Another shocking performance with the bat resulted in Zimbabwe stooping to 67. Such was the dominance by Pakistan that it was all wrapped up before the lunch break. As Masakdaza said, they should show more application with the bat in the remaining two games. On that note, it's a goodbye from us here. Ta-ta!
Sarfraz Ahmed: It was a pleasing performance from the boys. Especially, Faheem and Junaid. Credit goes to my bowlers, they bowled really well. Faheem Ashraf is getting better day by day. We will try our level best in the next two games and two more opportunities for the guys to perform.
Hamilton Masakadza: It was a disaster. I just tell the guys to stay positive, focus on the next game. Need a little more application from the batsmen, too many errors and lot of work to be done. We have to come out firing next game and hopefully, put some runs for the bowlers to defend.
12:20 Local Time: Happy faces in the Pakistan dressing room, handshakes all over. Despite the early hiccup, Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam ensured that there was no more wobble in pursuit of a meagre 68. The Zimbabwean new ball bowlers - Blessing Muzarabani and Richard Ngarava - did show stomach for a fight, cranking it up. The duo of - Zaman and Azam - took their time, negated the threat and once they were settled, it was a mere stroll in the park. The target of 68 was never going to challenge Pakistan and the end result is they have secured the series and have taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
