Venue: Harare Sports Club, Harare
The pitch will be slightly on the slower side in Harare, allowing the spinners to rule the roost. There is not much swing on offer for the pacers, with the batters likely to target the powerplay field restrictions. A change of pace will be difficult to negotiate for the batters, who will need to spend some time in the middle before shifting gears. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to prefer batting first upon winning the toss.
Today’s ZIM vs BAN Dream11 match top picks
Litton Das: Litton Das showed why he is so highly-rated in this format, scoring a 33-ball 56 at the top of the order in the last game. He is a naturally attack-minded batter who can take on both the pacers and spinners. Given his form and ability, Litton should be a no-brainer in your ZIM vs BAN Dream11 fantasy team.
Craig Ervine: Craig Ervine's woeful form in this format continued in the previous game as he couldn't get going in the powerplay overs. While his form doesn't hold him in good stead, the Zimbabwe captain is an experienced player with a knack for playing big knocks at times of need. With Ervine due for a big one, he is one to watch out for in this game.
Sikandar Raza: Sikandar Raza has been the standout batter for Zimbabwe in the series, scoring two fifties on the trot. The all-rounder even earned a promotion in the batting order in the previous game, indicating his superior form. With Raza chipping in with the ball as well, he is a must-have in your ZIM vs BAN Dream11 fantasy team.
Mustafizur Rahman: Mustafizur Rahman has blown hot and cold in the series, but has still taken three wickets in two games. He is a crafty bowler whose clever off-cutters are highly-rated in this format. With Mustafizur likely to bowl predominantly in death overs, his chances of picking up wickets are bound to be higher, making him a good addition to your ZIM vs BAN Dream11 fantasy team.
