Bangladesh’s ODI and T20 International squad left the country for Zimbabwe on Thursday.
They will join the players of the Test squad after a day of quarantine there. The one-off Test between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe has already started with the second day of the game running.
The ODI team will be led by Tamim Iqbal who skipped the Test match to give his injured knee some rest. But according to the doctors, Tamim needs a long-term rest to recover from the injury fully.
Since he is the captain of the ODI team, Tamim decided to play the series with some risk. He is all set to skip the T20 series, which Mahmudullah Riyad will lead.
Bangladesh’s three ODIs are scheduled on July 16, 18 and 20 and then they will take on the hosts for the three-match T20 International series, scheduled to be held on July 23, 25 and 27.
The Tigers will play a one-day practice game on July 14.
