PESHAWAR: The third match of the five-match ODI series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe will be played in Bulawayo today (Wednesday).

The match will begin at 12:15 (PST). Pakistan are currently leading the series 2-0 after comprehensive victories in the first two matches and will be looking to seal the series in today’s match.

On the other hand, Zimbabwe have much to ponder to improve their performance against Pakistan.

Pakistan are likely to test their bench strength given their strong position in the tournament. Mohammad Hafeez and Yasir Shah are strong contenders to play the match against considerably weak opponents and regain form. Junaid Khan may also play if Mohammad Aamir or Hasan Ali is given rest.

The pitch and conditions are likely to remain almost the same and the win or loss of toss will not matter as such.
