Zimbabwe Preview

Zimbabwe got a good start despite the wicket of Innocent Kaia with Wesley Madhevere (50 runs) and Craig Ervine (32 runs) making a 50-run partnership for the second wicket. But their middle order suffered a collapse from 82/1 to 114/6 before the duo of Mutumbani (27 runs) and Luke Jongwe (19 runs) played some quick-fire cameos to take them to competitive total of 157/8 in the 20 overs.

Their bowlers were unable to defend the total as they lost the match in a last ball finish. Tendai Chatara, Evans, and Sikander Raza had a combined figures of 10-0-64-2 and controlled the run flow effectively. Luke Jongwe took 2 wickets but went for runs at over 8.5 RPO alongside Victor Nyachi and Wesley Madhevere in the last game.

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing XI:

Namibia Preview

Namibia chased down the highest total of the series with their batting duo of Michael Van Lingen and Gerhard Erasmus making fifties in the match. Loftie-Eaton played a crucial cameo while Zane Green finished the match with a boundary in the last ball. David Wiese and Craig Williams good depth and firepower to their batting line-up.

Bernard Scholtz ran through the opposition line-up with figures of 4-0-25-3 in the match while the trio of David Wiese, Jan Frylinck and Pikka Ya France chipped in with a wicket each in the match. Ben Shikongo and Rupen Trumpelmann were very economical with the ball in hand and did their job to perfection in the last game.

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 Bowl

The pitch is good for batting and the early moisture on track might help the bowlers considerably. We expect both captains to chase the total as batting second is having good success in the recent matches played here.

Zimbabwe made a good target of 157 runs despite only a big collapse in their middle order. Their top order is slightly inconsistent, and bowlers need to tighten the screws in middle overs effectively. Namibia will be high on confidence after winning the crucial match and will always look to improve their weaker areas and get their maiden series victory over Zimbabwe. We expect Zimbabwe to win this match owing to their home advantage in this series.

Zimbabwe will the match and series 3-2
