BAN vs ZIM Fantasy Cricket Tips

Bangladesh Heavy Fantasy XI

Bangladesh will rely heavily on its spinner Mahedi Hasan and pace unit with the ball in hand.  Taskin Ahmed, Saifuddin and Shoriful will be key with the ball. Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, Tanzid Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad are other Bangladeshi players that are dependable and may score plenty of fantasy points.

Zimbabwe Heavy Fantasy XI

Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, and Craig Ervine are the best bets for Zimbabwe's performance in Bangladesh. However, Blessing Muzarabani and Richard Ngarava have been exposed to these situations while playing in the BPL and may be useful as well.  Brian Bennett has been sensible with the bat as well.

BAN vs ZIM Winner Prediction

Bangladesh are the favourites to come out on the top as Zimbabwe are not too familiar in these conditions.

BAN vs ZIM Top Player Picks

Tanzid Hasan (BAN): The young gun has been brilliant with the bat for Bangladesh in the past one year. He has been a sigh of relief and has an array of stroke-play to counter the bowlers inside powerplay. He has scored 85 runs from two matches at a strike rate of 128.79 in the series.  

Taskin Ahmed (BAN): The tall pacer has brought his experience into play effectively. Taskin has bagged five wickets from a couple of games so far, averaging 6.40 with the ball.  

Clive Madande (ZIM): The wicketkeeper-batter has shown some resilience with the bat in the ensuing series so far. He scored a forty-plus in the first T20I and stabilised the stage for his side to steer them to a respectful total. 

Brian Bennet (ZIM): The No. 3 for the African nation is an exciting prospect to look forward to. He has the best batting average for Zimbabwe in the ongoing series with the number reading 60. Bennet also strikes over 135 with the willow.

BAN vs ZIM Differential Picks

Sikandar Raza (ZIM): The all-rounder will be looking to make an impact with both bat and ball. He has been slightly below par during IPL 2024 for the Punjab Kings and has also continued the poor outing in the ongoing series. However, the Pakistan-bred has the ability to win matches with his three-dimensional skills. 

Towhid Hridoy (BAN): The middle order batter is one of the reliable with the willow for Bangladesh. He was the player of the match in the last game and has smashed 70 runs from two games so far.
