Pakistan are expected to seal the T20I series by handing Zimbabwe their second consecutive defeat.
Updated - Nov 8, 2020 11:42 am
The 2nd match of the T20I series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe will be played at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi.
The match is scheduled to start at 03:30 PM Local Time (04:00 PM IST).
It was a clinical performance from Pakistan in the first T20I, as they won comfortably by 6 wickets. With this win, the home side leads the three-match T20I series 1-0 and will look to seal the series in the second game itself. This series has allowed Pakistan to try out new faces in the quest of assembling a solid team for the T20 World Cup.
With the top order falling cheaply again, Zimbabwe didn’t have the best of starts, which meant they were behind the game right from the start. Though their middle-order has been working well for them, they would want to quickly resolve their woes at the top if they are to level the series. The big challenge for both the teams would be tackling fatigue, as there is no rest day
