President Robert Mugabe has paid tribute to the national cricket team for beating Pakistan in the second test that ended at Harare Sports Club on Saturday.

The team’s performance left local cricket enthusiasts basking in the glory of the dramatic win, the first over the giants from the Asian sub continent in 15 years,

President Mugabe says it was a commendable achievement and capped off a fine week in which the Warriors also beat South Africa 2-1 in Johannesburg.

"In our cricket encounter with Pakistan, it is delighting that we managed to beat them with 24 runs, yes 24 runs but a win is a win nevertheless," he said.

Cde Mugabe is an ardent cricket fan who follows the game with keen interest.

Zimbabwe’s 24 run win over Pakistan is expected to enhance the mental strength and confidence of the players ahead of future international assignments, and President Mugabe will no doubt be tracking the team’s progress as he always does.

Meanwhile, local cricket fans have hailed team Zimbabwe’s historic test victory.

Cricket followers expressed satisfaction with Zimbabwe’s incredible 24 run victory over Pakistan in a thrilling nail biting contest.

Needing 5 wickets to win on the final day, Zimbabwean bowlers showed their mettle with a Tendai Chatara inspired attack toppling the tourists to 239 all out.

Chatara who gained instant recognition following his ruthless display with the ball was delighted to help his country to victory especially given his humble beginnings as an aspiring young cricketer in the dusty streets of Dangamvura in Mutare.

Zimbabwe’s 24 run win levelled their two match series with Pakistan at 1-all after losing the first test.

Following the morale boosting win the sky can only be the limit for a Zimbabwean outfit that will be yearning for more competitive duels against established test playing nations. - ZBC
