Zimbabwe win toss and elect to bat against Pakistan - ICC World Cup 2011
In a crucial ICC World Cup 2011 encounter, Zimbabwe have won the toss and elected to bat against, at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. This is only the third international match at this venue. The first two matches have been won by the team
