Zimbabwe U19 Collapse to Pakistan

Zimbabwe U19 were on the receiving end of another drubbing in the U19 Tri-Series in South Africa yesterday. Pakistan, batting first, reached 265/9 from their 50 overs, with James Bruce (3/64) and Luke Jongwe (3/46) putting in decent performances with the ball along the way. Requiring 5.3/over in their chase, though, Zimbabwe never really got started, and while Jongwe and Luke Masasire (top-scorer for Zimbabwe with 54) put on a decent opening partnership, once the first wicket fell is started a typically-Zimbabwean collapse - from 43/1 in the 17th over, of the remaining batsmen only Bruce (22) passed 20, and Zimbabwe were bowled out for 136 in the 37th over. Zia-ul-Haq's 3/16 led a good combined bowling effort for the Pakistanis. Full scorecard below the cut. The win put Pakistan on top of the tournament table, ahead of South Africa on net run-rate, while Zimbabwe remain bottom.
Pakistan 265/9 (50 overs; Babar Azam 85, Bruce 3/64), Zimbabwe 136 (36.4 overs; Masasire 54, Zia-ul-Haq 3/16). Pakistan U19 win by 129 runs.
