Australia vs Zimbabwe – Performance in the Past Matches
Australia has won the 1st two ODI matches and sealed the 3-match ODI series against Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe has failed to show their true potential and lost both ODIs by big margins. Australia bundled out Zimbabwe for 96 runs in the second ODI and chased down the target in 15 overs. Adam Zampa and Cameron Green were their best bowlers. Mitchell Stare also displayed magic in the last game. Zimbabwe’s major concern in the series was their batting. Tadiwanashe Marumani, Wesley Madhavere, and Sikandar Raza all failed to score runs in the match. But Ryan Burl and Richard Ngarava have been impressive in the game. Australia will be looking for a complete whitewash in the 3rd ODI match.
