ZIM vs BAN Betting Tips

  • Sean Williams top scored for Zimbabwe in their last IT20. He is a fine striker of the ball and he will look to dominate the Bangladesh bowlers early on. He is our tip for Zimbabwe’s highest run scorer. With the ball, Luke Jongwe is a consistent performer in home conditions and we are backing him to be the hosts top wicket taker.
  • Liton Das hit 49 runs from 41 balls in the final IT20 against West Indies. The opener should enjoy facing the bowling from the Zimbabwe attack and we expect him to be Bangladesh’s highest run scorer. Mustafizur Rahman is a genuine pace bowler and he is a strong choice to be Bangladesh’s top wicket taker in Harare.
  • We predict that Bangladesh will post a strong total in this game. As part of this we expect Liton Das will score over 20.5 runs.

ZIM vs BAN 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The first game of the three-match IT20 series between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh gets underway at the Harare Sports Club on Saturday afternoon. Zimbabwe won their last game in this format on July 17 in Bulawayo. Bangladesh were beaten in their last IT20 in Guyana on July 16. Read on as we preview this series opener. The match gets underway at 13:00 local time.

Zimbabwe have registered home IT20 wins over Singapore, Jersey, USA, Papua New Guinea and the Netherlands already this month. They are playing good cricket and have home advantage in this series.

Bangladesh have one of the weakest records in this format over the last ten months. However, they have only been playing the top teams and they will back their chances against Zimbabwe.

ZIM vs BAN Match Toss Prediction

The conditions will not vary much at all from innings to innings so there will not be an advantage in batting first or second. We predict that both captains will want to see how the pitch plays before batting and will field first.

ZIM vs BAN Pitch Report

We expect to see a dry and abrasive surface in Harare. The pitch will provide consistent bounce and will certainly turn for the spinners.

Weather Report

With a lack of humidity, there will be a fresh feel to the conditions. Sunny throughout and the temperature in the early 20s.

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

The hosts will be full of confidence after beating the Netherlands by 37 runs in Bulawayo only ten days ago. Although this will be a much tougher contest, we expect Zimbabwe to be unchanged from the side which produced the good earlier in the month.

ZIM Key Players

  • Sean Williams - the former skipper has a fine international record with both bat and ball. His top score in IT20 cricket is 60 not-out from September last year.
  • Craig Ervine - the captain had represented his country with distinction since making his international debut 12 years ago. He has scored 97 fours in this format.
  • Luke Jongwe - the 26 year old fast medium bowler has developed into a fine white ball player. He took wickets in all but one of the World Cup B tournament fixtures.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe come into this game in excellent form after winning the World Cup Qualifier B tournament earlier this month.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing 11

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

The Tigers ended their tour of the West Indies with a 3-0 win in the ODIs but suffered a 3-0 reverse in the IT20s beforehand. They are without star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and captain Mahmudullah for this series. Wicket-keeper Nurul Hasan will captain the side.

BAN Key Players

  • Liton Das - the right-handed opener is 20 runs away from bringing up 1000 IT20 runs. He has hit five half-centuries in this format.
  • Mehidy Hasan Miraz - the young all-rounder has made his mark on Test and ODI cricket already but is yet to do it in the shortest form. With Al Hasan absent, this series provides an opportunity for Miraz to emerge.
  • Mustafizur Rahman - the left-arm pace bowler has appeared in many of the top T20 leagues across the globe. His best figures in IT20 cricket are 5-22.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have been very poor in this format stretching back as far as the T20 World Cup last year. They have won only one of their last 11 IT20s.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Liton Das, Anamul Haque, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk) (c), Mosaddek Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan

🏆 Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh Prediction

Although Bangladesh are the favourites ahead of this game, there are three reasons for Zimbabwe to be optimistic. Firstly, the Tigers are without some of their top players; Secondly, Bangladesh have a poor record in this format and thirdly, Zimbabwe were too strong for all opponents earlier this month. Overall we are predicting a close match but are backing Bangladesh, who have the more talented players, to get the victory.
