Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor has won the toss and elected to bowl in the second One-Day International (ODI) against Pakistan at Harare.

Zimbabwe beat Pakistan in the first ODI by seven wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. This followed Pakistan’s 2-0 sweep of the Twenty20 International series.

Pakistan, led by Misbah-ul-Haq, will be looking to avoid a series loss, while Zimbabwe will be looking to seal the win to get an unlikely series victory with one match to go.

Zimbabwe have gone in with an unchanged side from the first ODI. Abdur Rehman replaces Haris Sohail in the Pakistan team.


Zimbabwe: Vusi Sibanda, Hamilton Masakadza, Timycen Maruma, Brendan Taylor (c & wk), Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Elton Chigumbara, Brian Vitori, Prosper Utseya, Tendai Chetara, Tinashe Panyagara.

Pakistan: Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shehzad, Misbah-ul-Haq (c), Umar Amin, Shahid Afridi, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Junaid Khan, Abdur Rehman, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Irfan.
