BAN vs ZIM Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Dhaka, October 21 at 02:00 PM IST

Bangladesh will be feeling sore after the loss in the Asia Cup 2018 final and want to get over with a strong show against the visiting Zimbabwe. The two sides face-off in the first of the three One Day Internationals at Shere Bangla National Stadium on Sunday.

The visiting Zimbabwe come into the series after five straight loss to South Africa. However, they are quite close to full-strength, with Sikandar Raza returning to the mix. Despite conditions siding the hosts Bangladesh, Zimbabwe have enough quality in the ranks to overturn the odds.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, would be without their talismanic all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. The bowling department looks settled but their batsmen must deliver consistent performances to achieve what they want to.

Pitch, weather and venue stats

Shere Bangla National Stadium is not a high-run scoring venue. The dry surface could offer some purchase for the slow bowlers.

Last ODI result at the venue: Sri Lanka 221 all-out defeat Bangladesh – January 27, Bangladesh Tri-Nation Series at Dhaka 2018

BAN vs ZIM Dream11 Team

Wicket-keeper: There is uncertainty over Mushfiqur Rahim’s fitness. Brendan Taylor would be a better option.

Batsmen: Bangladesh’s Mohammad Mithun and Liton Das had a decent run in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2018. From Zimbabwe, Hamilton Masakadza and Peter Moor are the best fantasy pick in batsmen category.

All-rounders: The return of Sikandar Raza has bolstered Zimbabwe’s lineup. Sean Williams is another Zimbabwean to watch out for after exceptional performances against South Africa recently.  Bangladesh’s seasoned campaigner Mahmudullah is another excellent option.

Bowlers: Spinners from both side – Mehidy Hasan and Brandon Mavuta – can be handy in the conditions that assist spin more.
