Zimbabwe v Pakistan 2nd ODI

Unbelivable scenes were witnessed at Harare sports club absolutely unprofessional behavior by the umpires Ruchira Palliyaguruge and Jeremiah Matibiri to take the players off with the sun setting, the light only got worse, but after all it is a batting side decision weather to continue or not and in a situation where match was really favoring Pakistan, Shoaib Malik was more than willing to chase the target when the equation was 21 of 12 balls thanks to Malik who master minded the chase along with Aamer Yamin  which was looking rather slim when Pakistan slumped to 76 for 6.If the match would have continued Malik could have scored a century which would have been his 9th and he could also become the first Pakistani No. 5 centurion batsman in a run chase.

Zimbabwe looked a different batting unit to the one that was bowled out for 128, Chigumbura played a great hand with the bat for Zimbabwe, his 55-ball 67 and a patient 90 by Chamu Chibhabha lifted Zimbabwe to 276 for 6 which was enough to give host a rare ODI victory.

Zimbabwe won by 5 runs (D/L method)
