Match Ended   
137/2 (15.1/20)
134/7 (20.0/20)
Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by 8 wickets
For his unbeaten 66, HAIDER ALI has been named as the MAN OF THE MATCH! That's it from this game, then! Pakistan have been dominant and have dismantled Zimbabwe in this game and have won the T20I series as they are leading the 3-match series 2-0. The action contines as the third and final T20I is on Tuesday, 10th November, 2020. The game will begin at 1530 local (1030 GMT). We look forward to your company for that game. Until then, cheers.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan won the toss and decided to bowl first and it proved to be a great decision. They bundled out Zimbabwe to a mere total of 134, which was below par. It was due to the exploits by Ryan Burl that Zimbabwe crossed the 130-run mark. Haris Rauf and Usman Qadir were the pick of the lot for Pakistan, as they both picked up 3 wickets each. Overall, a very good display by Pakistan and Babar Azam will be a happy captain with this show.
There is not much to discuss in regard to the bowling by Zimbabwe. Defending a small total of 135 was always going to be hard. Only Blessing Muzarabani was in the wickets column for Zimbabwe, while none of the other bowlers stepped up.
Chasing a total of 135 was not going to be hard for Pakistan but they got off to a bad start as they lost Fakhar Zaman right in the start. It was then the duo of Babar Azam and Haider Ali who did well to stitch a partnership of 100-plus runs to make sure that there are no twists in this tale. Both of them also scored half centuries in the process. Azam fell towards the end but by then, the game was already done and dusted.
This has been a very comprehensive show by Pakistan. They were right on the money with the ball and continued that same effort with the bat and have ensured that they wrap this 3 match-series by winning the first two games. A very well deserved victory for the Men in Green.
