Pakistan defeated Zimbabwe by eight wickets at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi to seal a whitewash in the three-game T20I series.

A less than competitive total of 129/9, Zimbabwe’s lowest of the series, saw captain Chamu Chibhabha lead the way with 31 followed by Donald Tiripano with 28.

Usman Qadir took his best T20I figures of 4/13 as Mohammed Wasim took 2/27, as Pakistan punished Zimbabwe, yet again, for choosing to bat first for the fifth consecutive time on the tour.

Pakistan then batted with Abdullah Shafique posting 41 not out on his debut and Khushdil Shah hitting 36 from 15 balls which saw the hosts chase down the target with ease and close out the win with 28 balls left.

Pakistan had won the first and second T20Is by six wickets and eight wickets respectively.

This final T20I also marked the final international game of former Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura ending a 16-year-career.
