Zimbabwe recalled two senior players as they looked to bounce back from a heavy defeat and keep their series with Bangladesh alive in Sunday's second one-day international at Queens Sports Club.

Experienced opening batsman Vusi Sibanda came in for Regis Chakabva at the top of the order, while fast bowler Kyle Jarvis replaced Tinashe Panyangara.

Jarvis was given an immediate chance to show what Zimbabwe had been missing in the first one-day match when captain Brendan Taylor won the toss and again opted to bowl first.

Bangladesh recorded their biggest one-day victory over Zimbabwe on Friday when they beat the hosts by 121 runs, and named an unchanged side for the second game of the three-match series.

Teams:

Zimbabwe: Brendan Taylor (capt), Vusi Sibanda, Hamilton Masakadza, Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Elton Chigumbura, Prosper Utseya, Shingirai Masakadza, Kyle Jarvis, Tendai Chatara.

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Ashraful, Mominul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Ziaur Rahman, Abdur Razzak, Robiul Islam, Shafiul Islam.
