PAK vs ZIM Match Prediction

PAK vs ZIM: T20 WORLD CUP 2022

In their second match of the world cup, Pakistan will play Zimbabwe at Perth Stadium. Prior to this, Pakistan played their longtime adversaries, India, in a very close match in which they came in second. They will be anxious to score a couple of points and gain some much-needed momentum as the tournament progresses.

Zimbabwe avoided defeat because the rain gods came to their aid just in time. After posting a score of 79 in 9 overs during a match that was postponed due to weather, they were on the verge of losing. They conceded 51 runs in 3 overs while bowling, however, the game was abandoned due to severe downpours.

PITCH REPORT

Perth’s pitch has some of the fastest pace and bounce in the world. In the early overs, the pace of the pitch allows the bowlers some movement and great carry.

The batters’ ability to defeat the bowlers is not made any simpler by the long boundaries. As a result, bowlers prefer it as a surface since it gives them some traction and limits the hitters. Around 150–160 runs are predicted to be the par score.

PREDICTED PLAYING ELEVEN

Pakistan: Babar Azam (c), Md Rizwan, Shan Masood, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Md Nawaz, Harris Rauf, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Naseem Shah.

Zimbabwe: Craig Ervine(C), Regis Chakabva(wk), Wesley Madhevere, Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Milton Shumba, Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Richard Ngarva, Tendai Chatara, and Blessing Muzarabani.

POWER PLAY SCORES:

Pakistan’s lineups include powerful hitters, and they will try to build on their early-game success by scoring a significant number of runs during the extra innings. As they try to score 50 to 55 runs in the first six overs of the powerplay, Pakistan may lose one or two wickets. On the other hand, Zimbabwe’s powerplay may bring in 35–40 runs.

DEATH OVER SCORES:

The England squad is not concerned with death overs, but both teams have powerful, damaging hitters who can change the game’s direction at any time. Pakistan may score 45 to 50 runs, or maybe more, in the final few overs. The Zimbabwe squad, on the other hand, would aim to score more than 30-35 runs in the last few overs.

PAK vs ZIM: WHO WILL WIN THE MATCH?

On a fast Perth wicket, it would be extremely challenging to match the speed of Shaheen, Naseem, and Harris. Pakistan has defeated Zimbabwe sixteen times in T20I matches compared to Zimbabwe’s one victory, but the two teams have met each other seventeen times.

On paper, Pakistan appears to be more powerful than Zimbabwe, but surprises are still possible. According to our Pakistan vs Zimbabwe match prediction, Pakistan is the favourite to win given their current form, head-to-head record.
