Captain Pakistan team played wining stroke.


Pakistan successfully chased the 173 runs target in the final over of inning without facing any considerable hindrance.

The opening batsmen Mukhtar Ahmad and Ahmad Shahzad built the highest opening 142 run partnership for Pakistan when the later was dismissed at 55 runs. Mukhtar was caught out at 83 runs off 45 balls only. Muhamad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik contributed 12 and 7 runs respectively.

Zimbabwe’s Cremer picked two wickets whereas Williams, Panyangara and Vitori each got one wicket.

Firstly :Zimbabwe played their part, putting up a strong total, thanks to a superb fifty from their captain Elton Chigumbura, and picked up the wickets towards the end. Had it not been for the 142-run opening stand between Mukhtar Ahmed, who hit a fantastic 83, and Shehzad, who knows what could have happened. The home side now lead the two-match series 1-0.
