Zimbabwe are undergoing a torrid time, having suffered an ODI and T20 series loss to Afghanistan and they will head into this tour with low confidence. They will play three ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals in their two-week tour. Allrounder Elton Chigumbura will lead them in both the formats, according to a report on bdnews24.com.

Zimbabwe are filing the gap left by Australia, who pulled out of their two-Test tour in October over security concerns. This series, which was originally scheduled for 2016, was decided after the Australian withdrawal. In Zimbabwe's last tour to Bangladesh, they lost the Test series 0-3 and the ODIs 0-5.
