Pakistan beat Zimbabwe by an innings and 147 runs

Pakistan won the second Test against Zimbabwe by an innings and 147 runs on Monday to wrap up a two-match series that they dominated.

The fourth day of the Test in Harare lasted just over 20 minutes as Pakistan, needing a single wicket, had Luke Jongwe caught by wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan to give Shaheen Shah Afridi his fifth wicket.

It was also a historic moment for Pakistan as the first time they've had three bowlers with a five-wicket haul in the same Test and only sixth time overall in Test cricket history and the first time since 1993.

Shaheen Afridi, Nauman Ali and Hasan Ali all completed a five-wicket haul in the match.

Opener Abid Ali named man of the match for his unbeaten double century (215*).

Hasan Ali was named Player of the Series for his twin five-wicket hauls in the first and second Tests.

Zimbabwe, who resumed at 220 for nine, were all out for 231.

It was the fourth successive series win for Pakistan on a Southern Africa tour.

They beat South Africa 2-1 in one-day internationals and 3-1 in Twenty20 internationals before defeating Zimbabwe 2-1 in a T20 series.

They won the first Test against Zimbabwe by an innings and 116 runs.
