Zimbabwe v Bangladesh 1st Test – Match Preview

Zimbabwe are a team on the rise but that has mainly been seen in the white-ball game.

Bangladesh haven’t played a great deal of Test cricket recently but did suffer losses against Sri Lanka and the Windies at the start of the year.

Where: Harare Sports Club, Harare

When: Wednesday, 07 July 2021

Start time: 13:00 IST (07:30 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Previous matches at this ground have offered plenty to pace-off bowling and this will likely be a similar story. The dry conditions could see the pitch break up as the clash develops.

Weather conditions: There should be some cloud cover for this fixture, which means temperatures will also drop to around 20 degrees. There is only a very small chance of rain.

Zimbabwe v Bangladesh 1st Test – Team News

  • Sean Williams – The talented captain will have another big role to play for the home side. He didn’t feature too often in recent short format matches but will welcome this return to Test cricket.
  • Brendan Taylor – Taylor will add more experience to the line-up and heads here in decent form after the T20I series against Pakistan.
  • Blessing Muzarabani – The young pacer took wickets in the Test matches against Pakistan and then helped Multan to PSL glory soon after.
  • Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahman – Both men are a doubt for this after picking up injuries. T20 skipper Mahmudullah has been drafted in as cover.
  • Shakib Al Hasan – The all-rounder is available after his stint in the IPL and could have an important role should any more injuries hit.

Zimbabwe v Bangladesh 1st Test – Betting Tips and Predictions

Here are our free cricket tips and match predictions for this clash.

While Bangladesh have found consistency hard to come by recently, they should have enough to pick up a win in this match.

Looking at other markets is the best way of finding some value bets.

Back Blessing for Top Bowler

Zimbabwe may have lost their previous Test series against Pakistan but there was plenty of encouragement for Blessing Muzarabani.

He took four wickets in the first match and three in the second, both at this venue.

That earned him a move to the PSL with Multan Sultans where he went on to bag 10 wickets in six matches as his team lifted the trophy.

His price of 3.0 with bet365 looks a great bet.

Mominul for Top Batsman

Mominul Haque could be a good value bet in the top Bangladesh batsman market.

The skipper was superb in the drawn 1st test with Sri Lanka in April. His first-innings 127 was encouraging and put his team in a good position.

He made 39 and 42 in the 2nd Test and will have another big role to play. He could also be shifted up the order a little if injuries to both Tamim and Mushfiqur keep that vital duo out.

He can be backed at 4.0 with bet365 to be his team’s top run-scorer.

Hasan Miraz to Shine Again

Mehidy Hasan Miraz has been in excellent form recently and can take more wickets in Harare.

The spinner did well against Sri Lanka and looks to be improving all the time. He took three wickets in a warm-up match at this venue and will have taken plenty from that experience.

He has been playing in the Dhaka Premier League before this outing and looks ready to make his mark again.

The 23-year-old is priced at 3.25 with bet365 to be his team’s top bowler.
