ZIM vs BAN Dream11 Prediction: Zimbabwe will take on Bangladesh in the first ODI at the Harare Sports Club on Friday, 16 July. Zimbabwe will look to start the series well after a heavy 220-run defeat in the one-off Test match. However, they will have to make do without the services of regular captain Sean Williams and Craig Ervine due to covid-related protocols. Meanwhile, Bangladesh would be keen on extending their dominance across formats. They have been in decent form in the 50-format having won five out of the nine ODI Super League matches till date.

The Harare Sports Club, Harare tracks are generally on the slower side but decent amount of runs can be scored if the openers see off the new ball. There is generally a lot of assistance for the first 5-10 overs for the pacers due to the moisture in the air. The track should ease out as the match progresses while there will be enough assistance for the spinners too.

Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain and Differential Pick
Tamim Iqbal: Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal would be an obvious captaincy option due to his record against Zimbabwe. Even in the last ODI series between the two sides, Tamim hammered 310 runs from three matches. He made a fluent 66-run knock in the warm-up match against Zimbabwe Select XI.
Shakib Al Hasan: Bangladesh’s superstar all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan could be in for big points as he will bat at No.3 and also bowl his full quota of ten overs. Shakib struggled especially with the bat in Bangladesh’s most recent ODI series against Sri Lanka but Zimbabwe should pose a lesser threat to him. He made 37 runs in the warm-up match against Zimbabwe Select XI.
Brendan Taylor: Zimbabwe’s stand-in skipper Brendan Taylor looked in great touch during the one-off Test against Bangladesh by scoring twin fifties. The experienced campaigner is also most likely to don the gloves if Regis Chakabva doesn’t find a place in the starting line-up.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Brendan Taylor, Liton Das
BATSMEN: Tamim Iqbal, Mosaddek Hossain, Wesley Madhevere
ALL-ROUNDERS: Shakib Al Hasan, Sikandar Raza, Mehidy Hasan Miraz
BOWLERS: Taskin Ahmed, Blessing Muzarabani, Mohammad Saifuddin
