Zimbabwe carried their T20I winning streak into the ODIs, winning the first match by 5 wickets. The hosts are riding high after victories in regional qualifiers and the T20I series against Bangladesh. Bangladesh will be devastated by the loss in their first ODI match in their preferred format. They will try to level the series before the final match by making a comeback in this match. Comeback matches have great opportunities to bet.
Weather in Harare is expected to be bright and sunny, with only a 20% chance of rain, and weather disruptions are not expected in this game. Harare is a good batting surface, with the ball coming onto the bat with good pace and bounce. Spinners may take advantage of the slower nature of the track with the older ball. We anticipate around 280-300 runs in this match as well. Teams scored more than 300 runs in both innings of the previous match, and we expect both captains to chase the total if they win the toss.
Zimbabwe’s openers were dismissed cheaply inside two overs, leaving the score at 6/2. They suffered another setback when Wesley Madhevere was released after a 56-run partnership. Innocent Kaia and Sikander Raza then combined to take on the opposition bowlers, sharing a brilliant 188-run partnership in which both players scored centuries. Raza’s unbeaten 135 runs got them over the line. Zimbabwe’s bowlers struggled to keep the run flow under control, taking only two wickets in their innings.
Bangladesh’s top four batters all reached fifties and formed partnerships throughout their innings. They didn’t get any fireworks from their batters, but they finished with 303 runs in 50 overs despite losing only two wickets. Najmul Shanto could come in for the injured Liton Das in the starting XI. Bangladesh’s bowlers were unable to apply pressure in the middle overs, and their fielders, who dropped dollies, were no help.
