Zimbabwe A will take on South Africa A in the second unofficial Test at the Takashinga Sports Club in Harare from Sunday.
Despite playing at home, Zimbabwe A struggled in the first unofficial Test against South Africa A. Although they posted a creditable 344 runs in their first innings, Zimbabwe's insipid performance with the ball hurt their chances. The batting collapse in their second innings only made matters worse as the hosts ended up losing the match by an innings and 166 runs. Zimbabwe A will be eager to win the second match and restore parity and pride in the series.
South Africa A, on the other hand, continued their dominant run against Zimbabwe A with a clinical performance in the first unofficial Test. They were head and shoulders above their opponents and comfortably won the game without any hiccups. Zubayr Hamza, Ryan Rickelton and Daryn Dupavillon were the stars for South Africa A in the first unofficial Test.
