Zimbabwe vs UAE – 4th ODI Fantasy Preview

Four games were scheduled between Zimbabwe and UAE at Harare Sports Club and so far, it has been one way traffic as Zimbabwe have taken a 3-0 lead and they have honestly always looked in control, right from batting to bowling and every other aspect of the game. Now, UAE have nothing but pride to salvage as we move into the 4th and final ODI.

Be careful while selecting your teams for this game as it is a dead rubber and while Zimbabwe will want to complete the 4-0 whitewash, we’re expecting multiple changes in both teams to test their bench strength and give everyone a chance in the middle. UAE will need to come out with a better batting performance if they cant to compete today. Keep reading for our entire PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the 4th ODI…

  • UAE now have 2 wins in their 5 ODIs at this ground.
  • 350/6 is the highest score here – Australia, Aug 2014.
  • Sean Williams and Craig Ervine have 131 and 128 runs in this series.
  • Head to head, Zimbabwe leads UAE in ODIs, 4-1.
  • Average 1st innings score here – 229.


Peter Moor is the captain so this is one player you know will be on the starting line up. He has also had a couple of good scores in the middle overs so he automatically becomes my wicket-keeper choice. Also pick Solomon Mire as your captain, since he looked good in the last game with his innings of 40. If he tees off, a century is certainly on the cards.

Sikandar Raza is easily the most talented cricketer on the Zimbabwe team sheet but he hasn’t been getting too many chances down the order while top order wickets coming early means he hasn’t had the chance to get many with the ball either. Pick him in your team but as a normal player. Also, I’d like to see Chris Mpofu get a game. If he doesn’t, pick both of Donald Tiripano and Kyle Jarvis, who have 6 and 8 wickets respectively this series.


Not many players from the UAE camp have done well, but there have been a few sparks of good cricket. Shaiman Anwar happens to be the most experienced player in the squad and his fifty in the 2nd ODI means he makes my team today. Captain Mohammad Naveed is another player I will be picking for this contest.

Former captain Rohan Mustafa has had three continuous failures in this series after making a comeback to the national side. He has scored 10, 0 and 9 in 3 ODIs so far, but he is a super talent and has also picked 4 wickets so far. I’ll pick him and you could even consider making him your vice-captain. Ghulam Shabber is one more player who has been impressive this series so far.
