Fantasy Picks for Bangladesh Vs Zimbabwe, Second ODI

Fantasy Cricket Tips: Preview: Bangladesh Vs Zimbabwe, Second ODI

Bangladesh continued its form with a huge win over Zimbabwe. It was a clinical performance in all three departments of the game. Liton Das with 126 anchored the innings while a late surge from the lower middle order took the total to 321. On the bowling front, contributions came from every bowler. The most satisfying performance for the home team would be that of captain Mashrafe Mortaza. For Zimbabwe, it was another game of disappointments. It was surprising to see senior pros like Craig Ervine and Sean Williams being left out of the team. They might return to the playing 11 for this game. U-19 star Wesley Madhevere had a good debut and will be a player to watch out for. The bowlers from the Chamu Chibhabha-led side have to step up for them to have a chance at winning the game.
