Final scorecard

Zimbabwe 107 all-out - Pakistan win by 201 runs

Pakistan 308/7 in 50 overs - Imam-ul-Haq 128

Various circumstances have forced Zimbabwe to go into this series with a weakened squad. Zimbabwe has brought in three players who yet to make their debuts in ODI [VIDEO]. Hamilton Masakadza will be leading the ODI team.

Babar Azam stated to Cricinfo that he had completely healed from the arm injury suffered during the test series in England and will be playing this match.

Imam-ul-Haq, who wasn't the part of the T20I squad, is there in the ODI squad and awaited to associate with Fakhar Zamaan as the opening batsman.

Bulawayo's tracks are usually flatter than Harare's, but according to ESPNcricinfo.com, the pitch has got slower and lower over the previous few years, so taking the matter might prove critical for batsmen.

The teams will be greeted by cold weather in the morning, with the temperature expected to reach as high as 21 degree Celsius through the day.
