View dismissal H Masakadza c sub (Rubel Hossain) b Mashrafe Mortaza 16 21 16 3 0 100.00
4.4 Mortaza bangs it in on a good length on the offstump and gets it to cut back in, he tries to defend close to his pads but he appears to get a thick inside edge on to his pad which lobs up to Shakib at square leg who runs forward, the appeal was initially for a lbw but he was given out caught, I need to see another replay of that 23/1
View dismissal V Sibanda lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 15 62 35 2 0 42.85
13.3 floated from outside off, the ball lands in line with the middle stump and goes through with the angle, Sibanda defends very close to the pads, Shakib persists with the appeal and the umpire Nadir Shah raises the finger 53/2
View dismissal S Matsikenyeri c Shakib Al Hasan b Naeem Islam 39 75 51 6 0 76.47
21.6 that's a stunning catch! He gets forward to chip it with the turn towards mid-on, Raqibul at short midwicket flings himself to his left and pulls off a stunner while airborne, he will cherish this catch for a long time 94/4
View dismissal T Taibu c Mashrafe Mortaza b Naeem Islam 17 25 19 3 0 89.47
19.2 that reverse sweep was bound to out him in his place at some point, he tries to cream a high full toss over the off side, Mortaza at short third man leaps up, fumbles initially but takes the catch at the second attempt 88/3
View dismissal SC Williams lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 3 5 13 0 0 23.07
22.2 now Zimbabwe are in deep trouble, he gets it to turn sharply from over the wicket, Williams tries to work it to the on side but the ball hits his pads in line with the leg stump, he gets only half forward 94/5
View dismissal KM Dabengwa c & b Naeem Islam 10 34 25 0 0 40.00
35.1 very soft dismissal, it's a long hop which should have been put away, he stays back at the crease and tamely punches it back to the bowler, he takes a very easy return catch 123/6
View dismissal E Chigumbura run out (†Mushfiqur Rahim) 64 98 95 5 1 67.36
49.5 from Mahbubul Alam, makes room and heaves it over square leg, they attempt a second run but the throw from the deep is sharp and Rahim does well to slide to his right and whip off the bails 204/9
View dismissal P Utseya* c Mahbubul Alam b Shakib Al Hasan 9 37 28 0 0 32.14
44.4 gives it a lot of air on middle and off and tempts Utseya into going for the slog sweep, he gets a thick top edge and it sails straight in to Mahbubul's hands at deep square-leg 155/7

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal run out (†Taibu/Sibanda) 13 47 40 2 0 32.50
11.1 from Utseya, terrible mixup and Tamim can't believe what has happened, ashraful gives the charge and scoops it just over short midwicket, the throw from long-on is fired to the keeper, Ashraful isn't interested in the extra run but fails to notice that Tamim's already half way down the pitch, Tamim has no time to turn around and he gives up thanks to the accuracy of the throw 32/3
View dismissal Junaid Siddique lbw b Utseya 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
1.2 not so sure if that was hitting the stumps, he delivers from round the wickets and gets the ball to drift away from the left-hander, Junaid gets forward and is hit on the pad but it didn't really look like hitting the offstump, no wonder Junaid was a little surprised at Doctrove's decison 9/1
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim b Rainsford 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
2.3 Mushfiqur completely misjudges it! Rainsford lands it on a good length on the offstump and gets it to come back in, Mushfiqur shoulders arms and expects the ball to sail over the stumps but to his horror it clips the top of the offstump, excellent delivery to square him up and it's game on already at Mirpur 10/2
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful* c Sibanda b Utseya 18 37 21 3 0 85.71
11.3 now Ashraful goes and Bangladesh are in deep trouble, Ashraful gives him the charge and tries to clear long-on but fails to get the desired elevation, the ball dips on Sibanda and he manages to hang on to it very well on the dive 33/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c †Taibu b Chigumbura 52 91 66 3 0 78.78
34.2 the bowling change works, Chigumbura adjusts the line closer to the offstump, the ball kicks up a bit on Shakin who shapes to cut square but he only ends up getting a thick edge to Taibu 126/7
View dismissal Raqibul Hasan b Dabengwa 23 55 36 2 0 63.88
25.3 that run-out miss didn't cost anything at all! He slips in a quicker one and Raqibul's beaten in flight as he gets forward to drive and the ball goes through straight and hits the stumps 92/5
View dismissal Mehrab Hossain jnr st †Taibu b Price 2 3 4 0 0 50.00
26.2 Zimbabwe are clawing back and hard! Price teases him with flight and he gives him the charge and attempts to take him down town, he misses the ball completely and Taibu has the easiest of stumpings 95/6
View dismissal Naeem Islam run out (Williams) 21 49 52 1 0 40.38
41.6 from Chigumbura, another direct hit! He nudges it softly towards short midwicket and attempts a risky run, Williams gathers the ball and under arms the ball directly at the non-striker's end, the third umpire takes a look 146/9
View dismissal Mashrafe Mortaza run out (Chigumbura) 3 14 11 0 0 27.27
37.4 Price to Naeem Islam, it's that man Chigumbura again! He taps it towards square leg and sets off for a quick single, Chigumbutra gathers and in one motion effects a direct hit and Mortaza is a yard short, excellent fielding, the third umpire takes a look 132/8
