Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 2021 - 3rd T20I
The 3rd T20I of the three-match series between Zimbabwe and Pakistan will be played at the Harare Sports Club, Harare in Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe registered their first-ever victory against Pakistan in T20 Internationals in the second T20 of the 3-match series. The win came from their 16th match against the opponent.
The Pakistan middle-order has been unable to adjust to the low and slow conditions of Zimbabwe and with bowlers like Ryan Burl and Luke Jongwe, Zimbabwe have a brilliant chance of pocketing the series.
Mohammad Rizwan is the top run-scorer for Pakistan with 95 runs at a strike rate of 120. He has struck 11 fours and one six. Babar Azam has also made 43 runs at a strike rate of 87.
Usman Qadir has been the best bowler for Pakistan and has picked up 4 wickets while bowling at an average of 14 and an economy rate of 7.12.
Pakistan are expected to draft in Sarfaraz Ahmed in the middle order in place of Asif Ali. Given the pitches in Zimbabwe, it won't be all about slam bang cricket in the decider, but the art of batting needs to come to the fore.
Tinashe Kamunhukamwe is the top run-scorer for Zimbabwe with 63 runs at a strike rate of 84. He has struck 7 fours. Luke Jongwe has also made 37 runs at a strike rate of 119.
Luke Jongwe has been the best bowler for Zimbabwe and has picked up 6 wickets while bowling at an average of 7 and an economy rate of 6.14. Wesley Madhevere also has 2 wickets.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Zimbabwe - Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Wesley Madhevere, Brendan Taylor (c), Tarisai Musakanda, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Ryan Burl, Regis Chakabva (wk), Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava
