Last week, Dav Whatmore had said Bangladesh were firm favourites against Zimbabwe. After the 31-hour flight from Dhaka, he seems less confident. “I have noted that the Zimbabwean team are also keenly looking forward to this visit and they have sent their players to South Africa for three practice matches before Bangladesh come and I get the feeling that they are really keen to even up the score from when they played in Bangladesh last year. So it’ll be a hell of a contest,” he says. Quick turnaround, eh?
