Pakistan have brought upon themselves a lot of trouble early in their innings as they try to chase down the target of 277 set by Zimbabwe in the second One-Day International (ODI) at Harare. Pakistan have already lost openers Azhar Ali and Bilal Asif for scores of one and a duck respectively, while No. 4 Asad Shafiq has lost his wicket for one run off six balls. So far, only Mohammad Hafeez has shown promise to bat longer. SCORECARD: Zimbabwe vs Pakistan 2015, 2nd T20I at Harare

Two of the wickets were taken by Tinashe Panyangara, while Luke Jongwe chipped in with the wicket of Shafiq. The bowlers displayed accuracy and got good seam movement, which caused evident troubles for the batsmen. The new man in is Shoaib Malik and he will aim to stabilise things with Mohammad Hafeez.

Earlier, Zimbabwe were helped on to a competitive score primarily due to a diligent knock by opener Chamu Chibhabha who anchored the innings with a hard-worked 90. His efforts were consolidated by skipper Elton Chigumbura and Sikandar Raza who gave impetus to the innings in the finishing overs with some lusty big hits. Chigumbura scored 67 off 55 balls, while Raza scored 32 off 21 balls. Wahab Riaz bowled well and took four wickets but conceded 63 runs.
