Australia will clash against Zimbabwe in the 2nd ODI of the series on Wednesday. Kookaburras made a blazing start to this series with a convincing win in the 1st ODI by 5 wickets. Cameron Green’s five fer, responsible batting from David Warner and Steve Smith, and later a cameo from Glenn Maxwell provided them an early lead to the series. They went with a strong all-round side by dropping their ace batter Marnus Labuschagne, with Mitchell Marsh ruled out of the reminder of the series the former will likely to return to the playing eleven. They will be aiming to wrap up the series with a game left.
Zimbabwe on the other hand weren’t up to the task in the 1st ODI as they failed to match the standards of the mighty Australians and lost the game by 5 wickets. Wesley Madhevere has been included in the eleven lately and he made the most of the opportunity by scoring a well-made 72 runs. Sean Williams who missed out the 1st ODI with a problem with his elbow likely to be available for the 2nd ODI. They were ordinary on the field as they conceded runs through miss fields and even dropped catches as well. They must analyze what went wrong and come back stronger to stay alive in the series.
