    1.1 gone right away, Rubel strikes first ball, Taylor pushing away from his body, a problem he has had throughout this series, holding its line some way outside off from a length, no need to do anything with it, but Taylor goes poking limply and Rahim gleefully snaps up the edge 2/1
    13.4 Sibanda is gone, off a mistimed pull, not for the first time in the series, rocked back as he saw one angled in short in to him, but got the pull off the back of the bat towards short third man who took the dolly 59/2
    16.5 gone leg before, this time the appeal is upheld, shuffling forward to one coming in with the angle, struck in front of middle and leg, that would have hit leg stump, and he is sent on his way 73/3
    17.2 could not get plumber that that, Taibu trying to drag the sweep from off stump, Shakib angles it in full from wide of the crease, pitched around middle and off, Taibu misses with the big swing, and that was hitting off and middle, more middle than off 73/4
    31.5 gone! superb work from extra cover, and guess who it is, it is Shakib Al Hasan, low full toss hit hard, he thought it had enough to go past extra cover, but Shakib was around there to put in a big dive to his right and stop the ball, Mutizwa was more than half way down the track by then, and it was too late to get back as Shakib fired in an accurate throw to Rahim, can any performance get more all-round than that? 140/5
    37.2 that is it for Waller and for Zimbabwe I say, down on the knee and tries to slog-sweep over midwicket, gets it straight to the man in the deep, been an entertaining innings, and has brought Zimbabwe back a shade but he has given it away 160/7
    33.6 the tamest of tame dismissals, shuffled across to a short delivery turning in, seemed to be in two minds whether to crack it over midwicket or play it out, in the end did something in between and pushed it straight to the man there 145/6
    37.6 another one goes, Utseya departs now, shortish one, he tries to go back in the crease and pull it through square leg, tame top edge, swirls up tamely and shot fine leg is waiting under it 160/8
    38.2 all over for Zimbabwe, that is the game for Bangladesh, Meth is not going to come out to bat, widish delivery, he goes after it from the crease and hits it to backward point 160/10
