Pressure map: Pakistan vs Zimbabwe

Chasing 350 against a formidable bowling attack, featuring Gul and Sami, and Kaneria and Afridi, was going to be no picnic. Zimbabwe started with a pressure index (PI) of 180.
Quickly things got even worse as Zimbabwe collapsed to 12/3 in just their 6th over.
Mercifully the big rain just after the 10th over, when Zimbabwe were 29/3, briefly halted Zimbabwe's sorry decline.
When Zimbabwe returned, just less than 10 overs remained to be bowled and the reset D/L target required Zimbabwe to score another 160 and odd runs.
Zimbabwe went for sixes, lost wickets in the process and the match became a wet and unnecessary farce.
When it was all over, one only remembered Inzmam-ul-Haq's somber, bearded face as he bid ODI cricket goodbye.
