Pakistan one wicket shy of series win

Pakistan enforced the follow on after bowling hosts Zimbabwe out for 132 on the third day of the second and final Test at Harare Sports Club on Sunday.

After Hasan Ali's five-for in the first innings, Nauman Ali claimed five wickets and Shaheen Afridi took four wickets as Zimbabwe scored 220 for nine in the second innings before stumps were drawn for the day.

Pakistan, seeking to complete a sweep of the two-match series, had a first-innings led by 378. Fast bowler Hasan Ali continued his mastery over Zimbabwe's batsmen with a career-best five for 27 as Zimbabwe lost six wickets for 80 runs in an extended morning's play.

The lunch interval was delayed because Zimbabwe were nine down at the scheduled break. Last-wicket pair Richard Ngarava and Blessing Muzarabani added 22 runs before Muzarabani was run out.

Hasan, man of the match after taking nine for 89 as Pakistan won the first Test by an innings and 116 runs at the same venue, gave another impeccable display of controlled fast bowling.
