Zimbabwe are set to host Bangladesh for a one-off Test which will be played in Harare. Both the countries lost their previous Test series (Zimbabwe 0-2 Pakistan, Bangladesh 0-1 Sri Lanka) and will be looking to put up a better show when they meet each other. With some star players back in action, the fans can expect a thrilling game of 5-day cricket between two evenly-balanced sides.
Among the wicketkeepers, Mushfiqur Rahim and Brendan Taylor should be the obvious picks considering they are the most prolific batsmen in their respective sides. While Craig Ervine and Tamim Iqbal would also get some crucial points, Mominul Haque is the man to watch out for as he would want to add to his 3279 runs in Test career.
Some of the most quality all-rounders in form of Shakib Al Hasan, Sean Williams and Mehidy Hasan will also be on display and should be a part of your fantasy side. Among the bowlers, Blessing Muzarabani and Taskin Ahmed have looked impressive in the limited opportunities they have got in red-ball cricket and could be great additions, as they will certainly get some assistance on Harare wicket.
