The third and final game in the three match ODI series between Zimbabwe and Pakistan will be played on May 31, 2015 at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
Pakistan have already triumphed in the series, as they won both the first and second ODI in style. Zimbabwe will be trying to taste their first win in this series, while the hosts will be aiming for a complete whitewash.
Pakistan is winning a series after seventeen months, and these wins against the minnows have raised their overall morale to a great extend.
Earlier, tensions were there regarding the practicality of this match, as a suicide blast killed two people outside the Gaddafi Stadium. Information minister Pervez Rashid told that the series will go as planned, and now, there are no security concerns in and around the ground.
Zimbabwe was quite competitive in both the matches. In the first match, they succeeded in putting up a target above 300, and in the second match they scored 268 runs.
The visitors need to enhance the strength of their bowling, and doing that may create wonders for them in this last match.

Pakistan on the other hand is quite happy with their overall performance. Former Captain Shoaib Malik has shown his class in both the matches, and the veteran is literally celebrating his comeback to the team after a hiatus of two years.
