Zimbabwe beat Pakistan: A sign of hope?
Zimbabwe celebrated when they beat Pakistan by a comprehensive seven wicket margin during the 1st One Day International at Harare.
The team has gone through a tough time in the recent past and in fact controversies and off-field issues have marred their progress. There was a time in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when Andy Flower, Heath Streak, Grant Flower to name a few made them a competitive side. Today, they have a talented bunch of players but don't have enough exposure against the big teams. As a result, when they do come up against the big ones, they often falter. India's 5-0 whitewash of them being a case in point.
