Over 20 Pakistan 163/3/No

Right! We are done and dusted with this. Zimbabwe are effectively out of the running to make it to the final as they don't have a single point on the board after three games. So, Pakistan and Australia will face off for the trophy. But, before that, they will take on each other on 5th July in the 5th game of the tri-series. It begins at 1000 local (0800 GMT). Do join in for that. Cheers!
Sarfraz Ahmed, the winning captain, sounds very unhappy with Pakistan's bowling performance. He states that since his batters gave them a good start, they could overhaul the target. Says that the upcoming game against Australia is a dress rehearsal before the finals, in which they'll look to do well.
Hamilton Masakadza, the losing skipper, is happy with the fight shown by his team mates, although they lost the game. States that they ended up 15-20 runs short and also opines that their fielding let them down. Feels hopeful of doing better in the coming game. Opines that since they don't get many international games, they need to do well in whatever opportunities that they get.
Solomon Mire is adjudged the Man of the Match for his knock of 94. He says that it was a good day for him and hence the shots came off. Concedes that the gameplan for them was that at least one in the top three need to stay long and take the game deep. States that he had been struggling for a while in recent times with the ball and hence is good to get a few overs under his belt.
Zimbabwe needed wickets to win this game. Solomon Mire and Tarisai Musakanda gave them a fighting chance with the total they had on the board, but the bowlers couldn't back it up. The powerplay more or less ended it for them, because post that, the Pakistan batsmen never needed to take any risks and went about their business without any trouble. Also, the captaincy maybe lack some aggression, as Pakistan were allowed to rotate strike without any pressure. It was an improved performance from them, but just wasn't enough. Plenty to still work on obviously.
A comfortable enough victory for the Men in Green. Had 5 balls to spare. It all began with the start Zaman and Sohail provided them. That pretty much put the visiting side in pole position to win this game as the asking rate was always in control after that and the batsmen to follow had their jobs made easy for them. Solid partnerships from the middle order, which included the likes of Talat, Sarfraz and Malik, saw the match through with utmost ease.

17.2
C Mpofu to H Talat, OUT! Got 'em! Seems this was the plan all along. It's worked, albeit after conceding two extra runs. Full and wide again outside off, Talat goes after it this time and gets it off the outer half. it goes flies towards point where Zhuwao moves a little to his right and takes a sharp catch.

B Muzarabani to S Ahmed, It keeps a little low as Blessing bowls the off cutter on a back of a length, which is it takes the inner edge onto the pads as Sarfraz looks to swing across the line. He wanted the run, but was sent back by Talat. For some reason, he's annoyed with Hussain. Not sure why, because the run was never on.

B Muzarabani to S Ahmed, Brings out the short one and bangs it in short, Sarfraz attempts to play the ramp shot but fails to make connection.
