Mohammad Hafeez (136 not out) and Junaid Khan (four for 15) helped Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by 90 runs in the second One-Day International (ODI) at the Harare Sports Club on Thursday which now levels the series 1-1.

Junaid’s picked up four-for which ended the promising run-chase from Zimbabwe. The last six Zimbabwean wickets fell for a mere nine runs in a space of 22 deliveries. Brendan Taylor’s 79 kept the hopes of the Zimbabwean run-chase alive but as soon as he was dismissed caught by Mohammad Irfan off Saeed Ajmal the home team meekly surrendered.

Zimbabwe lost three quick wickets in pursuit of 300. Vusi Sibanda fell trying to top-edge Irfan that landed in wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed’s gloves. That was the major jolt since the Zimbabwe opening stands have been enterprising. Hamilton Masakadza looked in positive touch smashing five boundaries the feature being the smashing drives off Irfan. Masakadza’s cameo was ended by Junaid’s delivery that breached the Zimbabwe opener’s off-stump. Timycen Maruma was run-out taking a risky run thus ending his innings prematurely.

Taylor kept the home side in the hunt with his positive approach. He added 70 with Sean Williams before the latter was dismissed in an attempt to charge Ajmal. He missed the ball and was stumped by wicket-keepr Sarfaraz. Taylor and Malcolm Waller added 65 for the fifth wicket before the calamitous collapse was triggered. First Taylor was dismissed, followed by Waller off the next delivery by Junaid. Elton Chigumbura out leg-before off the first delivery. After that quick flurry of wickets Zimbabwe lost the plot and were soon bowled out.

Earlier Mohammad Hafeez scored 136 off 133 deliveries to take Pakistan to a challenging total of 299 for four. Umar Amin scored a half-century while a late order blitz from Shahid Afridi helped the visitors post a total which in the end was imposing one for the home team to chase.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 299 for 4 in 50 overs (Mohammad Hafeez 136*, Umar Amin 59; Brian Vitori 2 for 68)
beat Zimbabwe 209 in 42.4 overs (Brendan Taylor 79, Malcolm Waller 40; Junaid Khan 4 for 15) by 90 runs.
