BAN vs ZIM Match Prediction - Oct 30, 2022

It has been a week since the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup started, and we have already had some interesting matches so far. We can expect another close game, as Bangladesh takes on Zimbabwe in a Group 2 fixture on Sunday. Bangladesh is the favorite to win this match according to most betting sites. But Zimbabwe, with its recent performances, has proved that it cannot be written off. Let's have a look at how both teams stack up.

BAN vs ZIM Team Previews


Bangladesh began its campaign on a winning note, defeating the Netherlands by 14 runs in their opening fixture. However, the joy was short-lived as South Africa crushed them with a 104-run defeat in the very next game. As a result, they are now 4th on the points table.

The batsmen have failed to put up a good show and crumbled under the attack from South African bowlers. Openers Soumya Sarkar and Najmul Shanto have failed to provide a good start in both games. The middle-order too hasn’t been up to the task. Litton Das is the top scorer for his team with 43 runs from 2 matches.

Taksin Ahmed has been the pick of the bowlers, picking up 5 wickets from 2 games, and has been supported by Hasan Mahmud and Shakib Al Hasan. Mustafizur, while being economical, hasn’t been able to take a single wicket in his 8 overs, and his form remains a concern ahead of this crucial match.

After topping Group B in the Qualifiers, Zimbabwe has continued with its excellent form in the Super 12 stage too. Their first match against South Africa was washed out due to rain, and both teams shared a point. In its next game against Pakistan, Zimbabwe pulled up one of the biggest upsets in its recent history, beating Pakistan by 1 run in a thrilling encounter.

Sikandar Raza was once again in the thick of the action, picking up 3 important wickets. He has put up an all-round performance in this tournament, scoring 145 runs and picking up 8 wickets so far. Chakabva, who was pushed down the order, has failed to make a mark, while Madhvere and Craig Ervine have scored important runs at the top of the order.

Zimbabwe defended a modest total of 130 in the match against Pakistan due to a disciplined bowling effort. Blessing Muzarabani has been excellent, picking up 7 wickets so far, while Richard Ngarava and Tendai Chatara have chipped in. Zimbabwe is 3rd on the points table, and a win against Bangladesh can immensely improve its chances of finishing in the top 2 of Group 2.

BAN vs ZIM Toss Prediction

The results at the Gabba are slightly skewed in favor of the team batting second when you take into account both, the domestic, as well as international T20s, played here. We, therefore, predict that the team winning the toss will like to bowl first.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Brisbane is known to remain true throughout the innings, and batsmen will enjoy batting here. However, the quick bowlers will be able to extract some movement, especially early on in the game. The weather is expected to remain mostly clear, with some clouds in the later part of the day. A predicted high of 29 degrees Celsius will make it a bit uncomfortable for the players.

While a score of around 165 can be considered a par score, the team batting first would like to get as close to 200 as they can to give their bowlers enough runs to defend. 

BAN vs ZIM Betting Tips

Zimbabwe is in excellent touch, making this a difficult match to call. However, we are still backing Bangladesh to win this game. Zimbabwe looks heavily reliant on the performances of a couple of players, especially Raza. Bangladesh looks like a much more balanced squad and should win this one. Albeit, it wouldn’t be surprising if the match goes down the wire.

Bet on Bangladesh to win.

    Bangladesh's First 6 Overs Total

    Over 38.5 (1.42)


While Bangladesh openers have failed to put up big scores, they have scored runs at a brisk pace. Litton Das, who plays at the number 3 spot, has been in good touch, and we can expect him to score runs in this game. Bangladesh has scored 47 runs in the powerplay in both the matches it has played so far, including against a formidable South African bowling. Except for Muzarabani, the Zimbabwean bowlers haven’t been very disciplined, and we can expect them to leak runs on a flat pitch at the Gabba.

  1. Dafabet


    Total Ducks

    Over 1.5 (2.38)


The batsmen from both teams haven’t been in good form. In both the games played by Bangladesh in this tournament, 2 batsmen have been dismissed for a duck. Similarly, in Zimbabwe’s match against Pakistan, 2 of its batsmen were out for a duck. We are therefore predicting that more than 1 batsman will be out for a duck in this game.
