Bangladesh Key Players (1st ODI vs Zimbabwe)
Zimbabwe Key Players (1st ODI vs Bangladesh)
Despite of losing the Only Test match against Bangladesh at home, the players from Zimbabwe cricket team are eyeing to lock this ODI series on victorious notes. This seems quite difficult, but aggression of host and learning from previous mistakes could be a fruitful and fertile combo to take on visitors.
The top order batsmen or openers of Zimbabwe have played responsibly and showed a class, but they need to improve their middle order batting lineup.
Milton Shumba, Takudzwanashe Kaitano and Brendan Taylor (Captain) are highly in form and they are in position to damage the opposition with bat and mind both. While Dion Myers, Timycen and Roy Kaia are also struggling with their batting performances as trio didn’t even enter in double figures.
Bowling has been the weakest department of Zimbabwe for the last couple of years as they failed to play a vital role even in chasing or defending the total. Zimbabwe needs to work a lot on polishing their bowling lineup. They can not only rely on their semi batting lineup which is only top order, but they should also focus on their bowling department to help them winning any crucial game.
Zimbabwe’s fruitful and important bowler Blessing Muzarabani always been a lone survivor for his team, but it’s not enough even when the opposition is harder and tough to handle. While Donald Tiripano and Victor Nyauchi, both of them will have to ensure their solid support with Blessing in order to take on the opposition.
Bang vs Zimb 1st ODI Prediction, Who Will Win?
The visitors defeated Zimbabwe with a huge margin of 220 runs in the recent Only Test match. Credit goes to the Bangladeshi middle order batting lineup, but their bowlers also performed up to the mark by picking up wickets earlier.
Keeping the limited over format of cricket in mind, it’s quite clear that Bangladesh is difficult for Zimbabwe to defeat. The bowling and batting both departments of Zimbabwe are struggling and under pressure and victory of Bangladesh is obvious.
