Pakistan thrashed Zimbabwe by an innings and 116 runs in the 1st Test match to draw first blood in the 2-match Test series. Pakistan were all-out dominant and showed no mercy over their Zimbabwean counterparts. After the closely-fought T20I series, the Test series began with a dull one as it was a completely one-sided affair. The 2nd Test match is slated to begin at 1:00 PM (IST).
The Zimbabwean batters let the team down as they were bundled out for less than 200 in both innings. The batsmen had no answer to Pakistan’s aggressive bowling attack and the wickets fell like a pack of cards. Roy Kaia was the top scorer for Zimbabwe in the first innings as he scored 48 runs. Tarisai Musakanda scored 43 runs in the second innings. Blessing Muzarabani should be a key player in your fantasy team as he picked up 4 wickets while bowling in the 1st Test.
Pakistan steamrolled past Zimbabwe in the 1st Test with stupendous batting and bowling abilities from players. Hasan Ali was the standout bowler in the Test match as he picked up 9 wickets in the match and was awarded the Man of the Match award. He also crossed 50 Test wickets in the game. Southpaw Fawad Alam scored 140 runs in the first innings and should play a huge role for Pakistan in the 2nd Test match as well.
