The Zimbabwe cricket team has shifted base to Bulawayo for a one-day series (ODI) against visiting Pakistan.

The Chevrons will be looking to put behind the disappointment of losing all their encounters in the T-20 tri-series in Harare as focus shifts to the one-day arena.

In the T-20 series Zimbabwe showed glimpses of competitiveness and with a one-day series to look forward to the Chevron’s interim head coach Lalchand Rajput will be hoping his charges cause some upsets against Pakistan.

Having had an opportunity to assess his team in the T-20 format, Rajput is bullish ahead of the ODI series against Pakistan.

“The boys showed that they compete against the top sides in the T-20 series as was seen by how they pushed Pakistan to the wire. Zimbabwean fans just have to be a little bit patient but I am positive ahead of the one day series as the boys have shown that they can perform,” he said.

Solomon Mire was among the stand out performers for Zimbabwe in the T-20 tri-series and the top order batsman will be a key player in the absence of Brendan Taylor, Craig Ervine and Sikander Razza.

The first ODI between Zimbabwe and Pakistan is slated for Queens Sports Club on Friday.

The 5 one day series ends on the 22nd of this month.
