Zimbabwe tour of Pakistan, 2007/08 / Commentary

Zimbabwe in Pakistan ODI Series - 4th ODI

Pakistan v Zimbabwe

Pakistan won by 7 wickets (with 18 balls remaining)

0.1

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, no run, Two slips waiting and he pushes the first ball in the corridor outside off. Perhaps. a tad wide and the batsman leaves it without any fuss.

0.2

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, no run, And again, veering away from the off stump but it starts from the off stump, allowing the batsman enough time to see where its going

0.3

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, no run, Repeat. Three in a row in that line. Not a bad start, eh?

0.4

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, no run, better. This one landed on the middle and off and moved away and Sibanda did well there to leave it. He leaned forward, saw the ball shaping away and shouldered arms

0.5

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, no run, this one lands outside off and stays in that region, no problem in letting that one go through to the 'keeper

0.6

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, no run, fuller, just outside off stump, Sibanda shapes to drive but thrusts his front foot a bit too across and the ball thuds into the pad before hitting the bat and as a result loses a bit of momentum and rolls towards mid-off

Zimbabwe 0/0   V Sibanda 0* (6b)

2.1

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, no run, Around 127 kmph delivery, full and seaming away, left alone

2.2

Sohail Tanvir to Sibanda, 3 runs, 127.5 kmph, full and slanting away from Sibanda who moves crisply on to the front foot and drives through extra cover. He just timed it, no flourish of a bat swing, just a push

Zimbabwe 5/0   V Sibanda 3* (8b)

3.1

Kamran Hussain to Sibanda, no run, full and outside off, left alone

3.2

Kamran Hussain to Sibanda, no run, shout for lbw and then they go for the 'catch'! Good delivery: it landed on a length, around off and straightened and the batsman was struck high on the pad as he lunged forward. The ball bounded off to first slip

3.3

Kamran Hussain to Sibanda, no run

3.4

Kamran Hussain to Sibanda, OUT, 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!

V Sibanda lbw b Kamran Hussain 3 (16m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Zimbabwe 7/1   V Sibanda 3 (12b)
