Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Match Prediction 2024

BAN vs ZIM 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The second T20I of the five match series takes place on Sunday evening in Chattogram as Bangladesh host Zimbabwe. This game comes only two days after the series opener which was won by 8 wickets with 28 balls remaining by Bangladesh. Read on as we preview this match. The T20I gets underway at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium at 18:00 local time on May 5th.

After such a strong start to the tournament, confidence will be high in the home changing room ahead of this game. Bangladesh are always a tough side to play against in home conditions and particularly so in white ball cricket against an inconsistent side like Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe have lost heavily in their last two T20Is and will need some of their experienced players to step up in this game after most of them turned in poor performances on Friday. However, even with the whole team raising their game, they may struggle to be competitive in these conditions.

BAN vs ZIM Match Toss Prediction

Bangladesh won the toss and chose to field first before winning at this venue on Friday. Therefore, we predict that both sides will want to field first and chase in this game.

BAN vs ZIM Pitch Report

The wicket at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is certainly a lot better for batting on than Zimbabwe’s total of 124 all out would suggest. A par total is certainly over 165 on a pitch with good carry.

Chattogram Weather Report

Scattered thunderstorms are forecast throughout Sunday in Chattogram. It will be very humid from start to finish with the temperature hovering around thirty degrees.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

Tanzid Hasan was the only debutant for Bangladesh in the opening game of the series and we expect the hosts to stick with the same XI for this match. No injuries have been reported and we expect the Tigers to want to wrap up a series win before they start experimenting.

BAN Key Players

  • Tanzid Hasan- it was an exceptional debut for the opener who hit eight fours and two sixes in his unbeaten innings. He has now hit three international half-centuries.
  • Towhid Hridoy- the 23 year old right-hander will be looking forward to batting on this pitch again after posting 33 not out from 18 balls on Friday.
  • Shoriful Islam- the left-arm medium fast bowler conceded 9.00 runs per over in the opening game of the series and went wicketless. However, he has been Bangladesh’s best bowler over the last 18 months.
  • Taskin Ahmed- the right-arm fast bowler comes into this game after dismissing Sean Williams, Ryan Burl and Clive Madande on his way to picking up the Player of the Match Award in the first T20I.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have now won two of their last three T20Is with both victories by a winning margin of 8 wickets.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tanzid Hasan, Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Towhid Hridoy, Mahmudullah, Jaker Ali (wk), Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Rishad Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

After playing in 12 previous ODIs for Zimbabwe, keeper-batter Joylord Gumbie made his T20I debut in the opening game and after he top scored from the top five, his place looks secure for the series. Sikandar Raza has a fully fit squad to select from.

ZIM Key Players

  • Craig Ervine- the 38 year old opener was one of four ducks for Zimbabwe in their batting innings on Friday and he will get an early opportunity to make up for it in this game.
  • Clive Madande- the number six produced the highest score for Zimbabwe in the opening match and will be looking to build on his six fours from that T20I in this game.
  • Sikandar Raza- the skipper had a day to forget on Friday as he got a golden duck before sending down four wicketless overs. However, he is one of Zimbabwe’s all-time greatest players.
  • Richard Ngarava- the pace bowler was the most economical on the side in the first game but he has gained a reputation as a strike-bowler and he will be keen to show that in this match.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe have lost four of their last five T20Is although their one victory during this streak was against Sri Lanka.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing 11

Joylord Gumbi (wk), Craig Ervine, Brian Bennett, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza (c), Clive Madande, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava, Ainsley Ndlovu

Who will win Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Match?

Zimbabwe do have two or three top class players but they will all need to be on form if they are to come close to beating this Bangladesh side on home turf.

🏆 Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe Prediction

Not a lot went right for Zimbabwe in the opening game of the series and they will know that they under-performed with the bat. However, Bangladesh have a strong bowling line-up and their most impressive bowler from the last 18 months had an off-day so we can expect them to perform better as well in this game. Overall, it all points to another victory for Bangladesh in this T20I on Sunday.
