Betting Tips
  • Sikandar Raza smashed 127 runs in 3 T20Is and he is our pick for Zimbabwe’s highest run scorer against Bangladesh. With the ball, Richard Ngarava has a strong ODI record and is a reliable wicket taker at international level. He is our tip for Zimbabwe’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Tamim Iqbal has scored 14 centuries in ODIs and knows his game inside out. He is a strong choice for Bangladesh’s highest run scorer in this game. Mustafizur Rahman took 2-24 from nine overs in the final ODI against West Indies and we expect him to be Bangladesh’s top wicket taker against Zimbabwe.
  • Sikandar Raza is a dominant player with bat and ball who enjoyed the IT20 series. The all-rounder is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.

ZIM vs BAN 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After a very closely fought IT20 series came to a conclusion on Tuesday, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh begin a three-game ODI series at the Harare Sports Club on Friday morning. The hosts won the IT20 series 2-1, winning the decisive match by 10 runs at the same venue which will host this series. Read on as we preview this first ODI. The game begins at 09:15 local time.

Zimbabwe’s will be full of confidence and elated after showing character and talent to win the IT20 series. However, they are not as strong in this format and the Tigers will be a far tougher opposition.

Bangladesh are far more comfortable in the longer white ball format and have a much stronger record. The captaincy and batting of Tamim Iqbal will take the team to a far higher level than in the IT20s.

ZIM vs BAN Match Toss Prediction

Bangladesh won the toss ahead of all three wins in the Caribbean and chose to field first. We expect both teams to want to field first in this game with any assistance for the pace bowlers likely to come in the early overs of the match.

ZIM vs BAN Pitch Report

There was a bit more in the surface for the bowlers than the batters during the IT20 series. However, with a patient approach, a team total of 290-300 should be attainable.

Weather Report

It could well be a chilly start at 09:15 but we expect the temperature to rise very quickly during the first innings of the game and to top out at 24 degrees.

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

Fast bowlers Blessing Muzarabani and Tanaka Chivanga will both miss this series through injury and will be the two main changes from their last ODI against Afghanistan in Harare in June. Brad Evans impressed in the final IT20 and we expect him to make his ODI debut in this match.

ZIM Key Players

  • Ryan Burl - Ryan Burl was the 2nd leading run-scorer from Zimbabwe in the T20Is. He scored 86 runs in 3 matches at a whopping strike rate of 145.76.
  • Sikandar Raza - The all-rounder took the Player of the Series Award in the recently concluded IT20 series. He will be considered a big threat in both disciplines by the Bangladesh team.
  • Richard Ngarava - The 24 year old left-arm pacer has taken wickets in eight of his last nine ODIs. He took three wickets against Bangladesh across two ODIs last year.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe have not won an ODI since they beat Sri Lanka by 22 runs at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in January. Since then, they have lost four games in this format on the bounce.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing 11

Wesley Madhevere, Innocent Kaia, Luke Jongwe, Dion Myers, Sikandar Raza, Regis Chakabva (c & wk), Ryan Burl, Milton Shumba, Tendai Chatara, Brad Evans, Richard Ngarava

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

As he did when he arrived in Guyana ahead of the three match ODI series against West Indies, Tamim Iqbal brings experience, leadership, presence and a huge amount of runs to the Bangladesh XI. Nurul Hasan picked up an injury in the second IT20 and we expect Liton Das to keep wicket in this match.

BAN Key Players

  • Tamim Iqbal - The 33 year old left-handed opener top scored on both sides with 117 runs across the ODI series in Guyana last month. He needs 57 runs to bring up 8000 ODI runs.
  • Liton Das - The right-handed top order batter scored 50 in the last ODI in Guyana. He hit the most runs for Bangladesh on this pitch during the IT20 series.
  • Mustafizur Rahman - The left-arm quick took wickets in each of the games during the IT20 series. He has a fine ODI record with 134 wickets to his name.

BAN Team Form

The Tigers have been playing good cricket and getting results in this format. They have won five of their last six ODIs.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tamim Iqbal (c), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Liton Das (wk), Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Anamul Haque Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Nasum Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Taijul Islam

Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh Prediction

Zimbabwe’s IT20 series win adds another dimension to the ODIs, and we expect the hosts to approach this opener with renewed belief. However, Bangladesh bounced back from a poor IT20 series to whitewash West Indies in ODI cricket last month and we are backing Bangladesh to win this match. 

Final Verdict

Bangladesh are favourites to beat Zimbabwe at odds of 1.40
