DAWN, HARARE, 11th SEPTEMBER 2013: Junaid Khan took 4-67 as Pakistan ended a late rally by Zimbabwe to bowl it out for 294 in its first innings in the second test on Wednesday.

Seamer Khan led the Pakistan bowlers and was backed up by spinner Abdur Rehman’s 3-47, but Zimbabwe’s last two wickets added 60 runs to move the home team to a respectable score after it was 203-7 late on the first day and 237-8 overnight.

Tailenders Prosper Utseya (22), Tinashe Panyangara (24) and Tendai Chatara (21) all frustrated Pakistan’s bowlers on the second morning before Rehman trapped Chatara lbw to end the innings. Hamilton Masakadza top-scored with his 75 on Tuesday.

Pakistan won the first test by 221 runs and needs only a draw at Harare Sports Club to claim the two-match series.
