Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh (ZIM vs BAN) Today Match Prediction Preview
Welcome to the ZIM vs BAN Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. Zimbabwe will now face Bangladesh in the Bangladesh tour of Zimbabwe 2022 on 31 July 2022 at Harare. Keep on reading for more information on the ZIM vs BAN game.
Zimbabwe will host Bangladesh for the second time in two days in three-match T20Is. Bangladesh has arrived in Harare without four of its main players. Tamim Iqbal has retired from the format. Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim are rested for the series whereas, Shakib Al Hasan has taken a break from the game. This certainly will have an impact on the relatively young team which will be led by Nurul Hasan. It will be interesting to see how they cope against an in-form Zimbabwe side.
The hosts are entering into this series after winning the final of the T20 World Cup Qualifier recently. The team defeated the Netherlands by 37 runs in the final. This could act as a major boost for the side who have five wins in a row in this format.

Zimbabwe to win
Zimbabwe are likely to continue their good form here. However, all depends on how their all-rounder Sikandar Raza goes here. Raza was the star performer in the recently concluded T20 World Cup Qualifier. Also, Raza has faced most of this young Bangladesh attack as he was involved in Dhaka Premier League as well. Meanwhile, Bangladesh will rest their hopes on experienced Litton Das.
