Commentary

That is all for the moment from this Test match. The second and final one starts at the same ground from Tuesday, September 10, and we hope it goes ahead amid the Zimbabwe players' monetary issues. Abhishek Purohit signing off.

Misbah-ul-Haq: "It was a match-winning innings, they won the first three and a half days, that is the help you have when you have a senior like him, he changed the game. We need lot of improvements, played a Test after a long time, they made us work hard, we need to be on the money from the start. First two days we were left behind, we do not want to do this again and again. They are a really, really improving side."

Younis Khan is the Man of the Match. Younis: "Whenever the team needs me and I score a hundred, I feel good. This ranks high for me. They never gave us any easy runs. It was a nice effort from them."

Hamilton Masakadza: "The boys fought hard for three and a half days, it was only towards the end of the fourth day that things started to go away from us. We did compete and we were ahead at one stage. Bowling them out for 250, it could have been a bigger lead for us, their last wicket had a partnership. Dont think I would change my mind at all (on the toss)."

Zimbabwe have crumbled inside 40 overs on the final day. Junaid Khan started the demolition with an early double-strike. The middle order resisted very briefly before the spinners took over. Eleven wickets in the match for Saeed Ajmal, four in the innings for Abdur Rehman. After conceding a 78-run lead, Pakistan have won by a considerable margin of 221 runs, underlining Zimbabwe's utter lack of fight in the fourth innings. Pakistan were effectively 91 for 5 in the second innings when Younis Khan started the fightback along with Adnan Akmal. The fight back turned into total dominance as Younis motored to a double century

Saeed Ajmal to Chatara, no run, gets down on a knee and misses a heave to a doosra, there is an appeal for a stumping, the back leg is on the crease on one angle, but most of these replays are too grainy to be absolutely sure
