We will bowl first. There is a bit of moisture and we will look to restrict them. Looking forward to win this one.
Looking to bat first as not too sure how the wicket will behave. We sort of achieved our goal of reaching the T20 World Cup but we could have done more. Stephen Doheny and Ross Adair are making their debuts. Whether you bat first or bowl first, in T20 you have to do both well.
Zimbabwe have won the TOSS and chose bowl first
