Hosts Zimbabwe take on Pakistan in the decisive third One-Day International (ODI) at Harare. The hosts shocked their higher-ranked opponents in the first ODI with a seven-wicket win. Pakistan won the second bout by 90 runs.
 
Both sides have everything to play for in the final ODI which promises to be an enthralling contest.
 
Zimbabwe have been whitewashed 5-0 by India in a recent series, Brendan Taylor’s side fought well in the two Twenty20 internationals against Pakistan but still lost. In the first ODI they chased down the target professionally but lost the plot in the second match.

Will Misbah-ul-Haq‘s men win the title or will Brendan Taylor-led Zimbabwe script history?
