“It’s the nature of sport,” said Mpumelelo Mbangwa. And it’s why we love it. In another incredible game in this incredible World Cup edition, Zimbabwe defended 130 to upset Pakistan by one run in an all-time classic.

After the Zimbabweans collapsed from 95/3 to 95/7, it seemed that all hope was lost. However, the spark of hope began to flicker again when the Pakistan openers were dismissed cheaply in the powerplay. From that moment, Zimbabwe stayed in the game, with the magnificent Sikandar Raza producing one of the memorable T20 World Cup spells to dismantle the Pakistan middle order.

Such is Raza’s amazing form that Danny Morrison joked “I’m sick of seeing you here,” after he accepted yet another player of the match award. He held the award proudly soon after Zimbabwe pulled off an incredible win late on, with Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Wasim almost certain to have taken Pakistan home. The men in green needed just four off four balls after a few lusty blows, but when the tall Zimbabwe bowlers hit the deck, the Pakistanis couldn’t connect well enough.

Despite all the rain around Australia, this World Cup is showing up the UAE edition in 2021. No matter the toss result, the game result itself is often up in the air, making for a magnificent spectacle.

PAK vs ZIM Twitter reactions to a memorable match

Of course, Cricket Twitter went crazy. Here are some of the best reactions to another World Cup classic.

After that damaging defeat, Pakistan have to pick themselves up for the Netherlands at the same ground on Sunday. Zimbabwe will travel to Brisbane for a winnable game against Bangladesh. Should they win, they give themselves a real shot at qualifying for the Semi Finals with a match against the Netherlands still to come.
