Cricket Free Tips | Bangladesh vs Pakistan, 2021: 1st T20I

Bangladesh will host Pakistan in a three-match T20I series that begins on November 19th. Bangladesh had a poor showing in the T20 World Cup 2021, losing all of their games in the Super 12. Mushfiqur Rahim has been opted out of this series, while Liton Das and Sowmya Sarkar have been dropped. Tamim Iqbal is still out with an injury and will not be selected.

On the other side, Pakistan suffered heartache in the just ended T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia, losing by 5 wickets. It’s now time for them to move on and start training for the T20 World Cup, which will be held in Australia next year. For this match, they have already named a 12-man squad.

 

Weather
Both sides will be greeted by a clear sky today. Temperatures in Dhaka are likely to be in the 26~30°C.

 

Pitch
Shere Bangla National Stadium has a slow-moving pitch. At the start of their innings, batters must be patient but once set, and they can play their strokes more freely. On this surface, the spinners will be crucial.
