The first game between these two teams will be played at Harare; this ground is known for helping the medium pace bowlers.

But this ground also later becomes very good for batting and that is why the team who wins the toss always selects to send the opposition for batting. There will be 3 ODI matches in the series; the team who will be able to win first ODI match of the series will get a much needed advantage in the series.
