Pakistan vs Zimbabwe Video Highlights of Pakistan tour of Zimbabwe 2013, 2nd T20 Match on 24th August played at Harare Sports Club. PAKISTAN completed a clean sweep after registering a comfortable 19-run win over Zimbabwe in the second T20 International at Harare on Saturday.
Ahmed Shehzad, who nearly missed his maiden T20 century, scored his second consecutive fifty of the series as Pakistan bagged it 2-0. (FULL SCORECARD)
Winning the toss and putting the visitors in to bat, Zimbabwe skipper Brendan Taylor did not get the start he would have expected. After defending the first five deliveries of the first over from Prosper Utseya, Shehzad launched him for a six over long on. Three overs later, a half chance went begging when Hamilton Masakadza failed to reach the ball at slips when Nasir Jamshed slashed at a wide delivery.
It was fine display of batting by the visitors as they looked in total control after that. Shehzad took Pakistan off to a steady start as he added 36 runs for the opening wicket with opener Jamshed.
In the last over of the powerplay, Elton Chigumbura took a good running catch at mid-off to get rid of Jamshed with the score at 36.
Shehzad played a crucial role in shaping the Pakistan innings and kept the tempo going throughout. In the process, he brought up his half-century in the 14th over bowled by Shingi Masakadza.
