Rizwan too had a wonderful series and scored 147 runs in 4 games. He has been in top form for a long time now and is expected to come god in this series as well.

 Usman Qadir: 
Zimbabwe batsmen might fail to read the variations of Usman Qadir who can be a trump card for Pakistan.

He is a very capable batsmen in this format of the game. He has scored 502 runs at an average of 31 for Zimbabwe. He will be a key batsman for the hosts.

Sean Williams is another top class all rounder that is expected to come good. He has played few top class knocks in this format of the game and can be very handy with his off spin as well.

 ‍Team Info: 

PAK –
– Pakistan won the T20 series against South Africa in South Africa which is a great achievement for them. Team is high on confidence and can give chances to some young players to test the bench strength this series.
– Captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan will open the Innings. Both are forming one of the best opening pairs in T20 cricket recently. Both averaged 50+ against SA last series with babar going on the score his maiden T20I to.
– Fakhar Zaman will bat at 1 down. Fakhar has moved down to 1 down position from last series and it has worked for the team. He scored 94 runs in 3 games where he got some chance of Batting in last Series.
– Mohammad Hafeez will bat next. Hafeez is nothing short of any experience in world cricket, also has a very good SR recently.
– Haider Ali will bat in middle followed by M Nawaz and Faheem Ashraf. 
– Usman Qadir and Mohammad Nawaz will be the spin option for Pakistan. Mohammad Hafeez can assist them.
– Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali and Faheem Ashraf will be the pace attack of Pakistan.
ZIM –
– Zimbabwe were clean swept by Afghanistan last series in UAE by big margins. Zimbabwe will however feel something good after the return of Brendon Taylor and Craig Ervine in the team.
– Sikander Raza has been inured and ruled out of the entire series.
The hosts have also named three fresh faces in the squad from the domestic performances , Tadiwanashe Marumani (batsman), Tanaka Chivanga (pacer) and Tapiwa Mufudza (off-spinner).
– Brendon Taylor and T Kamunhukamwe will open for Zimbabwe. Taylor is one of the best batsman ever for Zimbabwe Cricket and os coming from a good domestic t20 competition. Kamunhukamwe is a attacking batsman but can’t say against Pakistan pace attack.
– Craig Ervine will bat 1 down. Ervine is one of the most consistent Batsman in the team and will play an important role in team’s success this series.
– Sean Williams and Wesley Madhevere will bat in middle and both with contribute through both as well.
– Regis Chakabva will bat next followed by Ryan Burl and Donald Tiripano. All 3 can play some attacking Cricket especially Chakabva who recently played a match winning knock of 59 of just 29 balls against the Rhinos.
