8.6

Odhiambo to Chakabva, OUT, 135.7 kph, and Nehemiah strikes in his first over, lovely delivery, very close to off stump, getting him to push forward at it, moves away off to take the outside edge, and David Obuya gleefully accepts the dolly

RW Chakabva c †DO Obuya b Odhiambo 9 (36m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.90

Zimbabwe 32/1   BRM Taylor 22* (32b 4x4)   NN Odhiambo 1-0-1-1

9.4

Otieno to Taylor, OUT, Kenya have got the big one, Taylor departs to a nothing shot, this one was not on the pads, he still tries to flick it away, it was outside off stump, he did not get across and ended up scooping it in the air to mid on

BRM Taylor c Ngoche b Otieno 26 (41m 36b 5x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

Zimbabwe 36/2   T Taibu 0* (0b)   E Otieno 4.4-0-18-1

29.1

Otieno to Taibu, OUT, a massive mix-up again and this time Sibanda is run out! Taibu pushed the ball towards cover point and took off down the pitch. He then decided he didn't want to run and backtracked into his crease while looking at the ball the whole time. He didn't see that his partner Sibanda had responded and was haring through for the single. The fielder at cover point ran to the non-striker's end with his arms raised in celebration and took off the bails.

V Sibanda run out 61 (82m 57b 7x4 1x6) SR: 107.01

Zimbabwe 146/3   T Taibu 45* (60b 5x4)   E Otieno 5.1-0-18-1

32.4

Ngoche to Taibu, OUT, that's lbw! Taibu attempts the reverse sweep and misses. The ball hits him rather straight on off and middle line. Umpire Dharmasena raises the finger quickly. Taibu wants a review, but it's futile. That would have hit the middle of middle. Start the car ...

T Taibu lbw b Ngoche 53 (103m 74b 7x4 0x6) SR: 71.62

Zimbabwe 165/4   CR Ervine 11* (7b 2x4)   JO Ngoche 6.4-0-48-1

46.6

Ongondo to Chigumbura, OUT, and now he pulls off a well-timed catch, Elton swung this one with power down the ground, but Mishra timed his leap at the precise moment to take the ball that was sailing over his head

E Chigumbura c Mishra b Ongondo 38 (68m 41b 3x4 2x6) SR: 92.68

Zimbabwe 270/5   CR Ervine 65* (52b 9x4 1x6)   PJ Ongondo 10-0-53-1

47.6

Otieno to Ervine, OUT, he is gone now, went for a forceful punch to a length ball and chopped it on to the stumps

CR Ervine b Otieno 66 (89m 54b 9x4 1x6) SR: 122.22

Zimbabwe 276/6   GA Lamb 5* (4b 1x4)   E Otieno 9-0-42-2
