2nd Test: Abid Ali’s double-ton puts Pakistan in control against Zimbabwe on Day 2

On the Day Two of the second Test at Harare, Pakistan were in firm grip of the final Test against Zimbabwe after Abid Ali registered an unbeaten double century before the touring bowlers accounted for four host batsmen at stumps yesterday.

Zimbabwe were 52 for four and found themselves in a precarious position as they needed another 259 runs to avoid the follow-on and trailed Pakistan’s 510 for eight declared by a whopping 458 runs.

Abid stroked a wonderful 215 not out after resuming the day on 118 to record the best score by a Pakistan batsman at the Harare Sports Club, beating Younis Khan’s 200 not out. This was the first instance of Abid breaching the 200-run mark in Tests.

The right-handed opener crunched 29 fours from the 407 balls he faced. His teammate Nauman Ali smashed an electrifying 97.
Overall, he struck nine fours and five sixes and conjured up a remarkable 169-run stand with Abid.

Nauman was stumped after tea, which prompted Pakistan captain Babar Azam to declare the innings with a big score on the board.
