    16.6 good length delivery pitches and comes back in and takes the off stump for a toss as Taibu played down the wrong line. 53/3
    24.2 once again he flicks it in the air down to fine leg and this time Franklin runs in and takes a good low catch. 83/4

    36.3 good length ball on the middle stump. Though he has the runs next to his name, Waller has struggled to pick the length today. This time too, he errs in picking the length and is early into the ugly hoick to midwicket. The ball hits the timber and Waller has to walk back 169/5
    42.6 McKay deceives Chigumbura with a fuller ball! Chigumbura is expecting a short delivery as he is waiting on the backfoot. McKay slips in a fuller ball outside the off stump. Chigumbura looks to drive though he is in no position to drive. He gets an inside edge onto the middle and leg stump 209/6

    47.5 short ball on the middle and off. Meth pulls it right into the hands of deep midwicket fielder. Nothing much that he could have done really as Taylor with a hundred looming, isn't going for the strokes. It was all left to Meth and the pressure gets to him 238/7
    49.1 good length ball outside the off stump. Utseya moves across to play it on the leg side and gets an outside edge back to the keeper 245/8

    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
