Pakistan Thrash Zimbabwe By 9 Wickets, Lead Series 3-0

Faheem Ashraf bagged five Wickets as Pakistan thrash Zimbabwe by nine wickets in third One Day International at Bulawayo.

Pakistan take an unassailable 3-0 lead in five Match Series, PTV Sports telecast the match Live.

Earlier, Zimbabwe made four changes to the side that lost by nine Wickets two days ago but clearly it did not have the desired affect as they folded for just 67 runs.

Zimbabwe opted to bat but Usman Khan struck in the second over by removing debutant opener Prince Masvaure and from there on it was all down hill for Zimbabwe. Green Shirts ramped up the pressure by taking Wickets at Regular intervals with Faheem being the real aggressor. Faheem finished with career best 5 for 22, the third-best figures by any Pakistani bowler against Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe's Demolition was further hastened by Junaid Khan's two and one Wicket each by Shadab Khan and Yasir Shah.

Pakistan after losing Imam-ul-Haq early on, romped to the target in 9.5 overs for the loss of one Wicket.

Fakhar Zaman remained not out on 43 and so was Babar Azam on 19.

Faheem was declared Man of the Match for his five Wickets.
