'Shameful ...' - Shoaib Akhtar lost to Pakistan after a super over defeat against Zimbabwe

Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar defeated Zimbabwe in the Super Over in Rawalpindi to defeat the Pakistan cricket team, while the three-match ODI series ended 2-1 in favor of the hosts. Describing the defeat as shameful, Akhtar said that if Pakistan wanted to avoid becoming history, Pakistan cricket would have to be progressive, while the Babar Azam-led organization was not an "expression".

In the contract game, Burzang Mazarbani scored four runs for just two runs when they took two wickets and ended Pakistan's innings in the super over. Zimbabwe took just three deliveries to complete the task and end the ODI series.

 

Akhtar tweeted, "Shameful. Losing to Zimbabwe is a problem. You lose some, you win some but you have to be progressive. We didn't express ourselves. Change your mindset before it becomes history." Akhtar tweeted.

 

Zimbabwe scored 278-6 in 50 overs for Sean Williams, who, like other batsmen Brendon Taylor shared a great partnership with Vivo. For Pakistan, Mohammad Hasnain took five wickets which was a great game for the youngster.

 

Chasing 279, Pakistan were 88-5 before Babar Azam started a crucial partnership with Khushdal Shah before joining another 100-run partnership with Wahab Riaz.

 

However, with two boundaries in the 50th over, Mohammad Musa ended the match in a draw and took it to a super over.

 
Score in short:

 

Zimbabwe 278 for six in 50 overs (Sean Williams 118 not out, Brendan Taylor 56, Sikandar Raza 45; Mohammad Hasnain 5-26)

 

Pakistan 278 for 9 in 50 overs (Babar Azam 125, Wahab Riaz 52, Khushdil Shah 33; Blessing Muzarabani 5-49, Richard Ngarava 2-62)

Result: Match tied, Zimbabwe won the Super Over
