WI vs ZIM – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview
According to critics, West Indies failed in the last game against Scotland because they didn’t play the game professionally. The batters chose to hit some bad shots and they dug the hole for the whole team while chasing the target given by the Scottish batsmen. The team management will be expecting the batters to do a better job and bounce back in the tournament against Zimbabwe.
There are no major changes expected in the squad except for Kyle Mayers. Mayers completely lost the rhythm of his bowling against Scotland and recorded an economy of 12 in 2 overs without any wickets. Alzarri Joseph and Jason Holder will be expected to maintain the same momentum as the last game as they both picked up 2 wickets each.
The major point of concern in the batting lineup of the West Indies squad. The middle order of the squad will have to play more smartly and will have to maintain the momentum of scoring runs. Evin Lewis will be the primary player to watch out for in the upcoming fixture.
Zimbabwe had a brilliant start to their world cup campaign as they defeated Ireland by 31 runs. They shall now look to win this fixture and secure their place in the Super 12. The year 2022 has turned out to be a good year for the team and after a long wait, they have become a part of the ICC T20 World Cup tournament. The squad will be motivated to continue their momentum of winning and defeating West Indies on Wednesday.
Regis Chakabva and Craig Ervine are expected to open the inning and Wesley Madhevere will bat at the one-down position. Chakabva didn’t have a good start to the tournament in the first game but he is a talented batter and is expected to play a crucial inning on Thursday. Sikander Raza turned out to be the hero of the match and is expected to play a similar role against the West Indies bowlers.
Team management won’t change anything in the bowling section but Luke Jongwe will be on their watch as he did a horrible job against Ireland.
