Pakistan win by 131 runs

WAQAR YOUNIS, standing in as captain, returned match figures of 13 for 135 for Pakistan, his best in Test cricket, to condemn Zimbabwe to a 131-run defeat in Karachi yesterday.

Waqar, leading the side in place of Wasim Akram, his injured fellow fast bowler, took 6 for 44 in the second innings of the first Test as Zimbabwe were bowled out for 134 on the final day.

All but one of Waqar's victims in the match was either bowled or leg before, with over half coming via leg-before decisions. Zimbabwe's top scorer was the opener, Grant Flower, with 25.
