    0.2 Junaid needs just two deliveries, and umpire Davis raises the finger, similar delivery, pitched outside leg, zoomed across the right-hander, was even closer to him this time, there was a noise as it passed him, and flew to the keeper, could have hit the back thigh pad, Mawoyo was casually walking towards square leg even as Pakistan were appealing, he did not seem to think he was in trouble, replays suggest it was the thigh pad 0/1
    16.2 he's dragged it on! Sibanda goes for an aggressive shot and pays the price, it was short outside off and angling across from over the wicket, Sibanda shaped to pull but ended up getting an inside edge, the ball hits the base of the leg stump, he's on his knee after hearing the death rattle 31/2
    52.4 well Ajmal finally strikes, in his 13th over, tossed up from round the wicket, Masakadza comes forward to defend, outside edge goes to first slip, Hafeez falls to his right and takes it 141/3
    66.1 And there's the big wicket. It was marginal, but the umpire judges it to be out and Taylor is on his way. Taylor goes for a sweep against this lovely, loopy ball, but he misses it and is struck on the pads. He had a decent stride forward and the impact seemed marginal, oh wait, it is actually a shade outside off. A little unlucky there, but that was a lovely ball. 176/5
    63.4 And the plan's worked. This is just back of a length and well outside off, but Waller goes after it with almost no feet at all. The ball shaves the outside edge of the bat and Akmal dives to his left to pick up a good catch. The umpires double check to make sure it isn't a no ball, and oh, that was close. Junaid had just the smallest bit of his heel behind the line. 172/4
    78.6 that straight really low, not much Chigumbura could do about that one, it was pretty short that delivery but didn't rise more than a few inches above Chigumbura's ankles, he was looked to play that off the back foot but the ball was far lower than he expected, takes out the middle stump, did that hit a crack? Zimbabwe's chances playing out the day take a beating 203/7
    69.5 not this time. Junaid has been impeccable outside the off stump and he continues to reap reward. The batsman was late with his defense again, but this time his edge goes right into the keeper's gloves. 187/6
    96.4 that's not the best short ball he's bowled, but it gets the wicket. Rahat Ali's practice ahead of play today has paid off as he holds on to a good catch on the fine leg boundary. Utseya's pull was almost instinctive, but he hasn't bothered to keep it down and pays the ultimate price 248/9
    87.5 amd just as I say that, his off stump is ripped out of the ground, through the bat-pad gap as he looked to defence and the ball lasers into off stump, Panyangara's resistance is over at 24, vital runs on a track that should get progressively difficult to bat on 234/8
    109.5 length ball bang on middle and Chatara, playing outside the line, is hit on the pads and looks plumb. The umpire confirms this straight away as Zimbabwe's resistance finally ends 294/10

    38.5 Appeal for a run-out! Manzoor stayed back and tucked it with the turn towards short square leg and sets off, Younis isn't interested and Manzoor has to hurry back, Chigumbura runs from leg gully, gathers and fires it to the keeper Mutambami while still on the turf and Manzoor is short of his crease when the stumps are broken. However, there's a doubt whether the keeper broke the stumps with his body before the ball can make contact with it, the third umpire has several replays to decide and he is convinced that was a legal dismissal 96/3
    10.5 edged to slip and a fine delivery to get rid of him! Vitori this time gets it to shape away from the right-hander, he landed it on middle and forced Hafeez to play at it, on the corridor of uncertainty, Masakadza takes it comfortably at first slip 29/1
    23.1 and he strikes straight away. Trapped right in front and the Umpire thinks so as well. This was bowled at a good length and moved just a touch in to the batsman. His attempted flick off the pads met only air as he was struck in line and was sent on his way 62/2
    97.4 brain fade from Younis here as a length ball on middle and leg, which he tries to work through square leg, ends up hitting it early and getting a top-edge which carries to Tino Mawoyo at short mid off. Zimbabwe will be over the moon with that wicket 212/6
    80.2 full delivery outside off and Misbah, drawn into the drive with the intention of playing through extra-cover, ends up getting an outside edge which is snapped up by first slip 182/4
    93.3 beaten for inward movement! The umpire checks for the front foot no-ball and Shafiq has to go, Chatara delivered from wide of the crease and angled it in, it may have landed on a crack, a puzzled Shafiq very half-heartedly pokes his bat out and the ball snuck between bat and body and pegged back the off stump, Chatara didn't show any emotion, like it hadn't registered 211/5
    102.4 the plan has worked! Vitori, who is attacking Adnan from round the wicket, is able to induce an edge from Adnan as he pitches this up just outside off, with Adnan not learning from the previous blunder, and ends up getting a thick outside edge which carries to the second slip at a comfortable height 224/8
    97.5 And he gets him first ball! Panyangara on a hat-trick! He pitches this slightly on a fuller length on middle and off, but this one jags back appreciably as Rehman offers no shot, and ends up getting pinned on the crease. This one looked adjacent from the start, and the umpire confirms this moments after. 212/7
    104.2 full length ball just outside off as Ajmal , looking to play a drive down the ground, ends up getting a thin edge on the way to the keeper. Bowler and keeper appeal in unison, and Pakistan are now 9 down and are still trailing by 65 runs 229/9
    104.5 well, i said a chance goes begging... back of a length on middle and off. Rahat is unable to squeeze it away as he is cramped for space, and ends up inside edging onto his off stump. Vitori picks up his first five-wicket haul, and only in his fourth Test match 230/10

    48.6 given this time! It kept low after pitching on length outside off and was angled in. The bat came down a bit too late as it hit him right in front of off stump on the back pad. Finally a wicket for Pakistan 117/2
    5.3 straight to short midwicket! It was full on the pads, Utseya drove on the leg side with a lean forward and it went straight to the fielder placed there for that shot. Zimbabwe's makeshift opening combination hasn't worked here 13/1
    49.4 Masakadza gone now! It pitched short of length on middle and leg and Masakadza wanted to defend it on the front foot but his bat missed the line as it struck him just in front of the off stump. Very very close to say if it would have hit off or missed it 121/3
    50.2 third wicket in nine balls. It pitched on length on middle, Panyangara came forward to defend it and an inside edge went straight to short leg for an easy catch. And it's stumps 121/4
    81.3 oh, he's gone! good, low catch at gully. This one was as far in the batsman's arc as possible and wide too. Taylor can't help himself as he drives at it, but the ball finds Azhar Ali's safe hands in gully 177/8
    59.2 full delivery on and around off. Sibanda, who was enticed once before this over, succumbs to temptation and ends up getting a thin outside edge as he looks to play a drive through long off. Big wicket for Pakistan as Sibanda is a decent batsman and could potentially have built a substantial innings here 136/5
    66.1 Ajmal strikes first ball! He came round the wicket, pitched it short and flat outside off and Waller went back to cut it straight to point where Manzoor took easily it over his head 149/6
    71.5 gone this time, gets the outside edge. He pitched in on length on middle and it was angling away, Chigumbura kept the bat in front of the stumps but the angle was enough to take the outside edge and go straight to Akmal. Seven down now Zimbabwe 156/7
    88.5 gone! Ajmal has his man. Mutumbami looks to nudge the wrong 'un into the on side for a single, but all he manages is a leading edge as Abdur Rehman jogs around at cover to take an dolly of a catch 199/9
    89.5 and he's given it away. Rahat has five! Top edge, safely pouched by the keeper. Chatara rushes at this one, pitched just short of a length and he goes for a hoick over cow corner. Can't get it anywhere near the middle as the ball shoots up in the air and Akmal runs around to take it 199/10

    22.2 gets the big wicket with the field placement! He pitched it on length outside off and the turn took bat and pad and went straight to short leg for catching practice as Manzoor leaned forward to defend. Long and slow walk back for him 90/3
    7.4 mid-on takes it this time, first wicket for Zimbabwe. Chatara mixed it well with a fuller delivery as it was full on the pads, Hafeez flicked and a leading edge ballooned to mid-on 30/1
    11.2 peach of a delivery from Chatara! Azhar Ali has gone for a duck. Chatara pitched it on length on off and it was angled in so Azhar played for it but the ball held its line and struck the top of off stump which went for a walk 46/2
    25.5 Younis is gone, he's bowled down the leg side, would you believe it. It pitched just outside leg and Younis wanted to run it down to fine leg while moving across but missed it completely and his leg stump has gone for a walk 100/4

    39.2 he's edged it and Mutumbami has taken it. Captain Brendan Taylore in his excitement has knocked the wicket-taker into the ground. This was just a tad shorter and Shafiq made some room for himself to cut it, but he could only manage an edge. Crucial blow there from Zimbabwe 133/5
    52.2 Chatara strikes early! He pitched it short from outside off and angled it in, it came in enough to hit him on the knee roll right in front of off stump, wouldn't have gone anywhere else but the stumps. Zimbabwe need four more of those 163/6
    68.4 gone this time, Rehman edges it to the keeper. It was a teasing line on off and angling away, Rehman put his right foot forward to defend and it took the outside edge to the keeper, carries this time and straight into the gloves 197/7
    74.1 there's wicket No. 8, Ajmal is the man to go, that stayed a bit low from Chatara, Ajmal was caught on the crease, struck on the knee roll by that one, huge appeal, upheld, and Chatra has run all the way to the rope in celebration, Zimbabwe are two wickets away now 214/8
    80.4 the new ball has done it and so has Chatara! It was straighter this time and on length, Junaid defended it, covering his stumps and a thick outside edge goes straight to Malcolm Waller at gully 238/9
