Sikandar Raza missed a hat-trick, match turned
Chasing the target of 131 runs, Pakistan’s team also could hardly achieve it. By 88 runs, half the team had returned. Captain Babar Azam once again flopped and could only score 4 runs. 14 runs came off the bat of Mohammad Rizwan. Sikandar Raza thrilled the match by taking wickets off two consecutive balls. Shadab Khan was caught on the fourth ball of the 14th over and then made a sudden stir by lbw Haider Ali on the next ball.
Shan Masood, who stood against India, again took up the fleet to cross the team’s line. Wickets kept falling at one end and on the other side he kept the front. Masood was dismissed after scoring 44 runs and the match got stuck. In the end, the dismissal of Mohammad Nawaz completely changed the match and Pakistan’s team got defeated in the second match in a row.
Zimbabwe’s innings shattered after a great start

Ervin got out for 17 and Madhevere scored 19 runs. After this there was another blow. From here the innings seemed to falter and Zimbabwe’s team lost three wickets on the score of 95 and from here they gave a chance to hold Pakistan in the match.
