Pakistan v Zimbabwe 1st ODI – Team News

Pakistan will be captained by Babar Azam for the first time in an ODI. This will be his first time leading the team in this particular format since being handed the role.

There is no place in Pakistan’s 22 man squad for experienced trio Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Amir.

Shadab Khan will be vice-captain for both this and the T20I series that follows.

There is a first call-up for 20-year-old batsman Abdullah Shafique, who has impressed or Central Punjab in the recent National T20 Cup.

A young-looking squad should also mean more time for the likes of Haider Ali and Khushdil Shah.

Mohammad Rizwan continues as the first-choice wicketkeeper, with Rohail Nazir chosen as his back-up.

Zimbabwe have named Chamu Chibhabha as captain in Pakistan. Previous skipper Sean Williams remains in the squad though.

Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza and Elton Chigumbura are all included. There is also a return for fast bowler Blessing Muzarabani.

Zimbabwe have handed debut call-ups to all-rounders Faraz Akram and Milton Shumba but not included Tarisai Musakanda or Kyle Jarvis.
