After a close second ODI, the third was a resumption of normal service.

Zimbabwe wrapped the series up with a very comfortable 131-run win on Sunday. Led by the ever-present Sean Williams, Zimbabwe’s 307/4 was always going to be too much for a UAE side who might have still be ruing the conditions that got in the way on Friday. In the process, Zimbabwe picked up their first ODI series win at home since 2015, where they beat Ireland 2-1. Can they pick up their first series whitewash since 2009, where they beat Kenya 5-0?

Despite the series being over, there is still plenty for UAE to play for. Their effort in the second ODI has to be cause for optimism, and they surely wouldn’t want to give in as their first ever bilateral ODI series vs a Full Member comes to a close. The early wicket of Regis Chakabva last game was where the joy ended for UAE. Can they push Zimbabwe further in the final match?

Key to a Zimbabwe win

It would have been pleasing for Zimbabwe that their batting clicked into gear. Solomon Mire spent some time at the crease, and so did Craig Ervine. Their 100+ stand set the game up for Zimbabwe, which allowed Sean Williams to come in and dominate. Peter Moor, who has an ODI career SR of 68.22, has been excellent down the order. Zimbabwe could possibly experiment given the series is over, but the template for victory remains the same.

Also, the opening bowlers have been too good for UAE’s top order. Three times this series they have reduced UAE to three down for not many, which has allowed the bowling unit to play off a platform. Kyle Jarvis looks a class above in this series, and if he is picked, Zimbabwe would want more of the same from him in partnership with the other seamers. With the spinners mighty economical, including Ryan Burl’s career-best 4/32, Zimbabwe can build more pressure on UAE.

Key to a UAE win

19/3. 12/3. 15/3.

These have been the three starts UAE have had in this series. To stand a proper chance in the fourth ODI, they have to deal with Zimbabwe’s opening bowlers better so they don’t have to spend the innings rebuilding. There have been periods of encouragement this series, such as the efforts of Shaiman Anwar and Ghulam Shabber in the second ODI, and then CP Rizwan and Muhammad Usman in the third. Can they piece it all together?

Also, UAE need early wickets. Mohammad Naveed bowled pretty well on Sunday, but needs more support from his teammates. They had Zimbabwe at a precarious 162/4 in 32.1 overs last game, before a disappointing performance at the death saw the game slip. Can UAE this time bowl well right throughout the innings?
