Zimbabwe and Pakistan are going to be playing against each other in three T20 internationals and two Test matches after that. Pakistan will be visiting Zimbabwe for this series in return for a visit that Zimbabwe had made earlier to Pakistan.
The T20 series is up first and all the matches are going to be played at the Harare Sports Club in Harare.
Pakistan has sent a pretty much full-strength team, a surprising move because this would have been the perfect time to test out some of its bench strength and backup players. Zimbabwe is welcoming back a couple of seniors into its squad but the overall strength of its squad remains quite weak.
Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 2nd T20 2021 is going to be played at the Harare Sports Club, Harare on the 23rd of April 2021.
Brendan Taylor and Craig Ervine are back in the T20 squad for Zimbabwe and that is a very good thing. They both are genuinely good batsmen with a proven record against high-quality opposition.
These two, alongside Sean Williams, are the core of the batting order for Zimbabwe and will need to be at their best against Pakistan. Ryan Burl, Regis Chakabva, and Wesley Madhevere round out an average batting unit at best.
Zimbabwe may be playing in home conditions but it does not come up against bowlers of the quality of Pakistan’s attack very often. Even if they, they certainly do not end up dominating them.
The bowling is very weak and that is the biggest difference between the teams. Donald Tripano, Blessing Muzarabni, and all-rounders like Sean Williams don’t really come into the match with an intention to take wickets. Stopping runs is their main objective and that is never a successful tactic at this level of the game.

Pakistan is the overwhelming favorite in this series. It has just defeated South Africa 3-1 with much the same squad and will no doubt be looking to dominate Zimbabwe as well. Babar Azam made an amazing 122 in the previous inning he played and is one of the best batsmen in the world in this format.
Mohammad Rizwan is able to score runs with a fantastic amount of consistency in the T20 format and that makes the top order very solid. With Fakhar Zaman also in good form at number three, Mohammad Hafeez at 4, and Haider Ali at 5, Pakistan should have more than enough firepower to win.
The bowling attack for Pakistan is world-class and just in another league when compared to Zimbabwe. Pakistan can pick any of its squad members who are bowlers and not worry. Zahid Mahmood is the only new name in the squad in place of Shadab Khan and he should get a few chances in this series as well.
Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain, Hasan Ali, and Haris Rauf will all be licking their lips in anticipation of going up against a weak Zimbabwe team. This is the time to pad your stats!

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. The trend is to chase in T20 internationals but we don’t really think that is something that will have much effect in this match.

No rain has been forecast in Harare on match day and so we should have an uninterrupted match to enjoy. As far as the pitch goes, Harare has a slow surface that is very flat. It will offer nothing to the bowlers and once the batsmen get set, they will be able to score freely.
A score of around 180 has to be seen as par batting first.
There is nothing to suggest that Zimbabwe is going to be able to pull off an upset in this match. We suggest you back Pakistan to win even though the return is not going to be very lucrative.
Bet on Pakistan to win.
