We are here for ZIM vs. BAN Today Match Prediction, 2nd ODI, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.


Bangladesh outclassed Zimbabwe in 1st ODI. They scored 276 on a slow track and bowled out Zimbabwe in just 28.5 overs for 121 runs. The last couple of years have been good for Bangladesh in ODIs. They have beaten quality sides like West Indies and Srilanka. They currently sit in 2nd position in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.

In this tour, Bangladeshi batters have shown application in building innings. Liton Das scored a marvelous century in the challenging conditions of Harare. Bangladesh will look to improve their game in initial overs, as they lost 4 wickets inside 20 overs. Taskin Ahmed is a huge positive for them in this tour. He picked 4 wickets in the test and again looked good in 1st ODI.

  • Bangladesh last lost series to Zimbabwe in 2013.
  • Shakib Al Hasan’s bowling average against  Zimbabwe is 20.15
  • Tamim Iqbal’s strike rate is only 69.08 after becoming captain in ODIs.

Top Batsmen of 1st ODI

  • Liton Das        102 runs at a strike rate of 89.47
  • Afif Hossain      45 runs at a strike rate of 128.57
  • Mahmudullah     33 runs at a strike rate of 63.46

Top Bowler of 1st ODI

  • Mohammad Saifuddin          1 wicket in 4 overs
  • Taskin Ahmed                       1 wicket in 5 overs


Zimbabwe started 1st ODI strong. They picked Bangladesh’s 4 wickets inside 20 overs. Blessing Muzarabani looked threatening with the new ball. Muzarabani’s bowling average was 19.42 last year. He troubled Babar Azam during last Pakistan’s tour of Zimbabwe. Muzarabani holds the key to Zimbabwe’s success.

Zimbabwe has been in an abysmal run of form in ODI’s for a long time. They even lost to teams like Ireland and Netherland. They are now ranked lower than Ireland and Netherland. They last won a series in 2019 against UAE. However, Zimbabwe had looked good in patches and even beat Pakistan in ODI on their tour to Pakistan in 2020. The return of Sikander Raza is a massive boost for them. Zimbabwe will look to take advantage of home conditions and put Bangladesh under pressure in the 2nd ODI.

  • Brendan Taylor has scored 1434 runs against Bangladesh in ODIs, including 2 centuries.

Pitch Report

Harare wicket always mostly favours fast bowlers and in 1st ODI also, Muzarabani and Jongwe exerted some pace and bounce from the wicket in early overs. After early overs, we saw it became better for batting but later on it was very two-paced. Captains will look to bat first as chasing would be hard on this wicket.

ZIM vs BAN– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Bangladesh is expected to win the match against Zimbabwe

KhelTalk experts feel that Bangladesh will win this match and go 2-0 against Zimbabwe. Bangladeshi players used their experience in 1st ODI. They looked more calm and composed. Zimbabwe’s record has been poor in ODIs lately. They even lost to Ireland and Netherland. Bangladesh’s squad is very experienced and will not take this match lightly as every point is important in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.

Top Batsman from Bangladesh – Liton Das

Liton Das’s career changed after promotion to open the innings. His average is close to 40 while opening the innings. He used to play rash shots after spending time on the wicket, but now he has become more mature. In the last ODI, he showed his maturity and scored a good century on Harare’s two-paced pitch. Surely after scoring a century, his confidence will be high, given his record at opening innings and recent form. Liton Das is our top batsman from Bangladesh.

Top Batsman from Zimbabwe – Brendan Taylor

Brandan Taylor has scored over 6,500 runs for Zimbabwe in ODIs. He is arguably the best batsman to ever played for them. Taylor’s record in Harare is good. He averages nearly 40 on this ground. In 1st ODI, he looked good until he top-edged one while playing a huge slog sweep to Shakib. Zimbabwe batting depends on him, and he has delivered most of the time. In the must-win match, he can show his class. He is our top batsman pick from Zimbabwe. 

Top Bowler from Bangladesh– Shakib Al Hasan 

Shakib became the leading wicket-taker for Bangladesh in ODIs in the previous match. He used all his experience and made most of the slow Harare wicket. He picked a fifer in 1st ODI. Shakib always has been the best bowler for Bangladesh in every format in every condition. Again responsibility will be on him to lead the bowling department. He is our top bowler pick for this match.

Top Bowler from Zimbabwe – Muzarabani
