Bangladesh is all set to host Zimbabwe for a Test match at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, in Dhaka in February 22
The hosts will be hopeful to grab full points in the one-off match at their own backyard, but Zimbabwe has more than a tough assignment on hand. The Africans have struggled against Bangladesh in the recent past and that’s going to play a big part. But, with players like Sean Williams and Brendan Taylor in good form, it is expected the visitors put up a spirited fight. For us, we have a lot of cash to win, especially with the odds we have in the market. I have already assorted the best three for you, just go through the piece and act accordingly.
Brendan Taylor is the best batsman Zimbabwe has produced in this century, period. But what’s remarkable is that he is continuing with the same flow after he returned to International cricket after a hiatus of more than two years. In the last five innings, his scores are – 62, 67, 21, 38, 110, having scored a total of 298 runs at an average of almost 60 runs per innings and was the top scorer in three of those matches. In away matches, he has been destructive of late, having scored a total of 246 runs at a rate of 61.5 runs per innings.
Overall, he has played a total of 10 matches, scored a total of 1039 runs at an average of 64.93 which includes five centuries and two fifties with a top score of 171. In the last four innings at the Shere Bangla Stadium, in Dhaka, Taylor has been the top scorer on three occasions with scores of 110, 106, 28, 45 (289 runs at a rate of 72.25 runs per innings). In the four innings he played in the 2019-20 season, the right-hander has scored 188 runs at an average of 47 with a top score of 67 which includes two fifties. This is a bet which guarantees you return.
If Brendan Taylor is your money maker from the Zimbabwe squad, Mushfiqur Rahim is your golden duck from the other half. In the last five matches, Rahim’s scores read – 74, 0, 64, 43, 23, having racked up a total of 204 runs at an average of 40.8 runs per innings and was the top batsman in three of those occasions. His head to head records will itself back my claim to a great extent. In the last four innings against Zimbabwe, his scores are – 7, 219, 13, 31, having scored a total of 270 runs at a rate of 67.5 runs per innings which includes his career best of 219.
In the 8 matches he played against the African nation, the wicket-keeper batsman has amassed 643 runs at an average of 45.92 which includes a century and three fifties. In the 2019-20 season, he has played just two matches, scored a total of 181 runs at a rate of 45.25 runs per innings which includes two fifties. To add more context to the matter, let me inform you that his 219-run innings which he scored against Zimbabwe was at the same venue where the upcoming match is going to be played. If you still haven’t played the bet, just do it.
Well, this is a surprising pick bet, but I bet you will be more than comfortable to place the bet once you read the whole paragraph. In the last three innings, his figures are – 7/113, 1/63, 3/62, having picked up a total of 11 wickets at a rate of almost four per innings and was the pick of the bowler in two of the above mentioned instances. In the last four innings away from home, his figures are – 0/111, 1/39, 3/35, 3/41, scalping 7 wickets and was also the pick of the bowlers in one of the cases.
When playing against Zimbabwe Raza has also maintained a decent record having picked up a total of 7 wickets and was the pick of the bowlers in one of them. Overall, he has played five matches against Bangladesh, having picked up 12 wickets with best figures of 3/35. In the 2109-20 season, Raza has played just two matches and taken as many as 11 wickets. I feel there’s enough reason for you to invest on this bet.
