Zimbabwe will be at loggerheads with Namibia in the 2nd of the five match T20I series which is a part of Namibia’s tour of Zimbabwe 2022. The match which is scheduled to take place on May 19 will be hosted at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. Ahead of the match day, I have with me three of the best money making betting tips for you from the ZIM vs NAM head-to-head contest.
Tendai Chandra’s brilliant last over saw the hosts clinch a narrow 7 run victory over Namibia in the first of the five match T20I series. Chandra defended 14 runs in the last over laced with a couple of yorkers and also claimed the wicket of dangerous looking Zane Green who had breached the boundary twice at the death. After a 67 run stand for the opening wicket, Zimbabwe spinners halted spirited Namibia’s plans of chasing down 154 as Milton Shumba picked up three for 16. Despite debutant Divan La Cook’s best efforts with the bat (66 off 43) the visitors failed to close in a victory. Earlier, W Madhevere and R Chakabva started things off on a positive note for Zimbabwe scoring 33 inside the first four overs. But the two of them were dismissed inside two overs leaving ZIM struggling for 44 at the expense of two. Skipper C Ervine and S Raza steadied ZIM’s sinking ship and added 71 runs for the third wicket to help their side post a respectable total on the board. Ervine remained unbeaten for his well fought 55 off 39 deliveries which was laced with three fours and as many sixes. ZIM who were using this series to prepare for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier in July will breathe a sigh of relief after they managed to keep the visitors right under their watch. The hosts would look forward to stretching this series lead with another win. As we gear up for this thrilling contest, let us have a look at the top team & player betting tips from the ZIM vs NAM match prediction.
