ZIM vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 3rd T20I

Pakistan are heavily reliant on Mohammad Rizwan.


Zimbabwe pulled off a miraculous win in the 2nd T20I against Pakistan to level the series 1-1. It wasn’t easy for them to defend the target of 119 but they did a fabulous job and won the game by 19 runs to take the series to the decider, which is to be played on Sunday.

Pakistan faltered in the run-chase in the 2nd T20I and paid a high price for that as they lost the match by 19 runs. It was an eye-opener for them as they are completely dependant on the top-order batsmen. They are still the favourites to win this series, but will have to avoid making the same mistakes.
