Bangladesh to host Zimbabwe in ODI series

The minnows meet again. Bangladesh will host Zimbabwe in a five-match one-day series starting in November, the Bangladesh board announced on Sunday.

Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh 3-2 on home soil earlier this year in a warm-up for the Champions Trophy but when the teams clashed in that tournament in India, Bangladesh claimed the upperhand with a convincing 101-run victory.

And now Zimbabwe will once more have to contend with subcontinental conditions when they head to Bangladesh at the end of the month. The Reuters news agency reported that the series will kick off with a Twenty20 match on Sunday November 28 in southwestern Kulhna which will also be the venue for the first ODI.

The second and third ODIs will take place in northern Bogra on December 3 and 5, with the final two matches in the capital Dhaka on December 8 and 9.
