Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (in PAK)
Most cricket pundits predicted the first match to be a one-sided affair, but the visitors gave a tough fight to the hosts Pakistan in their very first International ODI match after the forced COVID break. Zimbabwe showed great promise in both departments of the game. In the first innings they restricted a strong Pakistan batting line-up to a below-par score of 281-8 inside the stipulated 50 overs. They also came very close to chasing it down. In the process, they took 255 runs before getting all out. Hence for that reason, this match cannot be considered as a cakewalk for Pakistan and hence timely changes in the playing eleven are necessary for the hosts to show their might. Opener Fakhar Zaman and vice-captain Shadab Khan are most likely to return back to the squad. Whereas for Zimbabwe no changes are expected and they are expected to retain the eleven that gave a strong fight to the experienced Pakistan side.
PAK Playing XI: Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman/ Abid Ali, Babar Azam (c), Haris Sohail, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Iftikhar Ahmed/ Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf
ZIM Playing XI: Brian Chari, Chamu Chibhabha (c), Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor(wk), Sean Williams, Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Tendai Chisoro, Carl Mumba, Richard Ngarava, Blessing Muzarabani
