The Big Picture

As the caravan of the Zimbabwe tri-series rolls on, a beleaguered Zimbabwe unit will take on Pakistan on Wednesday, July 04, 2018.

Both teams are coming off a humbling at the hands of Australia in their previous game and would need to win on Wednesday to keep their hopes alive of staying in the tournament. In their previous match, Pakistani batting capitulated against the might of Billy Stanlake (4-8), who recorded Australia’s second-best figures in T20I cricket, and Andrew Tye to fold for 116 in 20 overs. Australia’s batsmen led by skipper Finch (68 off 33 balls) chased it down in a mere 10.5 overs to hand Pakistan an excruciating loss.
