Zimbabwe v Pakistan 3rd ODI at Harare Live Score and Preview

Zimbabwe will want to salvage something from their ODI series against Pakistan when the two teams face off for the final match of their 3 match ODI series in Harare.

Zimbabwe came into this series on the back of a thumping win over Bangladesh in the tests as well as in the ODI series. But it is victory against formidable opponents that will earn the plaudits for Zimbabwe and the team know that very well.

The good thing with this side is the fact that they are really young. Age and time is on their side, but some wins against good opposition is a must if they have to keep themselves motivated and their fans happy.

No one likes to lose and that too in front of home support. The manner in which Mohammed Hafeez and Imran Farhat dispatched the Zimbabwe bowling would have hurt the morale of this team.

They will definitely go out on the field to prove a point or two to their detractors.
Pakistan on the other hand have done what was expected of them – embarrass the opposition.

Now, with a squad full of young and bright talent, Pakistan will be expected to chop and change and try out different combinations. The young guns will get a game at Harare and there are exciting times for Pakistan cricket ahead.

The likes of Younus Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq may be rested for this game in order to make room for the younger lot. It will be interesting to see what unfolds in the course of this match.

Pitch Report

It is a lovely batting track here at the Harare Sports club. The batsmen will have to apply themselves and spend some time on the crease before they can really cut lose because of the bounce. It will take a while to adjust to the bounce on this pitch.

Men To Watch

Zimbabwe – Brendan Taylor did score a half century in the last encounter but he would aim to better his strike rate this time around.

Pakistan – Mohammad Hafeez’s fine innings the other day makes him our man to watch for Pakistan. We expect some fireworks from the Pakistani opener.
