Mohammad Hasnain401924.75141100
17.4 to TK Musakanda, Hasnain puts an end to Musakanda's innings with a picture perfect yorker. It's, again, Waqar like, angling into the batsman as he tries to make room. Beats the inside edge and crashes into the bottom of leg stump. Hasnain unsheathes that boyish smile and it's happy days for Pakistan once more. 108/6
19.3 to LM Jongwe, this is really clever bowling from Hasnain. Goes short and wide outside off, knowing he's going to back away. Has him stretching at the end of his range, and only manages to sky it to deep cover, where Fakhar Zaman takes a simple catch. 116/9
Faheem Ashraf201015.0061000
4.4 to BRM Taylor, soft dismissal for a player of Taylor's class. Banged in short on fifth stump with a scrambled seam, tries to muscle a pull over mid-on, instead top-edges this and it swirls gently over cover where the Professor takes a simple catch at waist height 10 yards in from the edge of the ring.. 19/1
Arshad Iqbal401614.00121000
10.1 to T Marumani, and there's a wicket! My patience appears to have paid off. Excitement to start off, with the batsman going for a bit of a heave back down the ground. Nevr really got to the pitch or hit through the line of the ball. He gets an inside edge, and Mohammad Rizwan takes a smart catch diving to his left. Arshad Iqbal has his first international wicket. 47/2
Haris Rauf301013.33121010
18.5 to RW Chakabva, yorker, almost perfect yorker, and it clatters Chakabva on the toe. Huge appeal from the Pakistanis and the umpire raises his finger. Impact looked as if it might be outside the line, but the decision goes the visitors' way. 116/7
Usman Qadir402817.0082000
13.1 to RP Burl, reverse sweep from Burl, with the ball scooping up into the air. Rizwan has an easy catch, and Burl is livid with himself, as he may well be. Just looks like a soft dismissal, without any real conviction behind that shot. Zimbabwe beginning to lose wickets in a bunch now. 71/4
Danish Aziz302929.6631100
12.3 to TS Kamunhukamwe, and that's Kamunhakamwe gone! Tried to play the same shot, drive it inside out over cover, but didn't get the elevation this time, giving the man in the ring a simple catch. Zimbabwe lose their third. 68/3
14.4 to W Madhevere, ahhh, Wes, what are you doing? And Danish, what are you doing today! The left armer gets his second as Madhevere goes for a reverse sweep he misses completely, with the ball smashing into middle. Madhevere is good enough to play better shots than that, while Danish smiles sheepishly at the very thought of having taken two wickets. 83/5

Blessing Muzarabani402416.00132110
18.1 to Faheem Ashraf, and he strikes first ball! Everything going Zimbabwe's way now. In the blockhole, he tried to time it over fine leg. Failed to get under it and Ryan Burl made a few yards to his left to take a deft catch. 87/6
Richard Ngarava301013.33111000
16.2 to Asif Ali, Ngarava strikes! Pakistan are crumbling here and Asif Ali's woes continue! Nothing shot from Asif Ali, no timing. He didn't read the slower ball and scoops it up to Tiripano at mid-off. 79/5
Luke Jongwe3.501844.69121020
5.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, Rizwan loses his concentration, mainly out of extreme over-conservativism, and punches a soft catch to extra cover. Jongwe starts off with a slower ball for his first delivery of the day on a fullish length on fourth stump, Rizwan can't keep his hands back and spoons this gently to the man 10 yards in from the edge of the ring who shuffles right and takes a simple catch at head height.. 21/1
15.5 to Babar Azam, and he snares Babar! Babar Azam departs and Jongwe pumps his fists! Are Zimbabwe really going to win this? Slower ball which Babar looked to muscle over cover, but only finds Madhevere at deep cover point. Jongwe unfurls that celebration Shamsi will wish he'd trademarked, and Zimbabwe are prowling. 78/4
19.4 to Haris Rauf, another wicket! Haris spooned it to Brendan Taylor and ZImbabwe have a swagger in their step with these celebrations. He rolled his fingers over it and Taylor gives him a big hug after taking the catch. 99/9
19.5 to Arshad Iqbal, What an extraordinary achievement for Zimbabwe. They crawled to 118, looked as if Pakistan would absolutely pummel them. But they began tidily, never gave any extra runs away, didn't drop catches, and suddenly, Pakistan found themselves in a game. In those tighter moments, Zimbabwe were far superior, and it was fairly comfortable in the endPakistan are bowled out for 99! Zimbabwe have thrashed Pakistan here, humbling them by 19 runs to achieve a first T20I win against this country. Sombre day for Pakistan as Zimbabwe are in a huddle. 99/10
Wessley Madhevere301605.3371020
Ryan Burl402125.2571010
7.5 to Fakhar Zaman, the self-imposed dot ball pressure by the batting side results in a wicket. Overpitched on fifth stump, slogs this trying to clear long-on, but strikes it too flat and Masakanda is there five yards in from the rope to shuffle right and take a sharp catch.. 37/2
11.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, and the third wicket falls! Hafeez danced down the ground but couldn't get underneath the ball. It made a beeline for long-on, who was well-positioned and takes the catch comfortably. 56/3
