Expectation of the Team, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe

After passing a very bad time, Zimbabwe is determined to turn off. Prosper Utseya who is the captain of Zimbabwe Cricket Team, has declared that they will win the series.

ECB reported:

Morale in camp is soaring,” Utseya said. “All the players are raring to go. We are out to do well, and if the sky holds we want to do just that. Our preparations have gone on pretty well and I am optimistic that the boys will deliver the goods.

“The playing conditions are on our side so all we need to do is pull in one direction as a team, stick to the basics and take our chances when they come.

“The other thing that might just work in our favour is that we have retained the same team that beat Bangladesh 3-2 at the same venue last year.”

Bangladesh Captain Habibul Bashar considered that Zimbabwe team is strong and he added the series will be very competitive.

“Look at what has been happening to us since we started playing them. If they were a weak side then what would be the point in being here at all for any matches?”

"We are actually getting stronger by playing Zimbabwe and that is a good thing for both of us (Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) because we will be improving on our mistakes.

"We are ready for the fight, yes I know when Zimbabwe came to Bangladesh towards the end of last year we managed to whitewash them.

"Zimbabwe are a strong side especially at home so for us that means we have a big challenge but what we are looking for is a definite win," said Bashar.

These four match series will play at Harare in Zimbabwe from 4-10 Feb. Both captain is determine to win the series.
