Pakistan Tops Zimbabwe in Cricket - 2004-10-03

In cricket, all-rounder Shoaib Malik and Younis Khan each tallied timely half-centuries to lead Pakistan to a narrow three-wicket win over Zimbabwe, in their second one-day international in Peshawar. Malik made 80 off 104 balls Sunday, while Khan added 77 as Pakistan recovered from an early scare of 48 for three. The hosts overhauled the 253-run victory target in 48.1 overs for the loss of seven wickets. Earlier, Brendan Taylor and Dion Ebrahim struck half centuries against an under-strength Pakistan bowling attack to guide Zimbabwe to a solid 252-for-four. Zimbabwe lost the first game at Multan last Thursday by a margin of 144 runs. Sri Lanka is also playing in the triangular series.
