Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Pakistan Under-19s will face the Zimbabwe Under-19s in the match 14 of the ongoing World Cup in South Africa. The Group C encounter will definitely be battle between the Pakistan pacers who thrashed Scotland in the previous game bundling them out for just 75 runs and Zimbabwe batsmen who will have to find a way to survive. Pakistan, with a win in this game, will also look to seal their place in the knockouts.
Zimbabwe, on the other hand, lost to Bangladesh colts in their opening game of the tournament which was a rain-affected game. Defending 130 in 22 overs, the Tigers gunned down the total in just 11.2 overs itself and Zimbabwe will have to improve their game considerably to put up a fight against the Boys in green.
There is no chance of rain on Wednesday in Potchefstroom as the forecast is absolutely clear. The sun will be out when the match is scheduled to get underway and the temperature is expected to hover around in the early 30s according to AccuWeather.
Bangladesh colts bundled out the Scotland Under-19 for just 89 on Tuesday. The behaviour of the pitch can’t be predicted unless two equal teams play. It remains to be seen if the Pakistan pacers will once again be able to wreak havoc in the opposition camp. The teams are expected to bat first though after winning the toss.
