Bulawayo, July 16 at 12:45 PM IST
After a humiliating loss by 201 runs in the first ODI of the five-match series, Zimbabwe would be looking to put a challenge when they meet Pakistan for the second ODI at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo.
The first match was the walk in the park for the visiting Pakistan. Put in to bat, Pakistan put up 309 on the board for the loss of 7 wickets, with Imam-ul-Haq notching his second ODI century. Opener Fakhar Zaman and Asif Ali also chipped in with the bat.
In reply, Zimbabwe lost their first wicket in the second over of the innings. The wickets kept tumbling, and the chase never picked up. The hosts were bowled out for 107 in 35 overs, with leg-spinner Shadab Khan inflicting the maximum damage upon them – returning with figures of 4/32.
Speaking of the pitch conditions, it looked like a batting-friendly wicket in the first ODI with Pakistan posting a total in excess of 300. There should not be any trouble for the batsmen.
