Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe
With Zimbabwe winning the first game in style, we expect the rest of the series to be more interesting.

In reply, Namibia was restricted to 146 for 5 in 20 overs, courtesy of Zimbabwean quicks, who were spot on throughout the game. Going in the second game of the five-match series, we can expect Zimbabwe to produce more match-winning performances.Get Your Registration Bonus!

Namibia- Looking to Bounce Back and Dent the Hosts
Namibia had much to take from the first game’s defeat. Bernard Schiltz was simply unplayable in the bowling, managing to pick 2 for 19 from his 4 overs. Pikky Ya France and Gerhard Erasmus also played an ideal supportive role. Namibia was doing great while chasing; however, they got off track when they failed to rotate strike during the middle overs. Divan IA Cock was the top scorer, scoring 66 runs off 43 deliveries.
