ABOUT THE MATCH

Having registered a convincing 5-wicket win over Zimbabwe, hosts South Africa will be favourites to win this match as well and seal the three match ODI series. The scoreline suggests that the first match was tighter than it should’ve been and the Proteas will want to do a better job in this one.

Match Preview

South Africa have now won 28 ODIs on the trot against Zimbabwe and they will want to make it one more. Overall this could be their 37th win over the visitors.

iconSouth Africa Team News

Despite missing the batting trio of Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock from the series, there is enough in this South Africa team to take on Zimbabwe. But their batting wasn’t quite up to the mark as they lost 5 wickets chasing a target of 118. Stand-in skipper JP Duminy will want more from his team.

The bowling was quite good with Lungi Ngidi picking 3 wickets and three others picking up 2 apiece.

iconZimbabwe Team News

As many as 7 Zimbabwe batsmen could score only in single digits in the first ODI as they succumbed to their lowest ever ODI score against South Africa. Hamilton Masakadza knows that his side’s batting really needs to improve if they are to win this match to stay alive in the series.

Their bowling department did a very good job trying to defend that paltry total. It is Zimbabwe’s bowling that gives them any slight hope coming into this match considering the fact that South Africa are missing 3 of their main batsmen.

Pitch Conditions

 

The Manguang Oval pitch in Bloemfontein is quite hard but will offer some bounce to the bowlers. The first ODI at the Diamond Oval saw bowlers from both sides thrive and that could be the pattern here as well. Compared to the first ODI, a more pleasant day is expected with partly cloudy skies.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss is likely to bowl first.

Our Match Prediction

South Africa should win this one comfortably and seal the series 2-0.
