View dismissal V Sibanda lbw b Kamran Hussain 3 16 12 0 0 25.00
3.4 Gone! Sibanda is trapped in front. Again. It landed on a length, on the middle and straightened. Sibanda had again plonked his front foot too much across and tried to bring his bat around the front pad. Too late. Trapped! 7/1
View dismissal H Masakadza* lbw b Kamran Hussain 2 28 11 0 0 18.18
5.1 Kamran Hussain has done it again! He might not have that much pace but has that lovely ability to bring the ball back in to the right-handers. This one curved in from the middle stump line and Zimbabwe's stand-in captain was caught in front of the stumps. It hit him just above the knee roll and the batsman was on the front foot but it looked out, if you know what I mean. 12/2
View dismissal SC Williams c & b Shoaib Malik 48 88 56 4 1 85.71
21.5 soft dismissal. Beaten in the flight. He flighted it a bit more than usual, on the middle stump, Williams was late in deciding to drive and ended up tapping it lamely back to the bowler. 97/3
View dismissal T Taibu c & b Shoaib Malik 51 101 76 4 0 67.10
29.6 another c&b for Malik! Again he tossed it up a bit more than normal, full and outside off stump and Taibu lured by the flight, tried to thrash it down the ground but ended up hitting it uppishly to the left of Malik who pouches it safely 132/5
View dismissal BRM Taylor lbw b Shoaib Malik 7 8 6 1 0 116.66
23.4 another lbw. It spun in from just outside off stump, Taylor went back and missed an intended flick to the leg side. It would have hit the leg stump. Zimbabwe are beginning to lose their way. Done in by the spinners. 109/4
View dismissal CJ Chibhabha b Shahid Afridi 30 44 44 0 0 68.18
39.3 89.6 kmph quick slider cleans him up. Caught Chibhabha completely by surprise. It landed on a length and by the time he tried to bring the bat down, the ball had whistled through straight and crashed into the middle stump. Afridi,. as his wont, points his index finger to the skies. Even Ashoka de Silva can't supress a smile. 173/6
View dismissal E Chigumbura st †Sarfraz Ahmed b Fawad Alam 24 32 36 1 0 66.66
40.2 Stumped! It was full and well outside off stump, Chigumbura tried to whip it across the line, missed and fell over in the process. Sarfraz was quick to whip off the bails. 175/7
View dismissal KM Dabengwa run out (Sohail Khan/†Sarfraz Ahmed) 45 43 32 3 2 140.62
49.5 from Shoaib Malik, comes down the track, swings towards long leg where Sohail Khan fields and fires in an accurate throw to the 'keeper who does the last rites. Great show by Debengwa, though. This is the first time this series that Pakistan have dismissed Zimbabwe. 244/10
View dismissal GB Brent run out (Shoaib Malik/Shahid Afridi) 14 18 15 1 0 93.33
45.5 Shahid Afridi to Dabengwa, Confusion and he is gone. It was whipped to left of midwicket where Malik fumbles a touch before recovering quickly to throw at the non-striker's end. Afridi gathered and was a touch late in breaking the stumps. The on-field umpire gave it out. The replays - at least one angle- seemed to suggest that the bat was dragged inside the crease before the bails came off. Hmm... And Afridi was pretty late, he collected the ball, moved his hands towards the stumps and stopped! He then proceeded to hit the stumps ... 205/8
View dismissal RW Price b Sohail Khan 7 13 9 0 0 77.77
48.3 Ah! here comes the yorker. It is full, fast and swings in late. The bat is late in coming down and the off stump is pegged back. Never mind the speed gun that showed it as 112 kmph, surely you must be kidding me? Peach of a yorker. Keeping up with the great Pakistan tradition. Not a bad way to pick up your first wicket. 225/9

View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Brent b Chigumbura 11 18 14 2 0 78.57
4.3 Caught at short fine leg. The ball was on a length and on the pads and Nasir flicked it straight and low to that man placed there. 18/1
View dismissal Khalid Latif c Williams b Mpofu 19 62 42 2 0 45.23
14.1 The cross batted swipe has done him in. Sikander Bakht sighs in the commentary box! It was full and outside off stump and Latif swiped it across the line and straight and low to deep midwicket. Williams moved to his right and took it low. Did the ball touch the ground as he picked it? Need better replays to confirm that. 66/2

39.6 from Brent, And Malik is run out. For the 16th time in his career. He had turned a low full toss to right of short midwicket and ran with the stroke. But Yousuf was going nowhere and Malik couldn't get back in time. Taibu is ecstatic. 207/3
