Match Ended   
157/4 (18.5/20)
156/6 (20.0/20)
Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by 6 wickets
Right then, we are done with this one-sided match! There is no rest for the players as the next T20I is on Sunday, 8th November 2020 at 1530 local (1030 GMT). We look forward to your company. Goodbye and cheers!
Victorious skipper and also the MAN OF THE MATCH, Babar Azam says he is satisfied with the performance and enjoys his batting. Adds that he bats according to the situation. Mentions that after the last loss, this win will give them confidence. Shares that they stuck to the plans with the ball and there was some help for the bowlers. States that they want to play the right combination and they are giving opportunities to the bench strength so that they will have some experience before the T20 World Cup. Admits that they have to work on their fielding and catching.
Zimbabwe skipper, Chamu Chibhabha says that they were 20 runs short of the total they wanted. Adds that in the middle period and middle overs they need to do a lot more and credits the middle order for doing well. Praises Wesley Madhevere for batting superbly. Mentions that they pride themselves in the field and this is something to improve on as they were not up to the mark. On Madhevere, Chamu says that he is pleasing to watch, plays some beautiful shots and is a very promising youngster.
Not a lot to talk about Zimbabwe's bowling. Tendai Chisoro and Blessing Muzarabani were the only bowlers to keep things tidy but they didn't receive much support from the other bowlers. All in all, a bad day at the office for them where their batting unit also flopped. If it was not for Madhevere's knock, the visitors would not have even crossed the 150-run mark. Stay tuned for the presentation...
Zimbabwe did manage to pick a couple of wickets in the first 8 overs but never managed to put any kind of pressure. Babar Azam's presence meant that the runs kept on flowing and along with Mohammad Hafeez, he put the chase to bed with an 80-run stand. They both got out towards the end but at that time, only formalities were left in the chase.
Easy win for Pakistan, just like it was supposed to be! The target could have been tricky had they lost early wickets but Zimbabwe failed to do the early damage and the hosts got off to a flying start. It was a cruise for them from there onward.

Blessing Muzarabani To Mohammad Rizwan
NOT OUT! That's it! Pakistan win! Good length ball on the pads, Rizwan looks to swing it away but misses and gets hit on the pads. Zimbabwe appeal but nothing from the umpire as the batsmen cross. Zimbabwe take the review. The Ball Tracker rolls in and it shows that it is going down leg. PAKISTAN WIN BY 6 WICKETS.
Review time! Zimbabwe have taken a review for LBW. It is more in desperation and to delay Pakistan's victory. Looks like it is going down the leg side. Yes, it is.

Blessing Muzarabani To Fakhar Zaman
DROPPED! That would have been a stunner had Chibhabha caught it. Muzarabani angles across a back of a length ball outside off, Fakhar goes for a full-blooded drive through the line but gets a fat outside edge. It goes to the left of Chibhabha at first slip who reacts in that direction but fails to hang on to the catch. The batsmen cross.

Blessing Muzarabani To Babar Azam
Short in length and outside off, Babar guides it down to third man and takes a single.
Blessing Muzarabani will bowl from the other end. He bowled superbly in the last ODI. Can he repeat his performance here?
