T20 World Cup: Zimbabwe Vs Netherlands Match Preview

Zimbabwe and Netherlands will face each other in the 34th match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide on Nov 2.

Zimbabwe has played well in this tournament and is still in the race to qualify for the semi-finals. Craig Ervine and the team lost to Bangladesh narrowly in their last match.

However, they will fancy their chances on Wednesday. The likes of Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza are in the form of their lives. Both Williams and Raza will play a crucial role against Netherlands. Zimbabwe is the clear favourites to win against Netherlands.

For Netherlands, four out of their six games in this World Cup including the first round – saw tight finishes. They won two of those four matches before India and Pakistan brushed them aside. But as their bowlers showed by dismissing four batters and making Pakistan work hard even in their chase of 92, Netherlands aren’t easy to push over.

Although they are already out of the tournament after threatening to upset Bangladesh in their first game of the Super 12s, the Dutch have certainly left their mark. After all, Max O’Dowd is the World Cup’s fifth-highest run-scorer and Bas de Leede is its joint second-highest wicket-taker.

Zimbabwe and Netherlands don’t meet often – they have played each other only seven times across formats so far – No. 8 will be on the biggest stage and both teams will be relishing it.

Zimbabwe Probable Playing XI: Regis Chakabva (w), Sean Williams, Craig Ervine (c), Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Tendai Chatara, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava, Luke Jongwe

Netherlands Probable Playing XI: Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, Bas de Leede, Colin Ackermann, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards (c & wk), Roelof van der Merwe, Tim Pringle, Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren

Pitch and Weather

It was cold and windy in the build-up to the game in Adelaide, and it might still be cold on Wednesday with up to 2mm of rain also expected. However, the game is unlikely to be affected.

The match will begin at 9.30 AM IST. In India, the game will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network. Online viewers can follow the live-action via Disney+Hotstar.
