Pakistan crushed Zimbabwe 5-0 in the ODI series that was played in July 2018. Get the latest Pakistan v Zimbabwe Betting Tips and Predictions for any future matches here.
In what was described as the most one-sided ODI series of all times, Pakistan romped home not just to a 5-0 scoreline but also won all the five matches by resounding margins.
They also nearly got to 400 in one of the ODIs of this series, while getting to two scores of 350+ and had their first double-century by a batsman in ODI cricket.
Earlier, it was not surprising to see Pakistan catapult to the top of the T20I rankings having barely lost anything in recent times. In fact since the end of the previous World T20 that was held in India and where they were knocked out in the first round of the competition, Pakistan have won 19 out of the 22 T20Is they have played.
That is a brilliant statistic because it gives them the best win-loss ratio by some distance and even Afghanistan, who have played most of their matches against lower-ranked sides, have won 15 out of 18 – not quite the same win-loss. The real next-best is India with an 18-8 record.
What’s interesting to see is that since the previous World T20, Zimbabwe have played just five T20Is and lost four of them.
Pakistan v Zimbabwe Betting Tips for 5th ODI:
Most of the Associates like Afghanistan, Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland and even UAE have played more than them and these four matches will come in handy as they look to put their disappointment of not having qualified for the World Cup behind them and begin their 2020 World T20 preparations. They wouldn’t want to miss qualifying for that competition now.
Going into this tri-series, Pakistan and Zimbabwe have played in nine previous T20Is and Pakistan have won all nine of them. There are other teams like Afghanistan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and South Africa against whom Zimbabwe have never won a T20I before today but none of them played as many as nine games either.
What that means is that Pakistan will start off this tri-series as favourites to beat Zimbabwe at the very least and make it to the final. Australia is the other side in this competition.
