The final league game of the ongoing tri-series is of no context at all. But the hosts will have a point to prove about their ability in the absence of five of their key players. They have been thumped in all the three matches before but looked a better unit in the previous encounter against Pakistan. But Australia have been too good for them and after losing the game on Thursday, they will be in no mood to experiment going into the final on Sunday. Hamilton Masakadza must have been pleased with the fact his bowlers managed to take the game to the last over against Pakistan and would be hoping that they continue in a similar way. Australia must have realized that their batting is way too dependent on Aaron Finch after the heavy loss they were handed by the Men in Green. Zimbabwe game will provide them with a chance to redeem themselves for the big game which is coming up on weekend.
Best economical pick – Elton Chigumbura is one of his team’s more experienced players, however, he hasn’t been able to deliver the goods for his side. The all-rounder has scored 26 runs in three matches at an average of 13 that doesn’t showcase the potential he has got. In the final match, Chigumbura would want to contribute and help Zimbabwe compete hard against the might of Finch’s troops.
Top captains & vice captains – Aaron Finch scored 172 runs against Zimbabwe when these two teams met last time and broke his own World record for the highest score by a player in a T20I innings which he set in 2013. The Australian captain has been in great form at the moment and is playing some exceptional knocks. He would love to replicate his performance again today against Zimbabwe. Solomon Mire notched the highest individual international Twenty20 score by a Zimbabwean in the last game against Pakistan. He smashed 94 runs off 63 balls, which included six maximums, earnt the 28-year-old man-of-the-match honors in the defeat against Pakistan.
Smart pick – Glenn Maxwell’s performance has been under the scanner of the selectors for quite a while now. In the ongoing series, he has picked up a couple of wickets but hasn’t done anything of sorts with the willow. His last significant performance was quite a while ago and the Victorian would be desperate to gain back his touch.
Cautious Pick – Something is wrong with D’Arcy Short and his batting. He has looked a pale shadow of himself and is down on confidence on this tour. He might get dropped finally after continuous failures and Alex Carey should open along with Aaron Finch.
My XI – Aaron Finch (Captain), Solomon Mire (Vice-Captain), Glenn Maxwell, Elton Chigumbura, Jhye Richardson, Tendai Chisoro, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Andrew Tye, Tarisai Musakanda, Travis Head
