There has only been one previous ODI at this venue, which saw Bangladesh chased down 198 with ease. Thus, there could be a bit of turn on offer, although the batsmen could enjoy themselves if they get acclimatized to the pace of the track.
Weather is not expected to play spoilsport and one can brace oneself for an entire 100-over contest.
Zimbabwean cricket has been in turmoil over the past few years and they've not been able to relieve the pressure with any significant on-field performances. In the Test against Bangladesh, the African nation wilted to an innings defeat and they would be hoping to rectify those mistakes as they look to give a better account of themselves in the 50-over format.
Bangladesh, meanwhile, would want to continue their white-ball ascendancy, especially after impressing in those versions over the past couple of years. And, with home conditions to bank on, the Tigers might just prove to be a little too hot to handle for Zimbabwe.
