Harare:Young teenage prodigy Mansoor Amjad came up with a stellar all-round performance to spur Pakistan 'A' to a highly impressive 272-run victory over Zimbabwe 'A' on the final day of the second and final four-day unofficial Test at the Harare Sports Club here.

The 19-year-old Mansoor first struck a brilliant 99 from 81 deliveries to help Pakistan 'A' declare their second innings at 273 for nine after resuming at their overnight score of 203 for six with the young lad starting proceedings from his overnight score of 54.

Mansoor was back in the swing of things with the cherry as well as he snaffled six for 19 to devastate Zimbabwe 'A' as they capitulated for a measly 112 after being set a huge target of 385 for victory.

None of the Zimbabwean 'A' batsmen were able to get going with only opener Neil Ferreira managing a score above twenty.

Pakistan 'A', who wrested the first Test by three wickets, thus pocketed the series 2-0.

Brief Scores: Pakistan 'A' First Innings: 311 all out. Zimbabwe 'A' First Innings: 200 all out. Pakistan 'A' Second Innings: 273/9. Zimbabwe 'A' Second Innings: 112 all out.
