PAK vs ZIM Fantasy Wicket-Keeper
Brendan Taylor will be our wicket-keeper in this game. Taylor is one of the best batsmen of Zimbabwe and was brilliant in the ODI series. He opens the inning in this format and was looking good in the last game as well.
PAK vs ZIM Fantasy Batsmen
Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, and Babar Azam will be our batsmen from Pakistan. Babar played a match-winning knock in the last game and proved his class yet again with the bat whereas, Fakhar & Haider are talented players and scored piles of runs in the last National T20 Cup. All three of them are brilliant top-order players and are expected to score the majority of the runs for Pakistan.
PAK vs ZIM Fantasy All-Rounders
Mohammad Hafeez will be our all-rounder from Pakistan. Hafeez won the Man of the Series in the last T20I series against England and looked solid in the last game as well. He is a genuine match-winner in this format of the game.
Sean Williams and Wesley Madhavere will be our all-rounders from Zimbabwe. Williams was brilliant in the ODI series and, he bats at the number 3 slot in T20I cricket. He is one of the biggest match-winners of Zimbabwe whereas, Madhavere is a talented player and scored a brilliant half-century in the last game as well. Both of them are really good players.
PAK vs ZIM Fantasy Bowlers
From Pakistan, the trio of Haris Rauf, Wahab Riaz, and Mohammad Hasnain will make it into our team. All three of them bowled really well in the last T20I game and registered their names in the wicket-taking column. They should take the majority of the wickets in this game as well.
[If Shaheen Afridi plays, pick him in the team]
Blessing Muzarabani will be our bowler from Zimbabwe. Muzarabani is the best bowler of Zimbabwe at the moment and, he continued his good form in the T20Is after a great ODI series. He has to be picked.
Match Prediction: Pakistan will be the favourites to win this game.
