Azhar Ali has scored a half century off 51 balls against Zimbabwe in the second One-Day International (ODI) at Lahore. So far he has held the Pakistan innings together and being the set batsman he would like to translate his fifty in a hundred. He took his time to settle initially but has played quite calmly ever since. LIVE UPDATES: Pakistan vs Zimbabwe 2015, 2nd ODI at Lahore

Earlier, Zimbabwe posted 268 for seven in their 50 overs on the back of big scores from Chibhabha (99) and Sikandar Raza (100*). Yasir Shah was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan as he took two crucial wickets and conceded just 40 runs in his 10 overs. Zimbabwe’s bowling has been ordinary in the series and they’ll need to step up in this match. Live Scorecard: Pakistan vs Zimbabwe 2015, 2nd ODI at Lahore
