Harare - Mohammad Hafeez and Mohammad Irfan returned to the Pakistan line-up as the tourists looked to sweep the two-match Twenty20 international series against Zimbabwe with another victory on Tuesday.

The pair sat out Sunday's 13-run victory at Harare Sports Club, but replaced Mukhtar Ahmed and Wahab Riaz as Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first once again.

Hafeez had been doubtful for the brief tour of Zimbabwe, which also comprises three one-day internationals, but overcame a hand injury in time to travel with the squad.

After a disciplined performance that saw them compete with Pakistan in Sunday's series opener, Zimbabwe fielded an unchanged team for the second game.


Chamu Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza Butt, Elton Chigumbura (captain), Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Luke Jongwe, Graeme Cremer, Prosper Utseya, Tinashe Panyangara.


Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal, Sohaib Maqsood, Shahid Afridi (captain), Imad Wasim, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Sohail Tanvir, Imran Khan, Mohammad Irfan.
