Pakistan in Zimbabwe ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Zimbabwe v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 28 runs

6.5

Vitori to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, the radar is not with Zimbabwe, it is with Pakistan! Short from Vitori, angling into the batsman, and Hafeez responds with an imperious pull. It seemed set to sail towards the midwicket boundary, but hang on.. There was a man at deep midwicket. And Hafeez could not have picked him out more accurately if he had tried to.

Mohammad Hafeez c Waller b Vitori 23 (36m 21b 4x4 0x6) SR: 109.52

Pakistan 45/1   Imran Farhat 18* (21b 3x4)   BV Vitori 3.5-1-26-1

14.2

Chigumbura to Imran Farhat, OUT, Elton does the job. He's tied Farhat down with the tight lengths, and suddenly goes fuller, and I suspect, slightly slower. Farhat was too eager to drive, he seemed to be early on the shot and scooped it in the air towards cover, who tumbled forward to take a smart catch.

Imran Farhat c Chibhabha b Chigumbura 37 (69m 45b 7x4 0x6) SR: 82.22

Pakistan 76/2   Asad Shafiq 10* (22b 2x4)   E Chigumbura 2.2-0-6-1

33.4

Price to Asad Shafiq, OUT, appeal for stumping, and Shafiq could be in trouble. Flighted ball from Price, landed outside leg after passing Shafiq who was lured out of the crease for the flick. He missed, Taibu didn't collect it cleanly at first, but grabbed the rebound off his chest and removed the bails well on time. The umpire seems to have forgotten to signal a wide too.

Asad Shafiq st †Taibu b Price 51 (103m 72b 3x4 1x6) SR: 70.83

Pakistan 173/3   Younis Khan 55* (66b 5x4)   RW Price 5.4-1-22-1

39.3

Chigumbura to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Elton Chigumbura takes a blinder on the rebound! Zimbabwe's fielding continues to be a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde show. Full ball on off stump, Malik got into the drive and hit it to the left of the bowler at shin-height. Elton reacted superbly on his follow through to pluck it low to his left as he skid and tumbled alongside it.

Shoaib Malik c & b Chigumbura 14 (23m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 211/4   Younis Khan 79* (87b 6x4 1x6)   E Chigumbura 8.3-1-34-2

40.3

Jarvis to Younis Khan, OUT, another stunning return catch, and Pakistan are in a spot of strife here. It was in many ways a replay of Malik's dismissal - full ball, eliciting the drive to the left of the bowler, who reacted rapidly to tumble and pluck it low, with both hands this time, on his follow through. Younis seemed to be drawn into the shot early and couldn't keep it down. 300 too optimistic now?

Younis Khan c & b Jarvis 81 (99m 90b 6x4 1x6) SR: 90.00

Pakistan 215/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 2* (3b)   KM Jarvis 6.3-0-35-1
