The surface will undoubtedly aid the slow bowlers, with the weather expected being bright and sunny. The first Test between Bangladesh and Pakistan will be held at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. The fact that the Men in Green won two Test matches in Chattogram will give them hope. On this surface, both sides will be hoping to win the toss and bat first. At Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Cricket Stadium, the average first innings score is roughly 370 runs.
Pakistan tour of Bangladesh
Bangladesh is on the verge of a clean sweep after dropping two games in a row. Will they be able to win and reclaim some pride? Read our preview for the third T20I, which begins at 1:30 p.m. IST at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. Bangladesh has had a pretty dismal series. The batting difficulties are just getting worse. The batsmen struggled once more in the second T20I, scoring only 108 runs in their 20 overs. Bangladesh is concerned about the batters’ performance. Mahmudullah and Naim, for example, must take the burden of leading the squad to a respectable score.
In the first T20I, Pakistan triumphed, as predicted. The Men in Green, on the other hand, did not have an easy victory. Pakistan lost six wickets while chasing a modest goal of 128 runs. In the previous few series, the wicket in Dhaka has favoured the bowlers much too much. This was also the case in this match. There was some grass there, as well as some dry places. We are certain that this will not be a high-scoring series. Bangladesh’s batting is presently in shambles. No batter appears to be in any shape or form. For Bangladesh’s bowlers to make a match of it, they need runs on the board.
The circumstances in Dhaka will be ideal for spinning. The games are likely to be low-scoring affairs, with getting boundaries or sixes proving difficult. There has been talk of improving Dhaka’s batting conditions, but this is unlikely to happen anytime soon. This match will be dominated by the bowlers, with batting first scores unlikely to exceed 140. If the toss is won, the winning side will choose to bat first. In the past two series played in Bangladesh, we saw teams batting first had a significant edge, so keep that in mind while putting your bets.
