PTV Sports live cricket streaming Pakistan vs Zimbabwe 2nd ODI at Lahore Qaddafi Stadium
LAHORE, Pakistan: As part of the three-match bilateral cricket series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe, the two sides will face each other in the second one day international (ODI) at the Qaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Friday.
The green shirts have already won the first match and have the opportunity to clinch the ODI home series after a long time as well as they did in previous two T20 internationals.
The Zimbabwe Captain Elton Chigumbura will not be the part of his team for next two games against Pakistan after the International Cricket Council (ICC) imposed a two-match ban on him for his team’s slow over-rate in first ODI in Lahore.
Elton Chigumbura was in good form as he scored his maiden ODI hundred in the first match against Pakistan. His suspension has put more pressure on rest of Zimbabwe batsmen to perform better.
The right-handed batsman Hamilton Masakadza will now lead the Zimbabwe side for rest of the three-match ODI series.
The two teams have not been playing well in limited over games for a while now. In their last five ODIs, Pakistan has won only one game while Zimbabwe had to face defeat in all encounters.
For the second ODI, Pakistan is unlikely to make any change in its playing side. However if it happens, it will be the replacement of Hammad Azam with faster bowler Junaid Khan.
The first ODI was a high scoring match as Pakistan put a total of 375 runs on the board while in response, Zimbabwe scored 334 runs.
