Weather Conditions

Bulawayo is expected to have a hot and humid weather with no chances of rain and no weather interruptions are expected in this game.

Venue Details

Queen`s park Oval is a high scoring ground and batters will have an upper hand here in this ground. The pitch might aid bowlers as the match progresses by slowing down considerably. We can expect a run feast of 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option when you are unsure of the pitch conditions and safe target inT20Is nowadays and we expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss.

Both teams have a strong squad with a number of all-rounders in the playing XI to provide the depth and balance. Namibia has a new opening pair in this series and they lack depth in their spin bowling department are their biggest worries going into this game. Zimbabwe on the other hand too have their share of worries with no cricket action recently but will have an advantage owing to their home conditions and more experienced players in this contest. We expect Zimbabwe to win this match.
