After Zimbabwe’s incredible victory over Pakistan in the Twenty20 World Cup on Thursday, in which they defended a target of just 131, Bangladesh should be favored to lose to Zimbabwe in Brisbane due to Bangladesh’s lackluster performance in the tournament.
The Tigers were eliminated from the World Cup after losing all five of their Super 12 matches in the United Arab Emirates in 2017. The Tigers’ only victory in their most recent six T20 international matches was a sloppy nine-run win over the Netherlands on Monday.
In a Twenty20 series played at home in August, Zimbabwe prevailed over Bangladesh 2-1, and in this week’s nail-biting victory over Pakistan, their bowling performance was outstanding.
On Thursday, Bangladesh’s Twenty20 batting lineup was exposed as lacking in power and consistency, which contributed to their 104-run thrashing at the hands of South Africa.
At this World Cup, Pakistan has been on the receiving end of a couple of remarkable results, and they will be hoping for a more straightforward contest against the Netherlands when they play there at the Optus Stadium in Perth.
After failing to defend 28 off the final eight balls of their match against India and then making a desperate batting effort against Zimbabwe, the team led by Babar Azam, who was rated fourth favorite by the majority of bookmakers before the tournament began, was eliminated.
They ought to be too strong for the Dutch, but Netherlands opener Max O’Dowd, who has scored ten fifties and a century in 54 T20 internationals, could thrive on the pacey Perth pitch. Max O’Dowd has scored ten fifties and a century in T20 internationals.
However, O’Dowd made 71 not out against Sri Lanka in the first group stage of this tournament, and he cracked 16 off ten balls against India on Thursday, when his teammate Tim Pringle led the scoring with just 20. Most of O’Dowd’s big scores have come against opponents that are not as strong as Pakistan.
