    0.1 and a nightmare start! Fuller ball outside the off stump. Taylor opens his arms and drives it to extra-cover. Shuvo moves to his left and fields. He sees that Taylor is half-way down the pitch and throws it to the keeper's end. Rahim need not even lay a finger on it as the throw takes the bails off. Run-out of a free-hit! 1/1
    6.2 and the cracks come into play! Good length ball outside the off stump and coming in. Masakadza looks to play across the line and the bounce deceives him. He is struck on the flap of the back pad and the umpire has no hesitation in raising the index finger as Masakadza was playing on the backfoot. As a colleague of mine would say "Plumb as they come" 12/2
    10.1 and Mash has struck again! he has been pretty consistent with his line and length today, this one was slightly angled across the left-hander from just back of a length, it rapped him on the back pad around off stump as he pushed outside the line from the crease, umpire Asoka raised the finger right away, Zimbabwe are in disarray 21/3
    38.5 the partnership comes to an end! Ervine looks to reverse sweep it and gets a top edge that settles easily in Rahim's gloves. And can you believe the fact that it is the first wicket for spin today!! Shows how well Taibu and Ervine have played the spinners 116/4
    48.3 fuller outside the off stump. Taibu makes room and looks to go inside out. He gets the shot right but it has no elevation as it settles in the hands of Mashrafe at extra-cover 168/6
    46.4 and the strangling line works as Chigumbara rocks back and looks to pull it away. He does not get enough bat on it . Raqibul running in from long-on takes an easy catch. Shakib wins the battle of the captains 152/5

    28.6 gets out in a temptation to go for the eighth. He comes down the track and mistimes a lofted shot into the leg side. Cremer runs in from deep midwicket and dives forward to complete the catch. He was just five runs away from the century. The crowd has been silenced as Tamim is a local boy but what entertainment till it lasted 139/2
    0.4 and there's the first blood! Imrul goes for the cut shot with his feet moving nowhere and does not quite reach the ball. As he does not reach the ball properly, he only manages to get an outside edge back to the keeper. Taibu takes it comfortably and the Zimbabwean camp is happy 3/1

    29.4 Aaya Raqibul, gaya Raqibul. Roughly translated it means Raqibul comes and goes! He was drawn into a defensive stroke outside the off stump and this time the resultant edge carries to Masakadza at first slip. Cremer knows what he has done and is very happy 139/3
    36.5 good length ball on the middle stump. Shakib comes down the track and slogs it straight down the throat of Taylor at long-on. A needless shot at this time as victory is in sight! It is at these times that Zimbabwe will wonder what would have happened had they got Tamim earlier 172/4
