BAN vs PAK Today Match Prediction: Pakistan looked like the team to beat in the recently concluded WT20 in UAE. They were utterly dominant in the the group stages although they won all the important tosses, their bowling attack was brilliant to say the least.
Bangladesh bowed out of the competition with zero wins in the round 2 of the tournament and their inability to play fast bowling showed big time. With no Shakib Al Hasan for the series, they would have to play out of their skins to overcome a top Pakistan side. Bangladesh have dropped their veteran wicket keeper Mushfiqur Rahim from the T20I side for this series.

PAK- 5 wins and 5 defeats in 10 games
It was expected that Pakistan would rest their star fast bowler Shaheen Afridi for this series but they have decided to not take this Bangladesh side lightly and rightly so as just before the WT20, Bangladesh thrashed Australia who are the current WT20 champions 4-1 in the 5 match T20I series.
This might well be the end of the road for Mohammad Hafeez as Pakistan have dropped the veteran and are looking to blood in the talented youngster in Haider Ali into the side. Imad Wasim is rested for this series as well. .
In BAN vs PAK dream11 prediction, the odds are firmly in favour of the visiting side in Pakistan but this was how the odds were favouring Australia when they started the 5 match T20I series earlier this year. Bangladesh are a pretty dangerous side in their home and are known to prepare horrible tracks for batting but that tactic might not work against Pakistan as Pakistan have some brilliant players of spin bowling to go with top quality spinners to restrict Bangladesh big time.
A decent track is expected for this game which will serve Bangladesh well in the longer run keeping next WT20 in mind.
Bet365- BAN- 3.50, PAK- 1.30
