PAK vs BAN Preview:
- Babar Azam has an ODI average of just under 60 and the Pakistan skipper is our tip for their highest run scorer against Bangladesh. With the ball, Shaheen Shah Afridi took 4-35, including two maiden overs, in the no-result with India and he is well worth backing to be Pakistan’s top wicket taker in this game.
- Mehidy Hasan Miraz struck 112 runs from 119 balls against Afghanistan at the top of the order and he is our pick for Bangladesh’s highest run scorer in this match. Taskin Ahmed took 4-44 from 8.3 overs on Sunday and we expect him to be Bangladesh’s top wicket taker against Pakistan.
- After hitting 151, 60 and 53 from his last three ODI innings, we expect to see Babar Azam scoring over 31.5 runs in this match.

It was a fine performance from Pakistan’s pace bowlers in the last game against India and no injuries were reported after the match. So far in the Asia Cup 2023, Babar Azam has announced the same XI ahead of both fixtures and we expect the same again for this clash.
