    18.2 got him, cleaned bowled, Sibanda cleaned up! It was full and straight, nothing more complex than that but it seemed to befuddle Sibanda, who'd looked so good, he played around it and pop went the bails 76/2
    11.1 round the wicket, drifting across, gripped and bowled 'im! Narine makes the breakthrough, it wasn't his most threatening delivery ever bowled but Chibhabha had been getting visibly bogged down, he tried to drive but wasn't to the pitch and he actually played inside the line, the ball skidding on to peg back off stump 39/1
    40.3 Bravo breaks through! A tame dismissal after what has been a good knock. Masakadza was looking to hurry things along, and made room as Bravo looped down a slow offcutter. The barrel-chested batsman hoicked across the line at it, and a swirling top edge was easily held by Narine running in from third man. This was turning into a really useful stand for the Zimbabweans. 186/4
    18.4 and another, two in three balls, Taylor pinned in front! Decides not to review and that was probably wise (though how often does the captain take that route?) ... It was a fullish length ball, drifting back in with the arm, skidded on a little and Taylor played down the wrong line, hit on the back leg in front of off and that would have tipped the cap of leg 76/3
    45.4 gone! Bravo strikes, and Zimbabwe suffer a double blow. Bravo fired this one down full and fast, and in fact the ball was a full toss aimed right at the middle of the stumps. Ervine backed away and swung, but his bat flashed over the ball and his stumps were disturbed. Bravo has his fourth, and West Indies are right back into the game. Zimbabwe don't have a lot of firepower in their lower middle order. 241/6

    45 gone this time! A little too cute from Waller. He made room and was aiming to run the ball through the vacant slip region, but it was another slower one and he was at it too soon. The ball crept past him and rattled the stumps. The celebration from Roach isn't the most expressive. 232/5
    49.1 Bravo has five! Chakabva attempts to repeat the big shot from the last over, but he slices too far underneath it and Pollard holds onto a steepler. Pollard called for it straight away, and settled underneath the ball as it plummeted down. The Zimbabweans had to go for everything in this final over, but Chakabva's efforts will have been appreciated by his team. 268/7

    49.5 six for Bravo! Yet another slower delivery, and Jarvis made to room to try to carve the ball over cover. He didn't get close to timing it, however, tapping a limp catch straight to Dwayne's younger brother Darren. 271/8

    25.4 well taken by Taylor! Powell was rooted to the crease as he looked to blast this length delivery into the leg side, and all he could do was feather an edge through to Taylor, who is up to the stumps. He holds onto a sharp reflex catch, and Masakadza has broken through for Zimbabwe! 111/1

    26 he's got another one! A double strike for Masakadza! Taylor bellows his celebration as he holds another great catch behind the stumps, and Masakadza is beaming from ear to ear as he's mobbed by his team-mates. The ball left Bravo ever so slightly off the track as he pressed forward with an angled bat, taking a thin edge. Plucky slow medium pace and some great keeping has brought Zimbabwe right back into this. 111/2
    43.2 is this run out? It is! Marvellous work from Utseya. Deonarine flicked the ball towards mid on, and Utseya himself charged after it, turning and throwing down the stumps in one movement. Surely, surely, surely they will send this one upstairs? Yes, Umpire Cloete asks for a replay, and Deonarine is short. That's not the end of the drama, though, as for some reason a 'Not Out' signal flashes on the big screen even as a red light is flashing to indicate the batsman is out ... which he is, and eventually he trudges off. 219/3
