Pakistan in Zimbabwe ODI Series - 1st ODI

Zimbabwe v Pakistan

Zimbabwe won by 7 wickets (with 10 balls remaining)

14.5

Utseya to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, nicely done, Utseya gets the breakthrough after the dropped catches, floats it up across from round the stumps, Shehzad drawn into a hard push, drags the back foot out as he misses, it is pinned just outside the line as Taylor breaks the stumps, square-leg umpire gives it right away

Ahmed Shehzad st †Taylor b Utseya 24 (61m 47b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.06

Pakistan 56/1   Nasir Jamshed 20* (42b 2x4)   P Utseya 1.5-0-8-1

19.5

Chatara to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, fuller length just outside off. Jamshed gets forward to drive through cover, but with minimal footwork, as he ends up getting a thin edge, which carries to the keeper. The Zimbabweans go up instantly and the umpire confirms the decision with a raise of the finger. Big wicket for Zimbabwe

Nasir Jamshed c †Taylor b Chatara 27 (83m 53b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.94

Pakistan 80/2   Mohammad Hafeez 17* (19b 2x6)   TL Chatara 5.5-1-13-1

37.4

Chatara to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, gone now, slower one does it, it was bowled very wide, Hafeez tried to run it between backward point and short third man but only spooned it up to the latter

Mohammad Hafeez c Maruma b Chatara 70 (91m 71b 6x4 3x6) SR: 98.59

Pakistan 179/3   Misbah-ul-Haq 44* (55b 2x4)   TL Chatara 7.4-2-16-2

38.4

Panyangara to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, OUT, Amin is gone on the second run, after facing just one ball, it was always going to a tight attempt as they decided to go for the additional run after a whip behind square leg, the throw was at the right end, the bowler's, and was spot-on, Amin had a long way to cover, he didn't help himself at all by hesitating in responding to Misbah's push for the second

Umar Amin run out 1 (5m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 184/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 48* (60b 2x4)   T Panyangara 6.4-2-15-0

41.4

Vitori to Shahid Afridi, OUT, he's had one swipe too many at these length deliveries, and edged this one into the keeper's gloves

Shahid Afridi c †Taylor b Vitori 11 (13m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

Pakistan 198/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 51* (63b 2x4)   BV Vitori 6.4-0-33-1

43.2

Vitori to Haris Sohail, OUT, hello, how is this even possible, calling this a blinder is a huge understatement, Sohail has bashed this widish length delivery, Utseya is there at shortish extra cover for the uppish drive, but this is a full-blown cross-batted thunderblow, Utseya has leapt to his right, taken it one-handed, and come down on earth with the ball lodged safely in his hands, once he realises it has stuck, he allows himself a relieved celebration, holding arms aloft

Haris Sohail c Utseya b Vitori 2 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Pakistan 202/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 53* (66b 2x4)   BV Vitori 7.2-0-35-2

47.5

Vitori to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, OUT, he's been given by the third umprire, Sarfraz had set off for what seemed to be a dangerous second in front of square leg, but looked to have made it with a massive dive before Taylor took the bails off, taking the ball in front of the stumps, that didn't make for easy decision making on the replays, but at worst there was doubt on this one, and at best, Sarfraz's bat was safely in, stunned glances all around from Pakistan, from Sarfraz, Misbah, and Whatmore

Sarfraz Ahmed run out 7 (22m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

Pakistan 223/7   Misbah-ul-Haq 65* (75b 3x4)   BV Vitori 9.5-0-42-2
