Pakistan vs. Zimbabwe - Second ODI

Zim Downed Again

Nasir Jamshed continued his impressive start in international cricket with a well-crafted 74 as Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by five wickets in Hyderabad on Thursday.

Jamshed hit a half-century as the hosts won the opening encounter on Monday and followed it up with another vital knock against a Zimbabwe side who were more competitive than they were in Karachi.

The tourists made 238 for eight from their 50 overs - Hamilton Masakadza hitting 87 and captain Tatenda Taibu 81 - but could not defend that total as Pakistan cruised home with 22 balls to spare, The Highlights became The Awesome 43 of Shahid Afridi which led the way to Victory of Pakistan and Sohail Tanvir getting Man of the match for 34-4.

Well, This match was really a treat for us, The Hyderabadi residents. It was nice and cheesy match. PCB has promised us to get another match hosted by Hyderabad. Three Cheers for PCB ! :)
