Fawad Alam batted extremely well in the 1st Test.
Updated - May 6, 2021 11:39 pm
Hosts Zimbabwe lost the 1st Test inside just 3 days, by an innings and 116 runs. They will need to win the second test to level the series 1-1. Sean Williams’s absence has hurt them a lot in the 1st test, but he is likely to play in the 2nd test. Zimbabwe should work on their batting skills more if they want to win the 2nd test.
Pakistan, on the other hand, will definitely be the favourites for this test match, given the way they have played in the 1st Test. There were many positive outcomes in the 1st Test with Fawad Alam scoring a century and Hasan Ali picking up 9 wickets in a match. Pakistan are currently ranked 5th in Test rankings.

ZIM vs PAK Risky Captaincy Choices:
Azhar Ali has been an important member of the side for Pakistan over the years. Since many other players are performing well than him it’s risky to choose him as your fantasy team skipper.
Sean Williams missed out on the 1st Test due to injury, but he is likely to be fit for the 2nd Test. He is worth a risk in making him your Dream11 fantasy skipper.
Player you should avoid:
Nauman Ali managed to pick 3 wickets in the first Test. Since the surface has got pace which is helpful for the seamers, you can avoid him while making your fantasy teams.
