    7.2 timberrr! Masakadza looked like he had it covered with a push down the ground, but there was gap between bat, which came down at an angle from gully, and pad and the inside edge pings into the stumps. Reward for bowling a good length for Parnell as leg stump cartwheels 21/2
    6.6 guess AB knows better than me! This was the arm ball, skid on off the deck to smack Mutumbami below the knee-roll. Poor shot as he was looking to flick across the line. The closed bat face had no chance. 21/1
    11.5 full, angled in, seaming further as well. Raza has not read that at all, he is surprised by the movement and has ended up offered the ball free passage onto his off stump 26/3
    16.4 he flung his head down in disappointment the minute he met the ball. Raced down the track and perhaps got a little too close to it. Goes for the loft and forces it with a lot of bottom hand... right down long-on's throat 45/4
    36.2 he's holed out to mid-off! Slaps his bat down on his pad as he walks off. It was a similar ball, but this time he goes full-on with the drive and offers a simple catch to Parnell. A brave fight, and the only one from Zimbabwe's batsmen comes to an end 114/7
    21.3 bangs it in and Chigumbura hands a simple catch to mid-on! It was short and quick and rushed on to the batsman who pulled to put it away but only lobbed a sitter to Duminy. Parnell does a little jig for his second wicket 59/5
    28.4 Amla takes it at slip! It was a short of length ball well outside off, Jongwe played it late to run it fine but it was too fine and Amla leapt to his right to take a low diving catch 88/6
    41.6 up comes the finger, the batsman was dancing down the track and then whipped across the line of a straight delivery. It was a yorker that hit him on off stump and might just have gone on to clatter leg. Utseya was rushing back, thinking he would have been given the benefit and topped the off bail when his bat tickled the stumps as well 134/8
    47.3 got 'im! This was full and straight and he celebrates befitting his reputation. Punches the air and gives the departing batsman a stare. One sweep too many for Madziva 175/9
    49.1 he was walking back to collect his sweater by the time the umpire finally agreed with him. Tahir was that certain this was out. Short ball turns big outside off, Nyumbu goes for a cut and feathers a bottom edge to the keeper 196/10
