The International Cricket Council (ICC) suspended Zimbabwe in July over a failure to keep the sport
The International Cricket Council (ICC) suspended Zimbabwe in July over a failure to keep the sport free from government interference, putting the cricketing future of the country under a cloud.
But the ban is effective only in events hosted by the ICC, allowing the team to participate in the Bangl
adeshi tournament set to begin Friday, featuring the hosts and Afghanistan.
"Though I know the both sides are very strong, we have a lot of successes in Twenty20 cricket here. So I don't think we are far behind them at all." Zimbabwe's confidence was boosted further after Wednesday's seven-wicket win in a warm-up match against some of the Bangladeshi Twenty20 squad.
However, Masakadza said he was well aware that the matches going forward would be more challenging.
