Zimbabwe has elected to bat first in the third and final ODI in Rawalpindi. The series has gone, but World Cup Super League points are very much up for grabs, and to that end, Chamu Chibhabha’s side will look to set a target on what appears another surface well suited for the batsmen. They make just the one change, with Carl Mumba dropping out, allowing the more experienced Donald Tiripano to take his place.
Pakistan, chasing a ninth successive win, hand a debut to big-hitting batsman Khushdil Shah, while Fakhar Zaman replaces Abid Ali in an altogether more attacking-looking side. Haris Rauf, drops out, allowing Mohammad Hasnain to play his first game of the series, while Haider Ali keeps his place in the side.
There remains no place in the team for Haris Sohail, who top-scored with 71 in the only ODI he played. Imad Wasim and Faheem Ashraf both drop out, too, while Wahab Riaz returns to the starting eleven.
