PAK vs ZIM Prediction, Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – ODI Series, Match 2

Despite failing, Babar Azam is still the favourite option as captain in Fantasy team.


Match Details:

The 2nd match of the ODI series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe will be played at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi.

The match is scheduled to start at 12:00 PM Local Time (12:30 PM IST). Live Streaming will be available on PCB’s official Youtube Channel.


The first ODI was a closely contested game between the two sides. Although Zimbabwe fell short of the target, they showed great composure and resilience after losing two early wickets. At one stage they looked favourites but couldn’t quite finish the game. With Brendan Taylor back in the Zimbabwe side, the middle order looks solid along with the experienced Craig Ervine and Sean Williams.

Pakistan, on the other hand, looked a bit rusty in the field, allowing Zimbabwe to get close to their total. Zimbabwe did try to take advantage of that but failed to get over the line in the end. We can expect the Pakistan side to come back harder in the second match. That being said, a win here for Zimbabwe would do a world of good if they are to qualify directly for the World Cup.

PAK vs ZIM Weather Report for Match 2:

Pitch Condition/Report:

The pitch looks very even with assistance for both, batsmen and bowlers. Although run-scoring seemed easy as the ball was coming nicely onto the bat, the fast bowlers had enough purchase too as they picked up as many as 12 out of the 18 wickets that fell in the first game.
