NAM vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Pitch Report & Injury Updates for 1st T20I

On October 24, at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek, Namibia will take on Zimbabwe in the 1st T20I of the Zimbabwe tour of Namibia. In their last five games, Namibia boasts a good track record with three wins, while Zimbabwe has shown decent form with two victories in the same period.

In Namibia’s recent clash against the United Arab Emirates, UAE won the toss and chose to bat. They started slowly, scoring just 39 runs in eight overs. However, they picked up the pace, with Muhammad Waseem and Chundangapoyil Rizwan leading the attack, helping them finish with a total of 148 runs. Namibia’s chase didn’t start well; they struggled to score runs and lost wickets. By the end of the innings, they managed only 141 runs and lost the match by seven runs.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, faced Ireland in their last match. Zimbabwe won the toss and opted to field. Ireland got off to a shaky start, losing three wickets for just 19 runs in four overs. However, their middle order stabilized the innings, taking them to a competitive total of 141 runs. Zimbabwe’s innings didn’t begin well either, but they maintained a steady run rate. Ryan Burl played an explosive knock down the order, guiding them to a four-wicket victory.
