Zimbabwe vs New Zealand 3rd ODI Predictions and Preview Who Will Win 07 Aug 2015
New Zealand won the second ODI, so now all the eyes will be on New Zealand vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI as both the teams have the chance to win the series. Whoever wins the last ODI will win the series. This is exactly the situation that the fans hope for if a 3 ODI series is going on. The best part is that both the teams are looking equal in terms of batting or bowling strength. But one thing is also clear that it is really easy to chase any total in this wicket.
Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura won the toss and decided to go for batting first, this was a surprising move for many as many thought that they would chose to ball first after the very successful 300 plus run chase in the first game. Anyway, since Zimbabwe batsmen are in form every one thought that they are planning to put up a big total that New Zealand will find hard to chase. Zimbabwe team was high in confidence and they were determined to lead the series by 2-0, but the cricket is the most uncertain game in the universe and everything can change just in couple of over.
Zimbabwe opener Hamilton Masakadza looked really confident against the New Zealand medium pacers and he was unable to score even a single run. He went back to the pavilion for a duck but by then he already played 13 games. So this gave his team a really bad start, other opener Chamu Chibhabha however played confidently and managed to score a brilliant 42 in just 44 balls. Apart from this, it was only Sikandar Raza who played well in Zimbabwe innings. Sikandar in fact scored a century and it was because of him that the Zimbabwe team was managed to take their total to 235 in 50 over. If Zimbabwe is hoping to win the 3rd ODI then their batsmen need to have better defense against the World class New Zealand pace attack. The team management needs to talk to the batsmen as most of them looked really uncomfortable and their footwork was also very bad. Among the New Zealand bowlers Ish Sodhi was most impressive, he took 3 wickets and gave away only 38 runs in 10 over. None of the Zimbabwe batsmen showed impressive footwork against his bowling.
New Zealand looked confident in the 1st ODI too, they scored more than 300 and their top order batsmen are in good form. In the 2nd ODI too their batsmen came to the wickets with a lot of confidence. They needed 236 runs to win the match, and the team was able to make the total in just 42.2 over without losing a single wicket. The openers Martin Guptill and Tom Latham were in tremendous form and both of them scored flawless centuries. If they play like this in New Zealand vs Zimbabwe 3rd ODI then the hosts are surely in trouble. In the first two ODI matches none of the Zimbabwe bowlers were able to give these two openers any kind of trouble whatsoever.
Zimbabwe needs to get back their first ODI confidence and treat the last ODI of the series as a new game. Both the teams need to win the next game. But the team who is able to hold the nerve better will win the series now. We also predict that the toss will play a very important role in New Zealand vs Zimbabwe next game. Weather report is saying that there will be no chance of rain, so the fans can definitely expect for another exciting cricket match.
