Touring Zimbabwe won the toss and opted to bat first in the one-off Test against Bangladesh at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Saturday.
Bangladesh and Zimbabwe faced each other in 16 Tests where Bangladesh won six, lost seven while the other three matches ended in a draw.
Charlton Tshuma is the newest face for Zimbabwe in Test cricket. The 26-year-old right-arm pacer is getting his Test cap today.
This Test will be marked as the 100th match between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe across the formats of international cricket.
Bangladesh played their last Test against Pakistan in Rawalpindi and suffered a humiliating defeat by an innings and 44 runs.
Tigers are eager to rise from the doldrums with this game, while Zimbabwe are looking forward to keep playing good cricket which they have done against Sri Lanka in a two-match Test series at home.
