ZIM vs NL Team Previews


Zimbabwe made a winning start to their ODI World Cup Qualifier campaign as they defeated Nepal quite convincingly in the opening fixture. As 3 teams from each group are going to get promoted to the Super Sixes after the Group stages, Zimbabwe is one of the favorites to make it there.

The seamers did an excellent job for the team in the opening match. Richard Ngrava was particularly impressive, picking up 4 wickets for just 43 runs. Blessing Muzarabani and Tendai Chatara chipped in too, picking up 1 wicket each.

The team will be heavily dependent on Wellington Masakadza during the middle overs as the all-rounders went wicketless. The most heartening feature of Zimbabwe’s performance on Sunday was its batting as skipper Craig Ervine and Sean Williams scored individual half-centuries to make small work of the 291-run target.

The duo put up a 164-run partnership for the 4th wicket to ensure that Zimbabwe won comfortably and also managed to extract a good NRR. Zimbabwe has plenty of strong performers with the bat lower down the order, including Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, and Clive Madande, all of whom are capable of scoring runs, especially at the death.

The Netherlands began its Super League journey on a positive note, as it defeated Ireland 2-1 in a home series in June 2021. However, that was the only piece of good news that the team would receive for a long time as they went on a losing spree, which was broken when they defeated Zimbabwe earlier this year. Nevertheless, the Netherlands finished at the bottom of the Super League table with just 2 wins from 34 matches.

The Netherlands had to face quite a few selection issues in the lead-up to this tournament as many of their high-profile players are missing out on this tournament due to County commitments. The likes of Roelof van der Merwe, Colin Ackerman, Shane Snater, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren, and Brandon Glover will miss out on this series.

This means that wicketkeeper captain Scott Edwards will be leading a largely inexperienced side here. Max O’Dowd and Vikram Singh will likely open the batting for the Netherlands here. With Wesley Barresi and Teja Nidamanuru featuring in the middle order.

Noah Croes and Scott Edwards add depth to the batting. The Netherlands has plenty of spin options inviting Shariz Ahmad, Aryan Dutt, Clayton Floyd, and Saqib Zulfiqar. Logan Van Beek and Bas De Leede will lead the pace attack along with Vivian Kingma and Ryan Klein.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Harare Sports Club is good to bat on as the ball comes nicely onto the bat. However, the quicker bowlers will be able to extract some movement from the surface early on but the pitch will settle down as the game progresses. A score of around 280 is a par score here. The weather will be clear with temperatures of between 20-25 degrees Celsius. 


ZIM vs NL Betting Tips

Looking at the on-paper strength of both teams, the home team has a clear advantage here. The Netherlands are missing some of their key players and they are likely to struggle here, especially as the Zimbabwean batting looks in solid form.

Bet on Zimbabwe to win.
