Zimbabwe vs Pakistan, 2021 – 2nd Test – Match Preview & Betting Tips

Match Details

Zimbabwe will take on Pakistan in the 2nd Test at the Harare Sports Club. The match is set to get underway from May 07th at 1:00 PM IST

Preview

Zimbabwe punched above their weight in the T20I series but to expect a similar performance in Tests was a bit too much to ask. There is just too much difference in quality between the two teams. Also, in T20Is, a couple of good performances can get you on top but to win a Test match, you need to consistently dominate your opposition for five days which obviously is not easy for Zimbabwe. Unfortunately, not a lot can be expected from the hosts in the 2nd Test as well.

Read on for a full analysis of this game and some betting tips that might benefit you. If you want to know more, then parimatch India can give you more useful betting tips.

Pitch Report

A lot of cricket has already been played on this wicket which would have sucked its pace. Even then, it should offer some help with the new ball.

Probable Playing XIs

Zimbabwe

Prince Masvaure, Kevin Kasuza, Tarisai Musakanda, Brendan Taylor (c), Milton Shumba, Roy Kaia, Regis Chakabva (wk), Donald Tiripano, Tendai Chisoro, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava

Pakistan

Imran Butt, Abid Ali, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam (c), Fawad Alam, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Faheem Ashraf, Nauman Ali, Hasan Ali, Sajid Khan, Shaheen Afridi

Key Performers

Babar Azam – The Pakistan skipper has been in red hot form. He was dismissed for a first-ball duck in the first Test thus he will be keen to perform better in the next game.

Fawad Alam – Fawad Alam’s return to Test cricket has been very pleasing. Post his return, he has played four Test series’ and has scored hundreds in three of those. In the last match, he top-scored for Pakistan with a magnificent 140. He’ll look to have another good game.

Hasan Ali – Hasan Ali delivered a Man of the Match performance in the last game, picking up 9 wickets. He bowled great lines and looked too good for the Zimbabweans. He’ll once again pose a stern challenge for the hosts.

Our Betting Tip

There is just too much difference in quality between both teams and Pakistan should win this without much struggle.

Probable Winners

Zimbabwe vs Pakistan, 2021: 3rd T20I – Match Preview & Betting Tips

Match Details

Zimbabwe vs Pakistan – 3rd T20I

Date & Time – April 25, 2021; 2:30 PM IST

Venue – Harare Sports Club, Harare.

Preview

The decider T20I between Zimbabwe and Pakistan of the three-match series will be played on Sunday. After losing the opening game, the hosts came back stunningly defending a meagre total of 118 runs. This was also the first win for Zimbabwe over Pakistan in 16 T20Is. They will now be confident of doing well and will come hard at the visitors. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be keen on making a comeback after a poor show and are certainly the favourites to win this match.

Probable Playing XIs

Zimbabwe

Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Brendan Taylor (C), Tadiwanashe Marumani/Sean Williams, Wesley Madhevere, Ryan Burl, Regis Chakabva (WK), Tarisai Musakanda, Luke Jongwe, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava.

Pakistan

Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Babar Azam (C), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Danish Aziz, Asif Ali/Haider Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Usman Qadir, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain, Haris Rauf, Arshad Iqbal.

Predicting Top Batsman and Bowler

Babar Azam

Babar Azam, the Pakistan skipper, would be definitely looking to make amends for not being able to finish the game in the last outing. He scored 41 runs off 45 balls but got out at a crucial moment which triggered a collapse. Having said that, this is a great chance for Babar to redeem himself and play a match-winning knock. He is in good form at the moment and will have to make the most of it.

Luke Jongwe

Luke Jongwe has been the find of this series for Zimbabwe. His variations made him literally unplayable in the previous match. Jongwe returned with the figures of 4/18 in the 118-run defence and picked wickets of Mohammed Rizwan, Babar, Haris Rauf and Arshad Iqbal. He bowls in the death overs as well which makes him a good candidate to become a top bowler.

Zimbabwe vs Pakistan, 2021: 2nd T20I – Match Preview & Betting Tips

Preview

After a thrilling first T20 International, Pakistan and Zimbabwe will lock horns against each other in the second T20I of three-match series at the Harare Sports Club in Harare on April 23, Friday. The first T20I saw the home skipper Sean Williams winning the toss and inviting the Men in Green to put the total on the board first. Batting first, the team had a decent outing as they managed 149 runs on the board on the back of 82 runs scored by Mohammad Rizwan.

Chasing 150, many Zimbabwe batters got the desired start but they failed to convert it into something substantial. In the end, the equation boiled down to the hosts needing 20 off 6. However, Haris Rauf gave just six runs in the last over to ensure that Pakistan wins the game by 11 runs. In the second T20I, the hosts will be looking forward to redeeming themselves while Babar Azam & Co. will hope to clinch the series.

Probable Playing XIs

PAKISTAN

Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Haider Ali, Asif Ali/Usman Qadir, Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf

ZIMBABWE

Brendan Taylor (WK), Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams (C), Wesley Madhevere, Regis Chakabva, Ryan Burl, Donald Tiripano, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava

Predicting Top Batsman and Bowler

Mohammad Rizwan

Pakistan’s opening batsman was at his fluent best in the first T20 International as he hammered 80 runs off just 61 balls. His knock included ten boundaries and one maximum at a strike rate of 134.43. Rizwan was the lone warrior for Pakistan in the first T20 International against Zimbabwe and is expected to continue his good form in the next game too.

Usman Qadir

The 27-year-old spinner Usman Qadir was the pick of the bowler for Pakistan in the first T20 International as he ended up with three wickets under his belt while conceding just 29 runs in his four overs. Qadir played a vital cog as he helped Pakistan defend a low total of 149 runs.

Probable Winners

Pakistan are expected to win this match.

Zimbabwe vs Pakistan, 2021 – 1st T20I: Match Preview & Betting Tips

Preview

With all the focus on the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), Zimbabwe and Pakistan will lock horns in the first of the three-match T20I series in Harare. The visitors are coming off a brilliant South Africa where they won the ODI and T20I series. Their batsmen, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan showed exemplary form while the bowlers did their job perfectly in almost every game.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, have their talismanic cricketer Brendon Taylor back and he will open the innings. A lot will depend on how he bats at the top of the order. Sean Williams and Craig Ervine are the other experienced cricketers in the line-up but they will miss Sikandar Raza who has been ruled out due to injury.

Probable Playing XIs

Pakistan

Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Haider Ali, Asif Ali/Usman Qadir, Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf

Zimbabwe

Brendan Taylor (WK), Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams (C), Wesley Madhevere, Regis Chakabva, Ryan Burl, Donald Tiripano, Wellington Masakadza, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarava

Predicting Top Batsman and Bowler

Babar Azam

The Pakistan skipper was in scintillating form in the four-match T20I series against South Africa. He scored 210 runs in four T20Is at an average of more than 50 and a strike-rate of 143.84. He will open the innings and get the maximum chance to score big. It shouldn’t be a surprise if he ends up winning the Man of the Match award.

Shaheen Afridi

The left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi wasn’t in the best of form with the ball in South Africa. He picked three wickets in four T20Is but his pace will definitely trouble Zimbabwe batsmen. He will bowl at the death as well which gives him a chance to become the top bowler from Pakistan.

Probable Winners
