View dismissal V Sibanda run out (Rizwan Ahmed/†Sarfraz Ahmed) 18 55 36 2 0 50.00
10.3 from Sohail Tanvir, Run out by Rizwan from long leg. It was on the pads, clipped past square leg and they tried to push for the second run. Rizwan moved swiftly to his right, swooped and fired in flat and accurate throw. Sarfraz does the rest. Gone! 35/2
View dismissal H Masakadza* c & b Abdur Rauf 5 31 13 0 0 38.46
5.5 What a catch to get your first wicket! Don't trust your fielders, take it yourself, says Rauf. Full in length, on the off stump and is driven low to him and Rauf picks it off his shoe laces in one fluent motion. 23/1
View dismissal SC Williams c Khurram Manzoor b Wahab Riaz 19 61 42 3 0 45.23
17.4 Williams could have a misty eye now. He has top-edged a pull shot. It was the short one from Riaz - who has shown a penchant to send that delivery now and then - and Williams' pull went awry. Caught at long-leg. Zimbabwe slid further. 64/4
View dismissal T Taibu c Rizwan Ahmed b Wahab Riaz 6 16 11 0 0 54.54
13.3 Wow! Stunning catch at covers. That man Rizwan again. It was poor delivery - short and wide- and Taibu slashed it in the air but Rizwan took off in the air, left hand outstretched and was parallel to the ground when he took it. Watch it in the Youtube. Coming soon, in a computer near you 48/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor b Shoaib Malik 49 104 78 5 0 62.82
39.3 Big turn to terminate Taylor's resistance. It pithched a foot outside off stump, Taylor went back and was surprised by the sharp turn that saw the ball rush through his bat and pad. Timber! Just before Malik started his run-up, Sarfraz had chirped, "No 7 No 7 boys" 153/7
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha lbw b Shoaib Malik 1 5 2 0 0 50.00
18.4 trapped by a quicker one! That one really zipped through. It landed on a length and seamed on straight, Chibhabha was caught completely by surprise and the ball evaded the intended jab and struck him high on the pad. He was on the back foot but the ball looked high. Zaheer Abbas, on air, reckons it would have gone over. 67/5
View dismissal E Chigumbura st †Sarfraz Ahmed b Fawad Alam 34 73 58 2 0 58.62
38.6 And it's really bahut aala (very nice) from both the bowler and the 'keeper. Fawad slowed it up, tossed it up a little more, drew the batsman forward before turning it past the bat and Sarfraz did the rest. A useful partnership of 85 runs comes to an end. 151/6
KM Dabengwa not out 16 30 20 0 0 80.00
View dismissal GB Brent run out (†Sarfraz Ahmed/Shoaib Malik) 4 6 5 0 0 80.00
41.1 from Shoaib Malik, And then there were two. Mis understanding and a run out. He leaned forward and tapped a ball close on the off side. Yes and no and yes and by that time, Sarfraz had rushed after the ball, thrown his right glove, lunged at the ball and he fired in a throw to Malik. 159/8
View dismissal RW Price b Abdur Rauf 7 17 14 1 0 50.00
45.3 yorked! Around 130 kmph, full and straight at the off stump, hint of late movement in and Price has a stab and a miss. 181/9
View dismissal CB Mpofu b Abdur Rauf 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
45.4 Yorked again! Raufed up! This one swung in a bit more than the previous delivery and went past the jab to crash into the off stump. In a nice gesture, the Pakistani fielders ask Wahab Riaz and Rauf to lead them back to the pavilion. 181/10

View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Dabengwa b Chigumbura 19 26 18 2 0 105.55
6.1 Collision between mid-on and mid-off but the mid-off fielder - Debengwa- holds on to it. It was a slog from Nasir but only managed to send the ball straight up. 40/1
View dismissal Khurram Manzoor b Price 50 105 73 6 0 68.49
24.4 cleans him up. Right after fifty, he went for a sweep and is gone. It was full and on the off stump, too full to play that hard sweep and it went under the bat and on to the off stump. Price is chuffed up; he really wanted Khurram's wicket, had beaten him on a few occasions. And finally does him in with a straighter one. 145/3
View dismissal Younis Khan c Masakadza b Price 63 70 51 8 1 123.52
22.5 Masakadza takes a skier. Price went wide of the crease this time, from round the stumps and flighted across a loopy delivery outside off. Younis Khan went down on his knee and attempted a slog-sweep but top edged it towards long-off. Well taken by Masakadza 137/2
