ZIM vs NED :
Zimbabwe and Netherlands will battle it out in an epic three-match ODI series commencing on Tuesday, March 21.
ZIM vs NED Match overview
Zimbabwe have been a source of pride lately, having scored a notable ODI win against Australia in their own backyard last year, and recently drawing an even series with Ireland – not to mention their victory over Bangladesh at home.
This instils confidence that they may very well perform well in the upcoming series, considering the stalwart strides they’ve taken towards revitalizing their cricketing prowess.
Their vivacity has been palpable, coupled with a tenacious spirit that will be put to the test as they enter this latest challenge.
The Netherlands are a reeling force after enduring an abysmal 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Pakistan in their last series.
Their confidence is sagging, having been winless in their past 15 ODIs, but they’ll attempt to make a resplendent comeback in spite of the adversity.
This Dutch side has faced such predicaments before and shown mettle – it’s now time for them to actuate this experience and demonstrate true brio as they strive for redemption.

ZIM vs NED Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match
Sikander Raza had a phenomenal year in 2022, amassing 645 runs across both limited-overs formats.
His incredible stats, including three centuries and two fifties, prompted Punjab Kings to sign him for the IPL – an apt reward for his stupendous form.
To sharpen up ahead of the tournament, Raza will be looking to maintain this fluency as he looks to extend his streak of outstanding performances.
Probable best bowler of the Match
Blessing Muzarabani had a remarkable 2022 campaign, amassing an impressive 12 wickets in just six innings at an average of 24.08 and a miserly economy rate of 5.11 – a testament to his prowess with the new ball.
The 26-year-old is likely to befuddle Dutch batsmen with his searing pace and unerring accuracy, making him a feared opponent on the cricket field.
