Zaman’s career-best 73 sparks Pakistan against Australia

PAK vs ZIM Live Score

Pakistan will face Australia to decide the series' victor on Thursday, though not before Australia play two other inconsequential matches. "We don't get too many global games so every game is important" - Hamilton Masakadza, Zimbabwe captain.

Zimbabwe were 82-1 in the 12th over when Shadab removed Hamilton Masakadza, playing his first global for two years, but Mire continued to motor, taking his tally of maximums to six before he pulled Talat to Shadab at deep midwicket in the penultimate over to miss out a on a hundred.

The quick dismissal of captain Sarfraz Ahmed, edging a Tye legcutter into the hands of wicketkeeper Alex Carey, put a further dent in Pakistan's batting, but the experienced Shoaib Malik ensured that the runs kept flowing.

After losing five of their best T20 players due to the financial crisis, Zimbabwe tried different combinations but it didn't help them achieve the desired results. If Talat is dropped, 22-year-old Sahibzada Farhan could be in line to make a Pakistan debut though Sarfraz has the option of turning to the more experienced Haris Sohail.

Marcus Stoinis and Ashton Agar guided Australia home.

Aaron Finch's team posted a competitive total of 8-183 at Harare Sports Club and looked on track for a memorable victory by taking two wickets in the first over. The tipping point seemed to come in the 11th over, in which Jack Wildermuth, somewhat obsessed with the extreme off-side field he had set Fakhar, bowled four wides, and went for 16 in all.

Australia seemed to be not in the right form which was surprising after their record win against Zimbabwe.

Andrew Tye was again the pick of the Australian bowlers with figures of 3-28 - his fourth straight three-wicket haul.

Had Australia won this contest, they would have displaced Pakistan from the perch of the ICC T20 rankings. None of the batsman bar the top two got to 20.

The Aussies bounced back from limited-overs humiliation in England by beating Pakistan and then Zimbabwe in Harare, but they fell well short of a third win. When Amir returned in the death overs, he was a class above the batsmen Australia were counting on to propel them towards 200.
