As the Zimbabwean Domestic T20 competition, 2019 is moving forward, it is getting rather interesting to watch the games. In a strange change in fortune, all the four teams currently have two wins from their four games but it’s the net run rate and the bonus points which sets them apart. When Mountaineers face Mashonaland Eagles at the Old Hararians Sports Club in Harare on March 15, the rivalry will reach a new height with both teams desperate to win a match in order to make it to the final on March 17.
Mountaineers are currently holding the second place in the points table with two wins and two losses from their four games, but fortunately for them, they have a bonus point under their belt which obviously gives them an edge. Mashonaland Eagles, on the other hand, have also managed two wins and two losses from their four games but in fairness, their net run rate has forced them to stick to the fourth position in the league table.
With just two rounds of matches to be played, all the teams would be pumped up and would try their best to qualify for the final. All this excitement makes this tournament a better viewing spectacle. Any closely fought tournament makes for a great experience for the fans and the story isn’t so different with this season of Stanbic Bank 20 Series.
The last game played on this track was between Matabeleland Tuskers and Mountaineers where the Tuskers won the match by 106 runs. Tuskers did the usual by putting up a good score on this wicket, but Mountaineers in return failed to get even 100 runs. Having said that, this pitch is good for batting usually but maybe with all the matches being played the surface has started to break a little.

Mountaineers fell down to a disappointing loss in the previous game which might force them to make some changes to their side, but it can’t be predicted how they would bring in, considering that they still in a good position in the tournament.

ME vs MOU Dream11 Prediction
You can fancy putting your money on R Chakabva from ME as we think his experience sets him apart in this category at least. But R Mutumbami has featured in more matches this season which makes him an equally good pick.
I Kaia and T Tsiga have done well with the bat for Mountaineers this season, so we would recommend you going for both of them. E Chigumbura and B Mudzinganyama of ME is a great pick as well considering his power-hitting abilities. You can also place your money on T Maruma.
We highly recommend you opting for S Masakadza and R Kaia for the all-rounder’s spot.
T Chatara, W Masakadza and R Ngarava would certainly be our picks but you can also opt for D Tiripano.
