Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 1st ODI preview and prediction

Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 1st ODI will be played on October 1st at the Harare ground. Now Pakistan has played in this ground and they have already won the T20 series. Their confidence is at its highest level now. Though ODI series is a different ball game than the T20 matches and Pakistan will play under a new captain, but the win against the visitors in the T20 series definitely helps the team relax. In the last couple of months, Pakistan team has improved a lot. Even the commentators are saying that the team that is playing right now is a lot stronger team than the team that played in the world cup.

Pakistan won both the T20 matches by only a couple of runs. Zimbabwe could have won both the matches. But at the end it was the experience of Pakistan team which helped them in winning the games. It was definitely little disappointing for the crowd, not only their home team lost the games, but none of the teams was unable to play the T20 level exciting game. It seems that this time around Harare pitch was made for the bowlers.

Like the first T20, this time also Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi won the toss and elected to bat first. It is the obvious decision from any captains who win the toss in this ground. But once again Pakistan openers were failed to shine and they went back to the pavilion even before the team score reached 50. This is twice in a row that the openers failed to give the team a good start in spite of playing on a batting friendly ground. The ODI series will also be played in this ground, so it is high time that the Pakistan team management talks with these two players. In both the T20 games, their footwork was unimpressive. But what was more upsetting for the team was that none of the Pakistan batsmen was able to get 50 runs in this T20 match. Even Shoaib Malik was out only after scoring a disappointing 15.  Umar Akmal was the highest scorer for the team with just 36. This is something that needs to be changed in Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 1st ODI game. The team was only able to score 136 in 20 over, if they play like this in ODI series too then Zimbabwe may get a chance to upset their wishes.

Zimbabwe batsmen, however, were even more disappointing and they kept losing the wickets at a regular interval. The way they were playing it never looked like that they want to save the T20 series. The entire team was only able to score 121. But more than the loss their body language is something that made the fans very angry. The crowd came to the ground to observe how their team puts up a fight against the Pakistan team, but nothing like that happened. Even though Pakistan won the match, their biggest supporter will admit that along with Zimbabwe they also played very mediocre cricket.

All fans are now hoping that Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 1st ODI will be more exciting than the T20 series. They want the players to hit some big sixes and fours, after all this is why ODI and T20 games are so much more exciting than the test matches. This ODI series can be a high scoring one if all the players in both the teams are in form. No one wants to see a shorter version of games where the batsmen don’t hit big sixes. Can new captain Azhar Ali change the attitude of Pakistan team?
