ZIM vs PAK: Pakistan Set To Take On Zimbabwe In Opening Test
After the highs and lows of the T20I series against Zimbabwe, the Pakistan cricket team will be back in white overalls when they take on Zimbabwe in the first Test at the Harare Sports Club on Thursday.
The Babar Azam-led side - which last featured in a two-match Test series against South Africa at home in January-February winning both Tests - would like to repeat its performance in the two-Test series against Zimbabwe.
In between the Test series against South Africa and the upcoming matches against Zimbabwe, the visitors have played three bilateral T20I series (two vs South Africa and one against Zimbabwe) and an ODI series against South Africa.
Pakistan has won all four white-ball series and the momentum will be on their side going into the Test series.
Pakistan had slumped to an embarrassing low during their ongoing Zimbabwe tour when they were bundled out for 99 runs chasing 118 on April 23. The one-off defeat helped Zimbabwe level the series 1-1. But the visitors won the final T20I by a big margin to clinch the series 2-1.
