Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by 93 runs in Group D of the 2007 Cricket World Cup at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica.

After rain delayed proceedings, Zimbabwe's target was reduced by the Duckworth-Lewis method to 193 runs from 20 overs.

This was a game of farewells for Pakistan; their first game since the death of their coach Bob Woolmer, this also was their final match in the competition, and the last ODI match for their captain Inzamam-ul-Haq.


Toss: Zimbabwe won, and elected to field first.
