Former captain Ramiz Raja believes that Pakistan should give opportunities to new players in the second Test against Zimbabwe in Harare, starting on May 7.

Pakistan won the first Test in comprehensive fashion, by an innings and 116 runs, to take one-nil lead in the two-match series. 

“New players should be given an opportunity. I’m hopeful that we get to see [Shahnawaz] Dahani in the second Test match and one or two other changes in the batting and bowling department. This is going to be a one-sided series and Pakistan should finish the next match inside three or four days as well,” said Raja while speaking on his official YouTube channel.

He also opened up on the importance of Test match victories for Pakistan.

“Pakistan is considered a medium range team in Test cricket and winning matches, even if it’s against Zimbabwe, will give them confidence and the right headlines will be put up,” he concluded.
