View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Waller b Vitori 23 36 21 4 0 109.52
6.5 the radar is not with Zimbabwe, it is with Pakistan! Short from Vitori, angling into the batsman, and Hafeez responds with an imperious pull. It seemed set to sail towards the midwicket boundary, but hang on.. There was a man at deep midwicket. And Hafeez could not have picked him out more accurately if he had tried to. 45/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat c Chibhabha b Chigumbura 37 69 45 7 0 82.22
14.2 Elton does the job. He's tied Farhat down with the tight lengths, and suddenly goes fuller, and I suspect, slightly slower. Farhat was too eager to drive, he seemed to be early on the shot and scooped it in the air towards cover, who tumbled forward to take a smart catch. 76/2
View dismissal Asad Shafiq st †Taibu b Price 51 103 72 3 1 70.83
33.4 appeal for stumping, and Shafiq could be in trouble. Flighted ball from Price, landed outside leg after passing Shafiq who was lured out of the crease for the flick. He missed, Taibu didn't collect it cleanly at first, but grabbed the rebound off his chest and removed the bails well on time. The umpire seems to have forgotten to signal a wide too. 173/3
View dismissal Younis Khan c & b Jarvis 81 99 90 6 1 90.00
40.3 another stunning return catch, and Pakistan are in a spot of strife here. It was in many ways a replay of Malik's dismissal - full ball, eliciting the drive to the left of the bowler, who reacted rapidly to tumble and pluck it low, with both hands this time, on his follow through. Younis seemed to be drawn into the shot early and couldn't keep it down. 300 too optimistic now? 215/5
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c & b Chigumbura 14 23 14 1 0 100.00
39.3 Elton Chigumbura takes a blinder on the rebound! Zimbabwe's fielding continues to be a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde show. Full ball on off stump, Malik got into the drive and hit it to the left of the bowler at shin-height. Elton reacted superbly on his follow through to pluck it low to his left as he skid and tumbled alongside it. 211/4

View dismissal V Sibanda c sub (Umar Akmal) b Yasir Shah 59 112 76 5 1 77.63
25.2 Sibanda commits suicide. He was looking good, and Zim aren't in a situation where they have to hit everything. He jumps out to this one, doesn't get to the flight but still tries to heave the loft over long-on. No luck, he finds the fielder in the deep and Yasir Shah has his first ODI wicket. 110/1
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha c Younis Khan b Shoaib Malik 62 135 88 7 0 70.45
30.2 dismissal, soft as a baby's bottom. Chamu has chipped a friendly length ball on off stump against the turn, inside out, straight into the hands of cover standing in the circle. Zimbabwe are losing too many wickets too quickly. 133/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor* c †Adnan Akmal b Aizaz Cheema 6 13 14 0 0 42.85
28.3 the in-form Taylor is gone. That's a cruel blow for Zim. Taylor tried to be innovative there, he was looking to guide a ball just outside off through to third man, manufacturing room as he set himself up beside the line. He couldn't get enough on it, and feathered it through to the keeper. 120/2
View dismissal H Masakadza c Misbah-ul-Haq b Sohail Khan 21 43 26 0 1 80.76
38.5 Zimbabwe are disintegrating here, and it all down to inexperience. Slower ball from Sohail, Masakadza spotted it, but couldn't resist himself from pulling. Straight to Misbah at midwicket in the circle. 179/5
View dismissal T Taibu c Younis Khan b Yasir Shah 27 29 26 2 1 103.84
37.5 Younis Khan, take a bow! And they actually dropped this man from their team. He may be old, he may be close to the end of his career, but he's still among the fittest guys in this side. Short from Yasir, but he has the ability to skid along faster than you'd imagine. That's what spoiled Taibu's heaved sweep, but he should have still been safe. Someone forgot to tell Younis who zipped across to his right, dived full length and plucked it. 176/4
View dismissal MN Waller b Aizaz Cheema 19 33 18 2 0 105.55
44.1 the stumps go for a walk around the Harare Sports Club. Straight, length ball, challenging Waller to go for the cross-batted heave. He does and misses. The stumps are messed up. So are Zimbabwe's hopes. 208/7
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Asad Shafiq b Aizaz Cheema 9 19 15 1 0 60.00
42.3 Elton has perished. Short ball again from Cheema, but no width this time. Elton went for the pull, and looped it off the top edge to deep midwicket. Zim sink further. 196/6
P Utseya not out 15 35 14 0 0 107.14
View dismissal RW Price b Aizaz Cheema 10 12 8 1 0 125.00
46.2 Price backs away and shows Cheema all his stumps. Cheema obliges by messing them up. He has four wickets. 225/8
View dismissal KM Jarvis b Mohammad Hafeez 6 11 12 0 0 50.00
49.2 Hafeez has the plot safely in his briefcase though. Flat ball aimed at the stumps, Jarvis misses the cut and timber meets leather. 238/9
