The key statistical highlights from the second Zimbabwe vs Pakistan Test in Harare

Here's a look at some statistical highlights from the second Test in Harare between Zimbabwe and Pakistan, which went the way of the visitors by an innings and 147 runs.
3 - Players with five-wicket hauls for Pakistan in the Test - Hasan Ali returned 5 for 27 in the first innings, while Nauman Ali and Shaheen Shah Afridi picked up 5 for 86 and 5 for 52 in the second innings respectively. It's the first time three players have registered five-wicket hauls for Pakistan in a Test match.
It was also just the sixth instance of three players from the same team picking up five-fors in a Test match. The last such occasion was at Edgbaston in 1993, when Australia's Paul Reiffel, Shane Warne and Tim May picked up five-fors against England.
2 - Instances when two left-arm bowlers have picked up five-wicket hauls in the same Test innings. Before Nauman and Afridi achieved it in Zimbabwe's second innings in Harare, England's George Hirst and Colin Blythe did the same against Australia at Edgbaston in 1909. Hirst and Blythe, in fact, picked up all 20 wickets for England in that Test.
2 - Series of more than one Test won by Pakistan outside Asia in the last ten years, including this one. Their other came in the West Indies in 2017, where they won the three-match series 2-1.
4 - Test matches as captain for Babar Azam, and Pakistan have won all four. No Pakistan captain before Azam had won more than two consecutive Tests after their captaincy debut. Azam is also only the eighth captain overall to win each of his first four Test matches.
The victory margin of an innings and 147 runs was their second biggest in an innings win outside Asia. The biggest came in 1973 in Dunedin, when they defeated New Zealand by an innings and 166 runs.
8.92 - Hasan Ali's Bowling average in the Test series, the best by a Pakistan bowler in a multi-match Test series (minimum ten wickets). The previous best was 10.40 by Mudassar Nazar during the three-match Test series against England in 1982, where he took ten wickets.
2010 - The last time a Pakistan player recorded a 50-plus score and a five-wicket haul in the same Test before Nauman Ali did it in Harare. It was Saeed Ajmal, who had achieved the double against England in 2010 at Edgbaston.
