Pakistan A 73 for 3 trail Zimbabwe A 191 (Amjad 6-69) by 118 runs

Mansoor Amjad, the 19-year-old legspinner, ran through Zimbabwe A on the first day of their match against Pakistan A at the Country Club in Harare. After winning the toss and putting Zimbabwe in, Pakistan bowled them out for 191. Amjad, who took 6 for 69, was simply too good for the Zimbabweans. Only Neil Ferrera and Mark Verrmeulen resisted, scoring half-centuries at the top of the order. Then Pakistan replied with 73 for 3, and ended the first day of this four-day match in control of things.
