Pakistan's comeback was nearly complete, and with the umpires not giving advanced warning, the visitors had every right to feel aggrieved. Here's everything you need to know about the third and final ODI between these two teams. Date: Monday, October 5 Time: a. CAT Venue: Harare Sports Club, Zimbabwe Preview Zimbabwe's win on Saturday was well deserved after a fantastic performance from their bowlers, but in light of the way the match ended, fans and pundits alike were obviously disappointed.
Richard Ngarava to Fakhar Zaman. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. And that is that.
Fakhar finds the gap and finishes unbeaten on 43 not out with Babar at the other end on Pakistan complete a very comprehensive victory by nine wickets and go up in the series with two games to play. The one shining light for the home team was the superb delivery which Blessing Muzarabani delivered with his first ball but from then on it was a walk in the park for Pakistan.
One day off for the two teams before they are back here for the fourth ODI. It wouldn't surprise me to see a few changes made by both teams.
See you then. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Muzarabani.
The fielding kind of sums up Zimbabwe's day. Not great. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.
It seems as though Fakhar has decided enough is enough. Hacked across the line slightly agriculturally but effective.
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Muzarabani. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Murray.
Power Play Fielding.
Bowler: Blessing Muzarabani.
