The Bangladesh T20I Tri-Series resumes, this time in Chattogram, with a crunch game between two rivals.

The way Afghanistan have convincingly beaten both Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, of whom have been in international cricket a lot longer than the Afghans, is of some concern. Bangladesh since the World Cup have been poor across all three formats, and the time is now for them to get things right to confirm their passage through to the Tri-Series Final. For Zimbabwe, they must win this game to keep their hopes of a finals appearance alive.

Key to a Bangladesh win

It is incredible to think that had it not been for Afif Hossain in the tournament opener, Bangladesh would be entering this game in sudden-death mode. Their top-order batting has been a ship-wreck, losing four powerplay wickets in both their two games so far. The awful strokeplay by experienced players against Afghanistan is something Bangladesh must rectify against Zimbabwe, as they can’t rely on the youngsters in the middle order to bail them out of trouble again.

Also, after having Afghanistan in all sorts of trouble at 19/3, Bangladesh really failed to drive home the advantage. Bangladesh’s lack of consistency with the ball across all stages of an innings has let them down in T20Is. Mohammad Saifuddin was excellent in his first three overs against Afghanistan, but fell away at the death like his team did. Instances like Taijul Islam’s costly no-ball and Soumya Sarkar’s poor over at the death is something the Tigers must avoid to ensure Zimbabwe don’t get away. When the pressure is on, they need to hold their own better.

Key to a Zimbabwe win

Zimbabwe have the opportunity to exert pressure on a struggling Bangladesh top order. Kyle Jarvis and Tendai Chatara weren’t quite able to reel Afghanistan in during the powerplay overs of their last game, which gave the Afghans a platform to play off. Can Zimbabwe continue Bangladesh’s powerplay woes, then driving home the advantage better than they did in their first two games? Their death bowling against Afghanistan was poor, bowling far too many full tosses which saw the game fall out of their reach.

Also, can Zimbabwe overcome Bangladesh’s spin options? Sides batting first in night games at Chattogram average just 138, which puts onus on the batsmen to rotate strike well. Shakib Al Hasan will be out for a better outing than his very expensive first game and Taijul Islam, if picked, can look to continue his fine record against Zimbabwe. Quick wickets – the kind Zimbabwe lost early against Afghanistan – is something they must avoid. With their middle order capable of sending the ball to the boundary, the top order needs to provide a platform. Can the likes of Sean Williams and Craig Ervine make the contributions expected of them?

Match Prediction

Expect another close game between two sides not at the top of their game. Bangladesh, at home, might just have enough in them to get the win that confirms their passage to the Tri-Series Final. Indeed, this is a game where Shakib Al Hasan has to deliver more for his team.
