Harare Sports Club Pitch Report
It’s a balanced wicket for both bowlers and batters we often see great competition between bat and ball at this venue. However, the pitch tends to offer slightly more benefits to the batters as the game progresses. Spinners will have their say in the middle overs as it is a used wicket with a lot of wear and tear.
The toss winner should opt to bat first on this pitch looking at the condition and its a ground known for defending targets. In the last game at this venue, Zimbabwe restricted mighty West Indies to just 233 runs while chasing 268 runs. Both spinners and pacers of Zimbabwe bowled at the tight line and gave West Indians no chance to hit them.
It will be an uphill task for the USA to beat Zimbabwe which is in such a sublime form.
