This is true that Pakistan is now on 5th number rank in ICC Test match ranking which is a good thing. Test cricket is might the format where Pakistan’s progress is most distinguishable.
There is durability about the side which is required in the other stats, with the results starting to show something of again of late.
Capabilities against Zimbabwe may not satisfy the critics.
But remain important due to an upset would undo much of the good work of recent sometimes. Now something that should be front and centre across the guest’s minds especially after the last time.
when Pakistan played a series in Zimbabwe at Harare stadium. Because Zimbabwe has only 1 cricket ground that is only Harare.
So if you compare the Pakistani cricket team with the Zimbabwe cricket team.
you will a fine result without any resistance that Pakistan is a much better team than Zimbabwe. So Pakistan wins the 1st test match and they submit to chasing to 24 runs but in vain in the 2nd in 2013.
They will be trying to sure this series to do not follow the same format, especially after an upsetting T20I series. where they scratch to 2 victories easily by a mortifying beat in which they were bowled out by 99 runs.
So I think Pakistan can now easily win from Zimbabwe by a huge margin and try harder to maintain our ranking high until on top.
This is the fact that in cricket the record of Zimbabwe was not good and till now not good enough. So Zimbabwe is seriously hampered this time around by the loss of many expert middle-order batsmen due to different reasons.
The batsman did put up some struggle in the 1st test match although not nearly enough. Roy Kaia and Miltons Sumba had a vital 59 runs with a 5th wicket stand after Zimbabwe find themselves in difficult early.
And a much better opening stand between Kavin Kasoza and Tarisa Musakenda shows the new ball in the 2nd innings. The bowlers took wickets at continuous interim to stop Pakistan away so far.
So Zimbabwe should improve all deficiencies if they get on the top ranking.
Pakistan has many talented cricketers who are waiting for our chance. Now Pakistan put a big seat and is in a position to handle another debut after Sajid Khan played his 1st match in the previous Test match with Tabish Khan that is also proved beneficial.
Faheem Ashraf will take a rest and relieve the side of a player. who provides the best chance of a balance between batsmen and bowlers, especially with his runs low down.
But every execution here will matter for the new Test series and Pakistan’s next arrangements are in the West Indies after 2 months. And individual executions here will go a long way towards preferences.
Then, Imran Butt and Abid Ali both openers were on the dizzy ground but in the Test opening look to have bought them some time, to shot well and hit well till the best performance.
Because opening partnership always gains much importance to all over the team.
