    Haris Rauf to Wellington Masakadza. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to point for 1 run, fielded by Nawaz. A lively start to the series in Harare. Zimbabwe got themselves into some good positions chasing 150 but lost some wickets to rash shots in the face of quality bowling from Usman Qadir (3-29) and Muhammad Hasnain (2-27). Luke Jongwe (30 not out) was left with too much to do. Mohammad Rizwan batted superbly in the first innings, staying throughout the 20 overs for a fine 82 not out.
