it's all over! A run-out has ended things for Pakistan here. Misbah pushed a length delivery towards cover and Rahat went for the single but Misbah denied it and it was too late. The bails are taken of easily and Zimbabwe exult. The players are celebrating and are joined by their team-mates running out with the country flag
The Zimbabwe players and support staff are taking a victory lap around the ground with some jigs and they are taking pictures with fans near the boundary. That's all we have from this Test series, thank you for tuning in and for all the comments, it's Vishal Dikshit signing off along with our scorer Sanjay Murari. Goodbye and good luck!
The loss means Pakistan have dropped from fourth to sixth place in the ICC Test rankings and Zimbabwe are at No. 9, 24 rating points ahead of Bangladesh. It's time for the presentation:
Tendai Chatara is the Man of the Match: "Feels nice. After we didn't get a great start, I just told myself to hit the right line and lengths when I got the ball."
Younis Khan is the Man of the Series: "All credit goes to Zimbabwe, especially the management and the captain. A lot of things have been going wrong for them, especially off the field. Misbah is a cool customer but unfortunately he didn't have enough support. I wish I had spent more time at the crease but all credit goes to their bowlers who put their heart into the game."
Misbah-ul-Haq: "Zimbabwe really deserve that victory, they played very well in both the Tests and maintained pressure throughout the game. If I was going to get something in my area, I was just thinking of making runs. Our bowlers did really well in these conditions but our batting is a bit of a worry and we need a bit of work there. We needed big efforts like what Younis Khan did in the first Test."
Brendan Taylor: "Beating a world-class team is a great feeling. We haven't had a bowling coach in six months so all the credit goes to the bowlers. There's still room for improvement. We wanted to give our seamers a bit of a break before the new ball. Test cricket is about winning sessions and we might have done that. After the first Test, it's great to come back after a big loss and credit goes to all our players."
Ajay Gour: "Chatara and Vitori both finished the match with best bowling performance and that too 5/61 :)"
suleman: "as someone mentioned that the last wicket stand for zim in first innings could b the difference between winning or losing the match"
Tendai Chatara leads the team off with the ball as they shake hands with a disappointed Misbah. The crowd is on its feet and celebrations all round the ground, including the dressing room with celebratory drinks. 24 runs is the margin, the last time they beat Pakistan was long back in 1998.
Prosper Utseya is doing push-ups in the dressing rooms to celebrate. Tino Mawoyo: "Wonderful feeling, finishing it today like this was fantastic. We kept our heads cool and its a fantastic victory."
Hamilton Masakadza who threw the ball from cover for the run-out says: "I was thinking of the direct hit but Choki came back in time to take the bails off or it could have gone anywhere. This is a big win especially after losing the first Test."
Daniel Alexander: "Epic game of test cricket, who said test cricket is boring. Congratulations to Zimbabwe from Islandcricket.lk"
