The eighth match of the ICC T20 Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will witness a clash between West Indies and Zimbabwe. While Zimbabwe will be coming off a victory from their previous match against Ireland, the two-time champions West Indies suffered a disappointing loss against Scotland and now need to win the remaining two fixtures in order to keep their hopes alive.
In their first game, West Indies lost to Scotland and failed during the chase. Scotland had put up a target of 161 runs, but the Caribbean side was dished out for just 118 runs. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, upset Ireland in their campaign opener. They are in good touch and are unlikely to make any changes to their combination but West Indies might as well do.

ZIM vs NAM Pitch Report
Bellerive Oval in Hobart boasts a great batting-friendly pitch. But the old ball has also proven to be helpful for the spinners. Having said that, the captain winning the toss might look to bowl first and later chase the target.

ZIM vs NAM Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter
One of the finest cricketers that the Zimbabwean side has had in the modern era, Sikandar Raza looks very much dedicated to taking his side over the finish line. He has been in great touch in white-ball cricket recently, and will be the pick of the batters.
Probable best bowler
The right-arm medium-fast bowler was on fire in the previous game against Ireland, as he bagged three wickets while giving away a decent 23 runs during his spell. His impressive performances in the recent past got him a world cup spot, and he will try and prove his position in the team, yet again.
