Over 10 Pakistan 69/1/No

We didn't expect that it will be such an easy walk in the park for Pakistan but Zimbabwe are so much morally-deflated due to their poor form that this was on the cards. The series is already gone for the home side but there is something called as pride. To uphold that, they will need to play out of their skins against a team which is in its elements. Join us for the 4th ODI in Bulawayo at 0915 Local (0715 GMT) to catch all the action. Till then, cheers!
Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed says that he is very pleased about the performance. Appreciates Junaid Khan and Faheem Ashraf for the way they bowled. States that Ashraf was on the money and his batting is a plus for the side as well. Mentions that they will give their best in the remaining two games.
Zimbabwe skipper, Hamilton Masakadza says that it was a forgettable game for them. Mentions that they would try to rectify their mistakes and improve themselves. States that more application is needed by the batsmen. Ends by saying that he hopes that his boys will fire in the next game and give their bowlers something to play for.
However, Fakhar Zaman was his free-flowing self once he got his eye in and played some pleasing strokes to take the tourists home along with Babar Azam with utmost ease. Kudos to the Pakistan bowlers for setting it up with a belligerent performance. Nothing much to write about the hosts. They didn't build any partnerships and were found wanting.
It has been a crushing victory for Pakistan, their biggest ever win in terms of balls remaining. With that, they have sealed the 5-match ODI series here itself. After bowling out Zimbabwe for their lowest total at Bulawayo, 67 to be precise, it was always going to be a formality for the visitors to chase it down. Blessing Muzarabani and Richard Ngarava were on the money initially with the former sending Imam-ul-Haq back on the first ball.
9.5
R Ngarava to F Zaman, FOUR! And that's the game! Fakhar Zaman finishes things off with a superb boundary. Flicks the ball firmly through the mid-wicket region to send it across the fence for a boundary. A crushing victory, PAKISTAN WIN BY 9 WICKETS, WITH 241 BALLS TO SPARE!
9.4
R Ngarava to F Zaman, Misfield and FOUR! Should have been two, but Blessing gifts a couple more. Short ball, Zaman pulls it through mid-wicket. Muzarabani out in the deep moves to his right, gets low to stop it but lets it through him for a boundary.
9.3
R Ngarava to F Zaman, FOUR! Back of a length on off, Fakhar Zaman swings across the line and pulls it from the inner half through backward square leg. Boundary.
9.2
R Ngarava to B Azam, Slaps the cut behind point, towards third man and jogs to the other end to complete a single.
9.1
R Ngarava to B Azam, Thrown out wide outside off, Azam attempts to reach out for it but misses.

Over 9 Pakistan 56/1/No

8.6
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, Fuller in length on off, a positive punch to covers, but it's straight to the fielder. Just 12 needed for Pakistan to win this game and the series.
8.6
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, Wide! Blessing hurls it fine down the leg side, the umpire signals wide.
8.5
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, FOUR! Zaman wants to waste no time in putting this game to bed. Finds the boundary line for the fourth time in this over. Back of a length outside off, he stands tall this time and cracks it through point on this occasion.
8.4
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, FOUR! Third of the over. A little too full on off, angling away, Zaman is loving this. He plants his front foot forward and drills it straight back down the ground.
8.3
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, Fullish length delivery outside off, played to covers for nothing.
8.2
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, FOUR! Consecutive boundaries for Zaman! Has room offered to him outside off, he stands tall and goes up and over point. Third man tried cutting it off but failed in his attempt to do so.
8.1
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, FOUR! A little bit of width and that's all Zaman needs to put it away. On a length, outside off, the left-hander smashes it through the gap in the covers, leaving the fielders with no chance to stop it.

Over 8 Pakistan 39/1/No

7.6
R Ngarava to B Azam, Short and wide, it's smacked right off the middle, but straight to the cover fielder.
7.6
R Ngarava to B Azam, Wide! Back of a length down the leg side, wide signalled. Which is a bit strange given there was some noise as the ball went past Babar on his attempted flick shot. Not sure what happened there.
7.5
R Ngarava to B Azam, Offers a firm punch from the back foot to the man positioned at mid off.
7.4
R Ngarava to B Azam, Back of a length on middle, tamely pulled along the ground in front of square leg.
7.3
R Ngarava to B Azam, Full in length outside off, Babar defends it off the outer half to point.
7.2
R Ngarava to B Azam, Back of a length shaping away, outside off, punched softly in front of cover.
7.1
R Ngarava to F Zaman, Marginally ahead of a length, on middle and off, works it off the inner half in front of square leg. Quick single results.

Over 7 Pakistan 37/1/No

6.6
B Muzarabani to B Azam, Punched off the back foot by the batsman.
6.5
B Muzarabani to B Azam, FOUR! All about the timing on that! Nicely done. Angling in on a length on the pads, Azam flicks it elegantly past the diving square leg fielder for a boundary.
6.4
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, Uses the angle and dabs it with an open face towards point for a run.
6.3
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, Darts it on the hips, with a little swivel Zaman pulls it to fine leg. The fielder there is a bit sloppy to get down, so the batsmen take two.
6.2
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, Top edge but it's safe! Back of a length on middle, Zaman looks to pull but edges it high over the keeper's head. Falls safely in the fine leg region and comes back for the second.
6.1
B Muzarabani to F Zaman, Full and swinging away outside off, Fakhar drives it to mid off.

Over 6 Pakistan 28/1/No

5.6
R Ngarava to B Azam, Short of a good length on off, a front foot slap-pull from Babar Azam right back at the bowler. Just 40 away from a win now, Pakistan.
5.5
R Ngarava to B Azam, A bit wider outside off, pushed away for nothing.
5.4
R Ngarava to B Azam, Positions himself perfectly behind the line and guards it out.
5.3
R Ngarava to B Azam, FOUR! Third of the innings. Seems this Pakistan pair has found its rhythm. Back of a length outside off, Babar cracks it square through point. Beats the fielder and finds the fence with ease.
5.2
R Ngarava to F Zaman, Outside off on a length, dabbed to point with an open face for a quick one.
5.1
R Ngarava to F Zaman, FOUR! Short but it's not short enough. Sits up nicely for an in-form Fakhar Zaman as he swivels and pulls it powerfully through square leg along the turf. Superb shot. Second boundary of the innings.
