The ZIM vs NED second ODI will be played in Harare on March 23, Thursday. Zimbabwe are playing an ODI series against the Netherlands at home which is part of the ICC ODI Super League. The series will serve as a warm-up for the upcoming qualification matches. 

Netherlands chased down the 250 required to win the first ODI in the penultimate delivery of their innings. Teja Nidamanuru batting at number seven scored an unbeaten 110 to win the game for his side and give them the lead. Colin Ackermann (50) and Shariz Ahmad (30) were the other chief scorers in the chase.

Earlier in the game, the Netherlands won the toss and opted to bowl first. Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza returned to the side in the first ODI. Both were dismissed cheaply as wicketkeeper-batter Clive Madande scored 74 off 98 deliveries to take them to the total. There were some handy contributions from the lower order as well but the total proved not enough.
