Zimbabwe will be looking to level the T20 series against Pakistan in game two of their three-game series. Can the hosts level it up, or will Pakistan secure a series victory?
Zimbabwe v Pakistan 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Match Winner
Pakistan are one win away from securing a T20 series win against Zimbabwe. They come into this game on the back of an 11-run success in Harare. The hosts won the toss and decided to bowl first, with Pakistan going on to post 149-7. Opener Mohammad Rizwan led from the front with an unbeaten 82, and to be honest he was the only one who really contributed anything to the total. ZImbabwe claimed seven wickets with Luke Jongwe and Wesley Madhevere both taking two wickets apiece. It wasn’t the largest total in the world to chase, but Zimbabwe could only reach 138-7 with their highest score being 34 from Craig Ervine. Usman Qadir was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan with figures of 3-29 off four overs. When you look at both squads, I just cannot see Zimbabwe beating Pakistan in this format. I am going for the tourists to win this one and go 2-0 in the three-match series.
Zimbabwe v Pakistan 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Pakistan Top Scorer
Pakistan posted 149-7 in their 11-run win over Zimbabwe on Wednesday, but there was only one player who really contributed to that total. Opener Mohammad Rizwan carried his bat through the full innings, as he was unbeaten with 82 from 61 balls. During that knock, he went on to smash 10 fours and one maximum. He was not well supported though, as Babar Azam could only score two and the second-highest score went to Danish Aziz with a mediocre 15. Pakistan cannot really rely on Rizwan to do all the work again, so I am expecting his team-mates to step up to the plate. I am backing fellow opener Babar Azam to show what he is made of with the top score for the tourists.
