SA vs ZIM Dream11 Match Predictions
Zimbabwe Tour of South Africa
After securing 34 runs win in the first T20I, South Africa would be eyeing to clinch another win and name the 3-match T20I series when both the teams reload for the second T20I at Potchefstroom on Friday night. Hosts have already named the three-match ODI series by five wickets, 120 runs and four wickets. And after such a fine start, they would be hoping a clean sweep in T20I series as well.
With the help of Imran Tahir’s fifer, hosts were able to restrict Zimbabwe on 126 in 17.2 overs after posting 160-6 while batting first in the first T20I. However, they have released the leg-spinner from the squad to focus on Tabraiz Shamsi. While Imran Tahir bagged 10 wickets in the ODIs and was awarded the Player of the Series, Shamsi has not looked fully confident. Shamsi went wicketless in the third ODI as well as in the first T20I which can be a little worrisome for the Proteas management.
On the opposite, Zimbabwe has not been able to secure a win in their entire tour so far despite giving tough competition in the ODIs. They would be hoping to bounce back and secure a win to prevent the series from turning into a dead rubber. The biggest concern for Zimbabwe is their batting department. Batters have failed to produce match-winning knocks and give support to bowlers.
