Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd ODI – Team News

This will be seamer Mashrafe Mortaza’s second-last match as captain of the ODI team, according to the Bangladesh Cricket Board. He will lead a side that will likely contain Mohammad Saifuddin and Liton Das. Saifuddin is nursing a back injury, while Das suffered cramps in the series opener.

It’s probable that Craig Ervine and Sean Williams will come into the Zimbabwe XI, with Tinashe Kamunhukamwe and Regis Chakabva sidelined to accommodate the experienced pair. Williams will also be able to contribute with the ball in conditions conducive to his spin.

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd ODI – Betting Tips and Prediction

Free cricket betting tips for smaller ODI series can be more attractive than those for bigger tournaments. Surprise results can turn up in head-to-head battles, even if the outright markets go as cricket predictions suggest. Here are some of the stronger Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe markets ahead of their second ODI.

Das to do it again in Sylhet

LeoVegas Sport have Das priced at 4.34 to be the top batsman for Bangladesh in this match. His 126 not out in the series opener was superb. Alternatively, there’s fellow opener Tamim Iqbal at 3.75 in the same market. Das is also offered at 8.00 to be Player of the Match.

Williams to win with the ball

The return of Williams to the Zimbabwe XI could be vital. He has a wealth of experience with the bat and his role with the ball is often underrated by the opposition. That slow left-arm spin has already claimed 71 ODI wickets and Williams is priced at 6.00 to be Zimbabwe’s top wicket-taker in this match.

Best Bet: Liton Das to be Bangladesh’s top batsman at 4.34 with LeoVegas Sport
