Team News

Zimbabwe made a few unnecessary changes in the third ODI, but these changes couldn't alter the fortunes of the side. In fact, Zimbabwe got all out for a mere 67 runs as the match lasted for just 35 overs.

According to Cricbuzz, Zimbabwe is expected to go back to their XI from the first two matches of the series. Captain Hamilton Masakadza's form has also come under the scanner, but in this side, there hasn't been anyone who has stepped up and done their job.

Pakistan has no issues with their performance at all.

Ever since the start of this tour, Pakistan has ticked all boxes perfectly. Their batting has been solid with the minimum efforts required from the middle and lower order, as their top order has done the bulk of batting this series.

Looking at their side's recent success with the ball, it is highly unlikely that Pakistan will make any changes to their side for the fourth ODI.

Having said that, Pakistan has won the series already and with two matches to go, the team management might like to experiment with the players on the bench.

The Bulawayo pitch has offered good assistance to the Pakistani seamers, but their Zimbabwean counterparts haven't been able to replicate their success. Going into this fourth match it is expected that the pitch will be similar to one in the previous match.

The weather updates of Bulawayo suggests that it will be a cold day as the temperatures are not expected to cross 20 degree Celsius.
