THE NEWS, HARARE, 10th SEPTEMBER 2013: Returning Zimbabwe captain Brendon Taylor won the toss and elected to bat first in the second and final Test match at the Harare Sports Club.
In the post toss interview Taylor said he did not want to bat last on a wicket which has been prepared in only three days.
Pakistan captain was of the view that the toss did not matter much, and he had no problems batting last as Zimbabwe did not have a spinner who could exploit the conditions.
Zimbabwe have made 2 changes to the side that lost the 1st Test. Brian Vitori comes in for Shingi Mazakadza and the unlucky Sikander Raza makes way for the captain despite a having a good first Test.
Pakistan will go in the Test match unchanged.
