Who Will Win Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe Match- Betting Tips
Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe
After a poor outing in South Africa, Zimbabwe will move to Bangladesh to play a 3-match ODI series. Bangladesh will draw confidence from their recent performance in the Asia Cup against India. Zimbabwe will be pretty confident of doing well against the Tigers as they started doing really well towards the end of their South Africa tour. Zimbabwe hasn’t won a game against Bangladesh since 2010 and they’ll be desperate to do well in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh is missing his two experienced players. While Tamim Iqbal suffered a hand injury in recently concluded Asia Cup, Shakib Al Hasan is out due to his finger injury. Nazmul Hossain and Liton Das are the most likely candidates to open the innings.
As seen during the Asia Cup, there will be a huge responsibility on the shoulders of Mushfiqur Rahim to maintain the pace of their innings. The likes of Mahmudullah, Mohammad Mithun, Imrul Kayes will need to play the supporting role well.
Despite the absence of Shakib Al Hasan, their bowling attacks look well settled. Mustafizur Rahman and Mashrafe Mortaza form the backbone. Mehidy Hasan and Nazmul Islam are likely to shoulder the load of the spin department.
Zimbabwe was whitewashed 3-0 by South Africa in their most recent ODI encounter. Overall, out of their last 23 matches, they’ve managed to win just 17. Before losing to the Proteas 3-0, they were thrashed by Pakistan 5-0.
Zimbabwean bowlers did pretty well against South Africa. Kyle Jarvis, Tendai Chatara, and Brandon Mavuta were impressive in South Africa. Mavuta was outstanding as he caused troubles for even the best batsmen of spin including Faf du Plessis. The surface of Bangladesh is likely to assist Zimbabwe’s bowling attack and they’ll be tough to deal with.
Although their batting failed in the last series, they are surely a capable unit. The return of Sikandar Raza will boost their batting lineup. The likes of Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor, and Sean Williams will have a huge role to play alongside Hamilton Masakadza and Sikandar Raza.
In the second half of the innings, the dew will make it difficult. The team winning the will field first.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
It’s forecasted to be an excellent day to play Cricket at Mirpur with no chances of rain. Being a day-night game, the dew factor will certainly make defending a little difficult. It’s going to be a good surface to bat on where batsmen will get value for their shots. The team batting first must be looking to put in excess of 270 runs on the board.
The story of Zimbabwe cricket hasn’t been bright in recent times. Bangladesh has impressed one and all with their recent surge in ODIs. They’re even more threatening at home and despite the absence of their star players. Playing at the familiar conditions at home will be advantageous for the Tigers and with experienced players in Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, and Mashrafe Mortaza, they are better-placed to win the opening encounter and start the series on a winning note.
