Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh, First T20I: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the First T20I between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh in Harare

The hosts were swept clean 3-0 in the ODI series. Now, in the shortest format, they seek redemption on the back of an improved batting performance from the last ODI.

The hosts have played 13 matches against Bangladesh and have won only four matches against them. In the last five, Bangladesh have beaten Zimbabwe in four.

HEAD TO HEAD

Overall: Matches – 13 | ZIM – 4 wins | BAN – 9 wins

Last five matches: ZIM – 1 win | BAN – 4 wins

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 DETAILS

The Harare Sports Club has seen 13 T20 matches since 2019. On an average, teams have scored 144 runs in the first innings and teams batting first have won seven out of the 13 matches with one no result. However, teams have chosen to field in 10 matches and won four. In the last three matches, teams have scored 150+ in the first innings.

The pacers have had the wood over spinners in terms of wickets as they have bagged 55.1 percent of wickets as compared to 40.9 percent by spinners. But, when it comes to picking wickets early, its even-steven. Spinners have bagged wickets at a strike rate of 18.7 as compared to 18.4 by pacers. Economically, spinners (6.7) have been way better than the pacers (7.5).

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

In the ODI series Shakib Al Hasan had scored 140+ runs and bagged eight wickets. He was the highest wicket taker in the ODI series. In T20Is since 2019, Shakib Al Hasan has been the second highest wicket taker with 50 wickets among Bangladesh spinners. Moreover, the allrounder has scored 700+ runs in this time frame. With a form behind him, Shakib is our choice of captain

Our Criclytics player projections predicts, Shakib could score 14-22 runs and bag 0-1 wicket in the first T20I

X-FACTOR

After repeated failures against New Zealand and Sri Lanka, Liton Das was up to the occasion in the ODI series. Das loves scoring against Zimbabwe across formats. He averages 46 against them across formats and in international T20, he has scored close to 200 runs at an average of 48.3. Playing against his favorite opponents, Das is for sure an X-factor

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Liton Das could score 31-47 runs in the first T20I

The wily left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman, is a must-have bowler in the fantasy team, especially in the shortest format. Mustafizur has been the most successful Bangladesh bowler in T20s since 2019 with 89 wickets. More importantly, 62.9 percent of his wickets have come during the death overs.  

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Mustafizur could bag 0-1 wickets in the first T20I

The year 2021 has been a blissful one for Luke Jongwe. He has bagged nine wickets in three matches at a strike rate of 7.2. No other Zimbabwe bowler has bagged as many wickets as him in this calendar year. All his wickets came in his last series against Pakistan. On back of good form Jongwe is a certain X-factor  

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Jongwe could bag 1-2 wickets in the first T20I
