ZIM vs PAK 3rd T20: Top 5 Players to watch out for in series decider
Babar Azam (Pakistan): Pakistan captain Babar Azam needs no introduction. He has been a red-hot form all three formats and played a lone battle in the 2nd T20 against Zimbabwe. Pakistan will depend on his batting prowess again on a slow Harare pitch.
Mohammad Rizwan (Pakistan): Pakistan’s wicket-keeper batsman has also been in fine form. While he departed cheaply in the 2nd T20, his 61-ball 82 in the first will be remembered for some time. If his willow does the talking again, it will be difficult for Zimbabwe bowlers to contain him.
Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan): Fakhar Zaman hasn’t been in his form in Zimbabwe like he was against South Africa. But he is still the man to watch out for.
Luke Jongwe (Zimbabwe): He was Zimbabwe’s star bowler and wrecker-in-chief dismantling Pakistan’s famed batting line-up in the 2nd T20. His 4/18 won Zimbabwe the match and will be the bowler to watch out for.
Ryan Burl (Zimbabwe): The Zimbabwe all-rounder returned with 2/21 in the 2nd T20 and bowled well without any returns in the 1st match. While he is yet to shine with the bat, he will one of the players who can change a match with his all-round show.
