commentary

Pakistan are off to a sensational start in this tri-series. The gulf between the sides was evident on the park. The greater challenge lies against Australia but for now, let them enjoy this victory. Join us for Pakistan against Australia tomorrow, it promises to be a tasty encounter. Until then, this is Varun Dixit signing off on behalf of Sagar Chawla and Siva.

Asif Ali is the Man of the Match.

Sarfraz Ahmed: First match of the series is really important. Fakhar Zaman played really well at the top and Shoaib Malik and Asif finished the innings well. It looked like a really good wicket. There was some movement initially but later on it became an excellent track to bat on. We were little bit lethargic in the field but our bowling was exceptional, specially Nawaz. Plenty of cricket still to be played in this series.

Hamilton Masakadza: Only bright point was winning the toss. I think we gave them 20 runs extra. We started ok but we lost our way in the middle period. Our batting order was fine, we need to work on the execution part. We don't need to make changes in the team yet, we need to apply better at the top of the order.

13:16 Local Time, 11:16 GMT, 16:46 IST: Resounding victory for Pakistan. There is a gap of 11 places between these two sides in the T20 rankings and Pakistan justified that gap. Hosts were never in the game while chasing this. It was just a matter of victory margin and that was a comprehensive 74-run one in the end. Musakanda would be happy with his effort on debut but his team's effort was a disaster. Musakanda's effort with the bat and couple of lusty blows from Chigumbura and Mire were the only bright spots for Zimbabwe in the batting department.

Hafeez to Muzarabani, out Bowled!! Hafeez gets his second wicket in five balls. It was well tossed up, Muzarabani was enticed by the air on the ball. He wanted to stand and deliver, ball gripped the surface and it turned. Muzarabani misses it by a long way and it crashes into his sticks. Jarvis won't come out to bat. So that will be victory for Pakistan. Muzarabani b Hafeez 0(2)

Hafeez to Muzarabani, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Hafeez to Ryan Burl, out Caught by Shoaib Malik!! It took Hafeez only two balls to pick up the wicket. It was well tossed up at the stumps, Ryan Burl brings out the reverse sweep, doesn't time it as well as he would have liked and fails to clear the short fine leg-fielder. Ryan Burl c Shoaib Malik b Hafeez 9(11)

Hafeez to Ryan Burl, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Usman Khan to Tendai Chisoro, out Caught by Sarfraz!! Another one bites the dust.

Usman Khan to Musakanda, out Caught by Shadab Khan!! Decent outing for Musakanda on his debut but he won't take his team anywhere close to the target. Usman Khan hits the deck hard on back of a length, Musakanda wanted to carve it over the mid-off fielder, he got this off the outside half of the bat and it did not have enough distance to clear long-off where Shadab takes a dolly. Musakanda c Shadab Khan b Usman Khan 43(35) [4s-2]

Usman Khan to Musakanda, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Usman Khan [2.0-0-8-0] is back into the attack

Zim need 81 off 24 balls. It is almost impossible now.

Hasan Ali to Chigumbura, out Bowled!! Hasan Ali eventually comes back and takes wickets after getting hit. He has the last laugh in this min-battle too. It was a well disguised slower ball, Chigumbura wanted to hit it through the line but he was through the shot before the ball arrived and it smashes the stumps. Chigumbura b Hasan Ali 14(10) [4s-1 6s-1]

Hasan Ali to Chigumbura, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!
