Zimbabwe thrash Pakistan batting lineup while chasing a 119-run target in the second T20!

This is the first time in more than 5 years when Pakistan has been bowled out for less than 100 in a T20I. The last such occasion was in February 2016 v India at Dhaka.

119 is now the new lowest target that the green shirts have failed to chase in a T20I. The previous was 128 in a match against Australia in 2010.

Captain Babar Azam remained the top scorer for the visiting side, making 41 off 45 balls, while Danish Aziz contributed another 22 runs from 24 balls.

Mohammad Rizwan was the only other player to reach a double-digit score, who managed to put 13 runs on 18 balls.

Meanwhile disappointed Pakistani cricket fans took to social media to extend their criticism over the national team’s poor performance.
