Toss Pakistan elect to bat first v Zimbabwe
On another bitterly cold day in Bulawayo, Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and opted to set a target in the fourth ODI against Zimbabwe. After Pakistan’s crushing win in the third game that wrapped up the series, the visitors go into this one with an unchanged line-up.
Zimbabwe were bowled out for 67 in the previous game, and have responded by making two changes to that side. Opening batsman Chamu Chibhabha has been left out, handing a debut to Tinashe Kamunhukamwe. That pushes Hamilton Masakadza up from number three, with the captain set to open the batting for his side along with the debutant. In addition, Tendai Chatara also warms the bench, and Donald Tiripano comes back in at 7, constituting a rather lengthy tail.
