Pakistan win T20 decider in Zimbabwe | Southern Cross


Pakistan have won the series-deciding Twenty20 against Zimbabwe by 24 runs after 91 not out from Mohammad Rizwan and another half-century from the prolific Babar Azam. Rizwan and skipper Babar (52) propelled Pakistan to 3-165 in 20 overs as the tourists batted first at Harare Sports Club on Sunday. Hasan Ali sealed the series 2-1 for Pakistan with 4-18 off his four overs as Zimbabwe only managed 7-141. Zimbabwe had a chance of an upset and a first-ever victory in a two-team T20 series when opener Wesley Madhevere’s 59 helped them to 1-102. But Pakistan applied the pressure at the back end of the innings and Ali ended up removing four of Zimbabwe’s top six. The win puts Pakistan on course for a highly successful tour of southern Africa after winning an ODI and T20 series in South Africa, as they end their trip with two Tests in Zimbabwe.
