The best thing about A games is that results are not that important, unlike international games. The more A games Zimbabwe play, the better these players will get. Lot of our Indian players have done well straight away in international cricket because of the exposure they've got at U19 and A tours. BCCI has focussed a lot on this. I

Bowling talents looks horrible.

A 6 ft 1⁄2 high, 86 kg weight bowler with no pace looks surprising. Has all the ingredients of a fast bowler, needs to work with good coach to have some venom in his bowling

No but bangladesh spinners have quality
Depends on the format, but in 50 over cricket Bangladesh pacers are probably even better than Rabada.

These young ZIM batters do look to have some potential.

I suspect the series vs Bangladesh will be very tight in all formats and the BD team should not be complacent as they often are.

That's an arrogant call.!!! He ranks 9th in test and 6th in odi, has been effective in sub continent conditions.

Bangladesh Pacers have struggled in shorter format and can be declared as worst at present in Test format.In recent tour of New Zeland they were badly exposed in bowling friendly pitches, and were horrible in test series against Sri Lanka. Batters have now pointed out how to play Mustafizur, though he performed in bits & pieces but his economical matter is missing from his bowling.The Fizz has got differant stats in slow tracks and in green, seam friendly tracks, he is suited more in slower tracks and he can trouble Zim more in Bulawayo then in Harare.Spinners were the prime reason for Bangladesh series wins at home against the lower ranked opposition.

Among present Bangladesh pacers it still Fizz is only one that matters. Ebadat, Jayed hard working bowlers but lacks in that test match length, Taskin has been a fall after change in action, Saifuddin is injury proned and can sense why its tough to be a seam bowling alleounder in sub continent.Rubel may be injured. Shoriful has got material in him but his attitude is being shown more then his bowling, he is still young can learn mental aspect in future. I don't see anyone except Fizz who can trouble Zimbabwe

In test Zim will be bit ahead, but Bulwayo pitch willl help Bangladesh spinners. In shorter formats, Bangladesh are favourite, Zim lacks quality bowling, a green seam friendly pitch can make a neck to neck battle

Looks like SA walked it in. Considering our total, probably should have done much better at defending it.

It's really nice to see the likes of Marumani and Myers do well in their discipline. This is what they need to do and to show their metal. Some of the senior guys need to ask questions of themselves. I think though, this series will definitely highlight some serious deficiencies in our set up and our team.

On a side note, out kit...horrible. Surely we can work a deal with Faith or Bata. They made such better kits.
