The surface at Harare is a pretty balanced one when it comes to ODIs. Furthermore, teams will prefer chasing down a target here rather than batting first. Therefore, the team winning the toss should look to bowl first. However, they must also try to keep the opposition under control and not allow them to score runs freely.
