Shakib Al Hasan
We will have a bat. Looks a very dry wicket and we are always comfortable with runs on the board. Important game for both teams and we will have to play our best to win against Zimbabwe. They will be on a high after that win against Pakistan and we will have to play our best cricket. We got one change. Yasir Ali comes in for Mehidy Hasan.
Looking at the conditions, don’t think it’s gonna change too much throughout the day. Beautiful weather and obviously batting first would have been our priority. We had to fly out next day (after win against Pakistan) and haven’t got too much time to celebrate, but we know that’s the nature of the tournament. Focus is on today and not trying to look too far ahead. We have one change. Luke Jongwe sits out for Tendai Chatara.
Man of the Match is Taskin Ahmed
We were nervous in the middle after that last ball (no-ball). I’ve seen something like that for the first time. Just focusing on improving and giving my best. Back home we play on slow wickets, and here we get early movement and help off the track as well. Got a good bunch of fast bowling group, we support each other and working hard to improve ourselves. We get great support from our bowling coach (Alan Donald) and all the other support staff. We got a good group and hopefully improve more.
