Hasan Ali returned with his career-best figures of 5 for 36 to bowl out Zimbabwe for 134 in 46.2 overs and help Pakistan register a huge win of an innings and 116 runs in the first Test at the Harare Sports Club on Saturday.

Hasan moved past 50 Test wickets and finished with nine wickets in the match - a performance he dedicated to his newborn child. He recorded figures of 4-53 during the home side's first-innings score of 176.

Pakistan posted 426 in reply, anchored by Fawad Alam’s superb 140 which put the tourists into a commanding position.

"We had planned to put 300-plus on the board (as a lead), and then bowl them out for 150-200," Pakistan captain Babar Azam said in the post-match presentation. "It was an outstanding finish by Hasan."

Tarisai Musakanda top-scored in Zimbabwe's second innings with a career-best 43 before he was needlessly run out chasing a suicidal third run. It was a wasted opportunity for the batsman who had been elevated from his usual number three position to open due to an injury to Prince Masvaure who did not bat in the second innings.
