Fakhar Zaman’s 91 powers Pakistan to their highest-ever T20 run-chase, with Australia, left to rue a late batting collapse in the tri-series final at Harare today (Jul 08).

The world number one T20 side won the game by six wickets.

Fakha smashed 91 from 46 balls after Pakistan lost two wickets in the first over.

He combined with Shoaib Malik for a match-defining 107-run stand. The left-hander struck three sixes and 12 fours in total, timing his innings almost to perfection.

His late departure brought Australia back into the contest, but Malik finished the job with a clever inning to see Pakistan reel in their highest-ever T20 run chase.

Fakhar's brilliant knock caps off a superb campaign, with his 278 runs earning him the player-of-the-series honours.

Australia:

183 for 8: (Short 76, Finch 47, Amir 3-33)

Pakistan

187 for 4 : (Fakhar 91, Malik 43 not out)
