    43.5 The Batting Powerplay strikes twice! Taylor is gone now, and that's a huge wicket for Bangladesh. Full from Rubel, but angling in towards middle and leg. So unlike the first ball of the over, when he went over mid-on, he was forced to go over the leg side. He ends up holing out to long-on running forward and to his right to take a really good low, tumbling catch inches from the ground. 184/6
    8.5 Sibanda goes! By itself, he played a lovely shot there, going down on a knee and square-driving with style. Unfortunately, Shafiul got this to deviate just enough to kiss the outside edge and fly to the right of Mushfiqur who tumbles away and takes it. Muted celebrations from Bangladesh as Vusi walks off. 40/1
    12.5 what a strange dismissal! Masakadza is gone for a duck. Easily the worst ball of the over. It was short, it angled in towards leg stump and then turned further away. Masakadza could have easily let it go. But he chose to attempt a paddle-pull-sweep of sorts. He went really hard at it, even as Mushfiqur quickly moved to his left to cover the line. Did he nick it? Must have been a feather at best. Mushfiqur went up in a huge appeal as soon as he caught it. His vocal chords were in trouble by the time the umpire Chirombe decided to give it out. 53/2
    17.4 suicide! Taibu is gone at the stroke of drinks, lurching up and down the track like a man already very drunk. Short ball outside off, Taibu cuts it to the left of Nasir at cover and bounds out like an energiser bunny. Taylor wasn't fully sold on the idea, Taibu hesitated, then started again and was near the middle of the pitch by the time Nasir had the ball after diving away, and lined up a throw to Mushfiqur. Taibu eventually tried to get back in, but it was too late. 69/3
    21.4 Shakib has been bowling all sorts of things today, every other ball is a variation! This was the classic left-armer's dismissal, a slow drifting left-arm spinner than curled in towards off stump before landing short of a length and breaking away. Mutizwa was sucked into the drive and got a feather through to Mushfiqur who again takes it and yells in joy. 89/4
    43.3 Elton's stay ends. He's sleep-walked through this innings. That's the first real shot of intent he's played today, and he's holed out. Short ball angling in, it was there to be carted away, and he took on the man at deep midwicket. He could not clear him though, and Nasir, as we all know, is a really good fielder. 183/5
    45.2 Waller is out hit wicket! Today's been a day for strange dismissals, and here's the strangest of them all. It was the surprise effort bouncer from Rubel, Waller was clearly late in spotting it and played an ungainly late pull, that was more of a waft in front of his face even as he went back in the crease. He ended up hitting the stumps with the bat as he played that pull ... 196/7
    46.3 Utseya doesn't prosper! Zim have lost five wickets in the last ten minutes or so. What an ugly heave across the line too. Shafiul kept it straight and on a length, hoping that Utseya would miss it and the batsman obliges with a blind slog that middles the air, and nothing else. Nine down. 196/9
    45.4 implosion central at Bulawayo. The umpires are having another look, but Price might be on the way here. Short of a length outside off, it holds its line, doesn't do much off the strip as Price pokes at it from the crease. Thick outside edge taken, and Mushfiqur does extremely well to dive away and pluck it as he tumbles. Not sure what the umpires were checking for there. Straightforward dismissal that. 196/8
    48.2 all over. That's the end of Zimbabwe's innings, and they have capsized from a potential 250 total to 199. Nothing stroke from Jarvis, looks to make room and cart Razzak over the covers. He misses, Razzak hits. 199/10

    20.6 Price has struck with an unending appeal and Tamim is on his way. Not a bad decision by the looks of it from umpire Chirombe. It was speared in from round the stumps, full and on leg stump. Not much turn, it seemed headed for middle and off as Tamim missed the sweep. It took some convincing since Tamim was well forward, but the umpire eventually raised the finger. 122/3
    4.4 Kayes was playing Russian roulette, and inevitably he's found the bullet. Back of a length ball outside off, he refuses to let three balls go on the trot and launches on on-the-up drive. He finds cover. 46/1
    9.6 Jarvis takes an absolute blitz of a catch running back from mid on. Junaid jumps out, gets to the flight and looks to send the ball into orbit. He nearly does too, the ball spends an eternity in the air before descending back down in the region of deep midwicket. Jarvis seemed to misjudge it initially as he back-pedalled to his left and behind, and took it overhead as he fell back. Save the replay of this catch on Youtube! 72/2
    23.5 Rahim succumbs to the slower ball. He's been compulsively defensive for a while, and seemed to have been sucked into the drive early this time. Straight to cover where Vusi gobbles it. 129/4
