Pakistan struck back in the third session to leave hosts Zimbabwe at 237 for eight on the opening day of the second Test match at Harare today.



Seamer Junaid Khan led the attack with 3 for 55.



Rahat Ali and spinner Abdur Rehman had two wickets each as the Zimbabweans fell away after a promising 110-run partnership third-wicket partnership between senior players Hamilton Masakadza and captain Brendan Taylor.



Zimbabwe’s most experienced batsmen both made half centuries, but after Saeed Ajmal removed Masakadza soon after lunch for 75, the resistance crumbled.

Rehman picked up Taylor for 51.



The batsmen at the crease are Prosper Utseya on 14 and Tendai Chatara, yet to get off the mark.



Pakistan lead the series 1-0 following a 221-run victory in the first Test last week.
