Insight

Zimbabwe picked up a stunning one-point win over Pakistan in the T20 World Cup on Thursday, defending a goal of just 131, and they should be backed to beat a disappointing Bangladesh side in Brisbane.

The Tigers lost all five of their Super 12 games at last year’s World Cup in the United Arab Emirates and their only win in their last six T20 internationals was a scrappy nine-point win over the Netherlands on Monday .

Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh 2-1 in a T20 series at home in August and produced a brilliant bowling game in this week’s dramatic win over Pakistan.

Bangladesh were completely outclassed by South Africa in a 104-point rout on Thursday and their T20 batting line-up lacks power or consistency.

Pakistan have been on the wrong side of some remarkable results at this World Cup and they will be hoping for an easier game against the Netherlands at the Optus Stadium in Perth.

Babar Azam’s men, ranked fourth favorites by most bookmakers heading into the tournament, failed to defend 28 of their last eight balls in their clash with India before a desperate batting effort against Zimbabwe.

They should be too strong for the Dutch but Dutch fly-half Max O’Dowd, who scored ten fifty-one in 54 T20 internationals, could thrive on fast Perth ground.

Most of O’Dowd’s big scoring came against weaker opponents than Pakistan, but he took 71 steps against Sri Lanka in that tournament’s first group stage and went 16 from ten against Sri Lanka. India on Thursday, when teammate Tim Pringle scored with just 20.
