Less than 24 hours after being on the receiving end of a Paras Khadka special, Singapore have to dust themselves off and go again. Their preparations for the World T20 Qualifier didn’t start too well, suffering a heavy defeat against Nepal, the side they beat comfortably back in July to reach the World T20 Qualifier.

Indeed, they will be out for an improved showing against Zimbabwe. Quite unconvincing at times against Nepal, the Zimbabweans got home in the end thanks to Richmond Mutumbami and Ryan Burl’s reguard action. Their tendency to lose quick wickets was on show, and like Singapore, will be out for a better showing.

Key to a Singapore win

Singapore didn’t quite capitalise on their strong start in the powerplay vs Nepal. A string of dot balls in the overs following the powerplay hurt their momentum, perhaps falling short (151) of what they could have reached (170+). The form of skipper Timothy David is a plus, and if he can get more proactive support from his top order partners, Singapore are capable of putting pressure on Zimbabwe.

Also, it was a nightmare night in the field vs Nepal. The lack of variations and yorkers was a disappointing aspect of Singapore’s bowling, often bowling in the slot with such short straight boundaries at the Indian Association Ground. With Zimbabwe’s top order failing badly in their opener against Nepal, Singapore have the opportunity to bounce back and remind Zimbabwe of their shortcomings. Can Janak Prakash have another solid outing, and more importantly, who will support him?

Key to a Zimbabwe win

Zimbabwe won their opening game, but they were far from convincing. Three ducks in their top four doesn’t often translate to victories, but their steady bowling display and middle order under pressure saw them home. To improve as a T20 team, the Zimbabweans need greater consistency across stages of the innings, beginning with the top order, of whom plenty rests on in this clash.

Their victory against Nepal stemmed from their steady bowling display. To restrict any side to 132 on a decent batting track and small boundaries is a fair effort. The bowlers again will play a key part in the quest for victory, and one feels that the wicket of Timothy David will be crucial given how the remainder of Singapore’s top order struggled a little for fluency against Nepal.
