The 4th T20 game in Tanzania tour of Zimbabwe will be played between Mid West Rhinos and Tanzania at the Kwekwe Sports Club.
The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (5:30 PM IST) (12:00 PM GMT).
The Mid West Rhinos took a 2-1 lead in the 6-match T20 series against the visiting Tanzania team following a thumping 6-wicket win on Tuesday. The Tanzania team were limited to 129/8 after electing to bat first. The target was too easy for the Mid West Rhinos who chased it down in only 16.2 overs for the loss of just four wickets. Takudzwanashe Kaitano and Tarisai Musakanda shared a 54-run partnership for the 3rd wicket. This stand was recorded in only 6.4 overs and made the chase even simple. The Rhinos won the first T20 by 16 runs while the visitors Tanzania won the 2nd T20 earlier on Monday by mere 4 runs.
The Kwekwe Sports Club will be under clouds on Wednesday afternoon without causing any interruption to the match.
The Kwekwe Sports Club witnessed the first-innings total around 130 for the 3rd consecutive time in this series. However, the venue seems to have provided a better track for batting on Tuesday than what it was during the first two matches. We can expect totals to be higher during the 4th match though the improvement could be marginal only.

This series does allow the teams to use more than 11 players in a match i.e. Bowling options can be outside of the 11 players who bat in the game. It was evident from the game on Tuesday and searching for the line-ups after the toss is not advised.
The Mid West Rhinos are expected to come out victorious on Wednesday as well.
