Zimbabwe v Bangladesh 1st ODI – Team News

  • Dion Myers – The young batsman made solid contributions with the bat in the Test match and did well for Zimbabwe A recently. It will be interesting to see how he develops in this format.
  • Blessing Muzarabani – The Zimbabwe pace bowler is in good form at present and can excel in this format. His four wickets in the first innings of the Test match between these two will have given him confidence.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim – The Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman is unavailable for this match and the rest of the tour after returning home due to family reasons.
  • Mahmudullah – He has now retired from Test cricket but heads into this series on the back of his excellent unbeaten 150 in his final outing in the longer game.
  • Mehedi Hasan – The spin prospect took nine wickets in the Test match at this venue and is likely to have another big role to play in this ODI series opener.

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.
