Bangladesh face ZImbabwe in the second ODI at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna on Sunday.

Having won the first T20 of the four-match series, Bangladesh players are primed to win all the remaining matches against a hapless Zimbabwe, who are struggling in the limited overs format.

"I think winning the first game of the year was quite useful. This series is very important ahead of the Asia Cup. We want to win all four games," Bangladesh all-rounder Sabbir Rahman told reporters ahead of the second T20 of the series against Zimbabwe on Sunday. 

Bangladesh won the first T20 of the series by four wickets. They did it with ease with more than an over to spare in the end. ZImbabwe will have to find a way out to stop the hosts from scoring freely.

The only gain for Zimbabwe from the first T20 was Hamilton Masakadza's innings that helped the visitors put up a decent total. "I think it was more of positives from the way we started our batting and at some stages our spinners bowled well as well. So there were few positives to take out of the game," Masakadza said. 

The pitch is likely to be a similar one. The dew factor is going to come into play in the second innings of the match. The two captains will be wary of that. The team winning the toss should ideally bat first on this Khulna surface. 

Bangladesh will look to go 2-0 up in the series and assert their dominance over the vistors yet again. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, will look to avoid another defeat on Sunday. To outclass the Bangla Tigers at their own backyard, Zimbawean cricketers will have to play good all-round cricket.
