Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - Bangladesh v Zimbabwe 2nd ODI

The 2nd match of the three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will be played at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet.


A victory for Bangladesh against a lesser-skilled Zimbabwe was always on the cards but that the team would register a 169-run victory was hardly anticipated. In the opening match of the series, Bangladesh showed that they were well ahead of Zimbabwe as they built on their Test victory with another dominating performance at Sylhet.

The team promoted Liton Das to open the batting who responded well with a 105-ball 126-run knock. However, the opener retired hurt midway after pulling a hamstring in order to be fit for the next game.

Mahmudullah, who returned after being dropped from the Test side, also played a good knock while Mohammad Mithun starred in the the lower middle order with a half-century.

Mashrafe Mortaza also looked impressive and picked up two wickets in probably his last international series. Returning from injury, Mohammad Saifuddin and Mehidy Hasan shared 5 wickets between them.

Under-19 sensation Wesley Madhevere and Tinotenda Mutombodzi were the top scorers for Zimbabwe while Chris Mpofu picked the most wickets for them.

The second ODI is not expected to pan out much differently.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Bangladesh - Tamim Iqbal, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taijul Islam, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mustafizur Rahman 

Zimbabwe - Chamu Chibhabha (c), Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza, Regis Chakabva, Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Donald Tiripano, Wesley Madhevere, Chris Mpofu, Carl Mumba
