Pakistan beat Zimbabwe in 3rd ODI to clinch series
BULAWAYO - Pakistan defeated Zimbabwe by nine wickets to win the third ODI and take a decisive lead in the five-match one-day international series on Wednesday.

Faheem Ashraf took a career-best five for 22 as Pakistan dominated the hosts for just 67,  the home side's lowest ever score against Pakistan, and the lowest ever recorded in 78 ODIs at Queens Sports Club.

The Green Shirts then chased down the target in under 10 overs and with nine wickets to spare. Zimbabwe won the toss and opted to bat first, but Pakistan struck after just one over.
