World T20 Series 2022

Super 12, Group 2, Match 24- PAK vs ZIM

Preview 

Pakistan will face Zimbabwe in the 24th match of the World T20 Series 2022. Pakistan is coming off a loss to India, while Zimbabwe was beaten by South Africa in Hobart due to rain.

Pakistan's bowlers could not have asked for a better site for their encounter against Zimbabwe than Perth. Perth has Australia's quickest and most bouncy pitch. Bowlers such as Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah, and Haris Rauf will thrive on this surface. Pakistani pacers would be eager to put on a decent show against Zimbabwe after leaking runs against India.

The African batters struggled to keep up with South Africa's pace assault. The team's reliance on Sikandar Raza and Sean Williams isn't helping matters. Wesley Madhevere showed some promise versus South Africa. Zimbabwe's batters must put up a fight against Pakistan.

Pitch and Weather Report

The Perth pitch will greatly benefit quick bowlers. It will be critical to hit good lengths here. Batters will enjoy the bounce, but the odd balls may end up in the rough. The par score is 160.

The weather forecast in Perth is predicting some clouds around on match day and the weather forecast is also predicting some chances of rain but we are hoping for a full and uninterrupted match.

Hot Fantasy Picks

(i) Wicket Keepers

Mohammad Rizwan- Rizwan missed out in the last game but is still the number one ranked T20I batter in world cricket. He averages 51.33 with over 2464 runs under his belt. 

(ii) Batters

Babar Azam- He alongside Rizwan will have the onus to provide his side a flying start. The opening batter is an attractive stroke maker who plays tremendously well under pressure. 

Shan Masood- The southpaw made a well compiled fifty in the last game. We expect the flamboyant batter to continue his good show. 

(iii) All Rounders 

Sikandar Raza- Raza in recent times has emerged as one of the finest all rounders in white ball cricket. He is an attacking batter up the order, a part time slow bowler and an excellent fieldsman. He is currently the top run scorer in the competition

Sean Williams: Williams has been in the Zimbabwe T20 setup for quite some time now. Williams is recognised for his prowess as a quality batting all rounder. 

(iv) Bowlers 

Haris Rauf- The Pakistani speedster ripped through India’s top order in the last game. Despite failing to close out in the last game, we believe Rauf to hold the key for his side on Thursday. 

Naseem Shah- His menacing pace makes him a valuable asset. The Perth wicket will suit the young pacer and we expect him to wreak havoc on Thursday. 

 

Match Prediction 

We predict Pakistan to win this match and open their account in the competition.
