Pakistan will start their one-day global series against Zimbabwe as clear favourites, but captain Sarfraz Ahmed expects the hosts to be challenging opponents in their home conditions as their tour moves to Bulawayo for five games in the longer of cricket s two short formats. He was also entrusted with bowling the final over against Scotland, where he snared Ben Wheal as Zimbabwe secured a crucial tie. We won't be in the World Cup, but it is an opportunity to start building up for the guys that will be at the next World Cup. Kyle Jarvis hasn't played since sustaining a thumb injury in the first T20I, while star batsman Solomon Mire has been ruled out with a gluteal tear.

Pakistan have defeated Zimbabwe by 201 runs in the first ODI of the five-match series at Bulawayo on Friday. Liam Roche, Tinashe Kamunhukamwe and Ryan Murray are three uncapped players in the 16-member line-up, led by Hamilton Masakadza.

The engine was ripped from a Vantage S, and the exhaust tips are definitely not the same set that came on the auto when new. A removable steering wheel makes the cut too, and sits in front of an instrument binnacle lifted from the Vantage.


Hamilton Masakadza (Zimbabwe): Leading a side that has key players missing will be no easy task for Masakadza, but he will have to make do with what he has. I think we could have got more runs in the end but there was overcast conditions. However, the pitch has got slower and lower over the past few years, so forcing the issue might prove risky for batsmen. The opening partner of Imam, Fakhar lifted a half century; approaching 70 deliveries, Zaman hit 60 runs with the help of 7 boundaries.
