Pakistan tour of Zimbabwe, 2018
Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 5th ODI Preview
On a deteriorating day for Zimbabwe cricket team at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo in the last ODI, the Zimbabweans were decimated in every department of the game. Fakhar Zaman’s record-shattering double ton and a brilliant partnership of 304 runs for the first wicket helped them cruise over Zimbabwe by 244 runs to go 4-0 up in the series.
There isn’t much to say on the performance of the home side who have not shown any character in the ongoing series so far. They haven’t ticked any of their boxes and frankly speaking, they are in a disarray and aren’t looking comfortable at all for a consolidating win in the final ODI to give the home crowd something to cheer about.
Venue- Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo

Read on for ZIM vs PAK team news and ZIM vs PAK dream11 prediction.
The Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo has been a batting paradise, especially for the visitors as they have made the most of the conditions. On the other hand, the home side is yet to make a mark with their batting and bowling and once again the situation can be alike the last four One-dayers. Once again we can accept a run fest from Pakistan and the result could be the same as before.
