CHITTAGONG-ZIMBABWE cricket team coach, Lalchand Rajput, has remained positive ahead of their Test series against Bangladesh starting this Saturday in Sylhet despite losing two days of practice because of rains.
The Chevrons, who engage in their first Test in 11 months, only managed to play the last of the three-day practice match against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI.
The match ended yesterday with a paltry 66 overs played between the sides.
The touring side declared at 145/5 and the bowlers bowled only 18 overs with Kyle Jarvis and leg spinner Ryan Burl getting a wicket each before the match was called off with the BCB XI on 56/2.
Speaking from Bangladesh yesterday, Rajput said they are looking to put behind them the poor run that has largely characterised the 2018 calendar.
Zimbabwe are keen to salvage what remains of their pride after suffering an ODI whitewash at the hands of Bangladesh last week. Chronicle
