USA Team News

With the 2024 T20 World Cup now less than two weeks away, USA will use this series to ensure that their players are fully fit and ‘game-ready’ for the start of the tournament. This opening game will be the first time USA have taken on Bangladesh in a T20I.

USA Team Batting

Skipper and keeper-batter Monank Patel will be an important part of the home side’s batting line-up in this first T20I but the wicket which all the Bangladesh bowlers will be keen to take is Steven Taylor who is averaging 49.71 from his last eight T20Is.

USA Team Bowling

USA’s bowling attack is likely to be led by the 32 year old left-arm fast medium Saurabh Netravalkar who has been in excellent form in this format. All-rounder Nisarg Patel, who bowls slow left-arm orthodox, should also find this pitch to be responsive.

USA Team Form

USA come into this game after a five match T20I series against Canada which saw them win 4-0.

USA Predicted Playing 11

Steven Taylor, Monank Patel (c) (wk), Andries Gous, Aaron Jones, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Milind Kumar, Nisarg Patel, Jessy Singh, Nosthush Kenjige, Saurabh Netravalkar, Harmeet Singh

BAN Team News

After thrashing Zimbabwe 4-1 in a home T20I series earlier this month, Bangladesh will be looking to step up their preparations for the T20 World Cup with this series in the USA. However, the hosts are unlikely to cause Bangladesh too many problems even though the visitors will be without vice-captain Taskin Ahmed who is injured.

BAN Team Batting

Opener Tanzid Hasan comes into this series in excellent form after finishing the series against Zimbabwe as the leading run scorer across both sides. With a long batting line-up, we can expect Bangladesh to play in a very attacking manner.

BAN Team Bowling

Bangladesh will miss the right-arm pace of Taskin Ahmed who was in excellent form against Zimbabwe but in Shoriful Islam and Mustafizur Rahman they have two excellent left-arm pace bowlers. Mustafizur in particular has been in strong form over recent months.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh were beaten by Zimbabwe in their last T20I but they won their previous four games in the series.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tanzid Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Tanvir Islam, Shoriful Islam

🏆 USA vs Bangladesh Prediction

There is plenty of excitement in the USA and the Caribbean about the forthcoming T20 World Cup and this series should see a good number of spectators at Prairie View. USA are a developing country and do have talent but Bangladesh are a team full of high level internationals who all know their roles in the side. We are predicting a victory for Bangladesh on Tuesday.
