ZIM vs BAN Match Predictions for the 2nd ODI

The 2nd ODI from a three-game series will be played between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. They will be playing the game at the Harare Sports Club in Harare on July 18. I have picked the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions and betting tips from the game for you.

After winning the only Test match against Zimbabwe, Bangladesh are gearing up to win in the 3 match ODI series. They won the last game with a lead of 155 runs, after setting up a target of 277 runs for Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwe batting squad were sliced through like butter by the Bangladesh bowling squad, with Shakib Al Hasan getting 5 wickets. Liton Das was the player of the match because of his 102 runs off 114 balls innings with the bat. Zimbabwe have not managed to win a game against Bangladesh since 2013, and would really need to step up their game to make a difference. I have picked the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions to get you winning from the game.

ZIM vs BAN Player Bets

The oddsmakers have not come out with a lot of pregame odds. If you can find odds for Liton Das to score go for the over bet, as he is in indomitable form. I have picked the top ZIM vs BAN player bets available to win from the upcoming game.

Tamim Iqbal to hit under 3.5 fours

Tamim Iqbal is one of the veterans on who the team has always depended to win games. He has played 217 ODI matches with 7534 runs from them at an average of 36.57. With 819 fours from the games, he averages just over 3.5 fours in his career. He failed to perform against Zimbabwe in the first game, which has been the case since he started leading the team. In fact, Tamim Iqbal has played 42 innings against Zimbabwe and scored 1684 runs from them. At an average of 42.10, he has hit 154 fours against them. This is an average of 3.8 fours per game. He could not hit over the required target in more than half of the games though.

In his last 10 innings against Zimbabwe, he scored over the target in only half the games. He has played 6 games in Harare and never managed to hit over the target fours at the pitch. Tamim Iqbal has also been in poor shape ever since he started leading his team. He hit 38 fours from his 13 games as captain but did not hit over the target in 10 games. This is one of the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions. Bet365.com has offered odds of 2.25 for Tamim Iqbal to hit under 3.5 fours.

Shakib Al Hasan to hit under 3.5 fours

The second bet is for another top-order Bangladeshi Batsman who will be unable to hit the target of fours set up for him. Shakib Al Hasan has played 201 ODI innings and scored 6474 runs from them. With 587 fours he has an average of almost 3 fours per game. This is in line with his play against Zimbabwe, against whom he has hit 134 boundaries from 43 innings. This is an average of 3.09 fours and he scored under the target in 3 of his 5 innings. What’s even better is that he has played 7 ODIs in 2021 and he managed to score over the target in just 1 of the 7 innings.

Shakib Al Hasan has specifically bad play under the leadership of Tamim Iqbal. He has hit only 13 fours from the 7 games he played under him. This is an average of 1.85 fours per game, and he hit fours under the target in 6 of his 7 innings under Tamim Iqbal. He has also hit only 97 fours from his 41-second matches in a series that averages under 3 fours per game. This is another one of the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions and betting tips. Bet365.com has offered odds of 1.72 for Shakib Al Hasan to hit under 3.5 fours.

Brendan Taylor to hit over 2.5 fours

You might think it wild to pick the Bangladeshi batsmen as our underbets and the Zimbabwean skipper as the over bet. That is how these markets are shaped though, to try to gain for the aggregates while punters can’t game the system. Brendan Taylor has a really consistent record, and this is one of the simpler bets to go from the ZIM vs BAN 2nd ODI head-to-head match. Not only did Brendan Taylor hit 3 fours in his last knock against Bangladesh, but he has scored over the target fours in all his last 5 games. He has played 54 games against Bangladesh and hit 120 boundaries at an average of almost 2.5 fours per game.

Brendan Taylor has much better play at home, with 3197 runs from 91 innings at 39.96. He has hit 261 fours in the games, at an average of almost 3 fours per game. The skipper has much better batting innings while playing as a captain too. He has hit 124 fours from 35 innings at an average of 3.56 fours per game. Brendan Taylor has some of his best performances playing at the 3rd position. He has hit 103 fours from 32 games and hit over the target in 4 of the last 5 games he played in the position. This is one of the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions. Bet365.com has offered odds of 1.57 for Brendan Taylor to hit over 2.5 fours.
