Moreover, Pakistan had on Monday acquired the second test match against Zimbabwe by an innings and 147 runs, securing the two-match series.
Brilliant Shaheen Afridi took a career-best five for 52 helping his side to outclass the hosts at Harare Sports Club on Monday.
Pakistan needed just one wicket at the start of the day and it took a very short time for Shaheen to induce an edge from Luke Jongwe (37) to wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan, wrapping up the game as Zimbabwe were bowled out for 231 in their second innings.
Pakistan won the first test by an innings and 116 runs and have now completed a comprehensive series victory, which followed limited-overs success in South Africa.
