ban vs zim Match Prediction & Analysis

It was a heartbreaking and gut-wrenching loss for Zimbabwe as they came so close to winning the 2nd ODI against Bangladesh at Sylhet but couldn’t cross the line. Chasing a target of 323, Zimbabwe were almost down and out when a whirlwind of a knock by Donald Tiripano led them to need 6 off the final delivery.

Zimbabwe eventually lost the game by just 4 runs and Bangladesh have thus sealed the series 2-0. The home side must be relieved to have clinched the game and the series but will certainly have to ponder over their poor bowling effort. Zimbabwe, meanwhile, will be delighted with their fight and will be looking to repeat the performance so that they can end the series with a win.

Teams Preview

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh put up another solid batting performance in the 2nd ODI by posting a formidable 322-8 on the board. The best part of the batting show was that opener Tamim Iqbal, who had been struggling for form over the last few matches, came roaring back to form with a magnificent hundred. His career-best 158 off 136 balls set the game for the home side. The other two seniors of the side, Mushfiqur Rahim (55) and Mahmudullah (41), also made vital contributions and this has made their batting unit really dangerous now with Liton Das also in good touch at the top.

Bangladesh had rested their key bowlers, Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammad Saifuddin, for this game and it showed in the unit's poor show. Al-Amin Hossain was belted for 85 runs in his 10 overs while Shafiul Islam was taken for 76 runs in his 9.

The only impactful performances were from the spinners, Mehidy Hasan (1-25) and Taijul Islam (3-52). It remains to be seen if the team brings back Mustafizur and Saifuddin for the last game or will give the others another chance.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah, Mohammad Mithun, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Taijul Islam, Shafiul Islam/Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain/Mustafizur Rahman

Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe was let down by another inconsistent show. Were it not for that sensational unbeaten 28-ball 55 by Donald Tiripano, they would have suffered another heavy loss. However, Tripano showed the depth Zimbabwe has if they can play to potential.

Another positive from the last match was that some players got good scores under their belt with opener Tinashe Kamunhukamwe scoring a fine 51 along with Wesley Madhevere's 52. Sikandar Raza top-scored with an aggressive 66 and the senior's form will be vital in the last match.

The team will now be hoping that their other two seniors, Brendan Taylor and captain Sean Williams, deliver soon. It is their bowling which is really letting Zimbabwe down as this was the second consecutive game where they gave away 300-plus runs. Carl Mumba, Charlton Tshuma, Donald Tiripano and Sikandar Raza have all done well only in patches and have leaked runs regularly. Wesley Madhevere showed some promise with his off-spin in the last game and it would be interesting to see if he can do better now that he has gotten used to the conditions.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Regis Chakabva, Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams (c), Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Donald Tiripano, Carl Mumba, Charlton Tshuma

Weather Conditions

As has been seen in both the matches played at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in the series, the pitch is absolutely brilliant for batting. Batsmen can hit through the line as the ball comes nicely on to the bat and a flurry of fours and sixes is again expected. Spinners, however, will have a part to play. The same venue has been used for the last two games and the pitch would slow down a little now giving the chance for the spinners to get some purchase. The weather for the match day will be mostly cloudy with a thunder storm expected.

Venue Details

In the two matches played at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in this series, totals of 300-plus have been achieved on three occasions already. For the final game, expect another high-scoring game as the pitch wouldn't have changed much. Another 300-plus total by the team bating first cannot be ruled out.

Toss: To Bat

In both the matches of the series so far, the team batting first has won the game. Thus, the team winning the toss will look to bat first.

BAN vs ZIM Winning Prediction

Zimbabwe showed great resolve in the last game and almost stole a sensational win. If they can take lessons from that performance and harness their talents to perform ably on the day, they can really push Bangladesh.

That being said, Bangladesh still remains a very tough outfit at home to beat. Their batting strength is too strong with plenty of match-winners who can take the game away. And while their bowling might suffer if Mustafizur doesn't play, their spinners are doing a wonderful job.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, does possess talent with the bat but is really lacking in the bowling department. Thus, with the home advantage, and their overall all-round team strength in these conditions, Bangladesh will be favorites to clinch the final ODI as well.

Bangladesh to win!
