27 January 2008
Multan Cricket Stadium (Day/Night match)


Squads:
Pakistan: Shoaib Malik (captain), Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Misbah-ul-Haq, Salman Butt, Nasir Jamshed, Khalid Latif, Shahid Afridi, Fawad Alam, Kamran Akmal, Sohail Khan, Rao Iftikhar, Sohail Tanvir, Kamran Hussain and Yasir Arafat.
Zimbabwe: Prosper Utseya (captain), Gary Brent, Chamunorwa Chibhabha, Elton Chigumbura, Keith Dabengwa, Timycen Maruma, Hamilton Masakadza, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Christopher Mpofu, Tawanda Mupariwa, Raymond Price, Vusimuzi Sibanda, Tatenda Taibu, Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams.

Two changes in the Pakistan side - Sohail Khan and wicketkeeper-batsman Khalid Latif (both uncapped) are in for the match. Samiullah Niazi and Sarfraz Ahmed have been dropped to make way for them.

For Zimbabwe, Prosper Utseya is doubtful (hamstring injury).

Dabengwa has had a bit of a run ( Undeservedly) in the ODI side. If the selectors have picked Maruma as a specialist spinner why not give him a try and see what he's like on these sub-continent pitches

The problem i have with the zimbabwe front-line attack at the moment is that they are all containement bowlers with perhaps the exeption of Mpofu. Mupariwa/Brent/Chibhabha all bowl a nice little length but with little bite or venom. On pakistan wickets it just sits up to be hit...... Please next series give rainsford or mahwire a go selectors

But with Zimbabwe selectors, logic goes out the window :)
Zimbabwe have gone with three changes: Captain Prosper Utseya misses out due to the ankle injury and so does Matsikenyeri and Williams. Their replacements are : Mupariwa, Maruma and Dabengwa with Mazakadza set to lead the team.
Williams out, Dabengwa in... huh?

Good to see that the selectors have finally decided to drop Matsikenyeri. ;) I think they should have given Maruma a go though. Hi BRMTayloradmin and Maehara. Good to see you guys online.
