Australia smashed by Pakistan in Twenty20 tri-series worldwide

As it so often happens, Sarfraz Ahmed, the Pakistan captain, kept his composure to make an unbeaten 38 as Pakistan walked what seemed a potentially hard chase at one point, with five balls to spare and seven wickets in hand.

Mire struck 94, the highest score by a Zimbabwean in a T20 worldwide, but Zimbabwe's 162/4 was not enough to overcome the world's top-ranked T20 global side.

The left-hand batsman said that coming to Zimbabwe has made a lot of difference for the team in terms of environment and they have come here with a lot of confidence.

"We look forward to the next game, we don't get to play a lot of global cricket and Friday's match is very important for us even though we have failed to qualify". Pakistan began the daunting chase in the worst possible manner anyway, losing two wickets in the opening over - to Glenn Maxwell, of all people.

Fakhar Zaman set the ball rolling for Pakistan as they went after left-arm spinner Tendai Chisoro, who kept bowling darts in the Powerplay that produced 56.

Mixing aggression with an ability to manoeuvre the ball around the field, he cracked four fours and a six. "Glad he did well", Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said.

The last time when both France and Belgium reached the FIFA World Cup semi-final in the same edition was in 1986. While Belgium lead the way with 14 goals in this World Cup , France have managed eight in their five matches.

Executing his attacking strokes perfectly, Sarfraz found the gaps and the boundaries whenever they were needed.

On Monday, the Baggy greens had defeated the highest-ranked T20 side Pakistan by posting a nine-wicket victory at the same venue. With 4 runs needed from the final over, it was also the shot he used to end the game, gliding seamer Christopher Mpofu to the third man boundary.

On Tuesday, Solomon Mire was most vocal about the pain of seeing Zimbabwe fans turn against their own side and cheer for Australia in their 100-run hammering.

The previous day, Mire had talked about Zimbabwe batters getting the starts and failing to cash in. Four wickets fell for 26 runs in their last three overs as the innings spluttered and stalled, and they ended up with 183 when 200 had seemed possible at one stage.

"We were expecting 130 to 140 on this pitch, but Mire played a very good innings", said Zaman.

Both Pakistan and Australia have won three of the four games in the triangular series so far.
