ZIM vs USA Team Previews


Zimbabwe is going into this game with a victory in their last match. They have remained unbeaten in their World Cup qualification campaign so far. Due to this impeccable record, they have already qualified for the 2023 World Cup main draw. Now, they will be looking to test different combinations for the team before the actual world cup. In their last game, the Zimbabwe team did the unthinkable to beat the powerful West Indies outfit to secure a place in the World Cup. 

Now Zimbabwe will be looking to test their team and ensure that they have a strong and fixed playing eleven for the World Cup. The West Indies skipper won the toss in this game and asked the Zimbabwe team to bat first. The Zimbabwe team would have been happy to accept this decision. They managed to score a decent target of 268 runs against a strong West Indian bowling lineup. This target kept their hopes of winning the game alive. The top run-getter for Zimbabwe was Sikandar Raza. He scored a brisk 68 from 58 balls to get the Zim to a respectable total.

The Zimbabwean bowling attack had a task on their hands to try and do an excellent restriction job over West Indies. The Zimbabwean bowling attack responded to the challenge well by bowling out their opponents for 233 runs. They recorded a 35-run victory in the end. It was a terrific effort under the circumstances. The pick of the bowlers for Zimbabwe was Tendal Chatara who picked up 3 wickets in the game. Some of the key players for Zimbabwe in this game against the USA are Sikandar Raza, Tendai Chatara, Ryan Burl, and Richard Nagarava.

The United States of America has had a qualifying round they would like to forget. They are already out of the competition and cannot qualify for the main draw from here on. The USA team lost all the 3 games they played in the qualifier and this game will just be of academic interest. They will be looking to learn from it and come back strong in their next attempt. It is a fact that the USA team had to face many heartbreaking losses this year. As they have not won a single game so far, they will be playing for pride in this encounter. Some key players for the US are Jasdeep Singh, Ali Khan, Nisarg Patel, and Shayan Jahangir.

The USA side will be hoping to get some wins from here on and spoil the party for some of the teams in the competition. The USA top order once again collapsed in their last game. It was left to some heroics by Shayan Jahangir to get the score up to a respectable one. If not for this effort the USA team would have struggled quite a bit. The wicketkeeper-batsman played well and his inning propelled the USA score to 211 runs from their quota of 50 overs. Another useful knock was played by Jessy Singh who scored 38 runs from 53 balls.

The US bowling attack was burdened with the massive task of doing a restriction job for this smallish total. They were asked to defend a target that was too low. But the Dutch batters in any event made light work of the target. They succeeded in winning the game in just 44 overs and won it with a margin of 5 wickets in the end. The American bowlers could not make any early inroads into the Dutch batting order. Although they did pick up 5 wickets it was nowhere close to being enough to beat the Netherlands. The pick of the bowlers for the U.S. was Jasdeep Singh who picked up 2 victims for 35 runs.

Steven Taylor, Sushant Modani, Monank Patel, Aaron Jones, Gajanand Singh, Shayan Jahangir, Nisarg Patel, Nosthush Kenjige, Jessy Singh, Abhishek Paradkar, Usman Rafiq.
