The pitch at Harare is more suitable for batters than bowlers when it comes to ODI cricket. Moreover, pacers will give a hard time to batters during the latter portion of the innings when the ball gets old. But, batters can still make great use of the wicket and play their best shots as well. Thus, the skipper winning the toss should opt to bowl first here. Furthermore, the average first innings score at this venue is 281.
