Zimbabwe bowlers could not restrict Pakistan under 300 as they let the partnership between Fawad Alam and Rizwan grow big.

On Day 3, they wrapped up the Pakistan innings quickly but they got a lead of 250 runs. It was then going to be difficult for Zimbabwe to survive for two days atleast. Stay tuned for the presentation...

Azhar Ali started well but played a loose shot to lose his wicket in the process. Babar Azam got out for a golden duck as he fell in the trap set by Zimbabwe. Imran Butt was looking good for his century but got out for 91. From 226/4, Pakistan got a brilliant partnership between Fawad Alam and Mohammad Rizwan. Rizwan was playing well but he got out for 45. Alam scored a brilliant hundred. He was supported well by Hasan Ali on Day 2 in the final session. On Day 3, Hasan Ali could not last longer as he lost his wicket to Blessing Muzarabani. The tail did not wag for long and Pakistan were bowled out for 426.
Pakistan bowlers bowled well in the first innings also. Hasan Ali and Afridi took 4 wickets each and Nauman Ali took a solitary wicket. The bowlers kept it tight and did not let Zimbabwe batsmen score freely. Faheem Ashraf went wicketless in that innings.
Coming to Zimbabwe, their batsmen started well in the second innings but lost wickets at regular intervals. Musakanda was playing well but lost his wicket due to a suicidal run out where the third run was not required. Brendan Taylor started well and played his shots but lost his wicket in the process. He played risky shots and that led to his downfall. Roy Kaia got out for a duck. Regis Chakabva tried to stay longer but lost partners at the other end.
