View dismissal V Sibanda c Simmons b Best 13 11 12 3 0 108.33
2.6 89.7 mph, but gone this time! Best digs one in outside off and Sibanda flashes hard ... only for the ball to loop straight to Simmons at third man. Sibanda was aiming to uppercut it, but couldn't get enough on it, and Simmons barely had to move. So, an early wicket for the hosts and Zimbabwe under familiar pressure. 16/1
View dismissal H Masakadza c Pollard b Best 9 21 12 0 1 75.00
4.5 88.1 mph, how has he caught that? Pollard is quite some fielder. Standing at backward point, he can't be much more than 20 metres from the bat, and this was struck ferociously hard ... and he just stretched up to pluck it out of the air one-handed. Masakadza walks off, shaking his head. He really struck this cut shot well, but he couldn't get it past Pollard's lofty frame. Zimbabwe lose another one ... 28/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor*† c †Ramdin b Badree 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
3.4 58.6 mph, caught behind! Taylor attempts a reverse-sweep - or, reverse ramp shot, almost - as Badree spears one down outside off, but the ball rushes on to him and kisses the edge before it's caught by Ramdin. There's a massive appeal, and Taylor trudges off straight away. 17/2
View dismissal CR Ervine st †Ramdin b Narine 34 46 39 5 0 87.17
15.1 53.5 mph, stumped by miles! They got this one right on the television commentary. "Ervine came down the track, and didn't find what he was looking for." He telegraphed his intents, coming down very early, and Narine looped the ball down wider. Ervine had no choice but to go for it, but ended up wafting at thin air. 88/4
View dismissal MN Waller b Narine 49 50 34 4 2 144.11
17.6 55.3 mph, gone for 49! Waller makes room and swipes, the ball rushing on to rattle his stumps. It looked like the quicker offspinner, and beat the inside edge. 119/5
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha b Best 8 13 9 1 0 88.88
18.1 85.7 mph, too hot to handle! Best starts with a searing yorker, and it's through Chibhabha before he can get the bat down. Beaten for pace, pure and simple. 119/6
View dismissal CT Mutombodzi c Russell b DJ Bravo 2 7 3 0 0 66.66
19.1 66.0 mph, deceived by the slower ball! Mutombodzi was through the shot before the ball got to him, and spooned a simple catch out to Russell at deep midwicket. 124/7
View dismissal P Utseya c Russell b DJ Bravo 2 8 5 0 0 40.00
19.4 65.5 mph, another one perishes in the pursuit of runs! Utseya picked up a length delivery, swiping it in the air to deep midwicket. He hit it reasonably well, but was hitting into a strong wind coming from that side of the ground, so the ball plummeted down a couple of feet inside the rope, Russell again holding a simple catch. 126/8

View dismissal J Charles lbw b Mpofu 26 15 14 6 0 185.71
3.5 74.7 mph, plumb! Mpofu has struck for Zimbabwe, pinning the dangerous Johnson Charles in front of his stumps. This was a canny piece of bowling, a slower ball that cut in quite sharply off the track to strike Charles in front of middle. Mpofu roared an appeal, and then roared in celebration as the finger went up. That'll raise Zimbabwe's spirits. 30/1

5.5 84.6 mph, he's got another one! How quick was this? Too quick for Darren Bravo as he rocked back and aimed to pull. The ball came off the splice and looped up to give Chibhabha an easy catch at mid-on. 46/2
