#CricketComesHome To Pakistan – Hats Off To PCB
Pakistan is nation of cricket freaks and fans. Although our national game is “Hockey” but the key of entertainment for Pakistanis, when talking about sports, is Cricket. Every family comprises of diehard cricket fans. For Pakistanis, alleys, parks, schools, colleges or offices everywhere can be turned into their playground. It was such sad news for Pakistani cricket fans when International Cricket was discontinued from Pakistani grounds. Thanks to All-mighty that the international cricket comes to home ground for Pakistanis this year (#CricketComesHome trending on Twitter).
Hats off to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for bringing back international cricket to our grounds. Pakistan Zimbabwe series is an example of hard work and continued efforts put together by PCB in collaboration with Haier Mobile. By now, we all know that the Pakistan vs Zimbabwe T20 Series comprised of five (5) matches in all (two T20 matches and 3 One Day International matches), played at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore. The four matches out 5 have taken place and Pakistan’s Cricket Team has showcased some amazing victories displaying that the Pakistani Team is amongst the world class teams. 5th match from the Pakistan vs Zimbabwe Series is to be played tomorrow i.e. 1st June 2015. We hope that in this match Pakistani Cricket Team wins the hearts of its fans just like it has performed in previous 4 matches (previous 4 matches’ scores at a glance)
Friday May 22, 2015 Pakistan won by 5 wickets. Pakistan scored 173 runs at a loss of 5 wickets in 19.3 overs, whereas Zimbabwe scored 172 at a loss of 2 wickets in 20 overs.

Now, the last match of the Pakistan vs Zimbabwe Series is to be played tomorrow i.e. Sunday June 1, 2015. Let’s hope that Pakistani cricket team sets another example of flawless victory. All eyes will be on the capable captain Azhar Ali, as he has performed well in the earlier matches. Plus, fans will be expecting a lot more from Sikandar Raza as well because of his performance in the last match.
Hopes are high, but one should always keep in mind that it’s always about being entertained and playing with continued efforts to stand out.
