The first 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 16. 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 have not lost a single match since 2013 and won all the 16 games against Zimbabwe in the last 7 years. This includes the games played in Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Bangladesh are clearly superior at the format of the game even now, and their odds reflect that. Zimbabwe Select XI would have lost the tour ODI match against Bangladesh on Wednesday, but the rains saved Zimbabwe from the defeat and the match ended with Zimbabwe needing another 108 runs from 10 overs with 3 wickets left. I have picked the top ZIM vs BAN 1st ODI match predictions and betting tips lined up for you to win from the game.
While the team bets in the game don’t provide us with great odds, the player bets have some definite winners. Regis Chakabva has a poor track record, while Wesley Madhevere and Tamim Iqbal are bound to score in the upcoming ODI. Take a look at the top ZIM vs BAN player bets.
The first bet I have picked for you is the middle-order batsman for Zimbabwe who debuted in 2020. Wesley Madhevere might be just 20 years old, but he has played with consistency beyond expectations. The Allrounder from Harare debuted in an ODI series against Bangladesh and scored 129 runs (35, 52, 42) from his three games. This was an average of 43.0 and he scored over the target in all the games. These matches were being played in away territory, in Bangladesh, and he should be able to play much better at home.
Wesley Madhevere played the two tour matches against Bangladeshis from the Zimbabwe Select team. While he wasn’t able to perform in the game, he did score 29 runs in the test tour. The right-handed batsman has played 6 ODIs and scored 227 runs from them at 37.83. He has a similar average from his List-A games. He has scored 304 runs from 8 innings at 38.0. This is one of the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions for the 1st ODI. Dafabet.com has offered odds of 1.87 for Wesley Madhevere to score over 20.5 runs.
The target for the opener for Bangladesh might seem high to the uninitiated, but Tamim Iqbal has a stellar record against Zimbabwe. The 32-year-old veteran from Bangladesh has played 216 ODI matches in his career and scored 7534 runs from them. This averages 36.75 and he has hit 13 centuries and 51 fifties. He has played 41 games against Zimbabwe since 2007 and scored 1684 runs against them at 43.17. While his performance in his earlier years was average, he has been in great form in the last few years. In his last 5 games against Zimbabwe, he scored 470 runs (128*, 158, 24, 76, 84*) from the games. This is an average of 123.33, and he managed to score over the target in 4 of his 5 innings.
Tamim Iqbal last played at Harare Sports Club back in 2011. He has played 15 games in Zimbabwe and scored 557 runs at 37.13, but his last game there was all the way back in 2013. He did score 66 runs in the tour match against Zimbabwe Select on Wednesday which bodes well for this market. While we do not endorse Tamim Iqbal against all teams, Zimbabwe is one of the teams he has no problems facing anymore. This is another one of the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions from the 1st ODI. Dafabet.com has offered odds of 1.87 for Tamim Iqbal to score over 33.5 runs.
The final bet is for the top-order Zimbabwean batsman who has been opening in the last few games. Regis Chakabva has played a total of 41 matches and scored 646 runs from them at an average of 17.94. His career average shows that he has not been able to score and has a lot of duress while facing Bangladesh in the past. He has played 14 games against them and scored 232 runs at an average of 17.84. He scored below the target in 9 of the 14 innings. In his last 5 games against them, he managed to score over the target against them only once.
Regis Chakabva has played only 1 game against Bangladesh at home and he managed to score only 1 run in the game. He has played 8 games in Harare and managed to score over the target in half of the matches. Chakabva has played 9 series featuring more than one match. In the 7 innings he came out to bat in the 1st match of the series, he managed to score over the target only twice. This is one of the top ZIM vs BAN match predictions. Dafabet.com is offering odds of 1.87 for Regis Chakabva to score under 17.5 runs in the 1st ODI.
