Zimbabwe have been outstanding in this ICC World Cup Qualifier, so much so they can taste a return to the showpiece ODI tournament. They not only have been ruthless in the games in they were expected to win, but they showed great fight in their superb – and crucial – victory over West Indies.

However, this is where things heat up. Any slip up against Oman and the likes of Netherlands, Scotland and dare we say West Indies will be ready to pounce. Victory against Oman will put the Zimbabweans in a terrific position, and they will be expected to do so in front of what will be another raucous crowd, this time in Bulawayo.

So, will this expectation spur on or burden Zimbabwe? Remember, Oman pulled off an incredible victory over Ireland earlier this tournament, so the belief will be there that they can trouble the hosts. In terms of their qualification hopes, they will need a miracle, but all they can focus on for the moment is producing strong cricket for as long as possible.

ZIM vs OMN Dream11 Prediction: Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Zimbabwe:

  • Sean Williams is striking at 152.94 in this tournament, and is coming off a brutal 174 off 101 balls against USA. His 390 runs in total include two hundreds and a fifty.
  • Sikandar Raza is also on fire. His 218 runs this tournament have come at a strike rate of 156.83, with his century coming when chasing.
  • Raza has also taken eight wickets in four matches in the 2023 ODI WC Qualifier. With conditions at Bulawayo starting to suit spin, expect Raza to also play a key role with the ball.
  • Craig Ervine has also looked in strong touch. The skipper has picked up a century and half-century in three innings, totalling 218 runs.
  • If Zimbabwe bat first, watch out for Ryan Burl. He has struck 116 runs at a strike rate of 136.5 when batting first in this tournament.
  • Richard Ngarava continues to go from strength to strength. The left-armer is Zimbabwe’s leading wicket-taker with 10 and is conceding just 4.15 per over.
  • Blessing Muzarabani will be a threat with his height. However, he will be seeking to improve his record at Bulawayo, where he averages 43.71 in seven matches.

Oman:

  • Aqib Ilyas is Oman’s leading run-getter in the 2023 ODI WC Qualifier (142). He is averaging 35.50 with a strike rate of 81.60.
  • Ayaan Khan will be asked to provide impetus to the Oman innings. He is striking at 92.36 (133 runs, avg. 33.25).
  • Skipper Zeeshan Maqsood is key to Oman’s hopes. He was man of the match in their famous win over Ireland, where he scored 59 (67) and took 1/51.
  • Mohammad Nadeem has finished not out in two of the four matches. He has struck 111 runs at an average of 55.50.
  • Bilal Khan will look to take advantage of any Zimbabwean nerves up front. He has taken nine wickets in four matches this tournament – the most of any Oman bowler.
