    42.1 is the fightback on? Fuller ball on the middle stump. Guptill comes forward and yorks himself as he is looking to force it away on the leg side. He has an exasperated expression at the end of it all. Waller has something to take back after the two dropped catches 222/4
    37.5 fifth time lucky for Zimbabwe! After letting off McCullum for four times, Sibanda holds a stunner at backward point by leaping to his left and getting hold of the ball with both his hands. The stint at NSW seems to have rubbed the Aussie superstitions on McCullum as he is dismissed for 87 206/2
    41.5 gone! Short ball outside the off stump. Taylor chases the wide delivery and manages to get a faint edge. Mutizwa holds on and Utseya manages a wry smile. Too late in the day or do we have time enough for a Zimbabwean turnaround? 222/3

    47.3 how unfortunate can a batsman get? It is one thing to be dismissed if the ball hits some part of the bowler and hits the stumps. It is quite another thing if the ball ricochets of your pad to the bowler and he whips the bails off. Expect to read about this dismissal in any kind of 'weird dismissal's list'. Unlucky Watling 253/5
    48.1 short outside the off stump. Franklin chases it in an attempt to cut it and gets an under edge back to the keeper 257/6
