Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe – Previews and Betting Tips
It was a disappointing day for Bangladesh at the SCG as South Africa had different plans for them. Being asked to bowl first, Bangladesh’s bowling display went completely south. Courtesy of Rilee Rossouw's 56-ball 109, South Africa smashed 205/5 in their 20 overs. In a rather disappointing first half, Skipper Shakib al Hasan bagged 2/33 in 3 overs.
As the tigers came out for the chase, they smashed Rabada for 17 runs off the very first over. However, it all went downhill since there for them. They kept losing one wicket after the other as Anrich Nortje’s 4/10 helped bundle out Bangladesh for 101. Litton Das top scored with a 31-ball 34 alongside Soumya Sarkar’s 6-ball 15 cameo. This loss got Bangladesh’s performance tally to 4 losses out of 5 games.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe are walking into this encounter with a fantastic win over Pakistan. Choosing to bat first at Optus stadium, Zimbabwe failed to put up a huge total. Sean William top-scored with 31 off 28 balls in a total of 130/8. Brad Evans & Craig Ervine contributed with 19 runs each but couldn’t do much.
However, Zimbabwe made what seemed like an easy run-chase very difficult. Sikandar Raza’s 3/25 and Brad Evans' 2/25 had Pakistan struggling. With 11 required off the final over, Evans took the onus on his shoulders. He started poorly but managed to pull his side back into the game. A run out of the last ball meant a historic win for Zimbabwe.
Encounters like these always gather a lot of confidence among the players. Hence, going into this encounter, we predict Zimbabwe to win this fixture.

It will take more than just a team effort to get the Bangla tigers out of the 104-run defeat. They will be dejected entering this encounter but always could bounce back and fight hard. Here are a few of the players that can make miracles happen. Afif Hossain & Litton Das have the responsibility of the batting department on their shoulders. They have scored 249 and 223 runs in the past few games at a strike rate well above 130. As for the bowlers, Taskin leads the chart with 10 wickets in his past 8 games. Alongside him is Hasan Mahmud, who has contributed exceptionally well with 7 wickets in 5 games. If a win is what they desire, these players can make it happen.

Zimbabwe had come a long way from being banned by the ICC a year ago to clinching a memorable win against Pakistan at the world cup. Although, the job is not done as their next assignment is Bangladesh. For this, Sikandar Raza is all set with his all-around brilliance. With 313 runs in just 10 matches, Raza also has 15 wickets under his belt at an economy of just 6.13. Supporting him with the bat is Wesley Madhevere who has 228 runs in his past 10 games. In the bowling unit, it’ll be blessing Muzarabani who has been stealing the limelight with his bowling. In the past 6 games, he has bagged 9 wickets and will prove to be very lethal against Bangladesh.
Squad: Regis Chakabva(wk), Craig Ervine(C), Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza, Wesley Madhevere, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Richard Ngarava, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani
