AUS vs ZIM: Match Details


  • Date – Friday, September 03, 2022
  • Time – 05:10 AM IST
  • Venue – Tony Ireland Stadium, Townsville

AUS vs ZIM: Match Preview:

Australia have dominated Zimbabwe in the first two ODIs of the series. While the hosts sealed the first ODI with a 5-wicket courtesy of Cameron Green's 5-fer and 57 & 48 runs respectively by Steven Smith and David Warner, Australia completely thrashed the Zimbabwe side after bowling them out for 96 runs. Steven Smith scored 47 runs in the 2nd ODI and has been the leading run scorer in the ongoing series. 

The Australian bowlers haven't shown any mercy to the Zimbabwe batters, bowling them out for a total below the par target against a side like Australia. All-rounder Cameron Green picked up 5 wickets in the first match, while spinner Adam Zampa picked up 3 wickets each in both the ODIs. Starc has grabbed 4 wickets in this series so far, with Josh Hazlewood, Ashton Agar and Mitchell Marsh picking one wicket each. 

Wesley Madhevere has been the top scorer for Zimbabwe in this series with 72 runs in 2 innings. Apart from that, none of the other batters have been able to cross the 50-run mark individually and would look to avoid the clean sweep by pulling off a respectable performance. 

The Zimbabwean bowling more or less has been equally dismal as the batting. Richard Ngarava & Ryan Burl have managed 3 scalps each while Sikandar Raza has one wicket to his name in the top 10 wicket-takers of the series.
