ZIM vs NED Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022
Zimbabwe and Netherlands go head to head in Match 34 of the 2022 T20 World Cup on Wednesday afternoon at the Adelaide Oval. Zimbabwe have three points from three games in Group 2 and are in fourth place. Netherlands have lost all three fixtures in the second round and have already been eliminated. Read on as we preview this match. This Super 12 stage game gets underway at 14:30 local time.
Zimbabwe experienced the high of the last ball victory against Pakistan but then were unable to beat Bangladesh from the final ball. They should have more than enough quality across the side to beat Netherlands.
Netherlands have not won any of their matches since the third game of the first round of this competition. They have found the stronger nations too talented in the conditions in Australia.

Who will win Zimbabwe vs Netherlands T20 Match?
Although Netherlands have a larger pool of batters to choose from, Zimbabwe’s bowling attack is the stronger of the two sides. The bowling could be key in the outcome of this match.
ZIM vs NED Top Team Batsmen
Craig Ervine, Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza are our batting choices for Zimbabwe. The bookmakers are backing skipper Craig Ervine to finish the game as Zimbabwe’s highest run scorer. Raza has a top score of 87 in this format.
We recommend Colin Ackermann, Stephan Myburgh and Max O’Dowd with the bat for Netherlands. All three batters are joint favourites to top score for Netherlands. Ackermann has top scored for his side in two of the last three games.
ZIM vs NED Top Team Bowlers
We are backing Blessing Muzarabani, Sikandar Raza and Sean Williams with the ball for Zimbabwe. Muzarabani has enjoyed the pitches in Australia and is joint favourite with the bookies to be Zimbabwe’s top wicket taker in this game. Williams’ best figures in this format are 3-15.
Fred Klaassen, Tim Pringle and Paul van Meekeran are our bowling tips for Netherlands. Klaassen has played plenty of top level white ball games over recent months and is expected to be the top bowler for Netherlands. Pringle is a left-arm spinner who turns the ball a huge amount.
Zimbabwe vs Netherlands Prediction
Although neither team were expected to finish in the top two places of Group 2, Zimbabwe still have a good chance of qualifying for the semi-final. Netherlands have put up good performances but have not been able to keep pace with the stronger teams and we are backing Zimbabwe to win this match.
