Top Picks for AUS vs ZIM Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
David Warner has participated in 5 One Day Internationals for Australia this year, scoring 155 runs at an average of 31 and an 83.33 strike rate. These five contests were all in June against Sri Lanka. Warner fell short of a well-deserved century in the fourth game of the five-match series, scoring 99 runs off 112 deliveries.
For Australia, Steven Smith hasn’t appeared in many ODI games in the past 12 months. He has only participated in two games this year; his previous ODI appearance occurred in 2020. In 130 ODI games, Smith has scored over 4400 runs. This series will be crucial for the right-handed batter as he gets ready for both the World Cup and the forthcoming series.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Sikandar Raza played on the team that defeated Australia in the most recent ODI and will be able to impart many valuable insights to his colleagues. The all-around player has recently been in outstanding form for Zimbabwe. He has scored 615 runs in 12 ODIs this year at an average of 61.50 and a strike rate of 93.18. Also he had three centuries throughout his lengthy career, which began in 2013, up until the beginning of this year. He has three century to his credit so far this year, and he plans to add a couple more in this series.
Marcus Stoinis will play his 50th ODI in this match, and he intends to make a statement with both his bowling and batting. The 33-year-old all-rounder has taken 34 wickets and scored 612 runs at an average of 27.81.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Mitchell Starc will play his first ODI since July of last year after being selected for the starting lineup. It will be his 100th ODI game, so he’ll be fired up to make a strong comeback. Starc has taken 195 wickets at an average of 22.45 in 99 ODI games.
Blessing Muzarabani is now back in the lineup for this series after missing the limited-overs series against Bangladesh and India. In 33 ODIs, he has taken 46 wickets at an average of 29.91, a strike rate of 34.8, and an economy of 5.14.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
The Zimbabwe team’s captain, Regis Chakabva, has recently been doing well. In a match against Bangladesh this month, he recorded his first ODI century. The wicketkeeper-batter has 1110 runs at an average of 21.34 in 58 ODIs.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for AUS vs ZIM Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Regis Chakabva, Alex Carey, David Warner (C), Steven Smith, Ryan Burl, Innocent Kaia, Sikandar Raza (VC), Cameron Green, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Blessing Muzarabani.
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for AUS vs ZIM Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Regis Chakabva, David Warner, Steven Smith (C), Aaron Finch, Ryan Burl, Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis (VC), Sikandar Raza, Josh Hazlewood, Luke Jongwe, Blessing Muzarabani.
AUS vs ZIM Risky Captaincy Choice:
Australia is eager to give Cameron Green opportunities in different formats because of his outstanding performance for Australia in Test matches. The all-rounder has participated in 7 ODIs so far and has 153 runs scored.
During his 31 ODI appearances, Ryan Burl scored 494 runs at an average of 22.45 and a strike rate of 71.69. Burl has only scored over 20 runs in an inning in three of the ten games he has played this year.
Player you should avoid:
Due to their desire to field a team with a large number of all-round players, Australia did not select Marnus Labuschagne for the starting lineup for this game. As a result, you can refrain from choosing your team’s batter for this game.
