    13.6 gone this time! Simmons sliced at this one, but still hit it very hard. The ball flew low towards Ervine at long off, never getting more than fifteen feet off the ground. Ervine sprinted forward and timed his dive really well to pluck the ball out of the air inches from the turf. He gets a big hug from a smiling bowler for his efforts. 92/4
    3.2 not this time! Having pinged the cover boundary, Charles looks to launch this into the clear blue sky beyond deep midwicket, but a full length delivery beats his hoick and rattles the stumps. It was a horrid stroke, to be honest, and young Chatara is very pleased with the dismissal. 19/1
    9.2 well held by Taylor! Bravo attempted to repeat the stroke, but this time went at it a little too hard and send a swirling top edge up in the region of short third man. Taylor immediately set off after it, and timed his dive to perfection to hold the catch. The Zimbabwe captain failed a fitness test before this tour, but he was after this in double quick time! 61/2
    12.2 and the field change brings a wicket! Barnwell stepped right away to leg, looking to hammer a cut through the sparse cover field, but Utseya looped the offspinner down straight and true, the ball spinning in to rattle the stumps. Barnwell tried too hard to manufacture something there. 79/3

    18.2 relief for Zimbabwe! Sammy waits in the crease and sets himself to blast this one straight, but slices underneath the ball and long off holds onto a high chance. It's not the wicket Zimbabwe wanted, but right now, it'll do! 148/5
    18.4 Mutombodzi gets another! Russell didn't bother to give himself a sighter, slog-sweeping his first ball high to midwicket, but straight into the wind. Ervine got under it, and held the catch cleanly. 149/6
    19.1 that's a decent start! Mpofu slings down an inswinging yorker, at no great pace but aimed right at the toes. Ramdin jabbed down at it, but not quickly enough to protect his stumps. 155/7

    3.1 too much risk! Chibhabha backs away once again, but Badree just fired this flat and straight and the ball rushed on to disturb the timber. 17/1
    5.3 gone! Sibanda, like Chibhabha before him, perishes trying to cut Badree. Unlike Chibhabha, he gets bat on the cut, but it's uppish and Bravo takes a good, stooping catch at point. He's pretty pleased by his own efforts, immediately setting off on a merry jig, but Sibanda is livid as he trudges off. 25/2

    7.2 a soft dismissal! Did this ball stop on Taylor? He just pushed forward at it, trying to place a drive through the on side but popping a very tame chance straight to Sammy at short extra cover off the leading edge. Zimbabwe slide further ... 33/3
    12.5 this went miles in the air! Ervine backed away again, and aimed to hit a full delivery to midwicket. The slog was top-edged, however, going almost straight up. Bravo himself called for it, taking the catch right next to the non-striker's stumps. Barring a miracle, this game surely belongs to West Indies now, with Zimbabwe needing 91 from 43 balls and struggling to reach the boundary. 68/4
    16.1 oh dear. Good shot, atrocious running. Waller spanks a handsome drive over extra cover, but turns and takes the second run very slowly ... the throw comes in, and the ambling batsman is caught well short of his crease. I think Waller just lost sight of the ball there. If he'd pushed harder, he'd have been home easily. 91/5
    16.6 Mutombodzi is completely out-foxed by Bravo, who holds a simple catch. It was the slower one, and he was into the shot way too early. He lapped the ball almost straight up, and Bravo was under it. 94/6
