Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, 1 run, flighted and is swept to deep square leg for a single. Again Sarfraz shouts what he thinks should be the amount of runs for that shot. "One!"

Zimbabwe 189/7   KM Dabengwa 8* (11b)

43.1

Shahid Afridi to Dabengwa, FOUR, full, really full but the batsman is caught at the crease and drives. He gets an outside edge and runs to third man where Latif dives and tries to make a stop but the ball eludes his grasp and runs to the boundary

43.2

Shahid Afridi to Dabengwa, 1 run, again a really full delivery, driven uppishly towards long-on

Shahid Afridi to Dabengwa, 1 bye, lands on the off stump, skids away and Sarfraz attempts a stumping before throwing the ball towards Afridi in one single motion. Afridi doesn't collect and overthrow results

45.1

Shahid Afridi to Dabengwa, no run, on the middle and leg, nudged to the on side

45.2

Shahid Afridi to Dabengwa, 1 run, comes down the track, tries to flick and it runs off the pad

45.5

Shahid Afridi to Dabengwa, OUT, 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 ...

GB Brent run out 14 (18m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 93.33

Zimbabwe 222/8   KM Dabengwa 26* (27b 2x4)

49.1

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, FOUR, slow through the air, down the leg side and is swept fine to the boundary

49.2

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, SIX, Now the big hit down the ground. He charged down the track, got under the ball nicely and swung it over long-on.

49.3

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, 2 runs, Where does this one go? It has been slog-swept to wide midwicket region

49.4

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, SIX, Another one that disappears over the boundary. Malik went round the stumps but sends down a long hop and he pulled it over the ropes. Good late charge by the Zimbabweans

49.5

Shoaib Malik to Dabengwa, 1 run, OUT, 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.
