Pak vs Zim today match prediction: There are no more dead rubbers in ODI super league as each and every ODI weighs 10 points which is a valuable thing as no team wants to leave it by playing carefree cricket. Earlier in the year, Ireland came back hard after losing the series against England in their own backyard to win the 3rd ODI to pick 10 points in the ODI super league.
Pakistan played good cricket in the 2nd ODI compared to the 1st one as they won rather convincingly in the end. Babar Azam went about his business in a calm manner and safely took his team home without any fuss. Haider Ali was exciting and showed a lot of promise in his short stay at the crease.
Zimbabwe were pathetic with the bat as they gave their wickets to lose shots. Pakistan’s sixth bowler in Iftikhar Ahmed picked 5 wickets in the game, it just goes on to show the lack of application from Zimbabwe players.
Let’s take a look at Pak vs Zim dream11 prediction
In Pak vs Zim today match prediction lets take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides
They have found a utility cricketer in Iftikhar Ahmed who was handy with the ball and even went on to pick his maiden 5 wicket haul in ODIs. Mohammad Musa was impressive with the ball as well. Their captain Babar Azam looked solid as usual.
Sean Williams, Craig Ervine and Brendon Taylor are all in good form.
Their lead spinner in Imad Wasim was taken apart in the previous game by Sean Williams. Abid Ali was disappointing for one more time in the series with the bat. Their openers should take advantage of the initial field restrictions which they aren’t taking.
Their openers are finding it difficult to score runs. They are not giving good starts for their middle order to capitalize on. Too much pressure on Brendon Taylor and Sean Willaims. Sikandar Raza should come to the party and take the responsibility as a senior player in the team.

Pak vs Zim dream11 team for today’s match
In Pak vs Zim dream11 prediction, lets take a look at some important players from both the sides
Babar Azam: After a rare failure in the first game he came back with a bang in the 2nd game with a classy half-century as expected and he will be looking to go big in 3rd ODI as well.
Sean Williams: He was all class in the 2nd ODI and handled the Pakistan bowlers with ease. His ability to counter attack is a massive advantage and he is a must in fantasy teams.
Brendon Taylor: He disappointed in the second game and was caught out at deep square leg after a well made 35. He looked good for his 35. He already has a century under his name in the series. He is a quality pick for fantasy teams.
Shaheen Afridi: He went wicket-less in the 2nd ODI which is a rare sight and would want to make up for it. If he plays, he should be a direct entrant in the team.
Other picks: Iftikhar Ahmed, Imam-ul-Haq, Haider Ali and craig Ervine are all good picks.
Today match score: 250 is a par score on this ground
Today match pitch report: The wicket will be on the slower side but should hold good for the course of 100 overs
