Bangladesh vs Pakistan, First T20I: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the first T20I between Bangladesh and Pakistan in Mirpur, Dhaka

Two teams, Bangladesh and Pakistan with contrasting results from the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2021, go face to face in a three-match T20I series hosted by Bangladesh. Despite their poor performance in T20 WC, Pakistan will be wary of Bangladesh’s home record in recent T20Is series.

The two teams have played 12 T20Is against each other and Pakistan have a massive upper hand when it comes to head-to-head with 10 wins. In the last five matches, Bangladesh have won one and have lost three and one ended in a no-result.

HEAD TO HEAD

Overall: Matches – 12 | BAN – 2 wins | PAK – 10 wins

In Last five matches: BAN – 1 | PAK – 3 | Abandoned – 1

SUGGESTED TEAM

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms, we have come up with one team

GROUND FACTOR

Shere Bangla Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka has hosted 36 T20Is, the most at a venue in this format of the game. In recent times, batting has been a very difficult feat at this venue. Teams have averaged 15.5 with the bat in T20Is since 2021, the second lowest among all venues with five-plus matches. On an average, teams have scored 119 runs in the first innings.

The spinners have been the apex hunters at the Shere Bangla Stadium in T20Is in 2021. The have bowled 58.4 percent of the overs as compared to pacers (41.5%). Even in the wickets section, spinners have picked up 54 percent of the wickets as compared to 46 percent. However, the pacers have a better bowling strike rate as they have picked up a wicket every 15.1 balls

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

Who else can be the captain of the fantasy team apart from Babar Azam, especially after a scintillating T20 WC 2021. He scored 303 runs in the edition and was the highest for a Pakistan batter in an edition of T20 WC and he ended up as the highest run scorer for 2021 WC. In the year 2021, Babar has scored 826 runs at an average of 43.5 and a strike rate 130.3. The second best for a batsman in a calendar year in this format. With a blistering record like this, it is hard to look past Babar

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Babar could score 33-49 runs against BAN

X-FACTORS

Since Mohammad Rizwan started to open the batting with Babar, the opening pair of Pakistan have done wonders in the shortest format of the game. Mohammad Rizwan in the Semi-finals of the T20 WC 2021 became the first batsman to score 1000+ T20I runs in a calendar year and also, he became the highest run scorer in a calendar year in T20s when he scored 1743 runs this year. Riding on the back of his purple patch, Rizwan is one of the biggest X-factors.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Rizwan could score 34-52 runs against BAN

In a dull tournament for Bangladesh in the T20 WC 2021, Mohmmad Naim was a shining light. Naim scored 174 runs for Bangladesh in the tournament, the highest among all. The year 2021 has been great for him as he became the first Bangladeshi batsman to score 500+ runs in a calendar year for Bangladesh in this format. Against a formidable, bowling line up, Naim will have to shoulder the responsibility.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Naim could score 12-18 runs against PAK

Shadab Khan was a revelation in the T20 WC 2021. Prior to the T20 WC, Pakistan spinners struggled to pick wickets in the middle overs, but Shadab filled the void with his leg spin. He was the highest wicket taker for Pakistan in the T20 WC 2021 with nine and all of his nine wickets came in the middle overs.

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Shadab could pick up 2-3 wickets an score 9-13 runs against BAN
