The hosts go into the game a point behind Zimbabwe, having won their last meeting last month. They posted 181/9 in a reduced 18-over game and Zimbabwe finished just short of 177/7. Singapore’s last match, against Nepal, was rained off.
Zimbabwe beat Nepal, twice – most recently with Sean Williams’ second consecutive half-century helping them to 160/6, before he took 3-21 to earn them a 40-run win. They are a point clear of Singapore and favourites to wrap up overall victory in this tri series.

Singapore Team News & Playing 11
SIN Team News
Singapore have handed out five T20 international debuts in this series as they continue to make their first steps in the format. Neither Aahan Gopinath Achar or Anitra Dutta made a big impression last time out, however, so those changes could be reversed.
SIN Key Players
Tim David: Top-scored for Zimbabwe with 64* from 44 balls in the opening game, before hitting two fours and four sixes in an innings if 41 from 24 balls when these teams last. The runs are really flowing for David at the moment.
Janak Prakash: Has proved himself useful with the bat in the middle order, while he claimed 2-34 last time out to move to three wickets in the series.
Amjad Mahboob: The Singapore captain took 2-20 on his return to the team last time out – comfortably the most economic of Singapore’s bowlers.
SIN Team Form
Singapore bounced back from defeat to Nepal – failing to defend 151/3 in the wake of a Paras Khadka onslaught – by beating Zimbabwe when these teams last met. Tim David and Manpreet Singh both hit 41 in a total of 181/9, before Amjad Mahboob’s 2-20 helped them restrict Zimbabwe to 177/7 from 18 overs.
ZIM Team News
Zimbabwe are building for the future – whatever that might hold given their current ICC suspension – and they have beaten Nepal twice so far, either side of defeat to Singapore. Brian Chari, Richard Ngarava, Daniel Jakiel and William Mashinge have all made their Zimbabwe T20i debuts in this series.
ZIM Key Players
Ryan Burl: The 25-year-old leg-spinner is in good all-round form. He took 1-19 in the first game before hitting 41* and then 3/24 and 1/8 in his matches since. ‘’
Sean Williams: The captain and all-rounder has been in excellent form. He took 2-19, 1-34 and 3-21 in the three games so far, and comes into this match on the back of scores of 66 and 53 in his last two innings.
Tendai Chatara: Took four wickets in his two games in the Bangladesh Tri-Nation Series and has two from two – both against Nepal – so far in this tournament. He now has 60 T20 wickets from 54 innings in his career.
ZIM Team Form
Zimbabwe have beaten Nepal twice, but lost to Singapore in between those victories. Sean Williams has been in excellent form, taking 2-19 in the first game as Zimbabwe restricted Nepal to 132/6 before winning by five wickets.
He then scored 66 from 35 balls against the hosts, but Zimbabwe finished four runs short of Singapore’s 181/9 in a match reduced to 18 overs. They bounced back last time out, however, as Williams scored 53 in a total of 160/6 and took 3-21 as they held Nepal to 120/9 in reply.
