SIN vs ZIM Dream11 : Zimbabwe and Singapore square off in the final league stag encounter to determine the toppers of the series
When the T20 Tri-Series between Singapore, Zimbabwe and Nepal was conceptualised, this series was said to be nothing more than an opportunity for Singapore to face off with some staunch cricketing countries. However, the side have been quick to show that they are most than just fillers in the series, imbedding some tantalising displays, meticulously crafted performances to emerge with a new colossal stature.
Whilst Singapore’s exuberant nature as a cricketing nature was never in doubt with the cricket culture in the country being one of excellence with the side being regarded as one of the most exciting sides in the cricketing fraternity, this series has truly done justice to their hardwork. The side sprung to the attention of the global stage when they defeated Zimbabwe by 4 overs, a result which reverberated across the international fraternity to see the side win hearts with their diminutiveness.
With a defeat against Nepal and the one abandoned result against them yesterday, Singapore today sit in a position where they can end up atop of the league standings if they defeat Zimbabwe for a second time today. The culminating encounter of the series is a befitting one, a match which will see the winner be cascaded with first place, a prize which is set to see the level of cricket be stupendous today.
Zimbabwe meanwhile managed to recover from their chastening loss to Singapore with a win over Nepal in their previous encounter, a result which saw them get the better of Nepal on both the occasions they met them in the league. Currently occupying a place in the echelons of the league, the side will be looking to herald in another win and not only avenge their defeat to Singapore but also finally see themselves get a much longed for series win.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain continues to remain the biggest worry ahead of today’s clash with yesterday’s fixture being curtailed due to incessant rainfall, weather conditions which are prevelant today as well. The wetness seeped into the track will help the pacers early on but nothing too much to take away from the sheen of a wicket which has been laid out for high scoring encounters.
With rain in the air, the side winning today’s toss will be looking to step out and field first.

He’s been the focal point of his side’s batting efforts, putting in exuberant and zestful displays, one which have been a testament to his enterprising nature as a bat.

SIN vs ZIM Dream11 All-Rounders
We begin this facet with Zimbabwe’s Season Williams. His two 50s and six wickets in three matches have seen hi finally put in a spree of good displays, something which was lacking from his game for quite some time now. A key figure for the side with the bat and ball, his dual role makes him excellent value for today’s imminent encounter.
Ryan Burl left us mesmerised with his 100 against Nepal in the first match for the side, a knock which revelled us is a sublime and pristine display of clean batting and expansive strokeplay, seeing him become the second player from the visiting unit. Tinotenda Mutombodzi completes the trio of selection from the side while fro Singapore we have gone in with Janak Prakash.
SIN vs ZIM Dream11 Bowling Order
If Singapore are to restrain Zimbabwe today and entrap them in a turmoil akin to the last time when they managed to defeat them, they’ll need their bowling unit to be at the fore of their abilities. We envisage them to deliver a wicket to wicket line and length, seeing us pick out the duo of captain Amjad Mahmood and Aahan-Gopinath Achar while Tendai Chatara comes in as the singular player from the visiting side.

We are opting for Burl as our unit’s captain for today whilst Williams is being made the vice-captain.
