Brief Scores: Pakistan 399/1 in 50 overs (Fakhar Zaman 210*, Imam-ul-Haq 113; Wellington Masakadza 1-78) beat Zimbabwe 155 in 42.4 overs (Donald Tiripano 44; Shadab Khan 4-28) by 244 runs
“Thanks to almighty. That’s what we need batting first. Imam and Fakhar gave us a solid platform. It’s good that our top order batsmen are getting runs. When we go to field, our target was to bowl them under 160 and we executed our plans. We will try our level best to win the next game,” Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan captain.
“Never really in the game, they put us under pressure from ball one. Fakhar played exceptionally well and we found it difficult to rein him in. We fell way short in all three departments today. It’s always going to be difficult chasing 400, you have to go for your shots from ball one and that’s always not easy. Hope we can turn up on Sunday and play better than we did today,” Hamilton Masakadza, the Zimbabwean skipper.
