BRISBANE, Australia (AP) -- Misbah-ul-Haq played a lonely hand to keep Pakistan's innings on track Sunday, batting for almost 43 overs and contributing 73 to a total of 235-7 in a World Cup Pool B match against Zimbabwe.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, Misbah arrived in the fourth over with Pakistan reeling at 4-2 after Tendai Chatara (3-35) had dismissed Nasir Jamshed (1) and Ahmed Shehzad (0).

After weathering 121 balls, Misbah was finally out trying to lift the run-rate when he drove Chatara down the ground and was caught just inside the long-on boundary by Sean Williams to make the total 202-7.

Wahab Riaz (54 not out) added quick runs at the end, raising his maiden ODI half century on the penultimate ball of the innings.
