PAK vs BAN Preview:
- Babar Azam’s recent performance showcased his ability to score consistently, as he managed to reach a half-century, accumulating 50 runs from 65 balls against South Africa in the ongoing tournament. However, he was dismissed shortly after reaching this milestone, marking the second time in the competition. Impressively, the right-handed captain has achieved three scores of 50 or more in his last four innings, and he aims to continue this trend with a third successive half-century in the upcoming match. Pakistan has high hopes for him to extend his innings and potentially reach a century in this game. We are confident in backing him as their highest run-scorer against Bangladesh.
- As we approach the 2023 Cricket World Cup fixture on Monday, Shaheen Shah Afridi stands out as one of the top five wicket-takers, having secured 13 dismissals with an impressive average of 22.76 and a strike-rate of 24.00. He has already claimed a 5-wicket haul in the current campaign, and just one more wicket will bring up his 100th ODI dismissal. Our prediction is that he will be Pakistan’s top wicket-taker in the match.
- Mehidy Hasan Miraz displayed his batting prowess in the previous match, hitting five fours and a six. Over the past year, he has consistently posted substantial scores in this format, including an unbeaten 100 against India in December 2022, a remarkable 112 not out against Afghanistan during the Asia Cup last month, and an opening half-century in this tournament against the same opposition. In a team with inconsistent batters, we believe that Mehidy Hasan Miraz is the most likely candidate to be Bangladesh’s highest run-scorer against Pakistan.
- Mustafizur Rahman, the left-arm pace bowler, has enjoyed a successful international career across all formats since his debut for Bangladesh in 2015. While he was a bit expensive against South Africa, he emerged as the standout bowler for the Tigers against the Netherlands, with figures of 2-36 from 10 overs, including a maiden over and the dismissal of the opposing skipper, Scott Edwards. Our expectation is that Mustafizur will be Bangladesh’s top wicket-taker in this upcoming fixture.
- In the last four matches of the tournament, Shaheen Shah Afridi has proven himself as a reliable wicket-taker with nine dismissals. We strongly recommend selecting him to take more than 1.5 wickets in this game.

Weather & Pitch Report:
The weather forecast for Kolkata on Tuesday predicts sunny and humid conditions, with temperatures expected to remain in the low 30s throughout the day. There is no likelihood of rain causing any interruptions.
During the match between Bangladesh and the Netherlands at Eden Gardens on Saturday, we witnessed a total of 20 wickets tumble, and only 371 runs were scored. However, it’s worth noting that the batting surface is more favorable than these statistics may imply, and we anticipate that a competitive score would fall within the range of 310 to 315 runs.
In seven out of the last eight ODIs held at this venue, the team batting first emerged as the winner. Therefore, we anticipate that if they win the toss on Tuesday, both skippers are likely to opt for batting first.

Prior to the commencement of the tournament, Bangladesh was not widely considered a genuine top-four contender, whereas Pakistan was anticipated to be a strong contender near the top of the standings. However, Pakistan’s recent performance has been notably underwhelming. Nevertheless, they displayed impressive competitiveness against South Africa, and their performance in that classic match could easily have swung in their favor.
Bangladesh boasts some exciting individual talents, but they have yet to demonstrate strong teamwork against formidable opponents. Their lack of consistent run-scorers makes it challenging to envision a path to victory for Bangladesh. As a result, our prediction leans towards Pakistan emerging victorious in the upcoming match at Eden Gardens on Tuesday.
PAK vs BAN Key Players:
The captain appeared to be on track for a substantial score against South Africa but was dismissed by gloving an attempted sweep off Tabraiz Shamsi. Despite not performing at his peak in this tournament, he has managed to accumulate a total of 207 runs thus far.
The wicket-keeper batsman holds the position of Pakistan’s top run-scorer in the competition, having notched up an impressive 333 runs at an average of 66.60. He consistently maintains a rapid strike rate, and we can expect him to maintain this approach in the upcoming match.
Shaheen Shah Afridi
Once more, the left-arm pace bowler’s performance did not warrant being on the losing team, as he successfully accounted for the wickets of Quinton de Kock, David Miller, and Gerald Coetzee in the match against South Africa.
The formidable 29-year-old right-arm fast bowler extended his tournament wicket count by two on Friday, bringing his total international dismissals to 147 as he enters this game.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz
The all-rounder might see a shift in his batting position, possibly opening the innings in this match, especially after being the highest scorer in the previous game. His exceptional form in this format at the beginning of the competition is noteworthy, and he is known for his aggressive batting style.
The highly seasoned all-rounder in the batting department has already notched up a century in this tournament and seemed to be the sole middle-order player with the capability to anchor Bangladesh’s innings during the match against the Netherlands.
The left-arm fast bowler has experienced a decline in his reputation over the past 12-18 months due to the emergence of younger, promising fast bowlers. However, it’s worth noting that his slower balls displayed exceptional effectiveness at Eden Gardens on Saturday.
Shakib Al Hasan
The captain had briefly returned home between the last two games but showcased remarkable bowling prowess against the Netherlands. He secured a notable 1-37 from his full 10-over spell, even delivering a maiden over.
PAK vs BAN Team Forms:
PAK Team Form:
Following a promising start to the Cricket World Cup 2023, a loss in this match for Babar Azam’s team would mark their fifth consecutive defeat in One Day Internationals.
BAN Team Form:
Bangladesh’s recent performance has been marked by a string of defeats, and not just ordinary losses but rather substantial ones. In their last five matches, they were defeated by a minimum margin of 7 wickets or 87 runs.
