Stanlake took 4 for 8 in his four overs and Pakistan had no room to recover than surrender. Coming to chase, it was skipper Aaron Finch who made the victory certain with his unbeaten 68 of just 33 deliveries. It was Pakistan’s second loss in last 13 T20Is.

Pakistan might undergo a couple of changes after a disastrous performance against Australia. One or two changes are expected especially in bowling line-up. M Nawaz and U Khan were quite expensive against Aussies and might make way for M Amir. Amir has not been used in the series so far.
Zimbabwe faced a big blow with the injury of their key bowler-Kyle Jarvis. Donald Tiripano has been named as the replacement. however, Chris Mpofu got the chance in the previous game and Tiripano is still on the bench. He might get a chance tomorrow.
