AUS vs ZIM Dream11 Team Prediction, Probable XI: 3rd T20I Preview

Welcome to our preview of the 3rd match of the T20 tri-series between Australia and Zimbabwe. We are covering 3rd T20I of AUS vs ZIM Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable XI for the match.

Australia cruised to victory against Pakistan in the second match of the tri-series to get back into the winning ways. They were outstanding with the ball and explosive with the bat.

Billy Stanlake speared through Pakistan’s top order to achieve his career-best figures of 4-0-8-4. Others bowlers also came together to stop Pakistan for just 116. After that, while chasing skipper Aaron Finch never let the opponents get on top and scored 68 runs in just 33 balls.

Tough times do not seem to be ending soon for Zimbabwe. After missing the services of their five key veterans Sikandar Raza, Brendon Taylor, Graeme Creamer, Craig Ervine and Sean Williams now they will not be having the likes of their prime fast bowler Kyle Jarvis, who injured himself during the first match.

In the previous match, Zimbabwe was outperformed in every department by Pakistan. The only positives were Tendai Chisoro’s effective bowling and Tarisai Musakanda’s positive intent while batting.

Team News:


  • Australia decided to go with an extra batsman in Nic Maddinson and with a promising win in their first match. It is unlikely that they will change their winning combination.


  • Zimbabwe received a major blow as fast bowler Kyle Jarvis injured himself while fielding in the first match against Pakistan. Reportedly he has broken his thumb so Zimbabwe Cricket called Donald Tiripano as a replacement of K Jarvis.
  • Chris Mpofu can get straight entry into playing XI, in place of Kyle Jarvis.
  • Off break bowler John Nyumbu has a sub-par T20I debut so there can be chances for all-rounder Malcolm Waller or left arm orthodox bowler Wellington Masakadza to replace him in the XI.
  • Ryal Burl’s position will be doubtful also.

Probable Playing XI:

Aaron Finch (c), D’Arcy Short, Travis Head, Nic Maddinson, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Jhye Richardson, Billy Stanlake
