The T20 World Cup continues to amaze. Zimbabwe pulled off an incredible heist in Perth, stealing a last-gasp, one-run win over Pakistan in a nerve-jangling Super 12 fixture.

It’s just the second time Zimbabwe have beaten Pakistan in 18 T20Is, coming up trumps in the first-ever T20 World Cup meetup between the two sides. The victory took Zimbabwe to third on the Group 2 points table, behind India and South Africa, with three points and a positive net run rate so far.

A topsy-turvy game swung either way right until the final ball – before the last over began, Pakistan required 11 runs, with Mohammad Nawaz and Muhammad Wasim chasing 130. Three runs off the first ball, and four off the next, brought down the equation to four required off four, but Brad Evans held his nerves commendably, hitting hard lengths and giving away just two runs off the next two balls, while also taking the wicket of Nawaz.


Off the last ball – with three required – new man Shaheen Afridi could manage just a single, his attempt to scamper for a second ending in a run out. Wicketkeeper Regis Chakabva struggled with the incoming throw, but managed to recover just in time to beat a diving Shaheen.

As expected, there were reactions aplenty on social media after Zimbabwe’s historic triumph.
