They will expect runs down the order from Clive Madande and Ryan Burl.

The skies over Harare will be clear on June 24. The wicket has been good to bat on as 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 be happy with a score of 300 runs and above.
Harare Sports Club is known for getting slower as the game progresses. The large outfield also creates lesser boundary-scoring opportunities for the side, but there are always runs for players who stay at the wicket. There is early assistance for the fast bowlers, but the spinners have done well on this surface in the past.
The wicket has been great to bat on, and we have already seen a big score here. The side batting first has an advantage as they can set the score and use the slowness in the surface with the ball in the latter half. The side winning the toss here would like to take advantage of the conditions and bat first.
Zimbabwe's batsmen have carried the side on their shoulders in the two games. Their bowling form is a concern, and the side will have to bowl well against the West Indies' strong batting line-up. West Indies have done well in both games, and they have an excellent record against Zimbabwe, giving them an edge.
