Pakistan wanted to save time. Zimbabwe wanted to postpone the hour that would have marked the end of the defeated tour. The battle of this hour was fought by both of them on theirown.In any case, Pakistan won, but the Zimbabwean team made up for their shortcomings this month, at least the match lasted for the fourth day. Although the game of the fourth dayended in twenty minutes, the date of defeat was different anyway.Instead, it is not a satisfying thing in itself. Because if the evening sun had stayed onthe horizon for a while and the shadows had not been so long, Babar Azam's dressing room would not have had to spend another night waiting for victory. The opportunity to return for Eid with the trophy would have been given a day earlier.
Pakistan vs Zimbabwe: Babar Azam star is bright and so is Pakistan
Although it is difficult to say whether the Zimbabwean batting was weaker than Pakistan's or the Pakistani bowler Blessing turned out to be better than the friends of Mazarbani, the aspirations of the parties are the same in this defeat package.
Before this big innings of Abid Ali, the morale of Taylor's bowlers was low.The defensive approach of the Zimbabwean batsmen in the first innings was so extreme that it was as if they would drag the same innings till the fourth day. But when Hassan Ali's sharp line and diversity became a headache for him, the whole innings went awry. Whatever the batting line, she would have scored at least 200 runs in reply to 510. But Taylor's team could not add even one hundred and fifty runs.If there was any other team, instead of following Babar Azam, he might have thought of adding some lightning speed of one hundred, one hundred and fifty runs to his lead and would also think of a cure for the fatigue of his bowlers. But Zimbabwe's batting line was so full of fear of Pakistani bowlers' courage and skill that Babar decided to finish the story in one go.Yesterday's second Zimbabwean innings after the second T20 was the second time the team was seen counter-attacking properly. Noman Ali was targeted and Noman also fully accepted the fight. He threw the ball at the expected line of Zimbabwean batsmen and also gave them a chance to collect boundaries. But at the same time, he also threw a couple of variable balls in which all came one after the other. From the other end, Shaheen Shah Afridi came in such a rhythm that after 28 years in the history of Test cricket, three bowlers of the same team took five wickets each.
