After winning the T20I Tri-series Pakistan will face off Zimbabwe in the 5-match ODI series at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. Pakistan hasn't played any ODI game for the last 6 months and haven't won an ODI since October 2017 so this is going to be a good opportunity for them against a depleted Zimbabwe side.
And on the other hand, Zimbabwe will miss the service of their senior players like Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza, Graeme Cremer and Kyle Jarvis who made themselves unavailable for this series due to their pay dispute with Zimbabwe Cricket Board.
