Bangladesh are still without star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who is serving a ban. Mohammad Mahmudullah, a very capable captain, will continue to lead the XI.

A decent stretch of form for the Chattogram Challengers has seen spinner Nasum Ahmed be named in the T20I squad for the first time.

Zimbabwe have the same squad for the T20I series as the one that played in the ODIs. Chamu Chibhabha is still captain, with former skipper Brendan Taylor also included. All-rounders Sikandar Raza and Sean Williams will be key to Zimbabwe’s attempt to outdo the series favourites.

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction

Betting on cricket with some of T20 cricket’s smaller nations can occasionally turn up some interesting results. The shorter the match, the greater the chance of the underdogs coming out on top and upsetting the favourites. Are are a few good cricket betting tips for you.

First ball of the match

This is a particular favourite among cricket betting for those who like an outcome in the T20 markets from the very start of the match. You don’t really get this market in Test cricket or ODI cricket, but for T20s betting on a single (3.60) or two off the bat (15.00) can work well. You can also pursue long odds in cricket with a four or six off the first ball of the match with Betway.

To Chase Over 180 Runs and Team to Win

Bangladesh are priced at 2.87 in this market. If the bowl first, they will certainly look to have a go no matter what the are chasing. If Zimbabwe happen to put up a big total in conditions that should be good for scoring despite the sluggish nature of some decks in Bangladesh, the hosts have plenty of batting firepower to chase it down. If Bangladesh bat first, a pitch that only has to hold up for a maximum for 40 overs might get a bit easier to bat on, allowing Zimbabwe the chance to justify odds of 12.00 for them to chase down a 180-plus target.

Best Bet: Two off the bat from the first ball of the match at 15.00 with Betway
