    19.5 fuller length just outside off. Jamshed gets forward to drive through cover, but with minimal footwork, as he ends up getting a thin edge, which carries to the keeper. The Zimbabweans go up instantly and the umpire confirms the decision with a raise of the finger. Big wicket for Zimbabwe 80/2
    14.5 nicely done, Utseya gets the breakthrough after the dropped catches, floats it up across from round the stumps, Shehzad drawn into a hard push, drags the back foot out as he misses, it is pinned just outside the line as Taylor breaks the stumps, square-leg umpire gives it right away 56/1
    37.4 gone now, slower one does it, it was bowled very wide, Hafeez tried to run it between backward point and short third man but only spooned it up to the latter 179/3

    38.4 Amin is gone on the second run, after facing just one ball, it was always going to a tight attempt as they decided to go for the additional run after a whip behind square leg, the throw was at the right end, the bowler's, and was spot-on, Amin had a long way to cover, he didn't help himself at all by hesitating in responding to Misbah's push for the second 184/4
    41.4 he's had one swipe too many at these length deliveries, and edged this one into the keeper's gloves 198/5
    43.2 hello, how is this even possible, calling this a blinder is a huge understatement, Sohail has bashed this widish length delivery, Utseya is there at shortish extra cover for the uppish drive, but this is a full-blown cross-batted thunderblow, Utseya has leapt to his right, taken it one-handed, and come down on earth with the ball lodged safely in his hands, once he realises it has stuck, he allows himself a relieved celebration, holding arms aloft 202/6
    47.5 he's been given by the third umprire, Sarfraz had set off for what seemed to be a dangerous second in front of square leg, but looked to have made it with a massive dive before Taylor took the bails off, taking the ball in front of the stumps, that didn't make for easy decision making on the replays, but at worst there was doubt on this one, and at best, Sarfraz's bat was safely in, stunned glances all around from Pakistan, from Sarfraz, Misbah, and Whatmore 223/7

    37.4 short of a length pitching just outside off. Hamilton, who makes a last minute adjustment to get on the back foot, hits this directly to Misbah, who is stationed at short cover. Still eight wickets in hand, but Zimbabwe would have badly wanted Hamilton to push on for at least a hundred. Pakistan with an opportunity here to tilt the scales 176/2
    23.3 there is the wicket! He does it all the time, Saeed Ajmal! After two straightish deliveries, Ajmal sends down the conventional delivery and Vusi had no clue about that. He stayed back in the crease, saw the ball turning in after pitching, but played outside the line to be hit straight in front of off and middle. Easy decision for the umpire 107/1

    42.6 he goes after it again and this time the leading edge falls into the hands of Ahmed Shehzad at point after taking the aerial route. An innings full of edges and tension comes to an end 201/3
