Pakistan vs Bangladesh ODI World Cup


Pakistan and Bangladesh are almost out of the top-four race, which robs the sheen of this match. Yet, take nothing away from their clash as the sides meet at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Tuesday.

It is surprising to see Pakistan struggle to close out the matches, although in their last match against South Africa, there were glimpses that they were getting back to form. Although it’s late for their top-four chances, I believe Pakistan are going to win this match.

  • Pakistan have won their last 2 matches against Bangladesh (ODIs)
  • Pakistan have won their last WC match against Bangladesh (ODIs)
  • Bangladesh have lost 7 of their 9 matches against Pakistan in neutral venues (ODIs)
  • Mustafizur Rahman was Bangladesh’s top-bowler in his last 2 matches against Pakistan (ODIs)

Head to Head


There have been 38 ODIs between Pakistan and Bangladesh in all so far, with Pakistan winning 33 and losing five. Tellingly though, four of those wins for Bangladesh have come across the last six H2H matches.

In the World Cups, the record is 1-1 with Bangladesh winning in 1999 and Pakistan winning in the 2019 edition.

Pakistan Form


Pakistan are 6th in the standings after Sunday’s match between India and England with four points from six matches. They are four points behind fourth-placed Australia.

With their top-four chances already under threat, Pakistan can’t afford another defeat. They have lost their last four in a row, their worst such record in World Cups.

Mohammad Rizwan (333 runs) remains their best bet with the bat, while the improved performances from Shaheen Shah Afridi (13 wickets) remain the only positive from the last three matches.

Pakistan Team News


Usama Mir was the concussion substitute for Shadab Khan in their last match and could start this match. Hasan Ali missed the last match due to fever, but if he gets fit, it could be Haris Rauf whose position could be under threat.

Bangladesh Form


Bangladesh are second from the bottom in the points tally after six rounds with two points. Only a poorer England save them from the bottom.

The Tigers have lost five matches on the bounce after starting the tournament with a win. A lot of permutations have to fall in place for them to qualify, but is fair to say they are closer to the elimination door than progression to the semis.

It’s a surprise that Mahmudullah (218 runs) leads their batting charts despite starting their matches way down the order. With the ball, Shoriful Islam (eight wickets) has been the lone shining beacon for Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Team News


Towhid Hridoy missed Bangladesh’s last match due to some fitness issues and could get back into the playing XI here. They could also look at pushing Mahmudullah up the order and add another bowling option.

Verdict

Pakistan and Bangladesh are perhaps two teams that have disappointed their fans the most. They are unlikely to be in the top-four at the end of the group stage, but this match could see an interesting battle. I feel Pakistan have enough in their tank to avoid another banana peel. Back the Pakistani side to win this match.
