    1.1 Got him first ball! Vitori pitches this full and just outside off stump. Rohit has a drive but ends up getting an edge which carries through to Vusi Sibanda at second slip. Rohit is out for 1. Let the No-hit comments begin. 2/1

    43.3 short of a length going down legside, yet Dhawan managed to drag it on to his stumps as he attempted to sweep down the leg side. His luck finally ran out, that too, ironically, through his own doing. Interesting as Zimbabwe have made it difficult for him to get out, despite the chances. But a brilliant hundred from the Indian opener nonetheless 237/6
    6.2 on a length on middle and off. Kohli tries to play through midwicket, and ends up spooning to Waller, who takes a catch. Kohli stands his ground and Malcolm Waller signals for a review from the umpire as it appears that the ball may have bounced before he took the catch. Just awaiting confirmation from the umpire. Hold on, it is out, and Kohli is walking back to the pavilion. It looked like it had not carried, but the umpires must have seen something that we didn't. Kohli is incensed as he walks back. This one will be talking point, that is certain. 35/2
    13.2 Rayudu's struggles are over, his feet didn't move as he looks to lash a ball outside off through the cover, ends up giving a soft catch to the man at cover, he had looked in good touch in his debut innings, but was far less fluent today 55/3
    16.4 Raina's gone now, India in more trouble, this length delivery set to be heading down leg again, before Raina tried to nudge it fine, and the keeper took a sharp take 65/4
    42.2 short of a length on middle and off. Dhawan tries to play square but doesn't get enough bat and goes for a quick single with Karthik running to the danger end. Taylor is able to pick up and throw from his end and run out Karthik. 232/5
    49.1 drops it short, should have been put away by Jadeja, who muscles that away but only as far as deep midwicket, perfectly picks out the fielder there 271/8
    45.5 some terrible cricket from India here, after only run in the over so far, Mishra decides to go for a big swing, a thick edge sends the ball swirling between the keeper and short third man, Jadeja races back for the third, Mishra hadn't wanted it initially, he has to go for it though, the throw is wide but still there's enough time to comfortably run out Mishra 251/7

    20.1 first ball of a new spell and Unadkat has struck, Sibanda has thrown it away, he was looking to loft a short of length delivery over midwicket, but his weak drive ends up as an overhead catch to the man there, the partnership is broken and Unadkat gets his second 109/2
    10.4 short of a length and Raza goes for a pull, but ends up hitting it off the bottom edge and spooning up to Shikhar Dhawan, who ran from square leg to midwicket who completes a fine diving catch. Short and wide, but Unadkat has managed to pick up a wicket, and the first blow for Zimbabwe in this chase. 45/1
    28.1 what a soft dismissal that was, that too from the set batsman, Masakadza has been tinkering with the sweep for a while now, once more he doesn't connect properly, the ball loops to short fine leg for a comfortable catch, Zimbabwe chase in tatters now 130/5
    20.5 is that a run-out, that will be a senseless loss for Zimbabwe if it is, the ball dropped off Taylor's pads and rolled along the pitch, Taylor set off for a run, there was never a run there, Masakadza knows that and sends back Taylor, who races back along with Unadkat, Taylor dives but Unadkat's under-arm throw catches him short, and in a matter of minutes the wind has been knocked out of the Zimbabwe chase 109/3
    26.1 oh dear, the reverse-sweep doesn't come off, Jadeja as always fires it fairly straight and on the stumps, Williams misses, pitching on off and spinning just a touch towards leg, there's a massive appeal, the umpire takes his time to decide, the ball rolls wide of slip, Williams decides to chance a single, no way there was a single there, in any case the umpire lifts his finger signalling the lbw, otherwise he would have been run out 127/4
    30.2 another batsman falls going for the sweep, the googly once more does the job, he was late in playing the shot and the ball has almost spun past and struck him on the thigh, that was going on to take leg stump, huge lbw appeal and the umpire doesn't need much time to decide that's out 133/6
    48.1 at long last India have dismissed Chigumbura, the first time they have managed to do it in four innings, it was a back of a length ball that rose up outside off, nicked through to the keeper, Chigumbura's resistance is over 221/7

    49.4 terrific delivery from Unadkat, homing in on the base of off stump, far too good for Jarvis, the stumps rattle, Jarvis is on his way 236/8
    49.5 Unadkat gets another one, Brian Vitori has gone for a golden duck, looked to swipe that one to the leg side, he misses and again the stumps are disturbed 236/9
