Zimbabwe take on Pakistan in match 24 of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Perth on October 27. It is the third match of the day with South Africa playing Bangladesh first in Sydney followed by India taking on the Netherlands also in Sydney. The PAK vs ZIM match starts at 4.30 pm IST which is 7 pm local time.

Pakistan and Zimbabwe have played 17 T20Is against each other with the Men in Green winning 16 games while the African nation just one. This game is an opportunity for The Men in Green to boost their net run-rate after their loss against Zimbabwe.

Rain saved Zimbabwe from losing the game against South Africa from a precarious position. Tactically they are yet to lose a game in the Super 12s but had there been a full game, they would have lost the contest. The African nation needs to play its best cricket against a side that has had the wood over them in T20Is. 

In the rain-curtailed game, Zimbabwe scored only 79 in their 9 overs. Their batters have to put up a much better performance against Pakistan and need to back their bowlers. In this article, we take a look at their probable playing XI against the Men in Green.
