Zimbabwe all-rounder youth Wesley Medhevere believes that the visitors can upset Pakistan during the upcoming series, which begins with the first One-day International (ODI) on Friday.

While speaking during a teleconference, Medhevere admitted that Zimbabwe were up against a strong Pakistan outfit.

"Pakistan is definitely a very strong team at home but we have the ability to upset them. It all depends on that particular day," said Medhevere.

The 20-year-old also warned against writing off Zimbabwe before the start of the series.

“We can beat any team on any given day. We have beaten Pakistan in the past, so it all depends on how things turn out on a particular day. You can’t predict anything before the start of the series or a match,” he said.

“We have faced a challenge and that is to qualify directly to the 2023 World Cup. All are focused to give their best and win matches here. I am sure we have a chance against Pakistan,” he added.

Medhevere is also enjoying his stay in Pakistan despite being in quarantine due to Covid-19 pandemic.

"It is a lovely place as I am here for the first time and I liked what we have seen so far and people are forthcoming. We had a good time during practice sessions while staying in quarantine,” he said.
