Zimbabwe will look to continue its dominance in the 1st Super Six game of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 as they take on Oman. Zimbabwe won all its matches, and their batsmen are in excellent form. Oman comes here with a loss against Scotland, and they must win this game to stay in the race for a World Cup berth, as they haven't carried any points from the group stage.
Oman comes here with two consecutive losses. They are at the bottom of the points table, and loss here will seal their fate, putting the side under pressure. Zimbabwe has had an excellent run and has its three most experienced batsmen in great form. It will take a lot of heart for Oman to defeat them.
Craig Ervine's side has been the biggest newsmaker in this tournament. They won all four games at the league stage and came here with a massive 304-run win against the United States. They will look to continue with the same momentum and extend their lead on the points table with a win. They play at home, and Ervine would like his players to use the conditions to their advantage.
The side will look for a strong start from Craig Ervine and Joylord Gumbie, who have scored runs. Sean Williams scored 174 runs in the last game, and he will look to continue with the same form and build partnerships with Wesley Madhevere and Sizandar Raza in the middle order. The side bats deep, and they will expect runs from Luke Jongwe and Ryan Burl.
The bowlers did a fantastic job in the last game, and they will look for good spells from Tendai Chatara and Richard Ngarava with the new ball. Blessing Muzarabani and Wellington Masakadza have a lot of experience, and the team will need a good show. They have variety in the attack and shall expect tight lines from Raza, Ryan Burl, Williams, and Madhevere in the supporting role.

Zeeshan Maqsood's side lost to Scotland by 76 runs in the last game. Poor efforts with the bat and the ball cost them the last game. They are up against a side in tremendous form playing in its backyard. Maqsood would like to see a spirited effort from his players in this game to keep their hopes alive for the rest of the tournament.
Kashyap Prajapati and Jatinder Singh are key side players and have to bat well at the top. The middle order failed in the last game, and the team will need a good show from Aqib Ilyas, Maqsood, and Mohammad Nadeem. Ayaan Khan, Shoaib Khan, and Naseem Khushi must add quick runs down the order.
Their bowlers must be on their toes, as Zimbabwe has been in excellent form with the bat. Bilal Khan and Fayyaz Butt must strike early to put the side in a comfortable position in this game. Maqsood has bowled well and needs to keep the run rate under check in the middle overs with Mohammad Nadeem. Ayaan Khan, Jay Odedra, and Aqib Ilyas have to fill the fifth bowler role.

The skies over Harare will be clear on June 29. The wicket has been a belter, and the ball has come onto the bat nicely. Spinners have troubled the batsmen using the slowness of the surface. The side that bats first in this game would need more than 320 runs to feel safe on this wicket.
Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo, is a batsman's paradise. They can play their strokes freely, and we have seen high-scoring games. There is no assistance for the fast bowlers on this track, but the spinners have done well on this surface as they can turn the ball sharply, and it stops on the batsmen occasionally.
The last five games at this venue have seen sides win by big margins, batting first. The wicket has been great to bat on at the start, and it slows a bit in the second half of the game. The side winning the toss here would like to take advantage of the conditions and bat first.
Oman faces the heat in this game. A loss here can end all their hopes of making it to the World Cup. Their batsmen have fared poorly in the last two games and must do well here. Zimbabwe is riding excellent form, and their top order has destroyed bowling attacks in this tournament. Playing at home, they start favorites.
