Pakistan would return to the field after a gap of 3 months from the tour of England as they host Zimbabwe in the very first game of the 3-match ODI series on Friday.

Babar Azam can't be missed in the PAK vs ZIM Dream 11 fantasy cricket as the batsman has amassed a total of 3359 runs in 74 ODIs at an average of over 54.
Don't forget to pick Sikandar Raza in the PAK vs ZIM Dream11 Match prediction as the all-rounder has scored 2801 runs in 100 ODIs at an average of 34.58. He also has managed to pick 59 wickets with the ball.
Captain Picks for Grand Leagues
Shaheen Afridi is coming off a brilliant National T20 Cup to this tournament. He has accounted for 40 wickets in just 19 ODIs at a strike rate of 23.1.
Sean Williams has amassed 3761 runs and picked up 71 wickets as well in 133 ODIs for Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe have a dismal record against Pakistan so far in the ODIs. They have won only 4 games out of 59 they have played against Pakistan. However, you cannot count them out as the Pakistan team has a knack of self-destruction from time-to-time. They are one of the most unpredictable sides in the world and Zimbabwe could benefit from it. Pakistan, meanwhile, would be feeling confident going into the tournament as each and every player in their squad had a good domestic T20 tournament. As per our PAK vs ZIM today match prediction, Pakistan are likely to win this game.
