Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh: Winnable factors for second T20I
Sportsbet.io highlights the key factors that will decide who seals a win in the second T20I between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh.
Bat first or second
Expect the pitch at Harare to aid the batsmen and the weather too is expected to be fair for the entire duration of the game.
With the absence of several key players, the onus will be on stand-in Zimbabwe skipper Sikander Raza to lead by example. Raza will have to shoulder responsibility with the bat, and must also deliver with the bat for the hosts to level the series.
Shakib Al Hasan is one of the top all-rounders in the game, across formats. He will be a threat with the bat, considering he has tallied 1567 in his T20I career at a strike rate of 123.77. In fantasy leagues too, he is perhaps the most valuable pick.
Mustafizur Rahman picked up three wickets in the first T20 game and will continue to be the biggest threat for the hosts with the ball. Mustafizur has the rare ability to strike with both new and old ball.
