Pakistan v Zimbabwe 2020 – ODI Preview, Latest Odds and Predictions
Pakistan could use this series as a chance to give more minutes to some of their developing talent, as well as working on a few new combinations.
That said, they should still have far too much for Zimbabwe, especially over the three matches.
They are priced at 1.01 with bet365 to secure a series success. Zimbabwe can be backed at 17.0 to cause a big upset.
However, despite them being a short price in the overall win market, there are always other odds to look at with the best INR betting sites.
Back the White-wash to Boost the Odds
While Pakistan are 1.01 with bet365 to win the series, they can be backed at 1.2 to claim a 3-0 success.
This would be the better play for those looking to boost the odds should Pakistan dominate as predicted.
A 2-1 win for Pakistan is priced at 5.0 with the same firm, but even that could be a tough ask for the tourists.
Babar to Enjoy First ODIs as Captain
This series will be the first time that Babar Azam has captained Pakistan in ODIs.
While the likes of Haider Ali and Mohammed Hafeez can shine, backing Babar to come out as his side’s top series run-scorer looks a solid selection.
He can be backed at 3.0 with bet365 to lead with the bat as well as his captaincy.
Sikandar Raza a Value Pick for Zimbabwe
Pakistan-born Zimbabwe international Sikandar Raza looks a value play to be his team’s top series run-scorer.
Raza knows the conditions well after featuring in the PSL in the past but was also another who impressed in those last ODIs against Bangladesh.
He hit back-to-back half-centuries in the last two ODIs and can carry that forward here. Zimbabwe may be tempted to push him higher up the order too.
He can be backed at 4.5 with bet365 to be Zimbabwe’s top series batsman
