Harare is expected to have a bright and sunny with just 20% chances of rain as per the forecasters. We expect rain to make no appearance in this game.
Harare is expected to sport a new track which has a good bounce and carry on it. The ball might fly of the bat with a quick outfield and we can expect a run feast of 150-160 runs on this track. Bowlers might find some assistance with the new ball especially.
Chasing is the safe and most trusted option in the T20Is matches off late and both captains will look to bowl first if they win the toss.
Zimbabwe has experience of playing in ODIs against Bangladesh and Ireland but they failed miserably in those matches especially against Bangladesh. But they have home conditions to their advantage in this match. Thailand have very less experience playing the 50-over format but they recently beat Zimbabwe 2-1 in the T20I matches in Zimbabwe soil which will give them confidence. We expect Thailand to win this match owing to their recent success against the opposition.
Thailand will win the match
