Pakistan's pace-bowling trio, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Shahid Nazir, destroyed Zimbabwe's second innings to set up a 10-wicket victory in the second and final Test in Faisalabad yesterday. Wasim, the Pakistan captain, finished with 10 for 105 as Pakistan won before tea on the third day to clinch the series, 1-0. The Lancashire all-rounder, who dominated the rubber with a career-best 257 and a haul of 11 wickets in the drawn first Test, was voted man of the match. Zimbabwe, 134 behind on first innings, collapsed from their overnight 136 for three to 200 all out, Wasim finishing with four for 57, Waqar four for 54 and Shahid two for 25. Openers Saeed Anwar and Aamir Sohail then comfortably scored the 67 required, Saeed hitting the winning four off pace bowler Bryan Strang as Pakistan won with two and a half days to spare.
