zim vs ban Match Prediction & Analysis

Bangladesh are playing superbly and the hosts Zimbabwe look like a no match to them. They are winning matches on a trot with ease on this tour. They will look to win this match and seal the T20I series and look to test their bench strength in the third and final T20I match. Zimbabwe on the other hand will need to find a way to get across the line to keep the T20I series alive. They need their individuals to stand up and make big contributions with bat and ball.  

Teams Preview

Zimbabwe Preview

Wesley Madhevere (23 runs) and Regis Chakabva (43 runs) shared a brilliant 64-run partnership after an early wicket to set the platform. Dion Myers roated the strike masterfully for his 22-ball 35 runs but got no support from other end as they succumbed from 91/2 to 119/6 and ending with 152-all out.   

Blessing Muzarbani was superb in his first spell giving no width to the batsmen. Wesley Madhevere, Sikander Raza, and Wellington Masakadza bowled decently but none of their bowlers picked up wickets. Richard Ngarva`s 16-run 18th over sealed the match in Bangladesh’s favor after they made a comeback with 2 run-outs.  

Top players to bet on:

Regis Chakabva – Regis carried forward his form into the T20Is too scoring 43 runs off just 22 balls. He took on the bowlers smashing 5 boundaries and 2 sixes in his entertaining knock.

Blessing Muzurbani: Muzurbani had bowling figures of 3-0-8-0 in the first spell bowling perfect line and lengths. But he came back a little too late as the opposition needed just 11 runs in last 2 overs.  

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Regis Chakabva (wk), Tadiwanashe Marumani, Tarisai Musakanda, Dion Myers, Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza (c), Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Donald Tiripano

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh openers Soumya Sarkar (50 runs) and Mohammed Naim (64* runs) made fifties and sealed the match in their favor.  Mahmudullah (15 runs) and Nurul Hossain (16 runs) put on some crucial runs to build partnerships to finish the chase with ease. Their middle order was hugely untested in the last match.

Pace trio of Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammed Saifuddin, and Shoriful Islam were superb last night with combined figures of 11-0-71-7 to completely derail the opposition. Shakib finished his spell economically for 4-0-28-1. Their fifth bowling option went for 4-0-50-1 which might be a big concern for them.

Top players to bet on:

Mohammed Naim – Naim completed the chase with his unbeaten 64 runs off 51 balls with 6 boundaries to his name. He shared a 102-run opening partnership with Soumya Sarkar last night.

Mohammed Saifuddin – Saifuddin had bowling figures of 4-0-23-2 picking the wickets of Ryan Burl and Luke Jongwe. He will be looking to continue his good form with the ball in this match too.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahedi Hasan/Taskin Ahmed, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam.

Weather Conditions

Harare will have bright and sunny weather with partly cloudy conditions. But, we expect no rain appearance in this match.

Venue Details

Harare pitch has some assistance for the pacers especially when they executed their variations and slower ones into the pitch. Batsmen need to apply themselves before dominating the bowlers in this match. We expect the average scores around 160-180 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Bangladesh bowlers used the slowness of the track effectively owing to early moisture and pitch eased out in the second innings. We expect both captains to chase the target in this match.   

ZIM vs BAN Winning Prediction

Bangladesh are looking like a league ahead of the Zimbabwe currently and they will flying high with momentum and confidence at the moment. They are hugely untested or put on the tough situations so far. On the other hand, Zimbabwe needs a spark that could elevate the team`s morale and confidence. Their middle order and inconsistent bowling are their biggest worries this tour. We expect Bangladesh to win this match.

Bangladesh will win the match & the series 2-0
