Pakistan became a joke even after winning, 3-2 ahead in Zimbabwe series, Pak camp just one step away from embarrassing defeat
ZIM vs PAK: The fifth match of the 6 ODI series being played between Zimbabwe and Pakistan (ZIM vs PAK) was played yesterday. In this one-sided match, the Pakistan team defeated Zimbabwe by a huge margin of 177 runs. Playing first, Pakistan team scored 314 runs losing 6 wickets in 50 overs. In response, the entire Zimbabwe team was reduced to 137 runs. Although Zimbabwe is still 3-2 ahead in this series. If they win the last ODI, they will clinch the series which will be very embarrassing for Pakistan.
Pakistan’s victory over Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe A, led by Sean Williams, and Pakistan Shaheens, captained by Hussain Talat, took on each other in the fifth ODI in Harare yesterday. The toss was won by Zimbabwe A and they decided to bowl first. Put in to bat first, Pakistan Shaheen’s got off to a great start with their top three batsmen batting brilliantly. Imran Butt (64), Hasabullah Khan (62), Omair Yusuf (89) took the team to 314.
Chasing the target, Zimbabwe got off to a very poor start as they kept losing wickets one after the other. From their side, only Clive Madande could spend some time at the crease and stand up to the Pakistani bowlers. Everyone laid down their weapons except him. If we talk about Pakistan’s bowling, then Dahani and Qasim Akram took three wickets each while presenting the sample of excellent bowling.
Zimbabwe still ahead in the series
Pakistan Shaheens beat Zimbabwe yesterday by a huge margin. However, despite this, he is 2-3 behind in the series. In such a situation, if Zimbabwe finally defeats them in the ODI match, then they will capture the series 3-2. If this happens then it will be a matter of great shame for Pakistan cricket. On the other hand, Zimbabwe will get a lot of encouragement from this and their confidence will increase before this year’s World Cup.
