BAN vs PAK Prediction: Bangladesh will face off against Pakistan in the second T20I of a three-match series on Saturday. The Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur will host the clash. The two sides are on the opposite ends of the confidence spectrum. Pakistan were excellent in the World Cup and cruised through the Group stage, only falling short against a spirited Aussie side in the semis. Bangladesh, on the other hand, lost five in a row in the Super 12 stage against the big boys.
Babar Azam is once again leading the side and they would be looking to hand debuts to some fresh players. Shakib Al Hasan continues to recuperate from a hamstring injury while Mushfiqur Rahimis rested. Skipper Mahmudullah will hope to lead from the front and provide the anchor role in the middle order. The Tigers are a formidable side at home and have recently beaten Australia.

Here is the Bangladesh vs Pakistan Dream11 Team Prediction and three players who can make an impact:
Babar Azam is an all formats player and possibly the most consistent batsman in the game at the moment. He has 2507 runs in 62 innings at an incredible average of 48 that includes 24 half-centuries and a hundred.
The express pace of Haris Rauf would be too hot to handle for the Bangladeshi batsmen. He has been a great find for Pakistan. Rauf has 37 wickets in 26 innings although he has been slightly on the expensive side.
Mohammad Naim has been Bangladesh’s in form batter in the shortest format. He should look to up the ante in the powerplay and play the longer innings. He has 744 runs in 29 innings that include four half-centuries.
BAN Playing XI
Mohammad Naim, Saif Hassan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed, Shoriful Islam
PAK Playing XI
Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Shoaib Malik, Haider Ali, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi
As is customary, the Mirpur wicket would keep low and sluggish. Runs should be difficult to come by, and spinners should have a good time bowling here. However, some resurfacing has just taken place, and we should expect a better track in the future. On this pitch, the average score is 120. Bangladesh vs Pakistan Today Match Prediction odds are slightly in favour of Pakistan.
If BAN bats first: 120-130
If PAK bats first: 140-150
