View dismissal H Masakadza c †Uthappa b Sandeep Sharma 19 17 1 1 111.76
3.2 beautiful bowling! Job well done from Sandeep this time. As the captains have suggested, this deck is a little truer. Offers the quickie a tad bit more zip. Masakadza was on the walk, so it would appear even quicker. Credit to the bowler for shortening his length and tucking the batsman up. Tries to dab it to third man. Only feathers it through to the keeper 28/1
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha b Kumar 67 51 9 0 131.37
18.1 squirts through his legs and then its timber! Lovely bowling from Bhuvi as he goes for the yorker and angles it in as well. Chibhabha had moved across on off stump to try and flick the ball away, but it breaches his defences. When it doubt, go for the inswinging yorker 132/5
View dismissal Sikandar Raza* c Samson b Sharma 8 7 1 0 114.28
5.4 lucky, very lucky. Inviting width, pitched short enough for the batsman to get under as well. Raza puts everything into a slash. But to his chagrin, he gets more off the outside half and it flies down to deep third man 48/2
View dismissal SC Williams c & b Patel 17 18 1 0 94.44
11.1 that is poor from Williams. Gets down the track and pops a dolly back to the bowler. Credit to Axar, as he pulled his length back and refused to give the batsman the scoring options he was looking to create. Once that happened, Williams should had adjusted. He didnt. Still went hard at it, and pays the price 85/3
View dismissal CK Coventry lbw b Binny 4 10 0 0 40.00
15.3 puts him out of his misery. A laboured innings of 4 off 10. This was a good length ball angled in sharply at him. Coventry looks for a flick, but is into the shot too early. First appeal is for leg before, and he looks quite plumb too. Caught in the crease, playing around his pads 113/4
View dismissal CR Ervine b Kumar 7 9 1 0 77.77
18.4 finishes with another yorker. Homing in on off stump, Williams plays with a closed face and cannot get his bat down in time or in line with the ball 139/6
MN Waller not out 6 6 0 0 100.00
View dismissal P Utseya c Patel b Sharma 1 2 0 0 50.00
19.3 goes for a pull, but the short ball got a bit too big on him. Not enough room to free the arms either and gets a top edge. Simpe catch for midwicket running in from the deep 142/7

View dismissal AM Rahane* run out (Chibhabha/†Coventry) 4 3 1 0 133.33
0.3 from Utseya, short fine leg is well in play this time! Rahane tucks it around the corner and sets off. But behind the wicket is the non-strikers call and Vijay does take a few steps down. But suddenly he decides there arent any runs here and sells his captain a dummy 4/1
View dismissal M Vijay b Cremer 13 11 0 1 118.18
6.1 now thats what I call an intro. Simple, flat legspinner on off stump zips under Vijays bat and topples the off stump. Went for the ball seeing the flatter trajectory, which helps beat him for pace. Really not short enough for that shot 57/2
View dismissal RV Uthappa c & b Williams 42 25 9 0 168.00
7.3 thats a third wicket in two overs! Uthappa gives it away much like Williams himself had done with the bat. Pops a return catch, a slightly tougher one because this was quite well timed and Williams had to stretch his hands over his head and take it almost as it passed him on his right. Uthappas very good on the drive, but this time he forgets that doing that in the air straight at the bowler might become problematic 61/4
View dismissal MK Pandey lbw b Cremer 0 3 0 0 0.00
6.4 does him in with the googly! Cremer as it pitches on middle and leg and skids on to beat Pandeys harried flick and strike him low enough on the pads. But the problem was this ball would be heading down leg. Impact itself was very marginal. Umpire Tiffin pulls he trigger a bit too early 57/3
View dismissal KM Jadhav run out (Muzarabani) 5 6 0 0 83.33
8.6 Cremer to Binny, down the track, but Cremer doesnt flight the ball this time. Nudged into the midwicket region and has hit is soft enough to entertain thoughts of a couple, Muzarabani is the fielder running in from the deep and hits a direct hit. An off balanced direct hit, purely on instinct. Jadav is a little lax, doesnt think he was in any trouble. But this is some spectacular work from Zimbabwe 69/5
View dismissal STR Binny c Chibhabha b Cremer 24 23 2 0 104.34
15.1 what a catch! Runs in from the long-off boundary, dives forward after the ball, gets his hands low enough and then claims a great, low catch. Binny had charges at the leggie, but gets too close to the pitch and has to shovel it up in the air. That means he doesnt time it as well. Harare is abuzz. They sense something special here and fittingly Cremer, having taken two wickets in an over before, and Chibhabha, who hit a fifty, combine for this key wicket 105/6
View dismissal SV Samson c Waller b Mpofu 19 24 1 0 79.16
17.4 picks out long-on! Harare roars. They are on the cusp here. Mpofu looks skyward and pumps his fists. Bowls length, sees Samson go for the big hit but he hasnt timed it well enough to beat the fielder 117/7
View dismissal AR Patel c Williams b Muzarabani 13 15 1 0 86.66
18.4 full toss caught at deep midwicket! Great work by Williams running to his left and catching it over his head. The force is with them. This Harare crowd has taken care of that. The players are piling on top of each other in the huddle. Straight forward change to clear the boundary, but Axar doesnt make the requisite connection 124/8
View dismissal B Kumar run out (†Coventry/Mpofu) 9 6 0 0 150.00
19.3 from Mpofu, nine down! It was a low full toss, curling in late. Bhuvi is unable to make connection as he tries a slog. Coventry takes the ball, throws it to the bowler, who in turn underams a direct hit 131/9
