Zimbabwe in Pakistan ODI Series - 4th ODI

Pakistan v Zimbabwe

Pakistan won by 7 wickets (with 18 balls remaining)

1.1

Kamran Hussain to Masakadza, no run, 120.7kmph and in the zone outside off stump, left alone. One slip for Kamran Hussain.

1.2

Kamran Hussain to Masakadza, 2 runs, first runs. A touch short in length and he went back to punch it through cover point for couple of runs.

1.3

Kamran Hussain to Masakadza, no run, just outside off, on a good length, hint of shape in and he leans forward to push it cautiously to the off side.

1.4

Kamran Hussain to Masakadza, no run, well outside off and Zimbabwe's captain doesn't bother offering a stroke

1.5

Kamran Hussain to Masakadza, no run, 111.8kmph length delivery on the off stump, punched back but not much power and the bowler stops on his follow through

1.6

Kamran Hussain to Masakadza, no run, 122 kmph, angling away from the batsman who steers it to backward point

Zimbabwe 2/0   H Masakadza 2* (6b)

2.3

Sohail Tanvir to Masakadza, no run, in the channel outside off but Sibanda is not interested in the programming and shoulders his arms

2.4

Sohail Tanvir to Masakadza, 1 wide, way way outside off and its a wide.

2.4

Sohail Tanvir to Masakadza, no run, beaten on the drive as the ball veers away at the last minute

2.5

Sohail Tanvir to Masakadza, 1 wide, this time a wide down the leg side

2.5

Sohail Tanvir to Masakadza, no run, huge shout for lbw. 129.9 kmph, it landed on a length, just outside leg stump - hence can't be given lbw - and struck him in front of the stumps

2.6

Sohail Tanvir to Masakadza, no run, fullish, driven to mid-off

Zimbabwe 7/0   H Masakadza 2* (10b)

5.1

Kamran Hussain to Masakadza, OUT, Kamran Hussain has done it again! He might not have that much pace but has that lovely ability to bring the ball back in to the right-handers. This one curved in from the middle stump line and Zimbabwe's stand-in captain was caught in front of the stumps. It hit him just above the knee roll and the batsman was on the front foot but it looked out, if you know what I mean.

H Masakadza lbw b Kamran Hussain 2 (28m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

Zimbabwe 12/2   H Masakadza 2 (11b)
