Harare - Captain Brendan Taylor won the toss and elected to bowl first in the second one-day international on Thursday as Zimbabwe went in search of their first ever series victory over Pakistan.

Having beaten Pakistan for the first time in an ODI since 1998 on Tuesday, Zimbabwe went into the second game of the three-match series with an unchanged side.

Pakistan made one alteration to their line-up, replacing batsman Haris Sohail with left-arm spinner Abdur Rehman as they sought a better balance to their side.

Despite dropping four catches in the field, Zimbabwe won the first one-day international by seven wickets.


Zimbabwe: Brendan Taylor (captain), Hamilton Masakadza, Vusi Sibanda, Timycen Maruma, Sean Williams, Malcolm Waller, Elton Chigumbura, Prosper Utseya, Tinashe Panyangara, Tendai Chatara, Brian Vitori.

Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Hafeez, Umar Amin, Sarfraz Ahmed, Shahid Afridi, Abdur Rehman, Junaid Khan, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Irfan.
