Full scorecard

Hamilton Masakadza is the Man of the Match: "I knew that the wicket was going to get better in the afternoon. The pitch was better to bat on after the first 10 overs and we just wanted to start well and build a partnership. We were just one down when Taylor came out so there weren't really any nerves at that time."

Williams and Brendan Taylor walk back with their heads high towards the dressing room. This is a comprehensive win - by seven wickets and 10 balls to spare - after the Zimbabwe batsmen didn't handle the spinners very well in the T20s. And how they came back?! It was the opening stand of 107 and Hamilton Masakadza's 85 that kept them comfortable in the beginning and always in the hunt of this chase. Taylor at No.3 also held his nerve till the end and Williams sealed it for the hosts. This is the first time since 1998 that Zimbabwe have beaten Pakistan in an ODI. It's been nearly 15 long years since Neil Johnson's hundred led Zimbabwe to victory in Pakistan

Misbah he is the first Pakistan captain to lead in 50 successive ODIs.
