Harare: Zimbabwe beat Pakistan by seven wickets Tuesday for its first one-day international win in a bilateral series over the Pakistanis in 15 years.



Zimbabwe had lost its last three ODI series against Pakistan 3-0, 5-0 and 5-0 before half-centuries by openers Hamilton Maskadza and Vusi Sibanda and 43 not out by captain Brendan Taylor led the lowly-ranked African team to a rare win at Harare Sports Club.

Sean Williams made an unbeaten 39 and won the game with a six over long-on as Zimbabwe overhauled Pakistan's modest 244-7 with 10 balls to spare.

Zimbabwe finished on 246-3 and also secured only its fourth ODI win since late 2011.

Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq's 83 not out and Mohammad Hafeez's 70 earlier were in vain for the tourists.
