Zimbabwe v Bangladesh 1st ODI – Betting Tips and Predictions
Here are our free cricket tips and match predictions for this clash.
Zimbabwe put in a spirited showing in the Test match against Bangladesh but this will be another tough assignment, though an upset shouldn’t be ruled out.
Bangladesh to Have Highest Opening Partnership
Tamim Iqbal missed the one-off Test through injury but could return here to partner Liton Das at the top of the order.
Should he return then backing Bangladesh to have the highest opening partnership looks a great bet.
Zimbabwe have plenty of promising young players and good impact in the middle-order but consistency from their openers is still missing.
Bangladesh are priced at 1.844 with 1xBet to have the highest opening partnership in the game.
Zimbabwe Capable of an Upset
There is a lot to like about Zimbabwe in white-ball cricket recently. They lost series in Pakistan but did pick up wins in both T20I and ODI cricket to assure they avoided the whitewash.
They have a host of young players and are clearly capable of causing an upset in the shorter formats.
They also battled hard in the Test match before this and were in a handy position before big scores down the order took it away from them.
Their price of 4.52 with 1xBet for the outright win looks like it could have some value.
No Century to be Scored
Scoring could be tough in this game and backing no one to make a ton looks a good bet.
With the pitch slowing and pace taken off, it could be tricky to get the ball away.
Bangladesh could have a chance but Zimbabwe’s bowlers are capable of taking wickets on home soil.
The price of no century to be scored is 1.67 with bet365.
