With this tie, and being played at the same venue, it can be expected that the pitch will behave in a neutral fashion, supporting both batsmen and the bowlers. As for Zimbabwe, their batting has been an issue in the series so far and would definitely look to make a couple of changes or even more in the order, with Peter Moor and Chamu Chibhabha likely to be on the receiving end owing to their poor show in the last match. While for Afghanistan, their batting line-up might also need an overhaul, with most of the batsmen failing to perform on Saturday. However, it could also be the other way, with the skipper sticking with the same squad as one bad game is enough to press the panic button. LIVE CRICKET UPDATES: Afghanistan vs Zimbabwe 2015-16, 4th ODI at Sharjah
