PAK Vs BAN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Focus shifts to the longest format of the game with the two match test series commencing today.
After being decimated 2-0 in the bygone three match T20 series, Bangladesh make an advent into the upcoming test match series looking instil some kind of semblance in their ranks. Defiance, fight and character will be pivotal for the side as they get ready to overhaul an underachieving set of results and unlock the true potential prevelant in their ranks.
What will perturb Bangladesh is the manner in which they were putdown in the T20 series but there being no reslliance or resolve on display by the side. And as we turn attention to red ball cricket, it’s only fair that Bangladesh are being considered as mere pushovers, a side Pakistan will find way too easy to demolish once again.
Pakistan will be looking to emulate the same rousing displays which saw them defeat Sri Lanka in their last test match. And with Bangladesh being so meek and bleak, they are set to live upto the moniker accorded to them, a match which the side should manage to cruise to a win in given their bowling unit.
Although this format is massively different from T20s, Bangladesh’s plight won’t improve. They were comprehensively outplayed in all departments of the game previously and on a surface where day 4 and 5 batting will be calamitous, we envision them dwindling to be obliterated in the encounter.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A fine surface for the batters, the team winning the toss will be looking to come out and bat first. The wicket will start opening up and cracking starting day 4, an eventuality which will see the bowlers who take pace off the ball thrive to make chasing a treacherous proposition.

PAK Vs BAN Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
We are moving in for Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan in this component of our Dream 11 side not only owing to his ability with the bat. Bangladesh are bound to shambolically collapse in this encounter, something which will see Rizwan play a solid role keeping wickets as well.
PAK Vs BAN Dream11 Batsmen
Babar Azam and Abid Ali both scored 100s the last time they played on this surface against Sri Lanka to make the duo our pick for this contest. On a surface which will favour the bats, we envision both of them moving conjointly to concurrently pile on the misery on Bangladesh in this clash.
The side’s captain, Azhar Ali has 582 runs in his last 10 encounters to see him come in as well while from Bangladesh, the 325 runs in his previous three matches see us get in Tamim Iqbal.
PAK Vs BAN Dream11 All-Rounders
While the 36 wickets he has come up with in his foregone 8 clashes made him an ideal pick, the nature of this surface meant Yasir Ali was always going to be someone we would move in for. As the wicket starts to break open for the spinners in the culminating two days, his legspin will massively perturb a right hand heavy Bangladesh batting unit.
Elsewhere, from Bangladesh we are getting in their opener Saif Hasan and Mahmudullah for this tie with the duo comprising of a vibrant and enigmatic partnership, one capable of encapsulating its skill set in both the dockets of the game.
PAK Vs BAN Dream11 Bowling Order
We’ll be beginning this ambit of our Dream 11 side with Shaheen Afridi from Pakistan with the quick having snagged 25 wickets in 7 encounters to leave sides when facing him. Bangladesh’s ruckus will be the bat will see them be ruffled by Naseem Shah as well to see him be brought in as well from Pakistan.
Elsewhere, just the lone pick from the other side of the slot with Taijul Islam coming in from Bangladesh for us.
