In the last nail-biting game, India won the match against Pakistan on the last ball of the match.  

In the aftermath of two derbies, two different moods. Zimbabwe was upset with having had to carry on in the conditions they did against South Africa, but no doubt relieved to have come away with a point. Pakistan, meanwhile, was anguished at seeing two points slip away in that wild last over at the MCG against India.

In other times, that kind of loss might have felled other Pakistan sides, but there's something more settled about this one. 

They may rue not picking the fourth pacer at the MCG, but Mohammad Nawaz was not far from winning it: a little luck with the deflection off the stumps on the free-hit, a little fortune with that no-ball call, and they're sitting pretty now. In the dressing room after the game, Babar Azam was not letting heads fall, telling Nawaz he was still his match-winner. Imperfect they may be, but they're more together than most Pakistan sides of modern vintage.

Zimbabwe will draw confidence from their two white-ball wins against Pakistan in the last two years
