Bulawayo: Pakistan completed a seven-wicket victory over Zimbabwe just before lunch on Monday on the final day of their one-off Test.

Zimbabwe had delayed defeat after Tatenda Taibu hit an undefeated 58 on the fourth day and shared an unbroken ninth-wicket stand of 66 with Kyle Jarvis as the host finished on 135-8 at stumps in its second innings, a lead of 81 runs.

Taibu did not add a single run on the final day, nicking a wide Aizaz Cheema delivery to wicketkeeper Adnan Akmal on the last ball of the day's first over.

Last man Chris Mpofu also succumbed to the Akmal-Cheema combination as Zimbabwe was bundled out for 141.

Chasing a modest target of 88 runs for victory, Mohammad Hafeez scored 38 for Pakistan before Younis Khan (14 not out) and captain Misbah-ul-Haq (6 not out) comfortably took the visitors home.
