Zimbabwe will face Pakistan on a series decider 2nd ODI

The second ODI between Zimbabwe and Pakistan which will take place on June 29 at the Harare Sports Club is going to be an exciting one. The host nation is now leading the three-match ODI series after winning the first ODI by 7 wickets with 10 balls left at hand. Now, Zimbabwe are very much interested to continue their winning streak and make a record of bilateral series win against a strong opponent since they defeated New Zealand 2-1 in 2001.
Pakistan cricket which has been put under pressure after losing the opening ODI match, will try their best to win the second ODI and level the three-match series, and at the same time, keep themselves alive in the series. The defeat in the first ODI came as a shock for the touring side after they beat Zimbabwe in the two T20 international matches. It can be said that it is a “do or die” match for Pakistan.
Fans of both teams will be eagerly waiting to see who will win the match. Zimbabwe cricket team has been rejuvenated after getting their first victory against Pakistan in 15 years. So, undoubtedly Pakistan cricket team will have to face a touch challenge from them and it is certainly going to be a competitive one.
If Zimbabwe gives their full effort in all departments as they did in the first ODI then nothing can stop them from snatching the ODI series with a match in hand. Pakistan will have to respond well in their attempt to come back to winning track.
