With the win rhythm, the host team can now take on the unchanged XI.

However, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza could not be happy with the top-order after the team’s performance. Before the second match, Mashrafe said, “After a hundred batsmen in the top order, the team runs three hundred and three runs. At the beginning of the first century, one should go beyond the score of 300. After the big collection at the top order, the help needed is not available in time. After running it is not too big. We have to play in our second one-day internationals.
On the other hand, the team’s top-order and senior players are expecting big innings, Zimbabwe’s coach Lalchand Rajput. Before the second ODI, he said, “senior players of the team have to be more responsible. Captain Masakadza made a century in the preparation match. Hopefully, we can do something good in the one-day series too. Brendan Taylor could not keep up with good start. I hope he can score big. “Our top five batsmen have to take responsibility.
