BAN vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Abu Dhabi, September 26 at 05:00 PM IST
Pakistan and Bangladesh clash in the virtual semi-final, with the winner advancing to the Asia Cup 2018 final against India on Friday.
Bangladesh recorded a thrilling last over win against Afghanistan in their last affair after Mustafizur Rahman defended 7 in the last over. The challenge will be bigger against Pakistan and a show can help them edge past Pakistan.
Pakistan come into the game after a crushing defeat to arch-rivals India. Still hurting from the loss on Friday, Pakistan have to regroup here if they are to meet India in the final.
Pitch conditions: Abu Dhabi surface has produced totals of 200-250. The slow bowlers have got a purchase so far and this could be another battle between the batsmen and spinners.
Last ODI result at the venue: Bangladesh 249/7 beat Afghanistan 246/7 – 23 September 2018, Asia Cup 2018
Bangladesh can replace Nazmul Hossain Shanto with Soumya Sarkar after Steve Rhodes expressed his concern over former’s inability to score runs.
Pakistan might rest Mohammed Amir and Fakhar Zaman after the two failed to impress in the entire tournament.
Usman Khan or Junaid Khan might replace M Amir while young Shan Masood can make his debut in place of Fakhar Zaman’s.
Most probably, Junaid Khan will replace M Amir in today’s match.
Here’s how the two sides may lineup for Pakistan vs Bangladesh clash
Bangladesh Playing 11:
Wicket-keeper – Mushfiqur Rahim
Batsmen – Mahmudullah, Imrul Kayes, Liton Das (Doubt: Mohammad Mithun, Nazmul Hossain Shanto/Soumya Sarkar)
All-rounders – Shakib Al Hasan
Bowlers – Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Nazmul Islam
Pakistan Playing 11:
Wicket-keeper – Sarfraz Ahmed
Batsmen – Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq , Asif Ali (Fakhar Zaman/Shan Masood)
All-rounders – Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Nawaz
Bowlers – Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi (Doubt: Mohammad Amir/Usman Khan/Junaid Khan)
Bangladesh squad: Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mohammad Mithun, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Ariful Haque, Mahmudullah, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Hider Rony, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Mominul Haque, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Nazmul Islam, Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes.
Pakistan squad: Sarfraz Ahmed(c), Shoaib Malik, Haris Sohail, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Shan Masood, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Asif Ali, Mohammad Amir, Junaid Khan and Usman Khan.
Wicket-keeper: You must go for in-form Mushfiqur Rahim, who is two runs shy of completing 200 runs in the tournament.
Batsmen: Among the Bangladesh batsmen, Mahmudullah and Imrul Kayes came good with the bat against Afghanistan on Sunday, with both registering 70+ scores. Pakistan’s Babar Azam and Imam-ul-Haq are the two leading run-getters for the side.
All-rounders: Shoaib Malik played a match-winning knock against Afghanistan earlier in the tournament and would be a confident batsman on the wicket. Shakib Al Hasan is another who can make an impact with the bat as well as ball and should not be missed. The spinners have come into play on Abu Dhabi wicket, you can also pick the two Pakistan spinners, Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz.
Bowlers: Again, we are going with another spinner Mehidy Hasan for he can get help from the surface. Mustafizur Rahman would be our second pick basis his match-saving last-ball performance against Afghanistan, after which he will be quite confident. Plus, Pakistan’s pace battery has failed in the last couple of games and will be short on confidence.
Mushfiqur Rahim, Babar Azam and Shoaib Malik
