    25.2 Sibanda commits suicide. He was looking good, and Zim aren't in a situation where they have to hit everything. He jumps out to this one, doesn't get to the flight but still tries to heave the loft over long-on. No luck, he finds the fielder in the deep and Yasir Shah has his first ODI wicket. 110/1
    30.2 dismissal, soft as a baby's bottom. Chamu has chipped a friendly length ball on off stump against the turn, inside out, straight into the hands of cover standing in the circle. Zimbabwe are losing too many wickets too quickly. 133/3
    28.3 the in-form Taylor is gone. That's a cruel blow for Zim. Taylor tried to be innovative there, he was looking to guide a ball just outside off through to third man, manufacturing room as he set himself up beside the line. He couldn't get enough on it, and feathered it through to the keeper. 120/2
    38.5 Zimbabwe are disintegrating here, and it all down to inexperience. Slower ball from Sohail, Masakadza spotted it, but couldn't resist himself from pulling. Straight to Misbah at midwicket in the circle. 179/5
    37.5 Younis Khan, take a bow! And they actually dropped this man from their team. He may be old, he may be close to the end of his career, but he's still among the fittest guys in this side. Short from Yasir, but he has the ability to skid along faster than you'd imagine. That's what spoiled Taibu's heaved sweep, but he should have still been safe. Someone forgot to tell Younis who zipped across to his right, dived full length and plucked it. 176/4
    44.1 the stumps go for a walk around the Harare Sports Club. Straight, length ball, challenging Waller to go for the cross-batted heave. He does and misses. The stumps are messed up. So are Zimbabwe's hopes. 208/7
    42.3 Elton has perished. Short ball again from Cheema, but no width this time. Elton went for the pull, and looped it off the top edge to deep midwicket. Zim sink further. 196/6
    not out
    46.2 Price backs away and shows Cheema all his stumps. Cheema obliges by messing them up. He has four wickets. 225/8
    49.2 Hafeez has the plot safely in his briefcase though. Flat ball aimed at the stumps, Jarvis misses the cut and timber meets leather. 238/9
    not out
