Pitch Report:

The surface has got a good pace and carry. The boundaries are a little bit longer and the batters should be on their toes to run well between the wickets. The wicket doesn’t change much throughout the match, so bowling first will be a good choice.

Top Picks for ZIM vs BAN Dream11 Match:

Top Picks ­Batsmen

Soumya Sarkar looked stylish in the 1st T20I with the bat, as he scored his 4th T20I half-century. He even picked up the wicket of Tarisai Musakanda, and later on, was announced as the player of the match for his all-round performances.

Dion Myers carried his decent form from the ODIs into the T20Is as well. He was playing until he was dismissed for playing a loose stroke when he was on 35 runs.

Top Picks ­All-Rounders

Shakib Al Hasan didn’t get the opportunity to bat in the 1st T20I. He bowled pretty tight lines and didn’t give much opportunity for the batters to go against him. He picked up a wicket at an economy of 7.

Sikandar Raza had a bad game in the 1st T20I, where he was dismissed for no score. He has played 40 T20Is and knows the way to make a comeback in the 2nd T20I.

Top Picks ­Bowlers

Shoriful Islam was the most economical bowler for Bangladesh in the 1st T20I. He scalped 2 wickets by conceding 17 runs in his 3 overs.

After coming back from injury, Mustafizur Rahman straight away delivered for Bangladesh in the 1st T20I. He picked up 3 wickets at an economy of 7.75.
