Namibia made a brilliant comeback in the second T20I to level the series 1-1 against the hosts Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe were outplayed by the visitors and will need to get their act right in this match to get back the lost lead. They have been the second-best team in the African soil after the South Africans and will need to win this match to further strengthen their name in cricketing world. Namibia has already made giant strides in the T20I format qualifying for the 2022 WC by advancing to super-12 in 2021 WC. They will further look to make themselves a strong force in the T20Is with a win in this series against Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe elected to bat first after winning the toss but were left to regret the decision as they were reeling at 49/5 at the start of 12th over. Donald Tiripano (18 runs), Milton Shumba (29 runs), Tony Munbhaga (23 runs), and Ryan Burl (16 runs) played little cameos to take their team to a respectable total of 122/8 in their 20 overs.

Their bowlers were never really in the game with this target. Luke Jongwe and Tendai Chatara chipped in with a wicket each and bowled economically under 6 RPO. Milton Shumba, Brandon Mavuta, and Ryan Burl went for runs at over 8 RPO as the opposition easliy chased the target in 18 overs.

Top players to bet on: Milton Shumba, Luke Jongwe, Donald Tiripano

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Regis Chakabva (wk), Wesley Madhevere, Craig Ervine (c), Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Tendai Chatara, Luke Jongwe, Richmond Mutumbani, Donald Tiripano, Tony Munyonga

Skipper Craig Williams lead their innings with a knock of 63* off 53 balls while Gerhard Erasmus chipped in with a vital 36 runs to build 75-run partnership for the second wicket. David Wiese gave the finishing touches with a couple of big hits in the middle order.

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 140-160 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.

Namibia had an all-round day with the bat and ball as they won the match comfortably to level the series. They will be high on confidence and momentum is on their side in this contest. Zimbabwe will be looking to improve their batting performance especially after the top order collapse in the last game. They have good understanding of the home conditions and might hold an upper hand slightly but T20 cricket is all about form and confidence. We expect Namibia to win this match and carry their momentum ahead.
