November 08, 2020: Pakistan VS Zimbabwe 2nd T20 International
Another amazing performance by Pakistan who has been dominant and knocked off Zimbabwe by 8 wickets in the second Twenty20 Internationals at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. The team dismantled Zimbabwe and have won the Twenty20 International series having a lead of 2-0. Usman Qadir helped the team to seal the series with his 3 middle-over wickets.
Zimbabwe lost its 14th encounter against Pakistan in the T20 International games. However, the third and last match of the 3 match series is still to come in action on November 10, 2020. Not much excitement to accept since Pakistan has wrapped up the series at the earliest moment but will be fun to watch amazing batsmen Azam and Ali play.
Pakistan VS Zimbabwe 2nd T20 International Innings Highlights:
Pakistan won the toss and decided to bowl first. Well, it seems a bit obvious for Pakistan Captain Babar Azam that his team can chase any score like a pro. Chasing the target seems to be the right decision. Pakistan Bowlers thrashed Zimbabwe batsman and restrict them to 134 runs. A cakewalk for Pakistan to chase.
The efforts of Pakistan bowlers are of the highest appreciation who bundled up Zimbabwe to a below-par score. The leg-spinner Usman Qadir along with Haris Rauf has picked up 3 wickets each which lowered the morale of Team Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe managed to reach up to this score due to the consistent efforts of Ryan Burl. On the other hand, defending such a minimal score is always a tough task for any team. Only Muzarabani managed to take down a few wickets. A very disappointing performance from Chamu Chibhabha’s side. Because the chase was summed up with a four and almost five overs to spare.
It’s always mesmerizing to watch Babar Azam bat on the fields, but in the 2nd T20 International, fans can’t set their eyes off of Haider Ali. Both Ali and Azam secured their T20I half centuries, 66 and 51 runs respectively. However, Haider Ali scored his 2nd T20 International century. He receives the ‘Man of the Match’ award.
