Bangladesh – Fantasy Notes

  • Soumya Sarkar is certainly not one of the safest captaincy options but he could be considered as a differential for c/vc in this match, as he has a very good record against Zimbabwe. His added ability to bowl a few overs when needed also adds to his fantasy value.
  • Pick Mustafizur Rahman as a differential bowler in your team! Since his return to the XI for the World Cup, he has bowled economically but has not been on the list of wicket-takers. This is a good opportunity to try him in your teams as he has a good record against Zimbabwe especially when he bowls first against them.
  • Against a Zimbabwe batting with 3 left-handers in the top five, an off-spinning option will come in handy. Bangladesh has two of them – Mosaddek Hossain and Mehidy Hasan Miraz. While Mehidy is likely to be preferred as the primary option, Mosaddek has also had a lot of success with the ball in the powerplay on their recent tour to Zimbabwe. Pick at least one of the two in your teams!

Zimbabwe – Fantasy Notes

  • Due to the poor form of Regis Chakabva, Wessly Madhevere was promoted to open the batting in the last match and he is likely to continue in that role in this match as well.
  • Ryan Burl is a top differential pick in this match as he has an excellent record against Bangladesh. He could also be used as a wrist-spin option, which is a bowling type that the Bangladesh batters struggle against. His only drawbacks are that he bats too low and that his bowling is very rarely used in T20s.
  • Sikandar Raza’s struggle against left-arm spin is a cause of concern when he faces Shakib. He also does not have the best record against Bangladesh. That said, he cannot be ignored given his recent form and his ability to pick up wickets with the ball. On paper, he has a positive matchup with his off-spin against a team with 4 left-handers in their top 5.
  • Craig Ervine and Sean Williams have not done well against Bangladesh in the past. Both of them struggle against off-spin and left-arm pace, particularly Ervine who will also be more vulnerable in the powerplay. Williams on the other hand has a safety net on his side as he can also bowl with Bangladesh struggling to score quickly against his bowling type of left-arm spin, despite being an LHB-dominated side.
