New Zealand have outclassed Zimbabwe but even the visitors have made it an easy tour to date with undisciplined batting and bowling. The 2nd ODI result did not reflect how much Zimbabwe improved as they reached 231. All Zimbabwe need now is to mix batting with bowling to have the best chance of knocking a game off the enthusiastic Kiwi’s.
Match Information :
9th February, Napier
Starting Time: 1400 Local Time
How the Teams Stand:
Zimbabwe’s problems were with the bat earlier this your but a brilliant batting performance in the 2nd ODI should of got a close game but again the inconsistency of the team shows with the bowlers not being able to do the job. New Zealand were fearless in the 2nd ODI and they were hitting almost everything out of the middle of the bat which helped guide them to a total over 350. Zimbabwe are looking to build up and keep an international test status but to do that and move forward they need to start gelling as a team with bat and ball to either win a match or make a close match.
