Harare Sports Club’s pitch has been a very competitive track in the recent past, and it has supported both batters and bowlers in recent matches. The pitch has an even amount of bounce, and the batters can play their shots accordingly at their merit.
In the initial overs of the match, the pacers can swing the ball due to the surroundings, whereas the spinners will come into play in the middle overs. The outfield of the ground is fast enough, and the batters will get rewarded for their good shots.

In the last match between both sides, Zimbabwe managed to score 135 runs in the first innings and lost the match easily. There are some big boundaries on this ground, and the spinners can take advantage of them. Bangladesh’s Mosaddek Hossain did the same in the last match and took a fifer.
Both teams would want to chase first after winning the toss as the teams generally want to chase in this format of the game. The overcast conditions would encourage the teams as well in chasing.
