Afghanistan have already sealed the series against the hosts and would like to whitewash them when they face each other in the 3rd and last ODI of the series at Harare Sports Club on 9th June 2022. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, will try to win at least one game of the series before playing T20Is against visitors.

Afghanistan have managed to win 2 ODI comfortably against Zimbabwe. In the first ODI, they played an all-around cricket and managed to win the game by 60 runs whereas in the 2nd match they easily chased down the target and claimed a win by 8 wickets. This 3rd game will be important for them to create history in away conditions.

The third game between these two will be played on the same ground where the first two were played and Afghanistan have an advantage in this game as they have utilized the conditions very well on the same ground. It will be a huge task for hosts to save the game and avoid whitewash on Thursday.

Zimbabwe Preview

After losing the series against Afghanistan on home soil, now it's a huge challenge for hosts to save the whitewash when they face visitors in the last ODI of the series on 9th June 2022 at Harare Sports Club. Afghanistan are looking strong and that is why Zimbabwe have to utilize its full strength to claim the 3rd ODI.

With the help of Blessing Muzarabani’s brilliant spell of 4 wickets for 52 runs in his 9 overs, Zimbabwe could manage to restrict opponents to 276 runs but failed terribly while chasing the target. Only Sikandar Raza could manage to score 67 runs from 78 balls and as a result, they lost the game by 60 runs.

In the 2nd ODI of the series, Afghanistan asked Zimbabwe to bat first and Zimbabwe failed to put runs on the board in front of Afghanistan's bowling attack. Only Innocent Kaia’s 63 runs from 74 balls and Ryan Burl’s not out 51 runs from 61 balls, were the key knocks in the inning which helped them to put 228 runs on the board. 

Zimbabwe’s bowlers failed to restrict that target and the visitors won the game by 8 wickets. In both the ODIs, they have struggled with the batting unit that costs them a series. Now in the last match of the series, they would like to utilize their batting strength properly to save the whitewash from Afghanistan.

Key players
Innocent Raia, Craig Ervine, Wessley Madhevere, Blessing Muzarabani.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Regis Chakabva (wk), Innocent Raia, Craig Ervine (c), Wessley Madhevere, Milton Shumba, Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani, Donald Tiripano, Tanaka Chivanga.

Venue Details

The Harare Sports Club in Harare will host this match. This ground is considered a home ground of Zimbabwe and has conducted a few international as well as local domestic games previously. This stadium can accommodate a total of 10,000 people. 

Toss: To Bowl

This ground has conducted 154 ODIs so far and offered an advantage to batters in a few previous matches. The team who has opted to bowl first here has delivered better than the batting team as in the past 10 ODIs, the chasing team has managed 6 times. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first and chase. 

Afghanistan have already clinched the series with a brilliant display of bowling as well as batting. ZImbabwe’s batting unit has struggled a lot against Afghanistan’s spin attack in both ODIs, and that is why it will be a huge advantage for Afghanistan in the last ODI to claim a whitewash against the hosts. Zimbabwe’s batting unit might cost them a defeat in the last ODI also.
 

We predict that Afghanistan will defeat Zimbabwe.
