Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 3rd T20 Match Prediction 2024

BAN vs ZIM 3rd 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

There were no changes to the XI for the hosts from the opening T20I to the second game of the series and with all five bowlers getting through their four allocated overs, it does not look like there are any injuries. We predict the same XI to be selected for this clash.

BAN Key Players

  • Litton Das – the 29 year old opener only made 1 run in the first T20I but looked in better form on Sunday with two fours and a six in his 23. We expect him to be striking the ball well again in this match.
  • Towhid Hridoy – the top order batter is making the number four position his own for Bangladesh and hit five boundaries in his second successive not out innings of the series.
  • Shoriful Islam – The opening bowler had to wait until the 18th over of the innings on Sunday to get his first wicket of the series but now he is off the mark Zimbabwe’s batters should beware!
  • Taskin Ahmed – After dismissing five different Zimbabwe batters so far in the series, we can expect the quick bowler’s confidence to be sky high ahead of this third T20I.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh come into this third T20I of the series with three wins from their last four in this format.

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

For the second game in a row, Zimbabwe opted to hand out a debut and this time it was Johnathan Campbell who came in at international level for the first time. The experienced pair of Ryan Burl and Sean Williams were both left out and we are not expecting them back for this game.

ZIM Key Players

  • Sikandar Raza – The batting all-rounder is approaching 250 international matches and he will be looking to all of that experience to produce a big score in this match.
  • Brian Bennett – The 20 year old all-rounder produced his best international performance to date in Sunday’s match with 44 not out from only 29 balls.
  • Richard Ngarava – The left-arm paceman took the fourth wicket of the innings in the second T20I and the team management will be looking to him to strike earlier in this game.
  • Luke Jongwe – The all-rounder has failed with the bat across both games so far but has combined figures of 3/49 from the two matches and has dismissed Bangladesh’s captain twice.

ZIM Team Form

Zimbabwe have looked not up to the required level so far in this series and have now lost three T20Is in a row.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing 11

Joylord Gumbi (wk), Tadiwanashe Marumani, Craig Ervine, Brian Bennett, Sikandar Raza (c), Clive Madande, Johnathan Campbell, Luke Jongwe, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava, Ainsley Ndlovu

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe Betting Odds

Who will win Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 3rd T20 Match?

Although the second game of the series was closer than the first match, Bangladesh were still by far the stronger side in both innings. We expect them to be the top team once again in this T20I.

🏆 Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe Prediction

Although it was another heavy defeat, there were positives for Zimbabwe on Sunday with Johnathan Campbell’s debut and Luke Jongwe’s bowling. If Sikandar Raza and Richard Ngarava can put in strong performances in this T20I then they will have a chance. But that said, Bangladesh are a good side at home and they have no obvious weaknesses. We are backing Bangladesh to win again in the third T20I of the series.
