END OF OVER:
20 | 14 Runs | ZIM: 136/7

5.15 pm Zimbabwe will rue this batting failure. They were in with a real chance after restricting Pakistan to 141 but they just lost it between overs 5 and 10 of the chase. In the end, they fell only five runs short.

Pakistan have won the Twenty20 series 2-0. They have won everything on this tour of Zimbabwe. Waqar Younis has a successful final series as Pakistan coach.

"Waqar should have told everyone that he was retiring after the world cup," says Danish.

Shafaqat: "Thanks indeed Waqar. I know not many would give you credit for anything but we all know the circumstances in which you have coached the team. We wish you complete health and a wonderful future. Its painful to see a controversial end to your coaching stint, very much similar to that of your playing career. Hats off sir!!!"

I'll have the action from the presentation for you in a bit ...

The Pakistan team is giving Waqar Younis an award, and there's also something from the PCB.

Misbah: "We really thank Waqar. The way he worked with everybody. He did a wonderful job, the way he came in at a difficult time. He had good inputs. A lot of youngsters came in. I'm going to miss him ...

"I'm really satisfied with the way the team played. All the players got a fair chance and everybody performed. It's been a good tour for us. The Sri Lanka series means a lot for us, we're going to prepare well and play well against them."

The Man of the Match is Mohammad Hafeez, for his half-century and three wickets. "It was a great tour for me. Thanks to the team, they supported me, our coach Waqar Younis, I'll miss him."

Morfi: "Relax guys! I am sure Waqar will (hopefully) return after a few years as coach - Miandad did ... and besides, Wicky bhai is only 40 yet. Thanks, nevertheless, Waqar - job well done!!"

That's all we've got for you from this series. Pakistan will soon travel to the UAE to play Sri Lanka, and Zimbabwe will prepare to host New Zealand. Thank you for all your emails. It's been fun. Cheers.

Sohail Khan to Taibu, no run, what an anticlimax that is. Sohail bowled a fast full toss a little more than a foot outside off stump. Taibu had backed away towards leg and eventually didn't play a shot. He was a bit too far away from the ball

Well, can Taibu do a Miandad? Six to win it ...

Sohail Khan to Taibu, 2 runs, short ball and Taibu pulls in the air towards deep square leg, there's a fielder in the deep but the ball falls short of him. Taibu comes back for the second

Sohail Khan to Taibu, 2 runs, Taibu backs away to hit over cover but ends up slicing a short ball towards third man. Electric running once again and Taibu has the strike

Mudassir: "Can Taibu do a "Mike Hussey vs Saeed Ajmal" in the last over.. .??" Pakistan are making lots of fielding changes.

Sohail Khan to Taibu, 2 runs, full and straight, Taibu drives down the ground and Utseya hares back for the second

Sohail Khan to Taibu, 2 runs, Taibu almost did it! It was the short ball, a little slower, and Taibu heaved it into the gap between deep midwicket and long-on. The fielder from long-on ran to his right and saved two runs

Another boundary will spice things up.

Sohail Khan to Taibu, SIX runs, what a shot this is, Taibu sits on the back foot, gets under a length ball and lofts it high and far over long-on. He hit that from in his crease, with front leg out of the way

Sohail Khan will bowl the final over.
