Zim Vs Pak Live Scorecard
Pakistan is high unlikely to not wrap the series today. Zimbabwe will lock horns with Pakistan on Wednesday. Pakistan had convincing wins the first two games. This being a three match series, Pakistan just need one more win to wrap the series up.
Can Zimbabwe taste their first win?
Zimbabwe did not change their side in second ODI, This might indicate that they fell they are playing with best side. In that case they might not change their side third ODI either. They don’t have the bench strength to rely on Only possible change could be is Elton Chigumburra replacing a lower order batsmen. Hamilton Masakadze scored a fifty in their last game. But that won’t suffice to compensate the failures he is piling up. They never bothered Pakistan in the first two ODI’s. They did not taste victory in the T20I series also.
Will Yasir Shah and Mohd Hafeez have their bite?
Pakistan won the t20I series on this tour. They were defeated only once after on this tour, against Australia in second T20 of the series. Unlike hosts, They can dare to vet their bench strength. Mohd Hafeez would like to be in the playing XI. Yasir Shah would also like o come back against a team like Zimbabwe. He is away from the side for two years. There are couple of players who wouldn’t mind to be rested. Mohd Aamir is one among the category. With world cup one year away, Pakistan wouldn’t risk on Aamir’s fitness too much, Especially against Zimbabwe. Hasan Ali has a weird injury in second ODI. He injured himself while celebrating a wicket with his trademark celebration.
Babar Azam didnt look out of touch after coming out of injury. It highly unlikely fir him to finish the season without a century, Shoaib Malik will complete 7000 ODI runs this season. Pakistan would like to bat first to in order to give their batsmen more time. Zimbabwe would like to chase as the ground is suitable for chasing
Pakistan to erap the series.
Babar Azam to score fifty.
