    7.5 right through him, Junaid is pumped up, off stump is uprooted, Masakadza's tried to force one too many, was caught on the crease this time to a good length ball and was in an awkward position to play the punch down the ground, missed, and Junaid hit the top of off 42/2
    2.2 first man down, Irfan's short balls have been really quick, Sibanda's tried his favoured pull, but the top-edge has swirled high and straight, and keeper is right under as it comes down 6/1
    38.6 on length on middle, Taylor swept it and the leading edge would have gone well over the short fine leg fielder. But, it's Mohammad Irfan, who goes back a couple of steps and sticks his left hand out to take it easily. The big man catches the big fish 200/5
    14.6 Maruma's run himself out, really no single here, but he'd not been scoring much, pushed towards extra cover and set off, the man ran in, picked it up, and lobbed it to the keeper, Taylor sent Maruma back, but he had too much ground to recover 65/3
    26.6 short of length and quicker on middle, Williams comes down to turn it on the leg side but misses it completely and he is stumped easily by Sarfraz. He was finding the gaps and taking the aerial route pretty well, big wicket for Pakistan 135/4
    39.1 played on and two in two for Pakistan. It was a length ball on off and going away, Waller prods without footwork and the inside edge heads to the stumps. The umpires are checking for a no-ball and Junaid's heel is slightly inside the crease. Two big blows might have ended the chase for Zimbabwe 200/6
    39.3 big appeal for lbw and he's given. It hit him in front of the pads for sure after pitching on length but the umpire has made a mistake here as it pitched well outside leg, wasn't even marginal. Chigumbura tried to steer it on the on side, but has to walk back after a rough decision 201/7
    41.4 inside edge gets him this time. The change of angle might have done it here as it pitched on length and was going towards off but the inside edge sends the legs stump for a walk. The other bail - on off and middle - doesn't budge at all 206/8
    not out
    42.3 the keeper takes it now! It was short and outside off, Chatara tried to cut after it turned and an edge only found Sarfraz Ahmed's gloves 209/9
    42.4 flighted outside off on length, Vitori swept it with a big stride and a leading edge goes high up in the air behind the keeper. Irfan runs to his right from short third man and takes a good catch. All over for Zimbabwe 209/10
