    29.3 well, well, that is the unlikeliest of wicket-taking deliveries, but it still gets Bangladesh the breakthrough, Mawoyo has thrown away a debut 50, it was short, wide, nothing delivery actually, he had to reach out a long way to get to it, and cut it straight to sweeper cover who accepted it happily 102/1
    48.2 oh then, guess what, another short and wide ball that gets one more breakthrough, Sibanda has thrown away a maiden Test hundred, chasing a wide one from the crease with an attempted cut and getting an edge through to Rahim 162/2
    103.6 Masakadza is gone, finally Bangladesh have broken through, the full length it is, the full length that makes Masakadza drive away from the body for once, and it moves away late to produce the edge that flies to wide slip, who moves to his left to snap the sharp take, first Test wicket for Robiul, he is relieved 304/3
    111.2 Zimbabwe are falling apart here, now Taylor departs, it is the cut that has consumed him, shortish and wide, moving away from him, he reaches out to have a go at it, and gets an edge that a tumbling Rahim does very well to take, Bangladesh are delighted, not much has been going their way till now 317/5
    110.5 Mahmudullah has struck right away, flighted around middle and leg with the angle, and straightens sharply to strike him on the pad, Ervine was pushing forward outside the line, and the umpire sends him back 317/4
    125.1 Shakib takes the big one, turn and bounce outside off, the length was full enough to draw Taibu forward and Shakib got enough bite out of the surface to make him edge with an open face to slip who gobbled it up 352/8
    115.3 the pressure is getting to Zimbabwe, Elton tries to hit his way out of trouble, goes down forcefully on a knee for the sweep from around leg stump, but the top edge loops tamely to deep backward square leg, who seems to have it covered, but it pops out of his hands, he dives forward and scrambles to hold on to the ball eventually as he falls to the ground 326/6
    120.2 Rubel has struck, caught on the crease to the one coming in off a length with the angle, hit high on the front pad, Bangladesh appeal right away, umpire Dharmasena takes some time before raising the finger, Price is shaking his head as he walks off 344/7

    129.6 this swing will find the man in the deep, Vitori comes down the track and hits with the turn but straight to deep midwicket 368/9
    130.6 Zimbabwe's innings is over, Mpofu gets forward again but this one is fired full down the leg side, Rahim has the bails off quickly even as Mpofu's back foot goes out, easy decision for the third umpire, neat work from Rahim 370/10

    10.3 gone! superb catch at second slip, it is the captain who does it for Zimbabwe, Vitori gets reward for some lovely bowling, angles it in on a length around middle and off and gets it to leave Tamim, who gets forward to have a push at it, and ends up edging it between first and second slip from where Taylor dives low to snap up the chance 36/2
    4.1 Vitori is being mobbed by his team-mates, he has struck early on debut, lovely delivery, banged in short of a length, holding its line close to off, Kayes has to play at it, the ball takes the high part of the bat and goes at a nice height to first slip who is a touch wide as well 13/1
    41.3 Price has struck, and what an unfortunate dismissal for Nafees, well, he had survived several close moments earlier, he went for the sweep this time, but the ball popped up off the bat on to the body, and remained in the air for a while before disturbing the off bail, Taibu was waiting for that and leaped for joy as soon as he saw that 102/3
    66.1 Ashraful has thrown away a superb patient innings, nothing shot, shortish delivery giving him some width outside off stump, he tried to run it past the well-manned slip cordon with a dab and only got a feather and Taibu happily accepted it, huge wicket for Zimbabwe, Ashraful was looking like going on and on, and right away he knew he had played a bad shot and put hand on his helmet as he walked off 190/5
    54.4 Vitori gets his third, oh well, what a delivery to get a wicket, short, half-tracker really, sitting up tamely, he should have smashed it through midwicket, but pulled it a touch off-balance straight to the man in front of square leg, Zimbabwe celebrate 136/4
    83.3 pitched up close to off, and he has the reward right away, not very full for the drive, but not short as well, Shakib was caught half-forward and tried to carve it away even as the angle was taking it past him, and edged it through to Taibu, Mpofu and Price do a little jig as they celebrate, they know how big a wicket this is 246/6
    90.4 well, the short ball has brought them a wicket, half-tracker, but bouncing big on Rahim, he was not in position to play the pull, and with men in the deep square on the leg side, it wasn't a great choice to play a half-hearted shot that tamely swirled to deepish square leg 266/8
    87.6 Mpofu has got his man, he is overjoyed, it was the full delivery from wide of the crease, Razzak was caught on the crease by those short ones and tried to push the full toss away belatedly as it homed in for the pads, but could not, and that is an easy decision for the umpire, he was struck low around middle and that was gone 258/7
    93.6 got 'em, Jarvis gets his first Test wicket, off a good delivery too, angled in, pitched up, holding its line and shatters the off stump before Shafiul can defend it with a forward push 275/9

    27.4 right through him, and off stump is uprooted, he came half-forward to drive this length delivery, it wasn't full enough, and the ball sneaked in through the gap between bat and pad, and Robiul has something to celebrate 79/2
    21.6 Rubel gets reward for some good bowling, but not off a great delivery, short ball banged in, there to be put away, and Sibanda pulls it to midwicket who gets low to his left to snap the sharp chance, he's thrown his wicket away both innings now, and after batting so well 69/1
    32.1 Shakib strikes, Masakadza is gone, it was fired in full around middle and leg, Masakadza pushed forward to defend towards the leg side, went at it a touch hard, it turned and looped tamely back in the air to Shakib 83/3

    33.6 and another one, Bangladesh spinners getting in to the act now, the one before was ripped across Price, this one was tossed up similarly, around off stump, but it went straight in to strike Price on the pad, on the back foot, and that is plumb 92/4
    74.3 that is gone, Taibu falls in search of some runs, but he has put Zimbabwe in control here, Shafiul angled it wide across the right-hander from a full length, inviting the drive, and Taibu launched in to it furiously, only to hit it straight to the man at deepish extra cover, the change in angle working right away for Bangladesh 205/5

    13.5 bowled 'em, Mpofu has gone for a run after uprooting Tamim's off stump, the changed angle has worked, Mpofu angles it in from a length, Tamim opts to shoulder arms, the leaving has been generally very good in this game, but to Tamim's horror, it carried on coming in with the angle to shatter the off stump, Zimbabwe's joy is boundless, they have got the big one 65/1
    21.3 Jarvis has some reward for some lovely bowling, gets it to jag away from a length on off stump, have to play at those, and Taibu snaps up the healthy edge, Price jumps straight in to Jarvis and almost takes him down 87/2
    25.6 now it is Jarvis' turn to take off on a run, that angle from round the stumps is working well for Zimbabwe, Jarvis goes really wide of the crease and hurls it in on a length, Nafees has to play at it and goes forward to drive it, but it bends back in even further, and sneaks between bat and pad to take out middle 102/3
    38.5 that is the end of Ashraful, Vitori has plugged and plugged away outside the off stump, one going away, another holding its line, yet another jagging back in, this one started to curl back in a touch from just short of a length, Ashraful shuffled well across and tried to push it away with the angle, a bit away from the body, but the late movement did him in, and the inside edge clattered in to the off stump and took it out 140/4
    49.3 they are falling apart now, Mpofu fires in the full delivery on the stumps, Rahim sets himself up for the flick, and hits it straight in the air to square leg, Price and Mpofu do the celebratory jig and tap their legs together 174/7
    47.4 Mpofu gets his man, Mahmudullah perishes outside off, he had been going after wide deliveries, saw this one pitched a bit short and went for the cut without any foot movement, and it bounced to take the edge on its way to Taibu, who celebrates and is lifted off the ground by a delighted Price 167/5
    48.4 that could be the game, Shakib falls to a nothing shot, he has been threatening to do this right from the time he came in, and has perished outside off stump, length ball going across some way outside off, no need to do anything with it, but he goes pushing at it with an angled blade, and second slip gets low and forward to his right to accept the gift, Taylor takes out his opposite number and celebrates 174/6
    54.1 bowled 'em, Elton goes through his defenses, Razzak's cameo is over, full delivery on the stumps from round the wicket, he goes for another big hoick over mid on, misses, and the ball clatters in to off stump 224/8
    55.1 and Jarvis goes through Shafiul's defenses first ball after lunch, he has shown so much potential in his debut Test, pitched up around middle, holding its line, and taking out the middle stump as the batsman tries to push at it from the crease 228/9
