    13.3 Mukhtar gone now... Tossed up on the leg stump, he loads up to lift it over long-on. Ends up finding Sibanda there.. Dolly catch, no errors here. And with that Sibanda becomes the first Zimbabwe player to take three catches in a T20 International 117/4
    4.5 Vitori strikes as Shehzad picks out mid-off. This was a well-directed short ball outside off, has ample legs on it to surprise the batsman. He aims for a pull, hit high on the bat as he splices it to Sibanda at mid-off 44/1
    8.3 Sibanda takes it at long-on! This was a nothing ball, shortish and outside off. Nauman wants to smash it over long-on. He does not enough enough power on it, mistiming it to Sibanda 81/2
    10.4 sharp piece of work from Utseya off his own bowling! Malik steps down the track, Utseya is aware of it as he pulls his length back. Punched back at the bowler, who moves to his right, makes a one-handed stop and lets rip a direct hit. Malik can't make his ground in time 95/3

    16.5 Mpofu pins Umar Akmal lbw for 30. Change of pace, low full toss on middle, Umar is early into the slog and does not connect. Trapped plumb in front of middle. Undone by the slower one. The bowler collapses in his followthrough and celebrates 152/6
    14.2 Afridi's attempted encore fails. Mid-on and mid-off converge, almost collide. Raza moves to his left from mid-on and pouches it safely. Big blow for the hosts. Lala made room again, Williams bowled it flat and full on off, he sliced it high in the air. Well-judged catch from Raza 130/5
    18.2 Top catch from Raza.. Crucial wicket for Zimbabwe. This was on a back of a length and outside off, slower in pace, Rizwan goes across the line and slogs it. Raza runs in from deep midwicket, hurls himself forward and snaffles a good catch. Mpofu looks skywards and thumps his chest. 161/8
    17.3 Anwar Ali charges down the track and perishes to a full toss. Can Zimbabwe pull off an upset? Anwar swings hard but connect connect. Williams rattles the base of the leg stump. Anwar shakes his head as he walks back to the hut 155/7
