Zimbabwe started off their 5-match home T20I series against Namibia with a win in the opening match. Both teams have a lot to play in this series with Zimbabwe aiming for some momentum ahead of the 2022 T20WC qualifiers while Namibia will need to come up in the points table to have a chance to qualify directly for the 2024 T20 WC. With very cricketing action between the associate nations, both teams will look to add victory to their name and stabilize their position in the ICC T20I rankings. We expect yet another cracking contest between two of the equally poised teams in this match too.

Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe innings was given a fiery start with Wesley Madhevere making a superb 12-ball 23 runs at the top. Skipper Craig Ervine (55 runs) and Sikander Raza (37 runs) then shared a brilliant 71-run partnership to lead their team`s batting. They failed to get a good finishing Ryan Burl and Milton Shumba did not find the middle of the bat very often.

Their bowlers did not get a good start as the opposition openers made a good opening partnership. Brandon Mavuta broke open the doors with the opening wicket while Milton Shumba then took centerstage claiming 3 wickets in quick time to derail the chase. Tendai Chatara and Luke Jongwe bowled economical spells to further pressurize the batting unit effectively.

Namibia Preview

Namibia had an excellent start with their openers Craig Williams (25 runs) and Divan La Cook (66 runs) giving a 67-run opening partnership. Their middle order kept losing wickets at regular intervals as their team fell short of the target by 7 runs. Zane Green (19 runs) and David Wiese (14 runs) played small cameos but were very late to win the match.

Scholtz dismissed both the opposition openers and finished with a brilliant figure of 4-0-19-2 in the match. Gerhard Erasmus, Pikky France, and Trumplemann were doing their job to perfection and had combined figures of 7-0-42-2 in the match. Their other bowlers gave runs at nearly 9+ RPO and need to tighten the screws in this match.

Weather Conditions

Queen`s Park oval pitch is slightly on the slower side and batters need to apply themselves before going big. Bulawayo will have a bright and sunny weather with no weather interruptions expected in the match.

Venue Details

Bulawayo is one of the premier stadiums in the Zimbabwe circuit and it has hosted the second most matches in Zimbabwe. We expect the scores to be around 150-170 runs in this match. 

 

Toss: To Bat

The pitch tends to slow down and aids the spinners as the match progresses, so we expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss in this match.

Both teams have a host of all-rounders capable of contributing with bat and ball and it came to fore in the first match. Zimbabwe middle order batted a little better than the Namibia and their bowlers pulled the match back despite a good start from Namibia. Namibia will be dejected with the loss after a good opening partnership, and they need to be more consistent with the ball in crunch moments. Zimbabwe has home conditions to their advantage, and we expect them to continue their winning form in this match too.
