Zimbabwe vs Pakistan - 2nd ODI

Series: Pakistan tour of Zimbabwe, 2018
Venue: Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo
Date: 16 July 2018

Pakistan 195/1 (36 Ovs) RR: 5.42 | Pakistan won by 9 wkts

commentary

In these chilly temperatures, Pakistan have been fiery. Poor Usman, the only crime he's probably done to not win the Man of the Match is the short term memory some of the jury possess. But it's Zimbabwe who'll have to search for plenty of answers, quickly. The series could well be snatched away from them on Wednesday. This was Vineet Anantharaman bringing you this in the company of Pradeep Krishnamurthy, Akshay Maanay and our scorer Vinod. Until next time, ta ta!!

Sarfraz Ahmed | Winning skipper: Usman bowled superbly and in the end Fakhar Zaman came and sealed it for us. Since he came back from injury, Usman has bowled really well against Sri Lanka on flat wickets and has been working very hard. Our fielding is one area where we are slightly lacking. There are chances of shuffling the line-up but first we'll try to win.

Fakhar Zaman | MoM: When you are in form, giving your 100-percent in the nets, you will succeed. When you are in good form you should capitalize and it was my day when I batted till the end. Imam was a bit unlucky but I carried on till the end. The wicket in the second innings was really good; it was good in the first innings as well, unlike the last game.

Hamilton Masakadza | Losing skipper: A very tough day in office. I got out at the wrong time trying to up the scoring, and 200 was never going to be enough. We are losing crucial wickets at key times and just not rotating the strike enough. Without much of a score on the board, it isn't easy for the bowlers. Hopefully we can put up a better performance in the next game and make it tough.

15:52 local, 19:22 IST: Give this Pakistan some challenge. 194 was clearly short of one, and they've made sure they stay clinical in dusting it off. If it was Imam to anchor the innings in the first game, it's been all Fakhar Zaman today. He started with everything finding the middle of his bat and ended up in a struggle to get anything to connect cleanly. Nevertheless, he now has his highest ODI score and anchors another comprehensive chase. The Zimbabwean bowlers never gave themselves a chance, constantly being at the mercy of the attack the openers let out without anything on the board to attack after. But make no mistake, it's Pakistan's bowling that set it up .. Usman with his four-fer and pace, Hasan with his three-fer and more pace. The presentations lined up.

Muzarabani to Fakhar Zaman, out Imam-ul-Haq Run Out!! Confusion here. Looks like it was a late call from Russell Tiffin to go for the third umpire. Fair enough, Imam-ul-Haq was scrambling home, he put in the dive, but the bat bounced and was in the air when Muzarabani broke the stumps. Zimbabwe have their first wicket, Zaman called for a quick single after dropping the ball at his feet, they went through for the single and then Imam hesitated. It then became a one-on-one race with the bowler, Muzarabani was quick onto the ball, grabbed it and then broke the stumps - with Imam-ul-Haq struggling. Had he grounded the bat and then had it bounced - he would have been safe, according to new rules, but it wasn't so. Imam-ul-Haq run out (Muzarabani) 44(51) [4s-4]
