Pakistan pacer Hassan Ali has taken a lesson from his muscle pull which he had sustained while celebrating a wicket in his own way against Zimbabwe a few days back. However, we still got to see the 'bomb exploding' celebration, but not from Ali this time. Though, the wicket-taker was the man behind this unique celebration himself.
During the last ODI at Bulawayo, Hasan sent Hamilton Masakadza's off and middle stump on a walk. It was beautiful to watch for a fast bowler and the adrenaline rush would have been double seeing those stumps flying. But being more cautious this time, Ali didn't go with the flow instead he asked Shadab Khan to do the celebration for him. Yes, the pacer has got a substitute to celebrate.
The last ODI was won by Pakistan with a huge margin of 131 runs. However, this time Zimbabwe didn't get bowled out and scored 233 runs for the loss of 4 wickets. Chasing a huge target of 364, every Zimbabwean batsmen got a start which they failed to convert into a big innings. No batsmen could even score a half-century.
Pakistan, who whitewashed Zimbabwe 5-0, saw their openers shine with a bright performance again. Imam-Ul-Haq hit 110 off 105 balls and Fakhar Zaman scored 85 off 83 to reach the 1,000-run mark in only his 18th ODI; the fastest batsman ever to do so.
