Let us take an eye on the T201s and see what the Times of India has to say. Pakistan had replaced Shadab Khan with Mazid Mamood due to his toe injury for the T201 series against Zimbabwe and South Africa. Shadab got the injury in his second ODI against South Africa. Fakhar Zaman has also got the chance for the series against Zimbabwe and South Africa. Let us see if Pakistan makes a victory against Zimbabwe in the entire series of the T201s.
The pitch of the battlefield (stadium):
According to SportsF1.com, a total of 134 ODIs and 25 T201s have been played in the stadium.

This time, Pakistan is the first to bat, so let us see if the predictions work here.
