Bulawayo - Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and decided to bat first in the fourth one-day international against Zimbabwe on Friday.

Pakistan have dominated the ODI series, bowling Zimbabwe out for 67 on Wednesday to go 3-0 up. With the series secured, Pakistan had the opportunity to experiment with their playing XI, but opted to go unchanged into the fourth match.

There were two changes for the Zimbabweans, with Chamu Chibhabha and Prince Masvaure swapped for seamer Donald Tiripano and top order batsman Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, who will be making his international debut.
