Scorer: Ranjith P | Commentator: Shashank Kishore

Thanks for joining us today. I'll be back to keep you company for Pakistan-Australia. Hope to see you then. Cheers

"Bowling not upto the mark," says Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed. "They have to work hard."

Solomon Mire is the Player of the Match for his 63-ball 94

On Tuesday, Solomon Mire was most vocal about the pain of seeing Zimbabwean fans turn against their own side and cheer for Australia, who hammered them by 100 runs. On Wednesday, he batted like a man desperate to woo them back in a heroic performance. He smashed 94 off 63 balls - Zimbabwe's highest individual T20I score - but it wasn't enough to see his side to victory. This meant Zimbabwe were also knocked out of the tri-series with one game to play.

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 difficult chase at one point with five balls to spare and seven wickets in hand. Sarfraz put together 43 with Talat Ali,, who made 44 from No. 3, to do a bulk of the work as the No. 1 side set up a finale with Australia.

Mpofu to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR runs, it's all over. Game, set and match. Just a hint of width outside off, Sarfraz uses the pace to steer this to the third man boundary. Zimbabwe knocked out, Pakistan to meet Australia in the final. But before that, we will have two dead rubber league games to finish.

END OF OVER:
19 | 10 Runs | PAK: 159/3 (4 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 8.36, RRR: 4.00)

Muzarabani to Shoaib Malik, no run, swing and a miss. Length outside off, he tried to wallop this to glory, not to be. Could only connect the hazy winter air

Muzarabani to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, makes room and eases this length delivery into the cover region

Muzarabani to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR runs, belts this full toss to the sweeper cover fence. Too easy, this is just the delivery you don't want to be bowling at this time.

Muzarabani to Sarfraz Ahmed, 2 runs, full and straight on middle from wide of the crease, squeezed to long-on

Muzarabani to Sarfraz Ahmed, 2 runs, right into the blockhole, squeezed across the line towards midwicket, no more than inside the 30 yard ring but they still steal two. Poor from Zimbabwe, got to be more agile than that
