Zimbabwe vs Netherlands Pitch Report
The wicket is expected to be well-suited for both the batters and the bowlers. However, initial few overs of the pacers would be a bit tough. The batters need to play out that phase. The longer boundaries shall be used to good effect by the bowlers. Thus, the batters should look to work on running between the wickets. The weather forecast for the day fixture seems to be clear and we might get a full 20-over game.
