Venue : The Gabba, Brisbane bangladesh vs zimbabwe Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe T-20 World cup 2022 After the disappointing show in the T-20 World cup 2020, both Bangladesh and Zimbabwe would want to make amends in the next edition in 2022. They were both group stage casualties with Bangladesh not even making it to the Super 10 stage. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, managed to win a game each against Afghanistan and Nepal. It is safe to say that both teams would be looking to improve their performances in the next edition. Here is a look at how they are shaping up ahead of the tournament.

Bangladesh has been a powerhouse in the cricket world for a while now. In the 2015 World Cup, they were able to make it to the quarter-finals before losing to India. This year, they are looking to go even further and possibly make it to the semi-finals. They have a very strong team, led by captain Mashrafe Mortaza. Some of their key players include Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, and Mushfiqur Rahim. They have shown that they can compete with the best teams in the world, and they will be looking to do so again in this year’s World Cup.

The Zimbabwean and the Bangladeshi team will be up against each other in the 28th contest of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 on 28 Oct,2022. The official match timings are local time and IST. It will be played at The Gabba stadium. Weather will remain sunny throughout the day so the match would be played without any kind of interruption due to rain.

Zimbabwe Squad: Craig Ervine (c), Ryan Burl, Regis Chakabva, Tendai Chatara, Bradley Evans, Luke Jongwe, Clive Madande, Wessly Madhevere, Wellington Masakadza, Tony Munyonga, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava, Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Sean Williams

Bangladesh: Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Afif Hossain, Mossadek Hossain, Litton Das, Yasir Ali, Nurul Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Hasan Mahmud, Najmul Hossain, Nasum Ahmed.

The Zimbabwean team has given some exceptional performance in this T20 World Cup 2022 both in the group stage first and now in the Super-12. They recently defeated Australia for the first time in the ODIs. They performed magnificently well in the group stage and qualified for the Super-12 and just in their 2nd match of this event, they were able to defeat Pakistan in a thrilling contest. They were successful in defending 130 runs against Pakistan. So they’ll be feeling confident.

 Zimbabwe’s team has some fine talent in their team. Blessing Muzarabani, who is a young fast bowler, was also named in their T20 World Cup squad. He bowled superbly against Pakistan. Another star player is Sikander Raza. During the past 1 year, he has scored 516 runs in 15 T20s at an average of 39.69 and holds the record of getting 7 man of match awards this year, the most by any cricketer in a year. While Wessly Madhevere is also in brilliant form from the previous one year. The notable bowling performance from the Zimbabwe side from the previous 1 year has been from Sikander Raza and Luke Jongwe. These will be the key players of the Zimbabwe team. Sikander Raza’s performance in the qualifiers of this world cup ensured his team reached the Super-12 stage of the World cup. He can give a fine all-round performance even on bad days. Meanwhile, Richard Ngarava, another pacer of the Zimbabwean squad, remained economical as well in previous few matches.

While Bangladesh’s team won their first match against Netherlands, the defeat in the 2nd match against South Africa put a huge dent on their run-rate which would play a crucial role later in the tournament.

The Bangladeshi team has played 133 matches till to date, losing 85 matches and winning just 35, its record in the T20 format is horrendous. The win to lose ratio is 0.529. Throughout this journey, Bangladesh has been lacking power hitter and a good bowling attack and we have seen this in the previous performances.

 Their current opening players are weak and are unable to build an early partnership and we had seen that in the Tri-series between New Zealand, Bangladesh and Pakistan just before the World Cup.

They’ll be eyeing Afif to perform. Since his debut, he proved to be a great addition to the Bangladeshi side.  Litton Das brings stability in the innings whenever he comes to bat. He will be the key batter for Bangladesh.

Shakib-al-Hassan, the captain, Mustafizur Rahman and Mahedi Hassan has been their top wicket taker from previous 1 year.  Shakib al Hassan is on the no 1 spot in the ICC ranking for the top all-rounders in T20 format. He is a fine batter too. He and his teammates need to perform if they want to survive in this tournament and qualify for the semi-final.


We cannot really predict the result of this match. If we consider past record and bilateral contests between these two, then definitely Bangladesh are looking favourites but if we take the most recent performances in consideration, then Zimbabwe are looking favourites.



Zimbabwe is a country located in the southern part of Africa. It is bordered by Zambia to the north, Botswana to the west and south, and South Africa to the south. The capital and largest city is Harare. The official languages are English, Shona, and Ndebele. The population is around 16 million people. Zimbabwe was once a prosperous country with a strong economy. However, years of bad governance and corruption have led to economic decline. Inflation is high and unemployment is rampant. Zimbabwe is now one of the poorest countries in Africa. The majority of Zimbabweans are black Africans. There are also small minorities of whites and Asians. The main religion is Christianity, followed by Islam and traditional African religions. The Zimbabwe national cricket team has not been doing well in recent years. They were eliminated in the first round of the 2015 Cricket World Cup. However, they did beat Bangladesh in a Test match earlier this year.
