Pakistan is full of experienced and young players in the t20 format. The batting order of this team is also strong and some well-known hitters of the t20 format are part of the squad of this team. The pace of Shaheen, Naseem and Harris would be really difficult to counter on a pacy Perth wicket. Pakistan have faced Zimbabwe seventeen times in T20I and the Pakistanis have got the better of their opponents in sixteen games, whereas Zimbabwe have got the better of their opponents only once. Pakistan look stronger on paper as compared to Zimbabwe, but yeah, be ready for upsets. Overall we are backing Pakistan to get the victory. Considering the team combination, Pakistan is expected to win this match.
