Zimbabwe and Netherlands are going to face each other for the 2nd ODI tomorrow at Harare.
Furthermore, in the first ODI, the visitors put on a great show as they beat Zimbabwe by 3 wickets. They will now look to seal the series tomorrow itself.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe will look to improve from their mistakes and win the 2nd ODI to level the series with the Netherlands.
Talking more about the first game, then Zimbabwe didn’t have a good enough game in the 1st ODI as they were reduced to 98 for 7 in just 20.4 overs. But, a fighting 74 from Clive Madande and 34 and 35 from Wellington Masakadza and Richard Ngarava helped the hosts put up a decent target.
However, the score was an easy one to chase for the Netherlands and they did so with one ball to spare.
Therefore, we have an exciting game tomorrow between these two teams.
