that's the end of that. Sharp turn back in from middle, he plays all around this delivery, misses a work to the on side, trapped plumb in front. This would've smashed legstump. Pakistan 4-0 up
Who else but Fakhar Zaman, for Man of the Match.
Another day, another meek surrender. After every game, you think it can't get worse for Zimbabwe, but they continue to defy that theory by coming up with one shock performance after another. This one will hurt them even more than the other night, perhaps, where they were rolled over for 67. First, they saw Fakhar Zaman whack Pakistan's first ODI double ton, nearly conceded 400 and then batted so poorly that just two batsmen even managed to cross 30. About intent, less said the better. Not for an over did they show any urgency to allow the bowlers to even think about altering their strategy. Not ideal preparation for Pakistan, but you can only play the opponents that are listed. This is Pakistan's second biggest win in ODIs, behind the 255-run win over Ireland in 2015.
