Zimbabwe will have to play some extraordinary cricket to beat in-form Pakistan team when they take on the visitors in the second ODI match at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo.
Without 8 of their top players, Zimbabwe is looking more like a club team and the newcomers have failed to put up a fight so far. After losing all the games in T20I tri-series, Zimbabwe lost the first ODI by record 201 runs, captain Hamilton Masakadza and other senior players like Elton Chigumbura, Chamu Chibhabha, and Peter Moor have to lead from the front to challenge Pakistan. On the other hand, Pakistan has been playing excellent cricket for the past a few months and should win all the games with ease.
