Analysis

Zimbabwe’s 19-run win over Pakistan was their maiden T20I victory against the unpredictable Pakistani side. Zimbabwe were brilliant in the T20Is and they would look to carry that momentum into the Test series as well. The last time they played a Test series was against Afghanistan and they had drawn that series. Sean Williams will be a key member of the squad as he has scored a mountain of runs in the recent past.

Skipper Babar Azam would be happy they could manage to pull off the game but they would be eyeing for a whitewash in the Test series. Azhar Ali has scored 650 runs in the last 9 games for Pakistan and is the backbone of the Pakistani batting line-up. Pakistan had whitewashed South Africa in the 2-Test matches earlier in the year and would be high on confidence. Mohammad Rizwan was adjudged the Player of the Series and he is another vital cog of Pakistan.
