    Australia [154/5] beat Zimbabwe [151/9] by five wickets in sixth match of T20I Tri-Series

    Overview

    Harare Sports Club, Harare
    Match 6, T20I tri-series
    Friday, 6 July, 09:00 BST, 10:00 local


    Zimbabwe's bowlers could be forgiven for not relishing another tussle with Australia, given that only a few days ago Aaron Finch took 172 off them, breaking his own record for the highest T20I score and leading Australia to 229/2 and an eventual 100-run victory.

    However, the hosts can take heart from a much-improved performance against Pakistan in the match that followed when they posted 162/4 and were only beaten with five balls to spare.

    Australia also showed some vulnerabilities in their most recent encounter with Pakistan, subsiding to 149/7 and losing by 45 runs, and Zimbabwe will be hoping to exploit those weaknesses.

    Finch's side particularly struggled against 18-year-old fast bowler Shaheen Afridi, who used his height and pace to great effect, and Blessing Muzarabani, the tall Zimbabwean seamer, will have watched on with interest.

    For Australia, it is a chance experiment as they seek to find a winning formula ahead of the tri-series final against Pakistan on 8 July.

    Key players

    Solomon Mire (Zimbabwe): The aggressive right-hander made Zimbabwe's highest ever T20I score in their most recent defeat to Pakistan, hitting 94 from 63 deliveries at the top of the order, including six sixes. Mire has been identified as a talented strokemaker for some time but has struggled for consistency at international level. His standout innings suggested his time may have arrived.

    D'Arcy Short (Australia): Short was happy to play second fiddle to Finch in Australia's thumping win over Zimbabwe, easing his way to 46 from 42 balls while his opening partner unleashed mayhem at the other end. The 27-year-old isn't the sort of player to stay in the background for long though and he'll be looking to show off his own array of attacking strokes after a relatively sedate series so far.

    Squads

    Zimbabwe: Hamilton Masakadza (c), Ryan Burl, Brian Chari, Chamu Chibhabha, Elton Chigumbura, Tendai Chisoro, Kyle Jarvis, Wellington Masakadza, Brandon Mavuta, Solomon Mire, Peter Moor (wk), Chris Mpofu, Ryan Murray, Tarisai Musakanda, Blessing Muzaraban, John Nyumbu, Malcolm Waller, Cephas Zhuwao

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

    <p> it will be easy for Aus. Zim showed better display of batting in last match but that day Pakistan performance was not good in the balling</p>

    and yet people were complaining Pakistan chasing a higher total against the Zimbabwe. Compared to the Aussies, we did much easily...

    Good to see Zimbabwe show some fight in the last two games.

    They will be competitive in the ODI series if Raza and Taylor return. Raza is most likely to return but not sure about Taylor and Williams.
