Zimbabwe v Pakistan, 2nd ODI, Harare

Hafeez, Junaid Helps Square Series

Harare: Mohammad Hafeez (136*) and Junaid Khan (4-14) star as Pakistan win by 90 runs and square series against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club on Thursday.

Mohammad Hafeez is the Man of the Match.

One stage Zimbabwe reached 200 within 39 overs but a late collapse hurt the Zimbabweans.

They looked good to take the fight to the Pakistan camp when Taylor and Waller were batting together. Taylor was dismissed by Ajmal and Waller was castled by Junaid. The tail fell apart and the visitors completed a crushing victory.

Earlier,  Mohammad Hafeez hit an unbeaten century and anchored Pakistan to a competitive 299-4.

Hafeez's 136 off 130 balls included nine four and five sixes and he fell only three runs short of career-best unbeaten 139, which came against Zimbabwe two years ago.

After being put in to bat, Pakistan struggled to 84-3 before Hafeez and left-handed Umar Amin (59) took charge with a 129-run stand off 126 balls against some wayward bowling. Shahid Afridi (39 not out in 23 balls with 3 sixes) added 86 off 45 deliveries with Hafeez.

Zimbabwe had shocked Pakistan on Tuesday with a seven-wicket win in the first ODI of the three-match series _ the African nation's first ODI win in a bilateral series against Pakistanis in 15 years.

Earlier, Zimbabwe have won the toss and have opted to field.

Zimbabwe are unchanged. Haris Sohail is out, Abdur Rehman is in Pakistan squad.
