Pakistan bowler Mohammad Hafeez bowls on the last day of the One Day International between Pakistan and Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club in Harare, Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2011.

Younis Khan and Asad Shafiq hit half-centuries as Pakistan reached 270-5 in the third and final one-day international against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club here today.

The pair unsettled the Zimbabwean bowlers, who gave them too much width in a 97-run stand for the third wicket.

Younis faced 90 balls for his 81, smashing six boundaries and a six before hitting straight back to bowler Kyle Jarvis, who took a low catch in the 41st over.

Shafiq stroked three fours and a six from 72 balls to reach 51 before he was stumped by wicketkeeper Tatenda Taibu off Ray Price’s flighted delivery.

Elton Chigumbura returned figures of 2-36, removing opener Imran Farhat (37) and Shoaib Malik (14).
