Pakistan restored their pride, following last week's innings defeat, by dismissing Zimbabwe for 174 on the opening day of the second Test in Bulawayo yesterday as their pace attack took control. Only a gritty 60 by Alistair Campbell enabled the hosts to recover after being reduced to 23 for 3 and then 86 for 6. Grant Flower became Wasim Akram's 250th Test wicket.
