Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20I Preview – Betting Tips, Latest Odds, Team News and Predictions – 11/03/2020
Bangladesh will be looking to wrap up another series win over Zimbabwe with a second victory Mirpur in the space of three days.
The home side dominated the previous ODI series between the two sides and then won the first T20I. They put on 200 in their 20 overs as Soumya Sarkar top-scored with 62.
Zimbabwe will be looking to continue their progress and will have been heartened by the way they fought back in the last clash. While they ultimately fell 48 runs short, they showed good spirit to recover 69-5 at one stage.
They have a host of young players still finding their way in the game and can continue to grow as a side here.

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20I – Team News
There is unlikely to be many changes from either side for this final T20I contest. Bangladesh could well stick to the same starting line-up after their latest victory, while Zimbabwe are not blessed with too many options.
Bangladesh are still without banned all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. They could potentially have a look at spinner Nasum Ahmed and young pace bowler Hasan Mahmud if they think the time is right.
Zimbabwe will be hoping for more from their openers in this contest. Their ability to build a platform for the likes of Craig Ervine, Sean Williams and Wes Madhevere could be key to how they get on.

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction
This promises to be another tough assignment for Zimbabwe despite some signs of encouragement in the previous clash.
Bangladesh will want to make sure they are heading in the right direction for the upcoming T20 World Cup and are not expected to take their foot off the gas any time soon.
Here we highlight some of the best bets on offer for the final game of the series.
We have predictions, free cricket tips and the latest odds to help guide betting decisions on the match.
Das to fire with the bat
Linton Das was in fine form in the previous ODI between these two teams. He smashed 176 in the third match and carried that form into the first T20I, where he hit 59 as Bangladesh secured the win.
He can continue that in this clash and looks a decent price to be Bangladesh’s top batsman. He is priced at 4.33 (10/3) with bet365 to take that honour.
Madhevere to show his potential
Wesley Mahhevere was one of Zimbabwe’s top performers in the ODI series and can make his presence felt in the T20 format too. He failed to fire in the first match on Monday but his price is far too big, especially considering how frail the visiting opening partnership has been.
He is priced at 8.00 (7/1) with bet365 to be his team’s top run-scorer and has to be worth a look at that price.
Best Bet: Wesley Madhevere to be Zimbabwe’s top batsman at 8.00 (7/1) with bet365
