ZIM vs NED Dream11 Prediction:
- Sikandar Raza has scored more than 240 runs in his last 10 games for Zimbabwe and he will be confident in delivering a strong performance for the home side. On the other hand, Brad Evans has been the star bowler for the African team as he has taken 11 wickets in the last 10 games.
- Scott Edwards has registered 404 runs in the last 10 games against his name for Netherland, batting at an average of 50.5 runs per inning. Whereas, Bas de Leede has been the country’s most efficient bowler, taking 8 wickets in the last 10 games, bowling at an economy rate of 6.60 runs per over.
- Given the experience Sikandar Raza has accumulated by featuring the different leagues all over the world, we expect him to display his caliber by scoring over 40 runs in the 1st ODI.

Weather & Pitch Report:
The weather prediction indicates how there will be clouds surrounding all over. However, there is a possibility it might not rain during the match hours with the temperature being around 16 to 18 degrees.
Top-order batsmen on this pitch need to keep their composure in order to be able to get a good start. There is going to be ball movement, both ways, as the unexpected bounce allows this venue to not be a high-scoring ground.
Since the overcast conditions during the match hours are going to make the wicket in Harare even slower, both captains will be looking to bowl first as chasing could be an easier task at hand.

ZIM Team News:
The loss of early wickets has been a perennial problem for Zimbabwe over the last few years. Citing this, the team will be expecting the likes of Wesley Madhevere and Innocent Kala to provide a slow yet solid start.
NED Team News:
Given how the bowling attack has struggled to take wickets, Netherland will be relying on Fred Klaassen and Vivian Kingma to led their attack with the new ball.

It is safe to say that the home team does look to be the superior side on paper with the likes of Wesley Madhevere, Innocent Kaia, Ryan Burl, Sikandar Raza, Clive Madande, Wellington Masakadza, and Brad Evans all known to be in fine form. However, the Netherlands cannot make any slip-ups if they are to beat the home team to take the initiative in this series. That being said, we predict Zimbabwe to inch past Netherlands in a close contest in Harare.
Zimbabwe are favorites to beat Netherlands
ZIM Key Players:
This 36-year-old all-rounder cannot only score crucial runs to stabilize the batting innings but his off-break bowling can also help Zimbabwe clinch wickets in the middle overs.
Ryan Burl –
The middle-order batsman is one of the most crucial batsmen from the nation’s batting lineup to keep an eye on. He has scored 181 runs in the previous 9 games, batting at an average of 25.8. Moreover, he has also taken 9 wickets in the same number of games.
Brad Evans –
The most lethal bowler in the country at the moment, and the home side will be banking of Evans to take early wickets in the first ODI.
NED Key Players:
Scott Edwards –
The wicketkeeper-batsman of the Netherlands has been in exquisite form, perhaps their best batsman as he has scored over 400 runs in the last 10 games.
Vikramjit Singh –
The opening-order Indian decent batsman for the Netherlands has scored 317 runs in the last 10 games, batting at an average of 31.7 runs per inning.
Vivian Kingma –
Given just how the pitch at Harare can be unpredictable, this right-arm medium-fast can get wickets courtesy of his ball movement.
ZIM vs NED Team Form:
ZIM Team Form –
Zimbabwe enter this ODI series after winning two of their last 4 ODI contests.
NED Team Form –
