Pakistan Cricket Academy 260 for 7 (Alam 100*, Shafiq 49, Masakadza 3-42) beat Zimbabwe Board XI 197 (Kasteni 45, Majeed 3-41) by 63 runs
Pakistan Cricket Academy swept the one-day series against Zimbabwe Board XI 3-0 after Fawad Alam's unbeaten century led the visitors to a 63-run victory in the final match at the Zimbabwe Cricket Academy in Harare.
Pakistan once again chose to bat after winning the toss - they had done so in the second game as well - and scored 260 for 7 in 50 overs. Alam anchored the innings and scored 100 not out off 132 balls with seven fours. Asad Shafiq contributed 49 before he was run out, while Umer Amin scored 38.
Amin was Prince Masvaure's first wicket and he finished with 2 for 35 off seven overs, while Shingirai Masakadza, returning from injury, picked up 3 for 42.
The target of 261 proved too tall for Zimbabwe's batsmen and they fell short for the third time in the series. They were dismissed for 134 and 189 while chasing targets of 238 and 214 in the first two games and their final effort ended on 197. Their top-scorer was Friday Kasteni who was bowled for 45 by Mohammad Talha. Chakabva's 37 was the second-highest score followed by Timycen Maruma's 31. Zimbabwe's innings ended in the 47th over.
Raheel Majeed took 3 for 43 for Pakistan, while Mohammad Talha and Imad Wasim took two wickets each.
