Pakistan welcome Zimbabwe to Rawalpindi and will once again be delighted to be playing cricket at home after such a long time without playing on home turf. They have an impressive squad at their disposal for this series and while both sides will likely have some degree of rust, the Pakistan squad have been playing domestic cricket. While they have decided to leave out some of their veterans, they have some exciting youngsters in their squad and plenty of world class talent to call upon. The likes of Babar Azam will be highly motivated to score plenty of runs in this series and it is hard to see how Zimbabwe compete with them. In 59 previous meetings between the two in one-day internationals, Pakistan have won 52 of those matches, Zimbabwe have won four, with two no results and one tie. All the signs point towards a comprehensive Pakistan victory and a series whitewash could be worth considering also.Than we will be seeing a good game in both teams.
Remember the last time:-Zimbabwe last played an ODI in Pakistan in 2015. However, the two teams played a full-fledged five-match ODI series in Zimbabwe in 2018. The visitors will want to improve their questionable record in the country in this format. After 19 ODIs against Pakistan in their backyard, Zimbabwe have just one win. The overall record is also in favour of Pakistan, who have won 52 of the 59 matches between these teams.
A lot has changed for both the teams, notably on the leadership front. While Sarfaraz Ahmed was the skipper the last time Pakistan played an ODI, it was Sean Williams leading the side for Zimbabwe.
