Pakistan thrashed Zimbabwe by 90 runs at Harare in the Second ODI to level the 3-match series. Mohammad Hafeez scripted the victory for the visitor with a 6th ODI ton while Junaid Khan and other bowlers ripped through the Zimbabwean batting line-up on a flat surface.
On Friday, West Indies lost their fourth consecutive ODI against Australia in spite of a belligerent ton from the big-hitting Kieron Pollard. Coming in after the Caribbeans found themselves in a desperate position at 17 for 3, Pollard replied with a wonderfully compiled, unbeaten 109 off 136 balls, an innings punctuated with 11 fours and two sixes.
