Done with the national anthems of both sides and now time for the action to unfold. Still a bit confused about Australia's decision to field first because Pakistan love defending with their spin attack. The surface here is also sluggish but perhaps, the morning start influenced Finch's decision. There might just be a bit of help with the new ball. Australia's quicks will have to maximise whatever help is on offer because otherwise, it could be a tough game. Live action then, ladies and gentlemen. Let's roll.
It's a sunny morning here in Harare, just about right for some cricket. Eventful day for Pakistan as, Shoaib Malik becomes the most capped player in T20Is, this is his 100th game which is the most by a male cricketer. He went past his former teammate Shahid Afridi (99 matches). Seems like Shoaib has been around for ages and yet, appears like a spring chicken on the field. More power to him, he'll want to make it special.
