Abu Jayed has quietly cemented his position in the Test side, having become only the second Bangladesh pace bowler with 20 wickets in the last five years. He was accurate against Pakistan in the Rawalpindi Test, and earned praise from the senior players for his ability to bowl with a genuine outswing with both the new and old ball.
Sikandar Raza comes into this Test match fresh from a seven-wicket haul against Sri Lanka in Harare last month. He had also led the Zimbabwe attack in their Test win over Bangladesh in Sylhet two years ago, with a match haul of six wickets. Raza will have a crucial role to play with the bat, too, specially in the absence of Sean Williams in the middle-order.
Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehidy Hasan are automatic choices to replace Mahmudullah and Rubel Hossain from the previous Test XI. Bangladesh are set to field two seamers in Ebadot Hossain and Abu Jayed, with Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan making up the spin department.
While Mushfiqur Rahim is a direct replacement for Mahmudullah in the middle order, Naeem Hassan and Taskin Ahmed too stand a chance of making the final cut.
Probable XI: Mominul Haque (c), Tamim Iqbal, Saif Hasan, Nazmul Hasan Shanto, Musfiqur Rahim, Taijul Islam, Mohammad Mithun, Liton Das, Abu Jayed Rahi, Naeem Hassan, Ebadat Hossain/ Taskin Ahmed
A big task ahead of stand-in skipper Craig Ervine is to find the ideal replacement for Sean Williams. Timycen Marum could be a frontrunner for the vacant spot in the middle-order.
Probable XI: Prince Masavure, Kevin Kasuza, Craig Ervine (c), Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza, Timycen Maruma, Regis Chakabva, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Donald Tiripano, Carl Mumba, V Nyauchi
