South Africa v Zimbabwe prediction
Due to the absence of Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock, South Africa have been left with a very inexperienced batting line-up. On the other hand, Zimbabwe got a big boost in their batting department with the return of Brendon Taylor, Craig Erwin and Shawn Williams. However, being played internationally for a while can be three small to wild. Protees has a home advantage in their favor. He has an excellent ODI record in this place, with six wins in eight matches. South Africa have defeated Zimbabwe in their last 27 ODI meetings, and even though some of their big names are missing, they are far better in all aspects of the game. In this way we predict a comfortable victory for the domestic team in this first one-day international match.
