Pakistan will be looking to make a strong comeback when they face Zimbabwe in the 24th match of the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup played at Perth Stadium on Thursday.

In the previous match, Pakistan suffered defeat at the hands of India. Skipper Babar Azam will be hoping that the side can learn from their mistakes and put in a clinical performance against Zimbabwe.

On the other hand, Zimbabwe’s opening match against South Africa was washed out due to heavy downpours. Skipper Craig Ervine will be hoping that the side can put in an improved batting performance against Pakistan.

Both teams have faced off 17 times in the history of the T20 Format where Pakistan have a clear advantage with 16 wins compared to the Zimbabwe’s one victory, which came last year at Harare Sports Club.
