Harare Sports Club Pitch Report For IND vs ZIM 3rd T20I

Harare Sports Club, Harare [X]Harare Sports Club, Harare [X]

On Wednesday, India will cross swords against Zimbabwe in the third T20I of the ongoing five-match series. After losing the first T20I by 13 runs, team India bounced back remarkably, swatting aside the hosts by a whopping 100-run margin. 

So, with the series levelled at one-all, both teams would be desperate for a win to gain an upper hand over their counterparts. 

So, as the stage gets set for another high-octane face-off, let's see how the surface at Harare Sports Club will behave throughout the contest. 

Harare Sports Club Pitch Report

The surface at Harare Sports Club generally favours the batters in afternoon matches. But, interestingly, it was a bit sticky in the series opener as batters from both sides struggled to get going. 

However, as the curator didn't water it, the track dried up and behaved like a batting beauty in the second T20I. Despite playing on a used pitch, India hammered 234 runs on the board, riding on Abhishek Sharma's scintillating century

So, coming to the third T20I, if a dry pitch is dished out, expect it to favour the batters. Also, the spinners will get a hint of turn, while the fast bowlers will likely hit the indentations and hard length to succeed. 

On the other hand, if the pitch is well watered, expect it to heavily favour the bowlers and make it tough for the batters to score runs. 

As the chasing sides have lost both matches so far, expect the toss-winner to bat and put runs on the board.
