Zimbabwe vs Pakistan Preview:
After putting up an inspirational effort to record their first T20I victory against Pakistan in their 17th attempt, Zimbabwe had germinated some hopes to show some fight in a tougher format. Although, the first Test proved to be a better illustration of where the hosts stand, come to the longest format of the game.
In the first Test, where they faced 105.3 overs both innings combined, the longest any batter lasted in was 94 balls and the most any scored was 48 runs, both debutant Roy Kaia. What they can take some pride in is the fact they bowled Pakistan out, with Blessing Muzarabani once again showing his potency, claiming 4 for 71 alongside Donald Tiripano’s 3 for 89.
But it took Zimbabwe 133 overs to effect that when they could not bat even half that number of overs at a stretch. With such pale endurance, it is hard to compete, let alone find success in the format. Meanwhile, for Pakistan, who had nine losses in eleven overseas Tests in the last three years, the victory-drought ended with a convincing innings win.
For the visitors, the victory is less celebration and more regulation given it has come against a side billed a no-threat for them. Nothing changes going into the second encounter either for them.
