After a disappointing end to their ODI series against Ireland, Zimbabwe will now face Scotland for a three-match T20I series. They would be happy moving back to the shortest version of the game as they looked more comfortable in that format against Ireland.
The first match of the series against Scotland is to be played at Grange Cricket Club, Edinburgh on 15th September 2021. Given that Zimbabwe did a fair job against Ireland a few weeks ago and Scotland are playing at home, this match promises to be a mouth-watering encounter. A cracker of a contest is definitely on the cards.
It's been a while since Scotland last played an international game and this upcoming series is certainly something that they were waiting for. They will be desperate to do here and produce some favorable results and they certainly have a side to do it. Also, we have seen them pull off some great upsets in recent times and that would boost their confidence by a massive extend.
Scotland will be taking this short series as a dress rehearsal for The ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021, which is set to begin in less than a couple of months' time. While Scotland do have the services of Kyle Coetzer and Richard Berrington available, the absence of Brad Wheal and Josh Davey could prove to be a telling factor.
All in all, they have a decent side but would need to get going right from the outset. Although, they do have the home advantage, getting acquainted to the conditions without ample match practice is never easy. However, if they do manage to be at their best in the upcoming contest, Zimbabwe will have their work cut out.
George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer, Ollie Hairs, Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Matthew Cross, Michael Leask, Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt, Chris Sole, Alasdair Evans.
Zimbabwe will be a generation short in the upcoming match as their most experienced player in Brendan Taylor will not be available to play the next match. It will be interesting to see how they deal in filling the void left after his retirement, but it would certainly not be easy.
What works for Zimbabwe is that they will be well-acquainted with the conditions as they are coming off a long tour of Ireland where the conditions are pretty much the same as Scotland. Also, they did a decent job in the T20I series, which they lost, but did put up a good fight.
On paper, Zimbabwe have a decent side with the likes of Blessing Muzarabani, Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burn, and Craig Ervine available. They would need those stalwarts to come good against the hosts and if that happens, Zimbabwe will be a pretty tough team to deal with.
Wesley Madhevere, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Regis Chakabva, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Tendai Chatara, Wellington Masakadza, Richard Ngarava, Luke Jongwe.
While the series may not hold as much importance as the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup does, this is going to play a massive role in determining the future of these two sides. Scotland will want to get some match practice before the marquee event whereas Zimbabwe would like to show what the global cricket is missing. Comparing the recent performances and on-paper lineups of the two sides, Zimbabwe seem slightly ahead and are, therefore, our pick as favorites to win the upcoming contest.
