Zimbabwe rode on a magnificent century from Sean Williams and a splendid bowling performance by Blessing Muzarabani to win the third and final ODI in Rawalpindi. They, however, lost the ODI series 2-1.

The star performer of the day was their pacer Blessing Muzarabani who finished with five wickets in the game and took another two in the Super Over to lead the team to victory.

Zimbabwe won the toss and after being down at 22-3, they were brought back into the game thanks to a partnership between Seam Williams and Brendan Taylor, who stitched together a 84-run partnership. Taylor was dismissed by Hasnain after a 56 run innings in 68 balls.

Williams, however, continued and hit an unbeaten 118 of 135 balls to take his team to an above par score of 278-6 in 50 overs.

Pakistan pacer Mohammad Hasnain was splendid and finished with a five-wicket haul.

Chasing 279 for victory, Pakistan were down to 151-6 when the skipper Babar Azam held fort and stitched up a 100-run partnership with Wahab Riaz.

But the game changed in the 49th over, bowled by Muzarabani where Shaheen Afridi and Babar Azam were dismissed off successive balls, and Pakistan needed 13 off the last over.

With two boundaries in the 50th over, Mohammad Musa tied the game and took it to a Super Over.

Blessing Muzarabani scalped two wickets off 4 balls in the Super Over as Pakistan scored only 2 runs off the lanky speedster.
