Pakistan suffer shock defeat to Zimbabwe in first ODI

A sturdy 85 from Hamilton Masakadza and a crucial late cameo from Sean Williams saw Zimbabwe record their first one-day win over Pakistan since 1998.

Chasing 245 in the first one-day international of a three-match series on Tuesday, Masakadza laid the platform before Williams finished the job with an unbeaten 39 from 23 deliveries as Zimbabwe won by seven wickets with 10 balls to spare. 

Although Misbah-ul-Haq held the Pakistan innings together in his, he was left to lament his decision to bat first at a venue where the pitch generally improves as the day goes on.
