After losing the test series on their home ground, Zimbabwe will be thriving to ensure a horrifying defeat for Bangladesh in T20I matches starting from the end week of July. It is a frightening situation for Zimbabwe as Mahmudullah from Bangladesh, who scored 150 runs in the test match, is now selected as the captain of the T20 squad.
Zimbabwe, on the other hand, is struggling hard to break the winning streak of Bangladesh in all formats. While their bowlers like Blessing Muzarabani have shown exceptional bowling performance in the previous matches, the team is still working on its batting side. After all the struggles and hard work, the Zimbabwe squad is all set to devastate the Bangladesh team in the finals of the T20 format.

BANG vs. ZIM: Squad Preview
The most probable squad combination for both of the teams is discussed below.
It is unlikely for Bangladesh to change their squad line-up at the final match of the T20 format. The players will be in good form and ensure better performance. Experimenting with something new with a change in player can be risky at this stage of the series.
Probable Squad: Mohammad Saifuddin, Shamim Hossain, Mahmudullah (capt), Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Afif Hossain, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Nurul Hasan, Mahedi Hasan, Aminul Islam, and Shoriful Islam.
Zimbabwe has limited options to the best batsman in their team, so chances for changing or replacing their batting line-up are extremely low. However, they can change one or two bowlers.
Probable Squad: Sean Williams (C), Blessing Muzarabani, Takudzwanashe Kaitano, Brendan Taylor, Dion Myers, Kevin Kazusa, Regis Chakabva, Tendai Chisoro, Tendai Chatara, Tanaka Chivanga, Luke Jongwe, Victor Nyauchi, Craig Ervine, Roy Kaia, Wellington Masakadza, Timycen Maruma, Richard Ngarava, Donald Tiripano, Milton Shumba, and Joylord Gumbie.
BANG vs. ZIM: Prediction For Top Performers
For the upcoming T20I format, Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah are the best probable performers in terms of batting. Both of these players from Bangladesh are in good form, experienced various victories against Zimbabwe, and know-how to face their bowlers well. Tamim has shown exceptional performance, especially in the final matches, which increases the probability of him being the top performer for the final match.
However, the best probable bowler for the series and 3rd T20 match is Blessing Muzarabani from Zimbabwe with his impeccable records and bowling performances in the last few games. He is determined and all set to destroy the batting line-up of the Bangladesh team in the finals.
BANG vs. ZIM: Prediction For Winner
The predictable winner of the 3rd T20I match is Bangladesh. Due to the pitch condition, which is batting-friendly, Bangladesh batsmen will enjoy striking the ball out of the ground. They have a good batting line-up which increases the chances of winning under such circumstances by 50% or more.
However, Zimbabwe can smash the winning streak of Bangladesh by improving their batting line-up, as their bowling is fine. Whoever wins the toss and chooses to bat first will likely win the match.
