After losing their opening match to India, Pakistan will take on Zimbabwe today in the 24th match at Perth Stadium. It is the 3rd match of the day.
To date, Pakistan and Zimbabwe have played a total 17 T20Is with Pakistan winning 16 of them and Zimbabwe bagging just one. The first match of ZIM against SA ended in no result in Hobart after being ruined due to rain. In today’s clash, the win is crucial for both the teams but eventually only one will be the winner.
The Men in Green got a disappointment recently, due to the tough stand of Kohli against Pak. Pakistan had a rich past with Zimbabwe in T20s and this would be a great advantage for the side.
Against Zimbabwe, Babar Azam and Rizwan would love to score higher as they got woeful dismissal early against India. In their absence, the middle order batters made wonderful innings and kept their zest high on the pitch during the tournament.
When we talk of the bowling attack, Pakistan is backed with the support of great pacers with Haris Rauf being in the lead attack as he has a great understanding to withstand Australian conditions played in many BBL seasons.
Shaheen Afridi is back on the groove with great strength and Naseem Shah is the best upcoming talent. Their pace attack can make a huge difference at the Perth stadium as it is one of the fastest pitches. Pakistan can win the match brilliantly if their top-order plays in great form.
On the contrary side, Zimbabwe lacks experience of playing against Pakistan and good players to step up against the team. Currently, Sikandar Raza is the best player in form at the moment. Skipper Craig Ervine and all-rounder Sean Williams are more senior players who can keep up with the hopes of their fans.
From the bowling department, Muzarabani will need to lead the attack and Richard Ngarava, Brad Evans, Luke Jongwe, and Tendi Chatara must have to assist the frontline pacers in today’s match. Sikandar is playing in the best form in this World Cup.
