The Pakistan-Pacific deadline is fixed with Australia
Zimbabwe beat Zimbabwe from the Twenty 20 Trivia Cup in Harare on Wednesday, defeating the host nation by seven vickets with five of them. Capt. Sarfraz Ahmed saw his team with an undefeated 38, which means that the Zimbabwean all-rounder Solomon Mire's effort was in vain at the start of the team.
Pakistan's pursuit was quickly started by the kick-off event. Hari's Sohail and Fakhar Zaman took 56 from Power Plays, but Sohail made it soon after. As Zaman Mire took off for 47 skis, Pakistan needed more than eight races and more of the last eight overs, but Sarfraz innings of quiet accuracy kept them up at the question time.
Sarfraz, with his belated style, showed a particularly skilful touches by breaking the borders of the Tendai Chisoro and Wellington Masakadza with the blow. On Thursday Pakistan will meet Australia to determine the winners of the show. PAKISTISTAN XI: Sharfraz Ahmed (c/wk), Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Hussain Talat, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir.

Zimbabwe defeated Pakistan by 7 Vickets
Report, Match 3: Australia Capt. Aaron Finch indulged in his record-breaking inning against Zimbabwe and said it was "up there" as one of the best inns he had ever had. In 172 Finch beat his own Twenty20 Internationals number one. With 223 Finch and D'Arcy Short set another global gold medal.
The first six were won in the 4th half of the mornings, and the third was half a hundred years with 22 balls - his quickest in Twenty 20s. The Australians scored 75 points in power play, with Finch taking the lion's share, while D'Arcy Short was satisfied with handing the goal over to his great opponent.
At the end of June 14 Finch delivered his second T20I Hundred with only 50 shipments. His fifteenth -four lunches later - took Australia's result to 200, and he then pulled over 150 into the low centre with one blow. In 2013, he broke the 156-point global championship track he set against England with his 9th six points.
Shortly, Blessing Muzarabani swung over the line to be captured for 46, while Finch dropped in the play-off. "I thought he'd take a broad, slow shot, so I came back," Finch said. Three for 12 when Australia set a last recorded against the Zimbabweans and the host nation dropped back to their biggest loss ever in T20Is.
After a catastrophic England trip, Australia have now won two matches at Trob, and Finch proposed that the wallpaper shift and the opponents would have made a big deal of a difference. "The atmosphere at the camps was always very upbeat and I think we gained the trust we had, but probably with a little more self-assurance in a new competition against two teams we hadn't been playing for a while in comparison to a side that prevailed in Australia last sommer and then did it again.
On Thursday Australia takes on Pakistan, and Finch insists that there is no room for self-satisfaction.
