Zimbabwe’s past captain Grant Flower is now the batting coach of Pakistan! And it’s going to help the visitors a lot in getting some inside information about the hosts players.

Weather and pitch conditions:
Looks like the pitch has hardened a bit making it much easier to score runs after New Zealand’s recent tour.
There will be some support and assistance from the pitch to the spinners.
