Harare Sports Club is the venue where Zimbabwe plays most of its cricket. Till now, it has been host to 35 T20I encounters and this is a big number for a stadium to host so many T20 games.
The average score batting first here is 159. Australia once made a score of 229 on this track and that remains as the highest team score on this pitch. Aaron Finch‘s famous 172 was made at this venue. That knock is the best batting display here, so far.

The temperatures would range between 27 and 14 degrees Celsius in the next few days in Harare. These conditions would be good for the game, especially for the players.
However, unfortunately, rainfall is expected in the next one week in Harare. It won’t be a surprise if we actually see the games getting interrupted by this.
