The inspired Zimbabwe all-rounder Sikandar Raza took two wickets in two balls to remove Shadab Khan and Haider Ali, before having Masood stumped in his very next over to give Zimbabwe hope and set up a big finish.

Pakistan needed 11 to win off the final over of a pulsating evening, and that equation came down to three from three with the well-set Mohammad Nawaz at the crease.

But 25-year-old Brad Evans produced three stunning deliveries right when it mattered.

After the match, Sikandar Raza broke down in tears in a post-match presentation while collecting the POTM award.

Sikandar Raza in post-match said: “I am lost for words, my mouth’s dry probably because of the emotions I am going through at the moment. I can’t tell you how proud I’m of this bunch of boys. The way our seamers started at the top, was just unbelievable and the way we backed it up in the field and the way we kept believing, really lost for words.”

Raza also revealed what he was talking about with his captain after the match. He added: “When we were coming to Australia, I said to my captain (Ervine), If you become Man of the Match, pick any watch from the catalogue and I’ll buy you that. But if I win Man of the Match (award), you’re going to buy me one. I was reminding him that he owes me three watches now.”

“I was excited today, and I watched this clip by Ricky Ponting earlier in the morning, and that motivated me to come up with this performance. I would like to thank Ricky Ponting for that,” Raza concluded.
