View dismissal BRM Taylor c †Kamran Akmal b Abdul Razzaq 4 3 5 1 0 80.00
0.5 80.1 mph, Kamran's caught one! huge blow for Zimbabwe, Taylor falls. He walked forward into a drive, pushing his hands out at an outswinger. A thick edge nestles safely in the keepers' gloves 5/1
View dismissal RW Chakabva lbw b Umar Gul 0 9 6 0 0 0.00
1.6 87.9 mph, There's another one! Wrapped right infront of leg stump and he's given out. Chakabva thinks about the review - it could well have been slipping down leg with the movement and on the angle - but decides against it. Zimbabwe in early trouble here 5/2
View dismissal T Taibu c Shahid Afridi b Wahab Riaz 19 54 29 2 0 65.51
12.4 88.8 mph, gone! The crucial wicket falls, Taibu's gone. The ball was fuller and he was trying to lift it over the off side. It hits the toe of the bat, however, looping to Afridi, who's run around from mid-off. 43/4
View dismissal V Sibanda c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 5 14 11 1 0 45.45
5.2 89.0 mph, what a catch! Sibanda steps forward to defend, uncertain of which way the ball will wobble. It comes in on the angle but then jags away and bounces, taking a healthy edge and flying to first slip where Misbah tumbled to his right to pluck the ball out of thin air 13/3
View dismissal CR Ervine b Mohammad Hafeez 52 98 82 5 0 63.41
29.3 58.4 mph, end of Ervine, bowled him, that one kept a touch low and Ervine looks to cut, he misses and the ball crashes into middle and off, absolutely no footwork from Ervine, he is caught in the crease by a delivery he should have been forward to, he pays the price, Pakistan are delighted 103/6
View dismissal GA Lamb c & b Shahid Afridi 16 44 28 1 0 57.14
23.5 54.9 mph, there's the wicket, a googly that wasn't picked up by the batsman, a short of length ball that comes in after pitching outside off, batsman goes for the booming drive, inside-edged and ends up popping it back to the bowler, Afridi has his first 84/5
E Chigumbura* not out 32 57 46 2 0 69.56
View dismissal P Utseya c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 18 36 32 0 0 56.25
39.4 89.8 mph, a second catch for Akmal, a short ball from Gul, Utseya goes for the pull, top-edges the high-speed delivery, and it pops up towards backward square leg, it's in the air long enough for Akmal to race across and pouch it 151/7

3.4 56.8 mph, gone! Stumped by metres! This one was looped up much slower, Shehzad sprinted out at it and tried to smash it into the Indian Ocean. Taibu has the bails off in a flash, and that's just what Zimbabwe wanted 17/1
