Thanks for joining us today. I'll be back to keep you company for Pakistan-Australia. Hope to see you then. Cheers
"Bowling not upto the mark," says Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed. "They have to work hard."
Solomon Mire is the Player of the Match for his 63-ball 94
On Tuesday, Solomon Mire was most vocal about the pain of seeing Zimbabwean fans turn against their own side and cheer for Australia, who hammered them by 100 runs. On Wednesday, he batted like a man desperate to woo them back in a heroic performance. He smashed 94 off 63 balls - Zimbabwe's highest individual T20I score - but it wasn't enough to see his side to victory. This meant Zimbabwe were also knocked out of the tri-series with one game to play.
As it so often happens, Sarfraz Ahmed, the Pakistan captain, kept his composure to make an unbeaten 38 as Pakistan walked what seemed a potentially difficult chase at one point with five balls to spare and seven wickets in hand. Sarfraz put together 43 with Talat Ali,, who made 44 from No. 3, to do a bulk of the work as the No. 1 side set up a finale with Australia.
Much simpler from 25 off 16. This should be a walk in the park from here. Unless Muzarabani takes two in an over. Can he be the hero?
Pramod Verma: "Zimbabwe needed 180. They have put a good fight and should be proud of their efforts."
