Hafeez stars in Pak win
Pakistan stamped their authority over Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club on Friday, winning the first of two Twenty20 matches by a huge 85 runs.
Mohammad Hafeez was the star of the show, scoring 71 before taking four wickets.
Pakistan raced to 198 for four -- a record against Zimbabwe -- with the highest previously set by South Africa with 194-6 at Kimberley last year.
Then they bundled out Zimbabwe for 113 in the 16th over, condemning the home side to a fifth successive loss to the tourists, who also won the one-off Test as well as three one-day internationals.
