AUS vs ZIM Betting Tips

  • David Warner averages 44.88 in this format and the left-handed opener is our tip for Australia’’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Mitchell Starc has 195 ODI wickets from 99 appearances and the left-arm pace bowler is our pick for Australia's top wicket taker against Zimbabwe.
  • Sikandar Raza was in excellent batting form during the recent ODI series against Bangladesh and he is our tip for Zimbabwe’s highest run scorer in this game. Luke Jongwe took three wickets from his last two games against India and he is a strong choice for Zimbabwe’s top wicket taker against Australia.
  • We recommend backing Australia skipper, Aaron Finch to score over 42.5 runs in this competition.

AUS vs ZIM 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Zimbabwe and Australia begin their three match ODI series on Sunday morning at the Riverway Stadium, Townsville. This is the first time the sides have played each other in this format since 2014 when Zimbabwe won by three wickets in Harare. The hosts lost their last ODI series 3-0 to India earlier this month. Australia lost 3-2 to Sri Lanka in June. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 09:40 local time.

Australia may have recently lost an ODI series in Sri Lanka but they will enjoy going up against Zimbabwe in this series and will be firm favourites to win.

Zimbabwe beat Australia in an ODI the last time they met but this will be a very tough game for the team to make it two  ODI wins in a row.

AUS vs ZIM Match Toss Prediction

Although the conditions will not necessarily alter a huge amount during the match, we expect both skippers to want to field first ahead of this game.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

After losing to Sri Lanka in their most recent ODI series, we expect Australia’s full-strength ODI side to make light work of Zimbabwe in this match. Of the players selected for this trip, none are unavailable or injured for this opening match on Friday.

AUS Key Players

  • David Warner- the left-handed opener is enjoying a new lease of life in white-ball cricket. He is the player the opposition fans love to hate.
  • Steve Smith- the former Australian captain has seen his level of performance tail off slightly from the highs of 2019. However, he is still an asset in any format and hit a Test 145 not out in his last match in Galle.
  • Mitchell Starc- the left-arm pace bowler is a fantastic swinger of the ball. He will be relishing his first game in this format since July 2021.

AUS Team Form

Australia came unstuck against Sri Lanka in their recent ODI series and will be keen to not fall to defeat early in the competition.

Zimbabwe Team News & Playing 11

ZIM Team News

Zimbabwe have had a very varied home summer with some wins against Emerging Teams as well as some typical big moments in the other games. There have been no drop-outs or recalls to the side ahead of this game for Zimbabwe.

ZIM Key Players

  • Sikandar Raza- the all-rounder really enjoyed his batting against Bangladesh. He averages 37.38 in this format and 35.96 in Tests.
  • Sean Williams- the all-rounder recently returned to the side. He has scored nine international centuries and few would bet against him bringing up 10 international centuries at some point during this series.
  • Luke Jongwe- the 28 year old right arm fast medium bowler accounted for the wickets of Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan only two ODI appearances ago.

ZIM Team Form

The hosts are hoping to avoid their fifth successive ODI defeat. Prior to this run, they had to pick all virgins up

AUS vs ZIM Top Team Batsmen

Aaron Finch, David Warner and Steve Smith are our batting picks for Australia. All three are very reliable batters for their country and enjoy the ODI format.

We recommend Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams and Wesley Madhevere to be the top batters for Zimbabwe. Madhevere has hit eight half-centuries in international cricket and is still only 21.
