BAN vs ZIM 1st Match Squad Comparison


Bangladesh has a well-balanced squad for the T20I Tri-Series. They recently suffered a big loss in the only Test match against Afghanistan. They would be looking to gain some confidence back with a win against Zimbabwe. Shakib Al-Hasan will lead Bangladesh with other batting all-rounders like Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain and Mohammad Saifuddin in the squad.

Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim are both important features in the playing XI for Bangladesh. In addition, Sabbir Rahman and Soumya Sarkar in the top 4 are also an integral part of the batting line up. Mustafizur Rahman will lead the pace attack which would include Mohammad Saifuddin and Mosaddek Hossain as well. Taijul Islam is the regular off-break bowler while Mahedi Hasan is another batting all-rounder option in the squad. Yeasin Arafat, a tall left-arm pacer will likely get a chance in the1st T20 match. He might open the bowling attack for Bangladesh alongside Rahman or Saifuddin.


Zimbabwe last played T20I on their tour of Ireland in July this year. They lost the ODI series while the T20I series tied with both sides winning a match each. In their last T20I, Zimbabwe had chased down 172 runs with fifties from Craig Ervine and Sean Williams at number 3 and 4. Batting all-rounder Hamilton Masakadza will be leading Zimbabwe in the Tri-Series and will be joined by 3 other batting all-rounders in the squad.

In addition to Brendan Taylor, Regis Chakabva and Richmond Mutumbami, two wicket-keeper batsmen have made it to the Zimbabwe squad. Kyle Jarvis and Chris Mpofu will have the responsibility of opening the bowling for the side. Tinotenda Mutombodzi, a right-arm leg-break bowling all-rounder would be crucial in the Dhaka pitch. Brendan Taylor, Craig Ervine, Sean Williamson, and Hamilton Masakadza are the experienced players in the Zimbabwe squad and the impact players in the Zimbabwe batting line-up.

Our Prediction for Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe

Bangladesh would win this match

Bangladesh has a stronger batting line-up and their bowlers can get the most out of the home conditions. Most of the players in the Bangladesh squad have performed well in the T20 league at home early this year. While Zimbabwe has quite some changes they’ll need time to adjust to in addition to the subcontinent conditions.

Bangladesh start as clear favorites to win on the top betting sites in India. However, the T20 format of the game makes for many exciting moments in the match where 1 over could change the game.
