This will be the only second match for Zimbabwe since they've been re-promoted to test playing nation after almost a decade's break..
Pakistan haven't had many games in recent times, cooling their heals since West Indies tour early May after the world cup but they'll expect themselves to do well on this Zimbabwean tour although home team have surely developed a formidable bowling line-up in recent times. Here's how the schedule has been layed down :-
Pakistan start first test match against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo in capital city Harare from 1st September while the first ODI will be played at the same venue from 8th of the same month. Caravan then moves to near by Harare sports club where 2nd and 3rd one day international are to be played as well as two twenty20 internationals.
This is not a long tough for Pakistan team who then will be moving to Sri Lanka for a proposed series that was to be held in their backyard.
