Zimbabwe v Pakistan, 2nd T20I, Harare September 18, 2011

Hafeez sets up another Pakistan win

54

Pakistan 141 for 7 (Hafeez 51, Jarvis 3-14) v Zimbabwe 136 for 7 (Taibu 37*, Hafeez 3-11) by 5 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Pakistan completed a clean sweep of Zimbabwe in all three formats of the game, with a victory in the second Twenty20 in an exciting, last-ball finish in Harare. Zimbabwe's chase - thanks to controlled bowling from Pakistan - did not have any momentum until the final over, when Tatenda Taibu attacked.

With 20 runs required off six balls, Taibu smacked the first delivery for a six over long-on to set the tone for a fighting finish. His feisty running ensured two runs off each of the next four deliveries and left him with six to get off the last ball. Sohail Khan held his nerve and bowled a low, full toss wide outside off stump. Taibu had backed away to the leg side and was not even able to play a shot. It brought an anti-climatic end to a chase that Zimbabwe allowed to get too big for them, when it should not have.

Vusi Sibanda and Chamu Chibhabha began with the right intent, Sibanda opening the innings with a gorgeously straight drive for four. They scored a boundary off each of the first four overs but did not rotate the strike enough, and the required run-rate rose. Chibhabha tried to break the shackles when Saeed Ajmal came on, looking to loft over long on, but was caught by a backpedalling Yasir Shah outside the circle.

Ajmal's opening wicket maiden put the brakes on Zimbabwe's chase and they stayed on until the final over. Sibanda frustration grew and he was dismissed by a good Hafeez catch at point while attempting a big hit. Hafeez's Midas touch with both bat and ball was evident and he bowled Cephas Zhuwao with a straight delivery. He also claimed the wickets of Hamilton Maskadza, who gifted him a catch in his follow through, and Brendan Taylor, who was caught by Misbah-ul-Haq at midwicket.

With Zimbabwe's chase unravelling, big-hitting Charles Coventry flung his bat at the first three Junaid Khan deliveries he faced. Two of them went for four and the third he bottom-edged onto his stumps. Elton Chigumbura was able to play a few forceful shots, driving down the ground and pulling with relative ease, but was bogged down by bowling that was too good for him to smash out of the ground.

Pakistan's bowlers did not panic, even when it went down to the last over. Taibu had to marshal both Prosper Utseya and himself but in the end, Sohail had the final say.

Zimbabwe, however, had put on an improved display in the field, bowled better lengths and took all the catches they were offered to keep Pakistan to under 150. Taylor was innovative with his bowling changes and, after opening with a spinner, introduced Chibhabha in the third over. Chibhabha struck when Asad Shafiq tried to launch a length ball for six but was caught by Chigumbura at long-on.

Two balls later, Rameez Raja was caught at short fine leg. Kyle Jarvis, who bowled better lengths than he did in the previous couple of matches, banged in a short ball and Raja, late on the pull, and gifted Ray Price a simple catch. The hosts inflicted a third early wound on Pakistan when Shoaib Malik was caught behind off Chigumbura, after slashing at wide delivery.

Hafeez rode the tide and played another important innings, targeting the spinners in particular. While Hafeez was at the crease, Umar Akmal could afford to be watchful, especially against Chigumbura, who bowled a controlled spell dotted with slower balls. Price eventually got Hafeez, who lofted towards long-on but just did not have enough on it to clear the boundary.

Hafeez's departure resulted in the runs, and more importantly, the boundaries drying up and Pakistan only scored 36 runs in the last five overs. Akmal was run out returning for a second, caught well short of his crease by a Chigumbura throw, and big-hitting Tanvir was bowled by Jarvis. Jarvis was solid at the death and made good use of yorkers, a delivery he is close to perfecting.

    Pakistan are now getting better and better, Thankfully!

  • on September 20, 2011, 7:34 GMT

    @Criclover112, i agree Pakistan itself is struggling to find genuine pace after departure of Mohd Amer (hopefully Wahab Riaz may add a yard or two to his 145 odd kms) but how come India fails to produce a genuine fast bowler ever? Though there's much hype about some varun Aaron in india these days.

  • criclover112 on September 19, 2011, 22:36 GMT

    And why would anyone be jealous of a team that got thrashed 4-0, 1-0 and 3-0. What glitz and glamor is in a team that cant even produce a single fast bowler, Cricket too me is exciting whwn you see a great fast bowler running in and bowling, Indian cricket doesnt have that so it never impresses me. Riggght now Pak cricket is also lacking that and that is the reason I am not following them very closely.

  • criclover112 on September 19, 2011, 22:31 GMT

    @hira02 Ayaz said that they havent won a game in quite sometime, a 2 month long tour without any win is quite some time, no body said anything about a decade. As for the excuses you have given for India's winless tour, none of them are valid. You are talking about injuries, but from what i saw , India went in the last two test matches with their complete batting line up and still got hammered. harbajan singh before being injured was getting smacked around by the English batsmen especially peterson, so he was not really helpful even when he was present and he also didnt take that many wickets the caribbean. As for the rain, the matches were shortened and I did not see a single match where it was in England's favor. And I dont even know what dodgy decisions you are talking about, have you forgotten the second innings of the first test match, where tendulkar and co were plumb out and the umpires didnt give them out, but England still won, so stop making excuses.

  • Lord_Dravid on September 19, 2011, 20:09 GMT

    @Ayaz Noor M ..your're making it out like india havent won an international game in a decade..we've beaten west indies 1-0 in tht series and that too with our key players rested. the eng tour was cursed we had too many injuries, lacked preparation and exhausted and the dodgy DRS worked too many times in favour of eng. In the ODI it got worse with eng eventually playing india A and won 3-0 with the help from weather. we're certainly not jealous of pakistan beating ZIMBABWE or anyone for that matter..i think what you and fellow india bashers are jealous of is indian crickets glitz and glamour and financial might!

  • on September 19, 2011, 16:08 GMT

    @hira02, isn't the word 'won' making you feel jealous? After all you have not seen your team win any international fixture for a quite sometime. From 2nd test against WI till 5th odi against England, India hasnt won any international match! Too bad, but dont feel jealous, your time will come too, in your own backyard!

  • Gossip-Bouy on September 19, 2011, 13:22 GMT

    zimbabwe has shown immense improvement in all three formats of the game thumbs up to them they are in the right track. Whats needed now is they work on their tactics as they lose games they should have won due to lack of intelligent tactis. Pakistan was given a run for their money and held their breath in fear of losing in most games. i say come New Zealand we will justify our coming back into the test arena. Go BOys GO

  • EmjayKhan104 on September 19, 2011, 12:55 GMT

    20/20: Hafeez, Shahzaib Hasan, Asad Shafiq, Rameez Raja, Ahmad Shahzad, Umar Akmal(WK), Misbah, Afridi, Saeed Ajmal, Umar Gul, Wahab Riaz

    TESTS: Hafeez, Taufeeq, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Misbah, Mohammad Salman (WK), Hammad Azam, Aizaz Cheema, Saeed Ajmal, Sohail Khan.

    This is a brilliant combination and they will be competitive no doubt about it.

  • on September 19, 2011, 12:38 GMT

    @Hira02, one can easily see the frustration you may be experiencing by seeing Pakistani wins making the headlines consistently alongside indian whitewashes at the hands of English...but hey don't you worry as India will soon win some trophy by rigging hawk eye etc like they did in world cup semi final against Pakistan.

  • on September 19, 2011, 12:24 GMT

    @Gupta.Ankur, there were many odi games?? I hope you're not talking about eng ind series. For your info there were only 3 odis in this series, 1st Pak won by 5 runs (yup its a small margin) 2nd Pak completely outbeat them by thrashing them by 10 wickets, 3rd won by good 25 runs. While in 1st t20 Pak made 198 and won by great margin of 85 runs and yes last t20 won by only 5 runs

    Zimbabwe is an upcoming team that needs time to gel, if you have been following this our team's performance you will notice that there has been a great improvement, for instance there was once a time Zimbabwe faced difficulties registering wins with teams such as Kenya, you will also reckon that Bangladesh a team we used to beat like every time were now better, but we have risen to beat them and pose competition to you the Pakistani, i mean can't you see the improvement?

  • on September 19, 2011, 9:57 GMT

    Hafeez perfomance is excellent in all formats but still he need to prove himself against Sri Lanka & Australia tours because Zimbabwe cricket standard is not meet them, so it's an easy win and achivement by Pakistan Team.

    I would say that Afridi and Razzaq should step in again Pakistan Team because Misbah is not right Person who can lead the Pakistan Team in All format plus his age factor will attract on his game as well.

    Its not because i like Afridi or he entertian, it's because he handle an command and control in team and where he let new player get in Team like as in world cup he did.

    Afridi should work on his Batting Perfomance where he really Upset the Pakistani Fans and take responsiblity overall he's right person who can lead Our National Team in 2 Format and in T20 + ODI and in Test they should put Mohammed Hafeez as Captain to train him for Future purpose.

    Remember he did to much for Pakistan and as bring T20 World Cup because of him.

  • on September 19, 2011, 8:43 GMT

    Well done Pakistan. Keep it up. I like to see their continued good performance and upset England team on UAE tour.

  • Bilal_Choudry on September 19, 2011, 7:45 GMT

    @Gupta Ankur Get your facts right 1st T20 was one by 80 plus runs and Pak scored almost 200 ... secondly note that this is second string bowling attack ... plus big all rounders are also resting not in the team ... if pak was full strength pak would have won by 50 runs

  • sherdenia on September 19, 2011, 7:42 GMT

    pakistan was 30-40 runs short in this match but their bowlin was very good so they whitewash zimbabwe in all three formats like england did to india

  • on September 19, 2011, 6:50 GMT

    hafeez only play his natural game not think about captaincy

  • MalikAftabAhmedAwan on September 19, 2011, 6:00 GMT

    @azamaftab- I completely agree with you. Instead of looking backwards we should be looking forward. Players like Afridi and Malik are nothing but a disruptive influence in the tea. How many times will mr. Afridi retire and then return. Does he think that playing for the country is a joke? Similarly, I dont how understand how can people advocate for the return of players who have accepted their guilt in the courts. They brought nothing but shame and dishonour for the country and we want torr eward them for it.

  • on September 19, 2011, 5:49 GMT

    just imagine if hafeez was not playing in zimbabwe series then what happened with pakistani team

  • Ahsan_Shere on September 19, 2011, 5:42 GMT

    I think Hafeez should be made captain in T20 format for one year then for one-day format. My team for Sri Lanka Tests: 1.Taufeeq Umar 2.Mohammad Hafeez 3.Azhar Ali 4.Younis Khan 5.Misbah-ul-Haq 6.Asad Shafiq 7.Adnan Akmal 8.Umar Gul 9.Abdur Rahman 10.Wahab Riaz 11.Saeed Ajmal Reserves: Aizaz Cheema, Umar Akmal, Junaid Khan, Muhammad Salman, Tanvir Ahmed And for ODIs: 1.Imran Farhat 2.Mohammad Hafeez 3.Younis Khan 4.Misbah-ul-Haq 5.Asad Shafiq, 6.Umar Akmal 7.Abdur Razzaq 8.Adnan Akmal 9.Umar Gul 10.Wahab Riaz 11.Saeed Ajmal Reserves: Junaid Khan, Muhammad Salman, Sohail Khan, Sohail Tanvir, Muhammad Salman, Shoaib Malik, Yasir Shah

  • Gupta.Ankur on September 19, 2011, 4:32 GMT

    I think if Zimbabwe had been playing Intl. cricket more often then they would have won the Odi series.......

    There were many close games which they lost because of in-experience.....In 1st T20 Pak scored only 141........i think most top sides would have won that game...

  • azmaftab on September 19, 2011, 2:10 GMT

    I have seen a lot of comments saying we need to bring back this player and that player! I think we don't need the former players especially the disruptive ones. PCB should sit the likes of Afridi, Zulqarnanin haidar, Amir, Asif, Malik, Imran farhat, M.Yousuf and Malik that they will have to pull their socks up if they want to play! No one is bigger than the team and that should be crystal clear! No more dramas, if they want playing time they need to perform in the domestic circuit and show the hunger on the field once they get a chance otherwise there is the door and don't let it hit you on the way out! I think Pakistan need to take a leaf out of Manchester United, they have freaking replaced SO many big name players as Sir Alex's demand was simple, NO ONE IS BIGGER than the team!!

  • on September 19, 2011, 0:59 GMT

    pakistan should try imran nazir in T20 and also bring back wicket keeper haider and try to get mohd aamir and mohd asif back in team.Then we can beat any team.well done waqar.

  • Sandstorm82 on September 19, 2011, 0:43 GMT

    I like the sentiment behind giving Waqar something on his leaving day; it was nice to see. Hafeez was impressive and although his run of good form started with NZ and SA about 12 months ago, the real test for him will be SL and England. I hope he does well against them too. Jeevay Jeevay!!!

  • on September 18, 2011, 23:19 GMT

    Still a fan of Shahid afridi ,hope he return to th team soon.. all th excitement! ,its so boring now .i think it will not help pak cricket as long as he out of th field..

  • on September 18, 2011, 23:01 GMT

    pakistan was at least 30 runs short in this game, but it says alot about a team if they can defend a low total. Great job to Zim as well they really made a match of what wud otherwise be a boring game

  • on September 18, 2011, 21:20 GMT

    Who's next? Let this new side have meow experience.

  • Zahidsaltin on September 18, 2011, 20:53 GMT

    Rameez Raja(2) is a very talented batsman and has not given a chance in ODI where could prove his talent. Getting him in to T20 to start his career was very cruel. This is how the talent has been killed by PCB. You bring in some young ones to play one or two T20's or ODI and some times you send them in when the team needs slogs and then if that young player doesn't succeed, you lay him off for ever. Thats what you did to Mohammad irfan, Mansoor Amjad, Usman Sallahddin and many more. A new player must be given a proper run and that too not in the most difficult situations. Umar Amin's talent was killed to play him all his debut matches in England, in conditions where non of the established players from both sides could score big. PCB needs to reconsider its strategies for young talent.

  • Zahidsaltin on September 18, 2011, 20:37 GMT

    @hira02, you say, any team but Bangladesh will beat Zim?? check out india's last tour of Zim and find out how many ODI matches they lost to Zim. And you know, that Zim team was even weaker than the present one.

  • on September 18, 2011, 19:49 GMT

    This was an easy tour for a fairly new Pakistani team, some players showing extremely good form like Hafeez but older older players lacking such as Shoaib Malik. Pakistan's next challenge is keeping up this offensive with the same player on a stronger team, Goodl luck Pakistan.

  • Nduru on September 18, 2011, 19:42 GMT

    If Taylor and the Zimbabweans did not pitch up at the post-match presentation, there must be a good reason for it. The Zimbabwe team I know may not be the best in the world, but they are good sportsmen and are always respectful of the opposition. Very odd!

  • on September 18, 2011, 19:34 GMT

    I have a lot of respect for Zimbabwe batting coach Andy Flower. However he failed to remove one little batting mistake. They commit shots quite early, and that is why Hafeez was a big success. Hafeez gives a micro pause during his bowling run up, and he was able to see the commitment of the batsmen, and bowl accordingly. Hafeez is not better than Saeed Ajmal or even Aizaz Cheema, but he took most wickets because of his adjustment during the "pause". Brilliant bowling from Hafeez though, and the credit should not be taken away from him.

  • Lord_Dravid on September 18, 2011, 19:28 GMT

  • BravoBravo on September 18, 2011, 16:06 GMT

    I have to say that ZIM gave shivers to PAK in this match. Like Misbah said that this ZIM team has potential. It is another clean sweep recently. ZIM i s rather inexperienced and young, this clean sweep is not as humiliating as it is in the case of IND who is clean sweeped by ENG. Good Luck ZIM for your next series.

    Could someone kindly tell me why Brendon Taylor was not interviewed at the presentation ceremony. It is always normal practice for the losing skipper to be interviewed first and the rest follow after that. Was the whole team too embarrassed to appear? Or did I miss something? Could someone please enlighten me. Thanks.

    ok this time i have no excuses for Ramiz Raja jr , he SHOULD have done better! Also well played to both teams, Pakistan did a good bowling comeback and left Zim a LOT to get in the end, but Zim fought Hard and to the last delivery, so well done to them as well , they can lift their heads up high in International cricket again, good luck to both teams against NewZealand and SriLanka
