BAN vs PAK, 1st T20: Preview, Match Details, Pitch Report, Probable XIs, Fantasy Prediction
Bangladesh will host Pakistan in the first match of the three T20I series at the Sher-E-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Friday. This will be the first series for both these sides after the conclusion of the World T20 Series 2021. This will also be the second bilateral series after the illustrious event. The ongoing India-New Zealand series was the first. Previously, the Shaheens have only played two T20Is in Bangladesh against the tigers, in 2011 and 2015. After nearly a demi-decade , Pakistan return to Bangladesh. This time for a complete 3 match series.
After their impressive run in the World T20 series, Pakistan will look to continue their domination in the limited overs. They were unarguably one of the best sides in the showpiece event and it would take something special to beat this new age side. Despite this being a home series, the pressure will be on Bangladesh. They hardly showed any intent in the grand affair and were knocked out during the group stages of the tournament.
The Mahamadullah led side will need to play out their skins to outplay the visitors. The woeful form is something they will need to rectify. The absence of regular stars Liton Das, Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and Soumya Sarkar makes the situation even worse for the hosts.

Looking at the recent encounters at this venue, the wicket is not conducive for free flowing batting. Bowlers will get assistance from the track and you can expect a low scoring affair. The team winning the toss should opt to field first.

Pakistan are clear favourites to win this one. They are in stupendous form and are way too strong for an erratic Bangladesh unit. We fancy the visitors to emerge victorious and take a 1-0 lead in the 3 match series
