Pakistan will take on Zimbabwe in the second One-Day International between the two sides at the Harare Sports Club, Harare. Pakistan won the Twenty20 International (T20I) series 2-0 as Zimbabwe failed to compete and finish games despite being in good positions during the matches. In the first one-dayer, Pakistan crushed Zimbabwe by a huge margin of 131 runs. It was the spin of Yasir Shah that proved to be too much for the hosts as the leg-spinner ran through the batting line-up of Zimbabwe with figures of 9-0-26-6!

Elton Chigumbura, the captain of Zimbabwe will be hoping that his batsman can step up for Zimbabwe and ensure that they stay in the series with a win today. He will want the experience trio of Hamilton Masakadza, Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza to step up to the plate to ensure that Zimbabwe are in the series. Their bowlers have been decent so far but the batsmen have let them down. Chamu Chibhabha has stepped up with the ball but his main job of scoring runs is what the hosts will want him to come good. Zimbabwe have had too many good games without any wins. They will look to be consistent in terms of their game and ensure that they keep improving every single game. Their main issue is facing spin bowling and the hosts will hope to not repeat the mistakes again. Live cricket updates: Zimbabwe vs Pakistan, 2nd ODI at Harare
