3.50pm That is that in Bulawayo. Pakistan break their 2018 ODI duck in some style. The win was set up by Imam-ul-Haq's second ODI hundred. His 128 and Asif Ali's late assault carried the visitors to 308 for 7, shaping a 201-run victory. Chasing a steep target, Zimbabwe continued to lose wickets and were eventually dismissed for 107 - their lowest total in Bulawayo. Do stick with us for the presentations...

Hamilton: I thought the seamers bowled well upfront and at the death. We lost it in the middle. Too many soft dismissals - the first three wickets were soft and you can't chase 300 with that. Murray and Liam made a good account of themselves and showed promise. The guys need to pick themselves up, four more to go

Imam, Player of the Match: It is a great feeling to come back in the side. We did not have a good time in New Zealand and I was working hard. I want to thank the management. We knew if we play the first 10 overs according to the situation we knew we could put up a good score. Thanks to my parents and the management. If you get set, you make sure you play in the end. I try to do that and I succeeded today.

Sarfraz Ahmed: If the team performs well, the captain is definitely happy. I think we could have got more runs in the end but there was overcast conditions. Zaman and Imam played well in the first 15 overs. Very pleased with the bowlers' performance but we need to work more. Every match is very important and we want to take it one by one.

That's a wrap of this game. Goodbye for now
