Pakistan and Zimbabwe are not having a great start to the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, and they’re both hoping a victory over the other will jump-start them to a run. Between the two of them, they’ve played four matches and have on victory. Now, one will get another and you can watch it streaming live online.
Zimbabwe has played in three matches and racked up a record of 1-2 so far. They lost their opening match to South Africa by 62 runs, but they bounced back and defeated UAE by four wickets in their second. West Indies dealt them their second loss in Match 15 by 73 runs.
As for Pakistan, they are still without a victory and in desperate need of one. India defeated them by 76 runs in their first match, but then West Indies destroyed them by 150 runs in Match 10.
It’s already been revealed by Zee News that Pakistan batsman Younis Khan is set to retire after the Cricket World Cup. Not only does the team want to win for their country and themselves, but they want Khan to go out on a good note.
“I will retire from ODI cricket after 2015 World Cup. Will continue to play Test cricket.”
Khan has been on the national team for 263 ODIs during his 15-year career. He has scored 7203 runs at an average of 31.31 so his talent will be missed, but it’s not unexpected. Many former Pakistani players have called for him to retirement after numerous poor outings in the ODI format.
None the less, Pakistan has him now and hope Khan will help them get a victory over Zimbabwe as it is so badly needed. On the other hand, Zimbabwe needs a win just as bad so expect a tough match at The Gabba.
The match between Pakistan vs. Zimbabwe is scheduled to begin at 13:30 local time (03:30 GMT) on Sunday, March 1, at the The Gabba in Brisbane, Australia.
ESPN will begin online streaming at 10 p.m. E.S.T. on Saturday February 28, but that is just one option to watch Pakistan vs. Zimbabwe live. ESPN does charge a fee to watch all of the matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, so be aware of that.
