Harare Sports Club Pitch Report

It is a good sporting surface with some help for the pacers in it. The surface has pace and bounce but the pacers are also getting the seam movement off the surface. However, the batters could score runs here if they technically apply themselves. Expect another good fight between the bat and the ball on this surface.

Zimbabwe (166/10 in 42.5 overs) lost to Ireland (170/6 in 40.1 overs) by 4 wickets – 15 December 2023
