Green shirts will be looking for another win against Zimbabwe in the second Twenty20 match at Harare Sports Club.
In the first T20 match, Zimbabwe had put Pakistan in a tough situation. Green shirts won with a narrow margin of 11 runs.
Babar Azam, in his post-match media talk, acknowledged that the team had to work hard for their victory against Zimbabwe.
“Had someone stayed a little longer with Mohammad Rizwan, we might have set a better target for the opponents,” said Azam.
On the other hand, Zimbabwe captain Sean Williams had acknowledged that their fielding let them down.
“It is inexcusable the number of catches we dropped which ultimately cost us the game. We need to improve our fielding. We will go back to the drawing board and improve better in the next game,” Willams had stated.
