Harare: Tight security and bad weather greeted Zimbabwe, preparing for the first Test vs Pakistan on Saturday at the Harare Sports Club (HSC). At least 30 guards waited in intermittent showers that were forecast to continue.
Zimbabwe captain Alistair Campbell expected Pakistan, who are smarting from a run of poor results including a 0-3 drubbing in a Test series against Australia, to play aggressive cricket in the two match series.
“They’re a strange side,” Campbell said of the visitors. “When they’re down they’re really down, but when they’re in a corner they come out all guns blazing.
“They are going to want to put in a big performance against us.” (Reuters)
