PAK vs BAN Match Preview

Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam have struggled so far and have continued to fail. The bowling lineup of Bangladesh is not the greatest and could give them a chance to find their touch again. Their all-rounders are excellent and their bowling is world-class. 

The confidence gained in the previous match will help Bangladesh but they simply do not have enough boundary hitters in their lineup. Litton Das and Shakib Al Hasan are by far the best batters in the lineup.

The bowling lineup is decent without being outstanding. Mustafizur Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan are the other leading bowlers for Bangladesh.

Weather Report

The weather forecast for Adelaide is excellent. There is no rain predicted and the temperatures should be very comfortable as well. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Adelaide is flat and brilliant for batting. The ball comes onto the bat nicely, the outfield is fat, and the dimensions of the boundaries are quite small. A score of around 170-180 should be seen as par. 

Notable stats

One-Sided Rivalrly

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing Pakistan to win this match. It is the superior team with a deeper batting lineup, a superior bowling attack, and a history of dominance on its side. 

Top Picks

Shadab Khan - After what he did in the previous match for Pakistan, Shadab Khan has to be the first player to pick for your Dream11 team. A genuine all-rounder that can contribute in all aspects of the game.

Mustafizur Rahman - A slightly average tournament so far should not deter you from picking him. We think he could make the life of the Pakistani openers a bit tough. 

Iftikhar Ahmed - The one Pakistani batter that will leave Australia with an enhanced reputation, Ifitkhar Ahmed is in great form and is scoring runs consistently.
