Commentary

Zimbabwe won by 24 runs | Zimbabwe Vs Pakistan Live Score, 2nd Test

Thats it from all of us here. Join us for the rest of the cricket that is going on. Bye...
We have witnessed two good Test matches. The first one was dominated by Zimbabwe for three and a half days, but thanks to a superb double hundred from Younis Khan Pakistan got through easily. The second Test saw the return of Taylor who missed the first due to a paternity leave. He scored a fifty in the 1st innings. The hosts will have to thank their bowlers who were the main reason behind the win. Vitori was outstanding in the first essay while Chatara took over in the 2nd.
As for Pakistan, they did not bat well in the first innings and were under pressure to score 264 on a wearing fourth and fifth day. Misbah battled away alone without any support from the other end. He would have liked to have had someone with him to pull of the victory. This turned out to be an amazing Test series.
Taylor: 'Finally beating a world class team is a wonderful feeling. We did not have a bowling coach for 6 months so much credit to the bowlers. Even though we won this Test match, we learned a lot from Pakistan. They're a professional unit. We wanted to give the pacers a breather. The new ball was available after lunch and that was a good factor for us. Test cricket is about winning sessions. You can never really relax with the quality of players they (Pakistan) have. It takes some character to come back after losing the first Test'.
Misbah: 'I think Zimbabwe deserved this victory the way they played in not only this Test but also the first one. They played positively right from the start and they deserved to win. It was very simple thinking, if anything was in my area I would go after it and if someone had stayed with me then it would have been good. I think the bowlers really bowled well and the batting is a bit of a worry, the batsmen need to learn from their mistakes and have to score big hundreds, 20s and 30s won't help win a Test match'.
Younis is the man of the series: 'All credit to Zimbabwe, especially the management and support staff. Misbah is a cool customer and he did not have support at the other end. I would have liked to have been there at the end. But all the credit to their bowlers as they bowled in the right areas'.
Chatara is the man of the match: 'It feels nice to win. After we got a great start I thought I will bowl in the right areas and let the cracks on the pitch do the rest'.
What a match it was! We did not have a clear winner until the end. Zimbabwe dominated most of the match. But till Misbah was at the crease Pakistan were in with a chance. In the end Misbah was stranded as Rahat Ali was run-out. Chatara was the pick of the bowlers, as he once again provided the breakthrough after Lunch by getting rid of Junaid Khan. He picked up his maiden five wicket haul and took Zimbabwe to a historical win.
The celebrations have begun in the dressing room. They are enjoying with beers and dancing around with each other. Shingi Masakadza comes running onto the ground with the Zimbabwe flag. It will be a long night for all the players, who have worked hard to pull off this victory.

out Rahat Ali Run Out!! It's all over for Pakistan. The last ball of the over and Rahat Ali wanted a single and a confusion leads to a run out. It was bowled on a good length outside off, Misbah-ul-Haq defends it to cover point where Masakadza picks up the ball and throws it a fielder at the bowler's end who takes the bails off calmly. Misbah is devastated. Rahat Ali run out (Masakadza/Panyangara) 1(1)

Rahat Ali, right handed bat, comes to the crease
80.4 Tendai Chatara to Junaid Khan W
out Caught by Malcolm Waller!! Chatara gets his first five wicket haul. This was on a good length shapes away late and extra bounce as well, Junaid tries to play it on the leg side and is squared up, the ball takes the leading edge and goes quickly to Waller at gully who takes a sharp catch. One wicket seperates Zimbabwe from a famous victory. Junaid Khan c Malcolm Waller b Chatara 1(18)
