ABOUT THE MATCH

South Africa have already sealed the 3-match ODI series 2-0. They have dominated both the matches so far and are certain to coast through this one as well.

Match Preview

The last 29 ODIs between these two nations have been won by South Africa. On the evidence of what we’ve seen from the first two matches of this series so far, there is very little to suggest that Zimbabwe can stop it from turning 30.

iconSouth Africa Team News

Despite the relative ease with which they won the second match and the series, South Africa have struggled with the bat and have certainly missed the injured batting trio of Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock.

Thankfully for them, Dale Steyn – making his return to ODIs after almost 2 years, notched up his first ODI 50 and also bagged 2 wickets. Imran Tahir also impressed, getting a hat-trick on his way to 6 wickets. The Proteas will look for more from these two at Paarl.

iconZimbabwe Team News

While their bowling has impressed, restricting South Africa to under 200, it is Zimbabwe’s batting that has let them down. In the first match, there were 7 players who finished with single digit scores. In the second match, as many as 9 Zimbabwean batsmen scored 10 runs or less. That needs to improve if they have any hope of winning this one and getting some consolation.

Pitch Conditions

 

It will be a slightly cloud day at Paarl with no hint of rain. The Boland Park pitch is known to throw a few surprises and while it can assist the batsmen in scoring big, there can be some turn and bounce on the track as well. After Steyn and Tahir’s antics at Bloemfontein, you can expect the same here as well.

Toss Prediction

 

If South Africa win the toss, they will elect to bat. Zimbabwe will most likely choose to field.

Our Match Prediction

South Africa to win this one comfortably as well and seal the series 3-0.
