It's good Evey match in Harare is boring and doesn't do our players good in the long term. Plus the Harare pit h is not being curated to suit us anyway.
Queens pitch is more subcontinent like then Harare. ZC should bring back life in Harare pitch which it was in 90s, providing assistance for the pacers.

News circulating that Mushfiq sought leave for T20Is in Zim. Probably Tamim Iqbal will miss the T20Is too as like NZ tour.

ODIs will be the most important from WSL point of view. A depleted T20 side from Bangladesh may provide a good opportunity for Zimbabwe to pull off a series win in the shortest format.

This link says "all matches will be played in Harare". So looks like no Test at Queens.

Tour finally confirmed by ZC. All matches in Harare including the lone Test.

Meanwhile Mushfiqur Rahim has a hairline fracture on his left index finger. Not much time to recover before the Test series.

Bangladesh named their squad for all three formats. Mushfiq rested in T20Is. Otherwise best possible squad is announced. T20 sqaud is relatively younger.

Test match would be interesting. BD and Pakistan have always sent their strongest squads to Zim unlike India. We only have 5 batsmen who can score a ton at this level. There is a big hole at the top and number 7. Kasuza and Prince are ok but wont score more than 70s. It’s high time we give chances to Musakanda, Myers and Shumba. I think these 3 plus Burl can bat longer.

Im happy the test is in Harare.Our biggest problem is who will open for the test matches. That's a real headache for the selectors. Maybe this time they should force 2 senior players to open. I would try something different like Regis and Raza.

It will be a lot to ask for from Regis but he proved he can bat up the order against Pakistan and still keep. Raza has opened 5 times and he averages 42 batting at 1 and 51 batting at 2. He is the solution for me. He opened against Bangladesh too.

We could then play a team like this

Raza
Regis(wk)
Ervine
Taylor
Williams
Myers
Burl
Tiripano
Blessing
Ngarava
Nyauchi

People might say the tail is long but I believe if we play on a seamer friendly track like that first test in Afghanistan, these guys will pick up 20 wickets without conceding more than 350 runs.
