96* Runs by Shoaib Malik in this match - the second-highest by a Pakistan No. 5 and the fourth-highest by any Pakistan batsman batting at No. 5 or lower in a chase. No Pakistan No. 5 has ever made a century in an ODI chase. Ijaz Ahmed got the closest with 98* against South Africa in 1994.
93.20 Malik's batting average in ten ODIs he's played since his international return earlier in the year. He has made 466 runs including one century and three fifties. Before 2015, he had last played for Pakistan in 2013 when he averaged 22.55 from 12 ODIs.
180 Runs scored by Pakistan after the loss of their sixth wicket at the score of 76. There are only three instances of teams getting bigger contributions from their last four wickets in ODIs after being six down for less than 100. The record is held by Africa XI, who added 206 runs for their last four wickets against Asia XI. Before this match, the most Pakistan had tallied for their last four wickets was 172 against Australia in 2001.
3 Times Zimbabwe had beaten Pakistan in ODIs before this game. The two teams have played 53 ODIs against each other and Zimbabwe's last victory over Pakistan was also in Harare.
0 Zimbabwe batsmen dismissed by Pakistan's spinners in this match. The hosts also scored 123 runs off the 150 balls they faced off spin. Before this game, they had conceded 15 wickets to Pakistan's slow bowlers, averaging just 10.40 runs per dismissal in the two T20Is and the first ODI.
276 Zimbabwe's total in this match - their highest when batting first against Pakistan and the third-highest ODI score against them in all.
111 Runs added by Shoaib Malik and Aamer Yamin - Pakistan's second-highest partnership for the seventh wicket in ODIs, and their highest seventh-wicket stand in a chase.
2 Times Chamu Chibhabha has got out in the nineties in ODIs. He made 90 off 125 balls today. The previous instance also came against Pakistan - 99 in Lahore earlier this year. Chibhabha has made 14 fifties in ODIs and is yet to make a hundred.
5 Fifties by Chibhabha in 2015 - the most he has made in any year. This has been the most productive year in his ODI career - 611 runs at an average of 47. Overall Chibhabha has 1923 ODI runs at an average of 25.64.
9 Zimbabwe batsmen who have been dismissed hit-wicket in ODIs, including Elton Chigumbura in this match. The previous instance had been at the World Cup - Regis Chakabva against UAE.
1 Pakistan opener to be dismissed for a duck on debut before Bilal Asif today. Salman Butt had got out without scoring in his first ODI against West Indies in 2004. Overall, Asif is the 17th Pakistan batsman to fall for no score on debut in 50-over cricket.
56 Runs Pakistan had made when they lost their fifth wicket. This was the second-lowest score at the fall of their fifth wicket in ODIs against Zimbabwe. The only time they lost their top half for fewer runs came in 1997 in Sharjah, when they had been five down for 41 runs.
62 Runs for Yamin in this match which equalled the fourth-highest by a Pakistan No. 8 in a chase. Yamin, who was playing only the second ODI of his career, had a batting average of 22.75 and a highest of 63* in List-A cricket before his ODI debut.
