After a long hiatus from international cricket owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe have decided to play some official matches. The two cricket boards decided on a bilateral series consisting of one Test match, three ODIs, and three T20 matches. If you are thinking of placing a few bets on the ODI and T20 matches, here are some in-depth match predictions and analyses that you will find helpful.
Bangladesh T20 Squad
First of all, you should take a look at the Bangladesh T20 squad, who have been in terrific form. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has already published the provisional squads for all three formats. Here are some highlights that will help you place some profitable cricket bets online.
Shakib Al Hasan
The Tigers are going to be very confident in this series, since star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has made a return to the squad. He will be playing in all three formats, and will lend solidity and dependability to the three squads.
The 27-year old wicketkeeper-batsman has been having a fantastic domestic season, and that is one of the main reasons why he has been retained in all squads. After this inclusion in the squad, he has a chance to prove himself to the selectors.
Despite being dropped from the Test team, the star pacer will be featuring in the ODI and T20 squads. He is shouldering a lot of responsibility and will be the main offensive bowler for the Tigers. He is expected to perform very well.
Zimbabwe T20 Squad
The Zimbabwe cricket team can be counted on to belt out some consistent plays, even though they don’t get very far during the World Cups. However, this season, the side can be expected to pull off a narrow win against the superior, yet stumbling and inexperienced Tigers squad.
The captain and most experienced member of the squad is Brendan Taylor, the 35-year old is one of the finest batsmen in the team. Taylor is probably going to assume the role of wicketkeeper during the 3 T20 matches that have been scheduled.
Tendai Chatara is a 30-year-old pace bowler and one of the finest fast bowlers that Zimbabwe has in their squad right now. He has only played 22 T20 matches until now, but he has still managed to take 26 wickets in them.
Perhaps the most fearsome player to watch out for on the Zimbabwean side is Dion Myers, a 19-year old cricketer. He played his first test match against Bangladesh during this series, and managed to hold his own very well against the experienced team.
These are the players that you need to watch out for on both sides. The ODIs are going to be packed with action, and the T20 matches are also going to be a lot of fun. With the right sportsbook site, you can make a lot of money.
