To Win Match *betting tba
Zimbabwe | Tie 25/1 | Bangladesh
In the series opener Zimbabwe pulled off a remarkable recovery to chase down a 300+ target.
Innocent Kaia’s hundred has announced his arrival as a force for the Chevrons and a reason to be positive.
Sikandar Raza was the big hero and he seemingly willed Zimbabwe over the line but the performance should draw a big crowd for Sunday’s match.
Zimbabwe’s knowledge of the surface proved vital with the Tigers perhaps leaving 20-30 runs out there.
Bangladesh will rue that they were just never able to kick on despite keeping the scoreboard ticking over.
They will need to show a great deal more intent if they are to fight their way back into this series.
Anamul Haque looked the most likely of the top-order batters while his peers appeared content to try to bat themselves into form.
Mosaddek Hossain was the weak link in the bowling lineup last time out and considering he doesn’t bring much to the party with the bat he might have punched his ticket for a Sunday off.
Zimbabwe now hold the advantage and they should ram it home.
