The 1st T20I match between Zimbabwe and Pakistan will begin on April 21st. Players from Zimbabwe are in high demand, as many of them excelled in their domestic T20 competition and would like to repeat their success against the visiting Pakistan team.
On the other hand, Pakistan had a grand South Africa tour, winning both the ODI and T20I series. The captain was in good form with the bat and will be hoping to score runs in the series. Though Pakistan is the favourite, Zimbabwe is a team that should not be underestimated.
The weather appears to be perfect, with temperatures in the mid-twenties.
Harare’s pitch is ideal for batting, with an overall first-inning score of 159. The team who was batting first has a better record at this venue, but chasing hasn’t been poor either.
Compared to spinners, pace bowlers have done well at this place, as the conditions are more conducive to seam bowlers. They will enjoy bowling on this track because the ball swings early, tempting captains to bat first after winning the toss.
During the first T20I between Zimbabwe and Pakistan, the toss will be crucial.
