South Africa vs Zimbabwe 2nd T20 Ballebaazi Fantasy Cricket Preview

There is not much left to be said in this series. Everything we say will be repeating itself. Zimbabwe came as a weak team in this series, but the way they have played till now has been disappointing. The reason may be anything, but there was no fight in their body language. It felt like they came as a defeated side on this tour. They could have exploited the opportunity to improve their game but was all in vain. There are not a lot of expectation from this game as well, just a hope that Zimbabwe can pull through in at least one game. South Africa, on the other hand, got a chance to exploit their bench strength which can be considered a work in progress. And they need to work very hard on it. Let us take a look at the probable playing 11 for this game.

South Africa

They would want to finish this series with a convincing win in this game. They might not make any unexpected changes. The team is fine the way they are playing. Tahir has been rested which gives a golden opportunity to Shamsi to show his potential in the next twoT20s. Rassie van der Dussen impressed everyone with a fifty in his debut match, so he is also not going anywhere. Apart from Tahir, there should not be any change in the team for the next two games until they want to try something new in the last game.

Zimbabwe

There is no special card left for them to play. They will be probably playing the same team as it is the best that they have got right now. The only hope would be to at least get a fighting chance instead of being slaughtered in every match. This is a do-or-die match for them, and they will have to show that in their game. We cannot expect any miracle to happen, but even a good game of cricket could boost the team’s morale. Solomon Mire, Hamilton Masakadza, Brendan Taylor and Elton Chigumbura are the only players who can make that happen. They will have to give in everything they have left.
