Zimbabwe defended a meager total of 130 runs against a strong Pakistani batting line-up. Their bowling has looked sublime with Luke Jongwe, Richard Ngarava, and Blessing Muzarabani hitting hard lengths. Batting has looked solid with talismanic player Sikandar Raza leading the charge. Sean Williams has played a good supporting hand. All in all, Zimbabwe have good momentum and will fancy their chances of beating Bangladesh.

South Africa were ahead of the five-over DLS par for no wickets lost but had only faced three overs when rain ended the game against Zimbabwe. South Africa were denied a victory in their ICC T20 World Cup 2022 opener after rain ensured their shortened fixture against Zimbabwe could not be completed. After a two-hour-and-35-minute delay, the match was reduced to nine overs a side.

Zimbabwe recovered from being 19 for 4 to set South Africa a target of 80, which was then cut down to a target of 64 in seven overs after another weather interruption. South Africa were well ahead of their five-over DLS par score when the players went off for rain again, but they had only faced three overs at that point – a T20 match is only completed when both teams have faced at least five overs.

No result Zimbabwe 79 for 5 in 9 overs (Madhevere 35*, Ngidi 2-20) vs South Africa 51 for 0 in 3 overs (de Kock 47*)

Zimbabwe continues to make history in what is turning out to be an ICC T20 World Cup 2022 to remember for them as they stunned former champions Pakistan in Perth, winning by one run after successfully defending three runs from the final three balls of the match. That win keeps Zimbabwe well in the hunt for a place in the semi-finals after having already gained a fortunate point against South Africa in their opening fixture of the ‘Super 12’s which was abandoned due to rain interruptions.

Zimbabwe promised to cause as much damage as they could in the Super 12s and, two games in, they have inflicted a major blow. They defended 130 to deny Pakistan their first points and leave them at risk of not making the semi-finals, and they did in an extraordinary fashion.

After a strong start in their batting, they slipped to 95 for 7 and set Pakistan a modest target on a pitch with good bounce and a big outfield. But Zimbabwe have an understated and varied attack and they gave Pakistan’s – which Shadab Khan proudly proclaimed the best in the tournament – competition for that label. An all-round disciplined bowling effort led by Sikandar Raza (3/25) helped Zimbabwe stun Pakistan by one run in a thriller in Perth.

Zimbabwe’s pacers removed Pakistan’s openers in the first five overs before Sikandar Raza, in the form of his life, took two wickets in two balls and another in his next over to leave Pakistan on 94 for 6. Still, they should have fancied their chances. Pakistan needed 38 runs in the last five overs. Pakistan needed 11 to win off the final over of a pulsating evening, and that equation came down to three from three with the well-set Mohammad Nawaz at the crease.

But 25-year-old pacer Brad Evans produced three stunning deliveries right when it mattered. It still was at three needed off three but Brad Evans, playing his first game of this ICC T20 World Cup 2022 picked 2 scalps to flip the whole entire script.

Zimbabwe 130 for 8 (Williams 31, Wasim 4-24, Shadab 3-23) beat Pakistan 129 for 8 (Masood 44, Raza 3-25, Evans 2-25) by one run
