commentary

Right then, that's all we have from this Pakistan's tour of Zimbabwe. The T20I series was quite competitive and the home team even managed to upset the visitors once. However, in the longer format, the hosts didn't have the wherewithal to compete with Pakistan. Now, there will be a bit of a lull in international cricket from hereon. Do join us when action resumes again. Cheers!

Babar Azam, the skipper of Pakistan, says he is very satisfied with both the series. States the batters did really well and the stand between Azhar and Abid was important as it set the tone and the others kept the good work going. Credits the way Nauman batted towards the end. Babar feels that this inning was very necessary for Abid Ali and it will give him and his team a lot of confidence, especially at the top, in the coming series.

Brendan Taylor, the captain of Zimbabwe, says that he would have liked a bit more positives from this Test. Mentions that they have a lot of things to address, particularly the mental side of the batting and wants more discipline with the bat. Adds that when he went to bat in the second innings, he changed his game plan as Pakistan are very skilful with the ball and surviving while defending would not have been easy, and that's why he decided to attack.

HASAN ALI IS THE PLAYER OF THE SERIES! The speedster says that it's been a good tour for him. Mentions that the pitch wasn't good to bowl as it was getting slower with every passing day. Shares that his plan was to bowl the stump-to-stump line and praises all the bowlers who supported him. Tells that he is very happy and talks about the hard work that he has put in the recent past after returning from injury.

ABID ALI IS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH! The Pakistan opener says that his plan was to form a partnership with Azhar Ali. Tells that the pitch was a bit slow earlier and their attempt was to stay in the middle and maximize the stand. Adds that he has self-belief and succeeded in playing a big knock. Mentions that his knock is a big achievement for him and his family and credits his coaches. Shares that scoring 60 odd runs in the first Test gave him the confidence.

Stay tuned for the presentation...

A couple of positives for Zimbabwe would be the batting of Regis Chakabva where he showed application and desire to spend time in the middle. With the ball, they were more or less flat but the spell with the second new ball from Blessing Muzarabani was exceptional and that had Pakistan in a little spot of bother then. The hosts still have a long way to go in this format and can take the positives from this series and move ahead.

As is the case in Test matches, batsmen can score runs but if the bowlers can't pick 20 wickets, you can't win. Nothing of that sort happened with Pakistan though. Hasan Ali led them superbly in the first innings with yet another fifer in his last few innings. Zimbabwe were shot out for only 132 in reply and were forced to follow-on. There were some counter-attacking knocks from the likes of Chakabva and Taylor in the second essay and the Pakistan spinners bore the brunt of that. However, Nauman Ali bounced back superbly to claim a fifer and destroyed Zimbabwe's middle order. Shaheen Afridi took the responsibility this time around from the pace department and picked up a 5-fer. All in all, a clinical performance by Pakistan to register a big win.

Summarizing this Test match, it was mostly about Abid Ali and his daddy hundred. He showed his character at the top as hitting a double century at any level and against any opposition is not easy. It requires focus and a truckload of patience. Abid showed everything during his 407-ball stay and has emerged as one of the secured options as an opener for Pakistan. Azhar Ali also struck a century to return to his best form and his double century stand with Abid threw Zimbabwe out of this Test match very early. The rest of the work was done by Nauman Ali's quickfire 97 which in a way deflated the hosts completely. 

As expected, Pakistan have not taken long to pick the last wicket to seal the Test match and series. Yet another comprehensive victory for them as they handed Zimbabwe an innings defeat once more. Once their batsmen piled up 510 runs in the first innings, the writing was on the wall. The hosts faced an imminent defeat from the third day onward as we already knew about their batting abilities. Still, Zimbabwe could have fought more, something they managed in their second innings but even that was too small a fight to bother the Asian team.

Shaheen Afridi to Luke Jongwe, OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Pakistan finally manage to take the last wicket. Shaheen Afridi it is who also gets a fifer. He will be really pleased with this fifer. The pacer was really frustrated in the first innings as he was struggling to pick up wickets but has comeback brilliantly and finished with career-best figures. Shaheen continued to probe from 'round the wicket angle and served a length ball outside off. It moved away a hint after landing as Jongwe decided to drive away from his body. But all he managed was an outside edge and it's taken by Rizwan. PAKISTAN WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 147 RUNS!

We are all set for the action to begin! The last batting pair for Zimbabwe, Luke Jongwe and Blessing Muzarabani walk out to the centre. Shaheed Afridi to bowl.

Hello and welcome to the coverage of Day 4 of the second Test between Pakistan and Zimbabwe. In this game of uncertainties, one thing is for certain and that is Pakistan’s win today. One wicket is all they need. How long will they take to pick it? Less than 10 balls or more than that? We will find out.

... Day 4, Session 1 ...

Nauman and Afridi ran through the middle and the lower order. Just the one wicket was needed and Azam took the extra 30 minutes which was, in the end, played out by the last pair and the bad light also helped them in stretching this Test match by a few more overs. So now the question is, how long will Pakistan take to pick the last wicket? We will find out, do join us for all the action on 10th May 2021 at 0930 local (0730 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

After bowling Zimbabwe out in the first session itself, they enforced the follow-on. The visitors did get two early but then Taylor and Chakabva surged a fight back. The two added a good stand but both were unfortunate to miss out on their respective milestones. Once Chakabva fell the procession started.

Another day which belonged to the visitors. We did see some glimpses of fight and character from Zimbabwe but it was all about Pakistan.

So, we will be having a Day 4! Just the one wicket is what Pakistan need to win the series 2-0.

Shaheen Afridi to Milton Shumba, Awkward! A short one on the body. Shumba looks to fend it away by taking his eyes off the ball. It hits his arm and lobs on the leg side. The fielder at silly point runs to his left and dives but does not get to it. Not sure it would have been given.

DRINKS BREAK- A solid period of play for Zimbabwe. They would be disappointed with how Brendan Taylor got out but Regis Chakabva is batting really well. He needs to bat till Stumps to put his team in a good position. On the other hand, Pakistan would look to pick up a few wickets today.

Falls one short of a half ton which he would have desperately wanted to get. The short ball ploy works. Short and on the body. Taylor looks to fend it but it goes off the glove and Rizwan takes a good catch diving to his left. Will this open the floodgates now?

Is that a catch? The umpires have gone upstairs but the soft decision is not out. The front foot no-ball is checked and it is fine. The ball seems to have bounced before going in the air.

We are back for the final session on Day 3! The Pakistani players stride out. Regis Chakabva and Brendan Taylor follow them. Nauman Ali to start off.

... Day 3, Session 3 ...

Right then! An exciting session is coming your way post Tea break. Do join us in a while to find out if Zimbabwe continue to bat well or if Pakistan strikes and gets a few wickets.

Regis Chakabva was once again the star for Zimbabwe. He has looked solid and is inching closer to his fifty. Tarisai Musakanda failed to provide a strong start yet again. Kevin Kasuza looked good but fell while looking to go big. Brendan Taylor is looking good out there and he would want to build a partnership with Regis Chakabva.

Pakistan started off nicely with Shaheen Afridi striking early. But a strong partnership followed. Sajid Khan was taken apart by Regis Chakabva. Nauman Ali was hit for a few boundaries but he also picked up Kevin Kasuza. They need to be patient and bowl in the right channels to pick up wickets.

A good session for Zimbabwe, they lost a couple of wickets but are looking good out there. On the other hand, Pakistan need to be patient to pick up the wickets.
