The events that took place in Perth will be remembered for a very long time. The valiant actions of Sikandar Raza result in a significant setback for Pakistan. The guys dressed in green were trying to score only 131, but they were unsuccessful.
After Pakistan was defeated by Zimbabwe by a score of 1 run, the path forward for Babar Azam and the rest of the team is likely to get more challenging in the competition.
Raza, a veteran player for Zimbabwe, was sensational with the ball in hand. He reported scores of three for twenty-five that undeniably altered the results of the game.
As a result of this loss, the discussion on Pakistan’s fragile middle order is quite likely to get more heated. The first two batsmen, Babar and Rizwan, were out early once again, and the batters who came after them gave it their all, but they were unable to find a solution to Zimbabwe’s outstanding bowling assault.
Shan Masood must be feeling terrible right now since he and Shadab Khan put up a 50-run partnership, but as soon as Raza broke that partnership, Pakistan lost any chance of winning the match. Muhammad Nawaz and Mohammad Wasim Jr., along with others, gave it their all to finish it off for their side, but they fell short by one run.
As a result of this victory, Zimbabwe has moved up to the third slot on the points table for Group 2, while Pakistan continues to struggle at the bottom of the table with 0 points.
Indian cricketer Amit Mishra criticised and took a dio=g at the Pakistan team after the loss. He tweeted: “It’s not an upset. It was always Zimbabwe’s match. Bad day for neighbours.”
