Pakistan have made three changes to their squad for the third one-day international (ODI) against Zimbabwe, which is scheduled to be played on November 3 in Rawalpindi.

Opener Abid Ali, all-rounder Imam Wasim and pacer Haris Rauf have been replaced by rookie batsman Abdullah Shafique, spinner Zafar Gohar and fast-bowler Mohammad Hasnain.

“We will decided the playing XI tomorrow after looking at the pitch,” said Pakistan’s head coach-cum-chief selector Misbahul Haq.

“We played positive cricket in the previous game which was good to see,” he added.

Spinner Iftikhar Ahmed grabbed a maiden five-wicket haul while Babar Azam notched a half-century as Pakistan thumped Zimbabwe by six wickets to win the second one-day international in Rawalpindi on Sunday.

The win gave Pakistan an unassailable 2-0 lead after they won the first game by 26 runs on Friday.

The two teams will also play three Twenty20 internationals on November 7, 8 and 10, also in Rawalpindi.
