Zim want to build momentum ahead of World T20


Zimbabwe coach Dav Whatmore says his side will be looking to build momentum ahead of the World T20 in March, starting with the four-match series in Bangladesh which starts on Friday.

The African side lost both their recent T20 games against Afghanistan in the UAE, but have lined up enough matches to get their combinations right before the showpiece event.

Zimbabwe welcome back the trio of Vusi Sibanda, Sean Williams and Brian Vitori into the fold, and the coach said everyone will get some gametime.

Whatmore said: "We have come here to win. We are also mindful that we have another 10 games before the World T20. There will be a portion of looking at different combinations.

"They [Sibanda, Vitori and Williams] will get a chance. Sean is certainly in our best team. The other two boys have got a chance to impress. They will be given their opportunity.

"No one has come in here just to carry the drinks. So they will all play. Our bowling attack has been a bit inexperienced without [Tinashe] Panyangara.

"We haven't been able to keep a settled team. We have had a close look at it. Our best team hasn't been on the pitch in quite a while. We are still looking at other objectives to achieve in this four-match series."
