View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c †Taylor b Chatara 38 67 51 3 1 74.50
15.3 fuller length outside off and Jamshed, looking to drive through extra-cover, gets a thick edge on its way to the keeper. Gives away a useful start as Zimbabwe strike for the first time this morning 66/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Sikandar Raza b H Masakadza 54 135 85 3 0 63.52
32.2 full outside off, and Shehzad has fallen under pressure in the deep. He drove it and took the aerial route but didn't get the distance and Sikander Raza at long-off runs to his right and takes a good catch 119/2
Mohammad Hafeez not out 26 46 34 3 0 76.47
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Sikandar Raza b SW Masakadza 67 114 85 6 0 78.82
49.4 it is not often you get a second straight chance at redemption. This time Misbah, who had crossed with Hafeez the previous ball, hits it straight in the same area, except this one is higher than flatter. Raza settles in under it, and completes the catch 251/6
View dismissal Umar Amin c & b Utseya 33 35 25 4 0 132.00
40.2 length ball on middle and leg. Prosper falls sharply to his left to hold on to a sharp return chance. Excellent response from Utseya after Amin signalled his intent. Timely wicket for Zimbabwe, as Umar goes for a promising cameo of 33 off 25 balls. In walks the master of disaster, the incomparable, Shahid Afridi 170/3
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c †Taylor b Chatara 7 17 7 0 0 100.00
43.6 short of a length outside off and without moving his feet Afridi has a waft at it and ends up getting a thick edge on the way to the keeper. This could hurt Pakistan's chances of a competitive total, while Zimbabwe will like their chances even more 195/4
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c †Taylor b Chatara 22 23 13 2 0 169.23
48.4 full delivery on leg and Ahmed, trying to squirt it through the off side, ends up getting an edge which just carries to Brendan Taylor behind. Good low catch 243/5

View dismissal H Masakadza st †Sarfraz Ahmed b Abdur Rehman 25 47 42 3 1 59.52
10.4 and Rehman does the trick in his first over. He tosses this one up much more than the previous balls. Masakadza's eyes light up as he comes down the track but he plays across the line, looking to clip it towards midwicket. The ball grips, turns and leaves Masakadza stranded in the middle of the wicket as Sarfraz does the rest 46/2
View dismissal V Sibanda c Umar Amin b Mohammad Hafeez 2 14 8 0 0 25.00
3.4 oh, he's fallen to the only man out there in the deep. The ball was there to be hit, but Sibanda doesn't get the power he wanted. Nice, flighted ball from Hafeez and he goes down on one knee to slog sweep it. Umar Amin runs around and pulls out the slide to hold on to a good catch. Zimbabwe lose their first 12/1
View dismissal BRM Taylor*† run out (Misbah-ul-Haq) 26 50 29 5 0 89.65
14.5 Abdur Rehman to Sikandar Raza, direct hit! And guess who it is. Misbah-ul-Haq has got rid of his opposite number. Raza leans into a push-drive to the covers and sets off, but hesitates a little bit which causes just enough confusion for Misbah to hare around, grab the ball and hit the bulls-eye. 66/3
View dismissal Sikandar Raza lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 6 24 16 0 0 37.50
15.6 given straightaway! It pitched on length just outside off, Raza went back to defend but missed and was struck right in front of the stumps after turning. Four down now Zimbabwe 68/4
View dismissal SC Williams run out (Misbah-ul-Haq) 2 14 3 0 0 66.66
16.6 Abdur Rehman to Waller, another run-out chance and is he gone? It's gone to the third umpire. It was flatter outside off and they went for the single as soon as Waller pushed it on off. When the bail is dislodged, he looks in, but was out a frame before that. The replays are not very conclusive here and he's been given out! Williams stretched a lot there but looks like it wasn't enough. The third umpire took a long long time and we got a feeling he would be given not out for getting the benefit of the doubt but a brave decision from the umpire 75/5
View dismissal MN Waller c Abdur Rehman b Saeed Ajmal 48 86 71 4 0 67.60
39.6 and its all over. Ajmal gives this one a little air and bowling from around the wicket forces Waller to look to clip it into the leg side. The leading edge is taken and Abdur Rehman at point takes the simplest of catches. Pakistan win the deciding ODI and claim the series. 152/10
View dismissal E Chigumbura lbw b Shahid Afridi 2 14 13 0 0 15.38
22.4 gone this time! It was closer and would have hit the stumps. Afridi darted another one into the batsman, it pitched around off and came, Chigumbura defended but his bat didn't come down on time and the ball hit his pads right in front of the stumps just around the knee roll 87/6
View dismissal P Utseya run out (Umar Amin/†Sarfraz Ahmed) 23 50 50 1 0 46.00
36.6 from Abdur Rehman, Oh mix up there and he's run out! Holds this one back just a touch and the batsman stays at his crease, looking to work it square on the leg side. He can't make any contact as the ball dribbles down to short third man. The batsman sets off for a single but the fielder grabs the ball and throws it back with more than enough time for the keeper to remove the bails. Utseya trudges off and Zimbabwe lose an important wicket 145/7
View dismissal SW Masakadza b Saeed Ajmal 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
37.2 cleans him up with the doosra. Brilliant bowling from Ajmal. Inviting flight draws the batsman forward into a defence that lacked conviction. The ball turns past the outside edge and crashes into top of off. Ajmal lives up to his nickname of Magician 146/8
View dismissal T Panyangara c & b Abdur Rehman 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
38.3 top edge and Rehman yells a loud "mine" and takes it safely. Another wicket in the infamous Powerplay. Fuller ball on middle forces the Panyangara to go for the sweep but he is nowhere near the pitch of it and skies it. Rehman moves a few yards to his left and holds on to a relatively easy catch 149/9
