Zimbabwe 174

Pakistan 260

Pakistan recovered from losing three wickets in 18 balls to pace man Heath Streak to build an 86-run first-innings lead in the second Test against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo yesterday.

The tourists, 63 for 4 after Streak's burst, fought back to reach 260 all out at the close of the second day thanks largely to a well-crafted fifth-wicket partnership of 70 in 90 minutes between Salim Malik and Ijaz Ahmed (76). Streak finished with 5 for70 from 26 overs.
