ZIM vs BAN Prediction - Aug 05, 2022

Zimbabwe would be thrilled after winning its T20 series against Bangladesh and will now be hoping for more success in the ODI's. Bangladesh has come in for some intense criticism after its loss, not only for its lack of results but the lack of intent that it showed.

The ODI's, though, are possibly Bangladesh's best format. They got into this match as the favorite to win at every single cricket betting site that we could find.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh 1st ODI 2022. The match is going to be played at the Harare Sports Club, Harare on the 5th of August 2022.

ZIM vs BAN Team Previews


Interestingly, no official Zimbwbe ODI squad has been announced by the board up until the time of this writing, just about 24 hours before the start of the match! This leads us to believe that the core of the team is going to be same as what turned out for the ODI's.

Sikandar Raza, Sean WIlliams, and Craig Ervine are going to be major players to watch out for with Ryan Burl also expected to get a lot of attention after his big-hitting exploits in the T20 series.

The batting lineup for Zimbabwe is decent without being exceptional. They will take in the confidence of having done well in the T20's but there is no doubt that Zimbabwe's recent ODI record is poor. It has lost its previous four matches in ODI cricket and has also lost its previous five to Bangladesh.

The bowling shortcomings only become more pronounced as the length of the match increases. This is why the possible presence of Blessing Muzarabani should be of a lot of interest to bettors since he can make a big difference.

Bangladesh won the ODI series in West Indies 3-0 and has generally done well in the format. The pressure is on the team now to start showing some results on the field and not just talk outside of it. A couple of important senior members will make a comeback into the lineup and that should help matters as well.

Mahmudullah, Tamim Iqbal, and Mushfiqur Rahim are all going to be available for selection in this series. That helps add a lot of talent to the batting lineup. We thought Bangladesh's bowling was poor during the death overs but quite decent otherwise.

Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, and Taskin Ahmed are the bowlers that are expected to do the most damage.

ZIM vs BAN Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Harare are quite good and should remain that way for the duration of the match. The pitch is going to be flat, slow, and a bit dull. The batters will be able to get runs after getting set and the spinners should have a big say as well.

We think a score of around 250-260 should be seen as being quite competitive.

ZIM vs BAN Betting Tips

We are going to bet on Bangladesh to win. The ODI format is where Bangladesh really shones. It is also strengthened by the return of some of its best and more experienced batters.

Bet on Bangladesh to win.
