    48.5 finally Zimbabwe take a catch as Nicol swings another full ball towards deep midwicket, Shingi holds on to end a very controlled innings by Nicol, he is clapped off by the fielding side 353/5
    23.4 Guptill has thrown it away again, he said he was grumpy after getting out on 70 in the previous game, he'll be more grumpy here after pulling a half-tracker on middle into the hands of Shingi who took a good running catch on the fence 131/1
    32.4 Chakabva does what Chigumbura couldn't and takes a simple catch running in from the long-on boundary as Oram skied the long hop outside off high, but he should take a bow for a devastating knock which has completely overwhelmed Zimbabwe 208/2
    38.3 this is outside off and McCullum gets down again and tries to send it over midwicket but finds Shingi well inside the boundary 246/3
    41 Williamson tried to loft this over long-on after coming down but ends up picking out the fielder, slight stemming of the runs by Zimbabwe as they chip away 261/4
    49.3 he misses out on a maiden ODI fifty but a sparky knock from Latham, he backed away again and tried to hit through the covers, Shingi pitched it full and beat the drive to knock the stumps over 364/6

    1.4 good length ball outside off, gives himself a bit of room and throws the kitchen sink at it, but can't get it over a leaping Brownlie at point, Zimbabwe again lose a wicket early 5/1
    4.2 horrible swipe at a good length ball on the stumps, gets a thick top edge which looks like it will fall short of third man running in but Ellis makes good ground and dives full stretch with both hands to take it inches from the grass 12/2
    13.3 another one goes, Chakabva was completely beaten by a full in-dipper from Oram which struck him on middle as he lost balance, sliding into the leg stump after pitching very full 35/4
    6.5 Brendon takes out Brendan, he tries it again to a ball closer to off, gets a big top edge which skies high in the air behind the wicket, McCullum thinks he's under it before diving to take it with both hands 17/3
    35.3 well the Batting Powerplay again brings the bowling team a wicket, Taibu rocked back and pulled a short ball, but ended up sending it down long-off's throat 142/6
    19.1 loose stroke, outside off and swinging away, Waller wafts without moving the feet and gets a snick through to Baz, half the Zimbabweans back in the hut 62/5
