The Zimbabwe team’s rise has taken the cricketing world by storm and brought new joy to pundits and followers of the game. The team stands a great chance of making the top 2 in their group, in what will be nothing less of a dream for a team that could not find sponsors for their kits last year. They are up against a Netherlands team that should be immensely proud to be competing at this level and will hope to leave the shores of Australia with a win, along with the sheer magnitude of the experience of a world cup. Let us now dive into the ZIM vs NED Predictions for the game.

ZIM vs NED, Stadium Name Pitch Report & Weather Conditions
The iconic Adelaide Oval is famous for its flat track with pace and bounce, a ground that most batters find run scoring easier compared to other grounds, but the long straight boundaries will certainly bring in the spinners to play. Australia registered their highest T20I at home on this venue against Sri Lanka in 2019, and the average first-innings score here is around 180. It promises to be run fest if the batters can get their eye in, settle and then press punch.
The average temperature is expected to be around 15°C with cloudy skies and no forecast of rain. We look all set for a complete game of 40 overs.
Bas de Leede may miss out after getting hit on the helmet by a searing Haris Rauf bouncer in their previous encounter.

Sikandar Raza: Raza has been the shining light in the team, the talisman that has rallied his teammates and produced a special performance with the bat and the ball. His team will once again be relying on him to set the ground on fire, especially after missing out on the crucial game against Bangladesh. With everything on the line, expect the all-rounder to come out all guns blazing.
Max O’Dowd: The Dutch opener has a wonderful technique and attacking mindset, a lethal and essential combination to possess as an opener. His team will be counting on him to get off to a flier on a pitch that is great for batting and will be rearing to perform big in their last exhibition here in the land Down Under.
