Bangladesh Players List for 2nd T20 (BD vs ZIM)
Bangladesh retained the same 3rd ODI squad for the 2nd T20 and, barring injuries, the likes of Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Anamul Haque and Jubair Hossain are unlikely to get off the bench. Bangladesh are not a team keen on experimentation, even in dead rubbers.
Bangladesh (probable): 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Anamul Haque, 3 Liton Das, 4 Mahmudullah, 5 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 6 Sabbir Rahman, 7 Nasir Hossain, 8 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 9 Al-Amin Hossain, 10 Jubair Hossain, 11 Mustafizur Rahman

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Preview
The BAN vs ZIM 1st T20 on Friday is reason enough to believe that the 2nd T20 game on Sunday would be another close one. Zimbabwe presented a strong defence after registering a below-par score, reducing Bangladesh to 80 for five, but ultimately 131 was never a great challenge for the hosts. At the end of the game, Malcolm Waller said Zimbabwe had to make a bigger total should they bat first again.
The home side also have a few worries of their own. Bangladesh started very well with the ball and although they copped some hammering from Waller in the middle overs, they also fought back well. Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman and Al-Amin Hossain were disciplined and effective.
But the batting line-up must be looked into, again. Anamul Haque was run-out, Sabbir Rahman’s promotion was a talking point while the fact that Mahmudullah and Liton Das had to deal with a late chase was a question-mark. Sabbir is a natural striker of the ball so possibly the management wanted him to take advantage of the fielding restrictions of the first six overs, but given that he is also a good runner between the wickets and has a knack of finding gaps he remains a handy option down the order. Liton and Mahmudullah couldn’t finish the job together as Mashrafe had to strike a couple of big hits to ensure the win.
Zimbabwe still remain a team with iffy batting form, despite promoting Sikandar Raza up the order. But it is a positive move, one that might pay off in the second game, their last chance to redeem themselves on the tour.
Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Pitch & Weather conditions
Malcolm Waller said the ball kept low at times on the Shere Bangla surface. It remains a 150-160 pitch for teams batting first, but there was evidence that if a batsman wanted to target the shortened boundaries it was hard to stop. The weather has been pleasant with cooler temperatures.
