Pakistan beat Zimbabwe in One Test Match Series

Pakistan won by seven wickets against Zimbabwe at Queens Sports Club here on Monday. They were left needing 88 runs for victory after bundling the home team out for 141 runs in their 2nd innings, although they did lose 3 wickets in the process.

Having been put into bat by Pakistan skipper Misbah ul Haq, Zimbabwe reached 412 all out in their 1st innings before Pakistan replied with 466 all out to establish a 1st-innings lead of 54.

There was not much in it at that stage but Zimbabwe's 2nd innings collapsed to 135-8 at the close of 4th day.

Man of the match was Pakistan's Mohammad Hafeez, who scored 119 and took four wickets for 31. With one more wicket he would have recorded a 'viper' in cricket terms - a century plus five wickets in an innings - but he did not get a bowl in the final session.

For Zimbabwe, it is a disappointing result following their victory over Bangladesh but they can go out of this Test match with their heads held high. They ran Pakistan close for most of the game and they can be proud of the way they took the fight to Pakistan.

The first of three one-day internationals will be played on Thursday, followed by the other two in the series and two Twenty20 Cricket matches to round out the Pakistan tour in Harare.
