0.5

Abdul Razzaq to Taylor, OUT, 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

BRM Taylor c †Kamran Akmal b Abdul Razzaq 4 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Zimbabwe 5/1   RW Chakabva 0* (0b)   Abdul Razzaq 0.5-0-5-1

1.6

Umar Gul to Chakabva, OUT, 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

RW Chakabva lbw b Umar Gul 0 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 5/2   T Taibu 0* (1b)   Umar Gul 1-1-0-1

5.2

Umar Gul to Sibanda, OUT, 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

V Sibanda c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 5 (14m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Zimbabwe 13/3   T Taibu 3* (10b)   Umar Gul 2.2-1-4-2

12.4

Wahab Riaz to Taibu, OUT, 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.

T Taibu c Shahid Afridi b Wahab Riaz 19 (54m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 65.51

Zimbabwe 43/4   CR Ervine 14* (25b 2x4)   Wahab Riaz 2.4-0-11-1

23.5

Shahid Afridi to Lamb, OUT, 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

GA Lamb c & b Shahid Afridi 16 (44m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Zimbabwe 84/5   CR Ervine 39* (64b 4x4)   Shahid Afridi 4.5-0-15-1

29.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Ervine, OUT, 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

CR Ervine b Mohammad Hafeez 52 (98m 82b 5x4 0x6) SR: 63.41

Zimbabwe 103/6   E Chigumbura 6* (16b)   Mohammad Hafeez 0.3-0-2-1

39.4

Umar Gul to Utseya, OUT, 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

P Utseya c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 18 (36m 32b 0x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Zimbabwe 151/7   E Chigumbura 32* (46b 2x4)   Umar Gul 7.4-1-36-3
