Pakistani bowlers destroyed Zimbabwe batting line up after they opted to bat, restricting them to 129 for 9 in 20 overs.

In a way it was a repeat of what had been happening mostly in this tour. Pakistani bowlers strangulating visitor's batting line up. After Zimbabwe opted to bat, it was Usman Qadir's turn to exphysiate visitors batting line up. Six of Zimbabwe batsmen did not get to double figures and among those who did, captain Chibhabha made the most, 31 off 28. If it wasn't for Tiripano's 28 in the dying overs, Zimbabwe might have folded for something under 100. As for the wickets, they just kept falling at regular intervals with Usman claiming four and Imad two.

Pakistan romped to the target in 15.1 overs for the loss of two wickets. Fakhar Zaman 21 and Haider Ali 27 were the two wickets Pakistan lost. Abdullah Shafique 41 and Khushdil Shah 36 remained unbeaten. Usman Qadir was declared player of the match and series.
