Captaincy picks for ZIM vs PAK

Brendan Taylor

Since there is uncertainty over Sean Williams, Brendan Taylor’s role becomes all the more important for the Zimbabwe team. He is their most experienced batter and has played 32 Tests. He has scored 2089 runs with six centuries and would be expecting to get his seventh ton in this match as for Zimbabwe to win, it is absolutely crucial for him to get to a big score. 

Fawad Alam

The comeback man of the Pakistan cricket team scored another hundred in the previous match. That was his fourth ton and he has reached the three-figure mark every time after reaching his half-century. He has been in great form, having scored centuries in the last two series against New Zealand and Zimbabwe.
