  England innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DL Maddy c Matsikenyeri b Chigumbura 14 8 9 2 0 155.55
2.3 goes to hit it over cover, but mis-times and doesn't get the distance nor height - Matsikenyeri does, though, leaping high to take it well 20/1
View dismissal MJ Prior c Chibhabha b Mupariwa 20 21 14 2 1 142.85
5.3 looked to go over the top but holed out at cow corner for a well-watched catch, eight yards in from the boundary 51/3
View dismissal LJ Wright c †Taylor b Chigumbura 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
2.4 gone first ball! Edged a huge nick through to the keeper, looking to launch a huge cover-drive out of the ground 20/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Masakadza b Utseya 79 41 37 7 4 213.51
14.3 another massive swipe but this time Pietersen doesn't get enough bat on it ... the ball spirals high into the outfield at deep extra cover, but is comfortably snaffled. Credit to Zimbabwe, they've been outstanding in the field in both matches, and that's a vital breakthrough 151/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood* run out (Sibanda/†Taylor) 37 33 28 1 2 132.14
15.1 from Chibhabha, a loose full toss, smeared out to deep point, and immediately Collingwood's looking for two. He's very quick between the wickets ... but not quick enough. Cracking throw from Taibu on the boundary's edge, and terrific work from Taylor to scoop and whip off the bails. Two quick wickets, and Zimbabwe have a chance to dent the momentum 154/5
View dismissal A Flintoff b Chibhabha 13 11 13 0 1 100.00
17.6 He's out this time! A legcutter slower ball, Flintoff has another heave, and is comprehensively bowled. A look of bemusement as he leaves the crease 172/6
View dismissal OA Shah c Chibhabha b Chigumbura 11 9 8 0 1 137.50
18.2 in the air again, but miscued this time - the ball swirls down to third man, and that's an excellent tumbling catch. Zimbabwe keeping themselves in touch with some cracking work in the field 178/7
View dismissal AD Mascarenhas c Masakadza b Chigumbura 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
18.3 walloped, but straight to the man at deep extra cover! That was right out of the middle of the bat - flat and tracer-like. He couldn't have hit it any better, but he's gone first ball ... 178/8
CP Schofield not out 9 8 7 1 0 128.57
View dismissal SCJ Broad run out (Mupariwa/Brent) 1 6 2 0 0 50.00
19.4 Brent to Schofield, a baseball carve into the leg side, an instant call for two and Dabengwa fields and throws expertly from long-on. It's gone to the third umpire ... Broad's long strides can't make up the ground, and that's another late wicket. England could be bowled out here 186/9

View dismissal V Sibanda c Maddy b Mascarenhas 29 32 25 5 0 116.00
8.4 outside off and goes straight in the air, Sibanda looking to go for the pull shot one too many times and the top edge is taken easily enough at cover 74/1
View dismissal BRM Taylor b Mascarenhas 47 43 39 4 2 120.51
12.1 cracking control from Mascarenhas, and that could be game, set and match for England. A perfect legcutter, Taylor - frustrated by the slowing of the run-rate - swings across the line, and his stumps are shattered 84/3
View dismissal T Taibu b Mascarenhas 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
10.2 that's the breakthrough, and a very timely one from England's point of view. Mascarenhas dropped it on a length as ever, Taibu went for a big swing across the line, and under-edged onto his stumps 81/2
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha c & b Schofield 5 12 8 0 0 62.50
13.4 another one bites the dust, and that's Schofield's second wicket in four balls. A hint of turn out of the rough, Chibhabha aimed to play across the line, and looped a leading edge straight back to the bowler 89/5
View dismissal S Matsikenyeri c Flintoff b Schofield 2 3 6 0 0 33.33
13.2 a fraction of width and Matsikenyeri goes down on one knee to thump that over the covers. But lurking on the boundary's edge is Andrew Flintoff, and he doesn't drop those. A fourth wicket falls, and Zimbabwe's challenge is ebbing away 87/4
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Wright b Collingwood 8 9 5 0 1 160.00
15.4 too short, but effective nonetheless. Chigumbura went for the maximum, but could only pick out Luke Wright, who was lurking ten yards in from the midwicket boundary. A flurry of wickets, and England are set for a comfortable victory now. With a wounded Australia to come tomorrow, that's just as well ... 104/6
View dismissal H Masakadza c Wright b Broad 27 24 23 1 0 117.39
19.4 in the slot for a swing, but Masakadza can't get enough bat on it. It disappears high, high into the stratosphere, and lands safely in the hands of Luke Wright at deep midwicket. A useful innings comes to an end, as Dabengwa comes to the crease 137/7
