New Delhi: Pakistan cricket team have given the fans of its nation a lot to cheer about and have entertained them fully so far after another victory against visitors Zimbabwe on Tuesday.
Pakistan who beat Zimbabwe in the T20 series, won the first encounter of the three-match ODI series in a convincing manner. Pakistan scored a mammoth 375/3 in 50 overs and then restricted Zimbabwe to 334-5 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Over 700 runs were scored on Tuesday and the fans got a lot of excitement from both teams who played an exciting brand of cricket.
Lahore and fans everywhere in the nation has breathed new sense of life after cricket returned after six long years to the parched land of Pakistan. The pakistani cricketers should be lauded for their remarkable performances in all the three matches that have been played so far.
Large number of fans have come to the stadium to watch their heroes play after missing the action at home for such a long time. Since the 2009 attack on the visiting Sri Lankan team in Lahore, test teams have refused to tour Pakistan, leaving the national side to play most of their `home` matches in the United Arab Emirates.
Amidst tight security, cricket enthusiasts flocked to the stadium with posters and placards in support of Pakistan cricket, also thanking the Zimbabwean team for their support.
It has indeed been a revival of sorts for the Pakistani team and also it marks a small step towards more cricket that could find its way back here. Pakistan fans will hope they enjoy threat free action and it also will be vital for the nation's security to ensure safety. So far it has gone in a good note for the host nation.
