The weather is once more expected to be cold, and the pitch flat. Having put on a flawless display on Wednesday, Pakistan may be tempted to give the same eleven another run-out, especially since they weren’t particularly stretched during a game that ended half an hour before the lunch break. Having made several changes in the third game and seen them backfire spectacularly, Zimbabwe could revert to the relative safety of their XIs from the first two games, where at least some respectability was preserved.
