The players shake hands with each other and off they go to the pavilion now. Fawad chats with Yousuf, who keeps nodding patiently! Malik comes out with his team to greet the Zimbabweans. Shoaib Malik has been named the man of the match. That's it for now. This is Sriram Veera, your commentator of the day, saying alvida. Good night and Shab bakhair.
