Bangladesh are favourites going into the second ODI against Zimbabwe. The visitors have a better head-to-head against the Chevrons and have dominated them in recent times.

Despite the swashbuckling win in the first ODI, Zimbabwe has struggled against Bangladesh in ODI cricket for a while now and will find it extremely difficult to compete against the Bangla Tigers.
