The third T20I between Zimbabwe (ZIM) and Namibia (NAM) is set to take place at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo on Saturday.

ZIM vs NAM, 3rd T20I
Date and Time: 21st May 2022, 6:30 PM IST
Venue: Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo
The pitch at the Queens Sports Club is a decent one to bat on despite there being some help on offer for the bowlers. The new ball shouldn't do much, allowing batters to maximize the powerplay phase. As the match progresses, the spinners will come into play given the amount of turn on offer. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 150 being a good total at this venue.
Today’s ZIM vs NAM Dream11 match top picks
Regis Chakabva: Regis Chakabva has not scored many runs in this series and has been unable to get going in the powerplay phase. However, he has a lot of experience playing in this format and has the ability to take on both pace and spin, thus holding him in good stead ahead of this game.
Gerhard Erasmus: Gerhard Erasmus has been steady with the bat in this series, holding fort in the middle overs. While his knack of batting deep is a big bonus for his side, Erasmus can add value with his bowling as well. Erasmus is one to watch out for in this game.
Sikandar Raza: Sikandar Raza has blown hot and cold for Zimbabwe, showing glimpses of his experience and talents. While Raza is likely to bat in the top-order, all eyes will be on his bowling prowess given the nature of the track. With the all-rounder due for a big game, he is a must-have in your ZIM vs NAM Dream11 fantasy team.
Rubel Trumpelmann: Rubel Trumpelmann was the star of the show in the previous game, churning out a brilliant spell in the middle and death overs. While the angle he bowls from because of him being a left-armer serves him well, his ability to generate extra pace and bounce makes him a dangerous proposition. Given his form, Trumpelmann should be a good addition to your ZIM vs NAM Dream11 fantasy team.
