Analysis

Having whitewashed the hosts in the 3-match ODI series, Bangladesh look in a remarkable form to dominate the T20I series as well. Key batsmen Liton Das and Mahmudullah will inarguably be the top picks for batters from Bangladesh given their current form. Additionally all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and pacer Mustafizur Rahman will also be crucial picks in one’s fantasy team. The former can turn out to be a smart captain choice as well.

Although the home team have not looked in their best form in the ODI series, a couple of players from Zimbabwe have been in a impressive form and will look forward for some match winning contributions in the upcoming series. Wicketkeeper batsman Regis Chakabva and skipper Brendan Taylor should be the must-have in one’s fantasy team. The two could also come in as good choices for vice-captain, given their current run. Adding on, Wesley Madhevere and Ryan Burl could also be a couple of smart choices in fantasy to fetch some good points.
