    15.3 beautifully bowled and Taibu is quick as a flash! nicely flighted, it dips on him, drawing him out of the crease, searching for the delivery that pitches shorter than it seemed, and then breaks away and beats him and Taibu removes the bails in a jiffy. Big, big wicket 48/1
    25.2 slog-swept, and Utseya gets his second wicket! it perhaps bounced a touch on him, and instead of going towards midwicket, it goes straight down the throat of long-on. The pressure exerted by the spinners have worked here 86/2
    38.6 another soft wicket, poor running here, and Deonarine and Chanders - best friends from what it seems - involved in a run-out again! It is a quicker delivery, turned around the corner, and Deonarine sets off immediately, Chanders - though he never said no - ambles up the pitchcasually, and Sibanda hits the stumps direct. Chanders gives up way before Sibanda runs in, and to his right, to field this one 151/4
    38.5 soft dismissal, short delivery, Ramdin goes for the pull, but it comes into him and sort of rushes on too, cramps him up and he ends up pulling it straight down midwicket's throat. Not sure if he still played for the legbreak - Maruma is yet to bowl one, by the way, he has bowled all googlies and the occasional seam-up quicker ones 151/3
    45.1 goes for loft over extra cover, the offbreak means he ends up slicing it straight to cover-point 195/5
    46.6 that flick just hasn't come right for Bravo today, and even as this is angled into his pads he is early into the shot, and the leading edge lobs to mid-off, and Matsikenyeri runs from extra cover to complete the catch 207/6
    48.4 the Revenge of the Leggie! Sees Pollard charge at him, bowls this one wide, the break takes it away, and beats him, and it's a comfortable stumping for Taibu, and again Zimbabwe strike before West Indies can inflict too much damage 225/7

    49.3 eventful delivery! Rampaul goes for the pull shot, Utseya runs back from square leg but the top edge clears him and suddenly he sees midwicket running in and jams his head into Maruma's shin while trying to avoid the collision, and has hit himself hard. Meanwhile, Rampaul tries to sneak a third, but Chigumbura collects the throw with one hand and makes sure he doesn't disturb the bail before he collects it, and then runs him out 242/8
    49.5 Miller to face, and Miller misses a full and straight delivery and is bowled 243/9

    0.3 what a yorker! 90mph, just short of the crease, and through him even before the bat comes down, and the off stump cartwheels. The last time Roach bowled such a yorker to Vusi, his bat came down, but the ball broke through the bat and took the stump. No bat here, what a ripper to begin here 0/1
    13.2 three in three overs for Sammy! and this is the big one, Masakadza! looks for that little single down to third man, the ball holds its line slightly, and it's enough to get the edge, West Indies - and the crowd - are elated 58/5
    9.6 gone, caught and bowled, Taylor drives at a length delivery, bat turns in the hand and offers an easy return catch 51/2
    11.6 and Sammy strikes last ball of the over again! brushes the outside edge, holds its line ever so slightly, pitched just back of a length, around off-stump line, making him play, and taking a thin edge through 57/3
    12.3 and he is gone first ball! Bravo gets one to bend in and right up to the stumps, Stuart gets a long way across, is beaten by the swing, and is caught right in front 58/4
    20.2 lovely catch CG! goes for the big drive, gets a healthy edge, Gayle at first slip dives to his left and takes it one-handed, what a blinder that is! 80/8
    16.3 after one holds its line, Roach gets one to come in, and it beats Chigumbura and catches him in front of stumps, at the crease, and hits him just inside the line. Roach kisses the badge on the shirt 72/6
    19.3 another one holds its line, another one bites the dust! seems it would angle in to the batsman, and then straightens enough to beat him and kiss the top of off stump, West Indies all over it 75/7
    28.1 and he has upper-cut this one straight to third man! short and wide and he goes for it, Miller comes in a couple of paces and completes the catch 96/9
