Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The domestic One-Day tournament in Zimbabwe is currently in progress and the match 7 will see Mashonaland Eagles and Rangers locking horns at the Old Hararians in Harare. This is a crucial game for both sides. The Eagles have so far played three matches and have won only a solitary game and are at the third position in the points table among five teams.
The Rangers, on the other hand, are struggling, even more, having lost both their matches so far. Their batsmen have not scored much to give their bowlers a chance and have got bowled out for 148 and 169 in the two matches. Even the Eagles haven’t done well with the bat. But they chased down 142 inside 18 overs in the previous game against Mid-West Rhinos and will be confident coming into this crucial game.
The forecast for this match is not promising and the rain is most likely to play spoilsport. Thunderstorms are predicted at 11 AM and 4 PM local time while the chances of rain hover around 40% throughout the day. The temperature will stay in the early 20s during the match according to AccuWeather.
This is the first match at the venue in the tournament this season. There is no idea how the pitch will behave. But there could be a lot for the bowlers in it with the conditions in favour of them. It has been a low-scoring competition so far with only Mountaineers going past 200-run mark (289 & 234) in six matches so far. All the matches have been affected by rain thus far.
Average first innings score: N/A
