Singapore team is one of the strongest teams for both bowling as well as a batting side. Before, the Singapore team played in the CWC Challenge League Group A and that league the Singapore team played well. In the Singapore team, Chetan Suryawanshi is the captain of this team and he is an all-rounder. In this series, totally three teams will be playing that is Singapore, Nepal, and Zimbabwe. In this league, the Singapore team will be starting the first match against the Nepal team. Singapore team will continue to keep playing well this league. It is the Singapore T20 Tri-Series 2019 League.
Chatara and Madziva are the fast bowlers. Chari was looking promising, having scored 19, but he perished to a run-out. Burl and Mutumbami may get a promotion after how they batted last time. Chakabva, Mutombodzi and skipper Williams got ducks in the last game and will wish to make amends. In bowling, Masakadza, Williams, Burl and Mutombodzi hold the key, being the spinners.
The track is expected to help the spinners to a large extent. The batters need to choose their strokes wisely while facing the tweakers. The temperature will be around 28 degrees Celsius with the humidity in the 80s. Hence, the sides should opt to field first after winning the toss. There are forecasts of rain and thunderstorm. The pacers may not pose that much of a threat.
The 1st T20 match of Singapore T20 Tri will be played at Indian Association Ground, Singapore. The pitch is going to be a bit of an unknown for the first match but we had seen some high scoring matches played here in the past.
That was a comprehensive seven-wicket victory in the last game powered by a stroke-field 71 from Skipper Hamilton Masakadza, who has now retired from international cricket and hence will not be available for this series. Zimbabwe are coming fresh off the Bangladesh T20I tri-series where they lost three out of their four games and could win only one against Afghanistan.
The side remained unbeaten, winning three matches at a Net Run Rate way above the other teams. The Amjad Mahboob-led unit recently qualified for the T20 World Cup qualifiers after topping the table in the ICC Mens T20 World Cup Asia Region Final. Their next match is against the hosts at the Indian Association Ground. Beating Singapore isnt expected to be a cakewalk by any means.
In this team, Sean Williams is the captain of this team. On the other hand, the Zimbabwe team will be playing in thenext match against the Singapore team in the Singapore T20 Tri-Series. In Zimbabwe team played the firstmatch against the Nepal team and the second match will be playing against theSingapore team. Before,the Zimbabwe team played in the Bangladesh Twenty 20 Tri-Series and that seriesthe Zimbabwe team gave only poor performance. Letswait and watch the match who will be won this match and this match are veryinteresting for these two teams.
After ending Afghanistans 12-match winning streak in Bangladesh, the African side has carried forward its form even in the Singapore tri-nation series. Zimbabwe have won back-to-back T20Is in resounding manner. They didnt have the services of Hamilton Masakadza, who retired a week ago. It was Sean Williams, who led Zimbabwe and took them to a dominating five-wicket victory over Nepal.
The 39-run loss to hosts Bangladesh at Chattogram the other day was their third consecutive defeat in T20 internationals. Last year Bangladesh Tri-Series 2019, Zimbabwe is struggling big time in the shortest format of the game having secured only one win in their last 17 matches. The Hamilton Masakadza-led sides are yet to win a game in the ongoing tri-series. They find themselves at the bottom of the points table after losing their first three matches and now cannot possibly make it to the final even if they win this match.
Apart from Sompal, the visitors will look to Sandeep Lamichhane and KC Karan to deliver the goods with the ball. The all-rounder has 17 T20I wickets to his name and has the potential to make sizeable contributions with the bat as well. Sompal Kami is another key man in this line-up. Lamichhane could open the bowling and the leg-spinner will be expected to apply pressure on the Malaysian batsmen with a few tight overs. So far the last decade Match, the top three - Pawan Sarraf, Paras Khadka and Gyanendra Malla - hold the key to Nepal's batting. Paras Khadka is the team's leading run-getter in T20Is with 290 runs and the onus will be on the skipper to set the tone of the innings.
We have no doubt that Zimbabwe is going to full of confidence going into this match against Nepal. Zimbabwe had recently played T20 series in Bangladesh where they could manage to win only a single match. Zimbabwe should be the clear favorite considering the experience that its players have. That win came against a very strong Afghanistan side and ended a record-breaking winning streak for Afghanistan.
