Bangladesh vs Pakistan 1st T20I Betting Tips 19/11/2021

Teams Status


Pakistan have retained much of the squad that flew high in the recently played T20 World Cup before falling to eventual champions Australia in the semis.

The only absentee will be Mohammad Hafeez, who withdrew in order to “give opportunities to young players”. In his place, allrounder Iftikhar Ahmed has been added to the squad.

Iftikhar, however, has not made the 12-man group from which the final 11 will be chosen. The dozen in contention are: Babar Azam (Captain), Shadab Khan (Vice-Captain), Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Mohammad Wasim Jr., Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shoaib Malik

Even though the playing eleven tomorrow could be a bit different than the one that impressed during the World Cup, Pakistan have so much talent that they would still be the stronger side.


Bangladesh had a rather forgettable World Cup campaign. They had loaded up on T20s in the buildup to the tournament, hoping that it would fine-tune their players and give them an edge.

However, the strategy backfired as they were upset in their opening game by Scotland and even though they made it to the main round, they were eventually eliminated.

But the World Cup was in a foreign land and this series in hand against Pakistan is on home soil, where they have made sides as big as Australia and New Zealand tremble with humiliation in recent months.

Pakistanis, though, are much niftier players of spin and should be fine no matter what dust bowl or rank-turner they encounter in a land that once was their own and called East Pakistan.

One disappointing news for the Tigers is that there won’t be any Tamim Iqbal again as the classy opener, after missing the World Cup, is still on the sidelines due to a thumb injury as per ESPN.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Bangladesh to win @ 3.50

Pakistan are absolutely loaded, possesses some of the world’s most exciting talent, and dwarf Bangladesh on all fronts. That said, the world of sports in general, and cricket in particular, is a strange thing. It springs surprises when you least expect it. We do not think Pakistan would lose the series but in the first stanza, they might receive a wake-up call or a rude awakening. Also, when the odds on a dominant home team are so mouthwatering, it’s worth a shot. The odds have been sourced from Dafabet.

Tip: Mohammad Mahmudullah to score more than 15.5 runs @ 1.87

Bangladesh captain Mohammad Mahmudullah is averaging 30.14 runs in T20Is played on home soil in 2021. Based on that, we want him to only score half that average in the first T20I, which is a rather modest ask, to be honest. After a failed World Cup campaign, he might also want to lead from the front. The odds have been sourced from Dafabet.


Pakistan are the bigger and stronger side but Bangladesh have the home advantage, which often translates into pitches of their liking. Therefore, we have a slight tilt towards the home side here.
