South Africa A are on song and are leading the 5-match unofficial T20 series 2-0 after sealing a 2-1 win in the unofficial ODI series against the hosts. The Heinrich Klaasen-led side won the second match by 22 runs after posting a mammoth target of 224 runs for the loss of just four wickets. They had earlier kicked off their campaign with a thumping 5-wicket win against Sikandar Raza's team. To be precise, Zimbabwe have now lost four matches across formats against a fiery South African side.
The third T20 match will be played once against the Harare Sports Club on May 7. It's Zimbabwe's only chance to fight back and keep the series alive. While we get ready for this exciting game of cricket, let us have a look at the top team bet from the ZIM XI vs SA A match prediction.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the ZIM XI vs SA A head-to-head contest.
The Proteas batters have been in sublime form ever since they landed in Zimbabwe. They scored in excess of 250 in each of the three unofficial ODIs and in the two T20s so far, they have managed to easily chase down a 115-run target in just 17.4 overs before posting 224 runs in the second. On the flip side, Zimbabwe XI have struggled to bat out their full quota of overs. They have been bowled out twice in their last three outings across formats. Their captain Sikandar Raza is the only batsman to have shown some promise. The likes of Reeza Hendricks, Henry Klaseen and Lesiba Ngoepe, who smashed 114 runs in just 63 balls, are making their presence felt on the crease. South Africa international Hendricks scored 138 runs at an average of 46 in the three unofficial ODIs before going on to add 90 runs at an average of 45 in the first two T20s. Captain Klaseen, who has represented South Africa in 28 T20Is, is yet to fire in the T20 series but he aggregated 103 runs at an average of 51.50 in the unofficial ODIs. The team's middle-order also has a knack of making handy contributions in the middle. The African nation is all over Zimbabwe in the bowling department too. Four of the top five highest wicket-takers in the ongoing unofficial T20 series are from the South Africa A squad. Lizaad Williams, Bjorn Fortuin, Glenton Stuurman and Gerald Coetzee have taken four wickets each. All these pointers are strong enough evidence to prove that South Africa A look set to take an unassailable 3-0 lead.
