Bangladesh 'favourites' for tours
Bangladesh are in bullish mood ahead of their one-day internationals in Zimbabwe and Kenya later this month.

Their skipper Habibul Bashar insisted it would not be a surprise if his team were to win a one-day series for the first time on foreign soil.

He said: "We have displayed a lot of improvement in recent times, so we are favourites for both series. We believe we have enough firepower."

Coach Dav Whatmore warned: "We do need to adjust (to conditions) quickly."

Last year, Bangladesh defeated Zimbabwe 3-2 in a one-day series before going on to rout Kenya 4-0 in March to register their only two home series victories to date.

The first of five one-dayers against Zimbabwe is on 29 July before the tourists head to Kenya for a three-match series starting on 12 August.
