Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Pakistan vs Zimbabwe 2020 - 3rd ODI
The 3rd and the last game of the three-match ODI series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe will be played at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi in Pakistan.
After fighting it out in the opening ODI of the three-match series, Zimbabwe let the match slip away from their grasp only in the last five overs.
Pakistan's victory in the second ODI of the series was much more comprehensive. The Men in Green won by 6 wickets with almost 15 overs to spare and highlighted the difference between the two teams.
There were a lot of positives to take for Pakistan. Mohammad Musa did a great job after coming into the side in place of Wahab Riaz and finished with figures of 6.1-1-21-2, which is a great sign for the future of Pakistan cricket.
Haris Rauf also looked good but it was Iftikhar Ahmed who was the surprise. The handy spinner picked up his maiden 5-wicket haul while conceding 40 runs from his 10 overs and his bowling services can be used a lot more in the coming games.
Sean Williams was the top run scorer for Zimbabwe with 75 off 70 deliveries and also got support from the centurion of the last match, Brendan Taylor.
Babar Azam, as predicted, was then the top scorer for Pakistan and finished unbeaten on 77 to see the match to the close.
Tendai Chisoro was the top wicket taker for Zimbabwe. He picked up two wickets from his 10 overs while conceding 49 runs.
No change in the result is expected in the final match of the series.

Pakistan - Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam(c), Haris Sohail, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan(wk), Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf, Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Abid Ali, Khushdil Shah, Usman Qadir, Muhammad Musa
