HARARE: Pakistan captain Azhar Ali won the toss and decided to field first in the second one-day international against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club in Harare on Saturday.

Experimenting with new players, Azhar has made two changes in the team's lineup. Opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad and all-rounder Imad Wasim has been replaced by Asad Shafiq and Bilal Asif.

Asif, 30, will be playing his first international match.

On the other hand, Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura has decided to go with the same team that played the first ODI.

Earlier on Thursday, leggie Yasir Shah returned his career-best figures as Pakistan routed Zimbabwe by 131 runs in the first one-dayer.

Chasing a target of 260 after a century stand by Mohammad Rizwan and Imad had rescued the Pakistan innings, Zimbabwe were bowled out for just 128 in 37 overs.

Pakistan lead the three-match series 1-0.

Playing XI

Zimbabwe: Brian Chari, Chamu Chibhabha, Hamilton Masakadza, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza, Elton Chigumbura (captain), Richmond Mutumbami (wkt), Luke Jongwe, Graeme Cremer, Tinashe Panyangara and Johm Nyumbu.

Pakistan: Azhar Ali (captain), Bilal Asif, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfraz Ahmed (wkt), Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Rizwan, Asad Shafiq, Aamer Yamin, Wahab Riaz, Yasir Shah and Mohammad Irfan.
