BAN Vs ZIM Match Prediction: Who will win?

It is going to be an interesting contest as the series is on the line. In the first T20I, Zimbabwe made Bangladesh’s bowling lineup look dwarfs as they went on to score 200+ runs. In the very next match, we saw Bangladesh making a comeback winning the match by 7 wickets. It was an easy victory that was much needed to boost their morale.

When the two teams meet on Tuesday, Bangladesh will be the favorite to win the match but we can be assured that the home crowd will definitely cheer for Zimbabwe and they have all potential to turn the game in their favor.
