ZIM vs BAN Dream11 team 1st ODI: who will win today match prediction?


ZIM vs BAN dream11 today match prediction: Zimbabwe announced their squad one day prior to the series and that shows how unsettled they are. They don’t have the services of Sean Williams in ODIs as well. He proved to be a vital miss for Zimbabwe in the one off test which Bangladesh won easily.

As far as Zimbabwe’s batting is concerned, everything lies in the shoulders of the skipper Brendan Taylor for one more time who will be playing in the middle order.

Bangladesh will have their fare share of blow as the veteran wicket-keeper in Mushfiqur Rahim has flown to Bangladesh owing to personal reasons and as a result , he will be missing the ODI series. Bangladesh have a pretty strong squad otherwise and the likes of Litton Das and Mahmudullah are in very good form at the moment which should worry Zimbabwe big time.

ZIM vs BAN dream11 team

In dream11 prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams.

  • Tamim Iqbal averages 43 against Zimbabwe in this format of the game.
  • With no Mushfiqur Rahim in middle order, the onus will be on Shakib Al Hasan to milk the spinners in middle overs.
  • The pace attack of Zimbabwe is a promising one and they would like to use the new ball upfront to full effect.
  • This will be Sikandar Raza’s first competitive game after the surgery.
  • Bangladesh should bat freely at the top as they bat till 8 and there is no point in playing conservative cricket upfront.

Today match prediction

Who will win today match: The odds are in favour of Bangladesh who are a much superior side to Zimbabwe. Bangladesh are at the back of a thumping series victory over Sri Lankans and have pocketed crucial 20 points in the ODI super league. They wouldn’t want to miss some easy points on offer in this series as well. Shakib Al Hasan was a pale shadow of himself in the Sri Lankan series but its just a matter of time before he rediscovers his majestic form both with the bat and ball.

Zimbabwe have some fresh faces at the top of the order but their lower middle order is pretty settled with Brendan Taylor, Ryan Burl and Sikandar Raza occupying the crucial lower middle order spots.

Bet365- ZIM- 4.50, BAN- 1 20

Betway- ZIM- 4.00, BAN- 1.22

Today match score: Anything around 270 should make the team batting first feel confident about defending the target.

Today pitch report: The pitch helps pacers with the new ball and the batters will have to grind hard in middle when spinners are in operation. The wicket will test the skills of the batsmen.
