Zimbabwe vs Pakistan, 1st Test, Pakistan tour of Zimbabwe 2013

Commentary

Pakistan won by 221 runs | Zimbabwe Vs Pakistan Live Score, 1st Test

That's all from us on this game. Join us again for the second Test starting on Tuesday. Bye! Bye!
Misbah-ul-Haq: 'Younis Khan set up the game for us. His innings completely changed the game. We need to improve a lot before the next game. We didn't play a Test for a long time and Zimbabwe tested us really well in this game. They are improving everyday.'
Younis Khan is the Man of the Match, he says, 'It is always very good to get runs when my teams needs me the most. This 200 is right up there. Zimbabwe didn't give us any easy runs. Their bowlers bowled well and made life difficult for us. Test cricket is all about playing well as a team and we did that.'
Saeed Ajmal is the Player of the Match
Hamilton Masakadza: 'I think the boys fought hard for the first three and a half days. Yesterday things didn't go our way and the game went away from us. The bowlers bowled really well and the batters applied themselves very well in the first innings. The last wicket partnership for Pakistan in the first innings dented us a bit.'
Zimbabwe would have ventured into the final day hoping for an fighting performance. The pitch was beginning to play tricks and they were encountered by a inspired spell from Junaid Khan. He reduced them to a rubble in no time dismissing both Sibanda and Masakadza. Raza and Waller fought hard for a while, but both were dismissed by Rehman. Chigumbura played some shots but the match was completely out of their reach. Ajmal and Rehman ended up with 4 wickets each and the match was over even before lunch.
46.4 Saeed Ajmal to Tendai Chatara W
out Lbw!! Pakistan win the 1st Test by 221 runs. This was tossed up ever so slowly by Ajmal, Chatara made room and was looking to go back over the bowler, misses it and is hit on the back pad in front of middle and leg. The umpire is spontaneous, umpire Davis takes his time and decides that Chatara is OUT. Chatara lbw b Ajmal 13(16) [4s-3]
10 wickets down for ZIM. Out batsman is Tendai Chatara. It is all over for ZIM.

46.1 Saeed Ajmal to Tendai Chatara 0
no run, this was tossed up outside off and spun away, Chatara made room and was looking to hoick it over mid-wicket, missed and Adnan Akmal was quick to whip the bails off. Replays suggest that Chatara had just a bit of foot behind the line
The 3rd umpire has been called for, Chatara is the man in question. NOT OUT is the call
We are well past the extra half an hour, still no lunch called. Maybe, the umpires are waiting for the last wicket to fall
