Tanvir to Waller. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Shehzad. So thats the end of the game. Pakistan coasted in the end, with Zimbabwe falling short on the firepower required to come close to the target. Positive performances in the game from members of both sides. Pakistan will be happy to have come out on top though they will have expected more runs. Zimbabwe will hope for a better fielding in the second game tomorrow and slightly more impotus from their batsmen. Pakistan lead the series 1-0.
