in November 2015 for 4 ODI and 2 T20 matches. The test matches were supposed to be played in January 2016. But, both cricket boards agreed to play 4 T20 matches again instead of the test matches as the next ICC main event is the T20 World Cup 2016. This series will help both the teams to prepare for that tournament.
The second last series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe was held during October-December in 2014. So, it will be their third meeting in approximately a year and a half. Bangladesh won all the matches in that series in 2014. 3 Test whitewash and 5 ODI whitewash is a sweet memory for every Bangladeshi cricket lover. Here is the summary of that series. In 2015, Zimbabwe managed to win one T20 match against Bangladesh, but lost all the other matches. Here is the summary of that series.
As Zimbabwe has been the weaker side than Bangladesh in the recent few years, it should be an easy series win for the tigers. But, Zimbabwe is looking forward and made a clear statement by beating Bangladesh in their last meeting in the last bilateral series.
