WI vs ZIM Dream11 Match Preview
West Indies lost their first game by 42 runs against Scotland. Their batters failed miserably and there were many poor decisions from the captaincy perspective as well. The middle order threw away their wickets when they needed to bat sensibly. Consistency with the bat has been a big concern for the Windies in T20Is. Their batters need to be consistent if they are to qualify for the Super 12 round.
The bowling looks in a good position with the likes of Jason Holder, Alarri Joseph and Obed McCoy bowling well. Holder and Joseph both have been in excellent form recently and will be the main bowlers for their side. Akeal Hosein will be their lone spinner while Odean Smith and Kyle Mayers will bowl a few overs between them. West Indies need to be disciplined as a team and must win this game to keep their hopes alive for qualifying for the Super 12 Round.Also Read: UAE’s Karthik Meiyappan bags the first hat-trick of T20 World Cup 2022
Zimbabwe started their 2022 T20 World Cup journey in style as they defeated Ireland by 31 runs in their opening game of the tournament. Their batting unit is over-dependent on Sikandar Raza and the others need to step up with the bat, especially senior batters like Sean Williams and Craig Ervine. Their lower order is in good form with the bat.
Zimbabwe bowled really well and they’ll look to continue that in this game as well. Richard Ngarava swung the new ball while Blessing Muzarabani exploited the conditions to the fullest and didn’t allow the Irish batters to settle in. Tendai Chatara also bowled well and picked up 2 wickets. Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza will be the spinners. Luke Jongwe is also there for the death overs with his variations. Zimbabwe is in good form as a team and they’ll look to win this game and strengthen their chances of qualifying for the next round.
