Zimbabwe in Pakistan, 3 T20I Series, 2020
Venue: Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi
Date & Time: 10 November 2020
RR: 8.47 | Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by 8 wickets
For his brilliant bowling display, Usman Qadir has been named the Man of the Match as well as the Man of the Series. That is it from this game. Pakistan whitewash Zimbabwe 3-0 in the T20I series and they also won the ODI series 2-1. Zimbabwe go home with just an ODI win. Pakistan will take confidence from this white ball series as they will now go to New Zealand for a full fledged tour starting from 18th December, 2020. Till then, stay safe, take care and goodbye!
Earlier in the evening after winning the toss and batting first, Zimbabwe never got going as Pakistan bowling led by Usman Qadir ran riot and restricted Zimbabwe to a minimal score of 129 on a batting track. Usman's spin just spun a web around Zimbabwe and his 4-fer never let the tourists off the hook.
No fairytale ending for Elton Chigumbura as he bids adieu to international cricket with a painful loss. Zimbabwe succumbed to yet another defeat. Cannot blame the Zimbabwe bowlers as they hardly had any runs to play with in a batting friendly track. Barring one wicket a piece for Milton Shumba and Wellington Masakadza, there was hardly anything from the Zimbabwe bowlers as they were outclassed yet again.
Chasing 130 on a track that is lovely to bat on was hardly going to be a challenge. They needed a solid start and though they were slow off the blocks, Abdullah Shafique gathered pace as the innings progressed. Khushdil Shah came out with an intent to wrap it up early and so he did with his blistering cameo. The only cause of small dent in an otherwise clinical series with the bat would be Fakhar Zaman's form.
Another easy chase for the home side and unlike the ODIs, Pakistan have thoroughly dominated Zimbabwe in an one-sided series, clean sweeping the tourists, 3-0. Pakistan continue their dominance over Zimabwe in the shortest format of the game making it 14 in 14 in their last 14 games.
