Probable Playing XIs for Zimbabwe vs Pakistan
Mohammed Rizwan(wk), Babar Azam(c), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Nawaz, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shan Masood, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf
Wesley Madhevere, Regis Chakabva(wk), Sean Williams, Craig Ervine(c), Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Sikandar Raza, Richard Ngarava, Milton Shumba, T Chatara
Captain: H Rauf
H Rauf’s speed and the seam will be too much for Zimbabwe batters to handle.
Wicketkeeper: M Rizwan
M Rizwan missed the chance against India. But the Zimbabwe match will fetch him back his run-making habit.
Vice-captain: S Raza
S Raza is again a source that will yield points through batting and bowling.
Batters: B Azam, S Masood, C Ervine
B Azam and S Masood are the obvious choices for the match against teams like Zimbabwe. Especially when they bat at the top of the order, they will get most of the opportunity to get more runs.
All-rounders: S Khan, M Nawaz, S Raza, S Williams
As a duo, S Khan and M Nawaz haven’t been that good for Pakistan. But they are the first choice spin duo which Pakistan will work to get successful.
With his left-arm spin, S Williams will be a key for Zimbabwe in the middle overs.
Bowlers – T Chatara, S Afridi, H Rauf
S Afridi for his new ball skills. He can uproot the stumps with his extreme swing factor.
T Chatara has been bowling decently throughout this tournament, and it will continue.
