A hapless Zimbabwe side ran into red-hot Pakistan in the third ODI in Bulawayo, turning in a performance that made the first two games look like heroic over-achievement.

Hamilton Masakadza: It was a bit of a disaster straight up. We just tell the guys to stay positive and try to rectify the wrongs done today. It's not easy to come back, though. We need more application. Soft dismissals and technical errors to go with it. Hopefully, we come out firing next game.

Sarfraz Ahmed: First of all, a great performance. Ashraf and Junaid bowl well but we can do with tough matches. Ashraf getting better day by day and is he an allrounder and we need him. We will try to give opportunities to the other players in the next two games.

Faheem Ashraf is the Player of the Match

Well, that escalated quickly and I'm not complaining. Goodbye for now.

9.5R Ngarava to Fakhar Zaman, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, in his swinging arc, belted through midwicket. Game, set and match. Pakistan win with 241 balls to spare. This has been a hiding of the kind Zimbabwe haven't witnessed so far in the series. Pakistan seal the series 3-0 .
9.4R Ngarava to Fakhar Zaman, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, fetches the pull from way outside off again, gets it away towards deep midwicket where there's a misfield to give away a boundary. Should have been no more than two.
9.3R Ngarava to Fakhar Zaman, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, gets on top of the bounce and pulls him all along the ground to the square leg fence.
9.2R Ngarava to Babar Azam, 1 run, width outside off again, gets a thick outside edge on the cut to square third man.
9.1R Ngarava to Babar Azam, No run, keeps low as this slants across, beats the bottom edge as he looks to cut.
