    44.5 yorker from Mpofu, superb delivery that, Naeem just about squeezed it out towards the keeper, the batsmen went through for the single, Tamim seemed to have got in the bowler's way, he caught short by the keeper's throw, he stands his ground protesting that the bowler blocked him, the umpire sends him on his way, massive blow for Bangladesh 187/9
    11 Mpofu finally gets his first wicket after a good spell of bowling, it wasn't a particularly good delivery, short and wide, Junaid guides it along to third man where Malcolm Waller is waiting 42/2
    2.3 is that the end of Ashraful, Junaid dropped the ball to the off side and set off for the run, Matsikenyeri is onto it in a flash, throws down the stumps at the keeper's end, third umpire sends Ashraful on his way 8/1
    17.3 a flighted delivery lures Raqibul out of the crease, he misses the ball and his struggle at the crease is over as Taylor whips off the bails 75/3
    24.3 Matsikenyeri has done it, superb delivery, Shakib is going down the track looking to smash the ball out of the ground, he doesn't connect as the ball spins away sharply, Taylor has ages to whip off the bails, no need for a third umpire this time 105/5
    22.2 Cremer takes the catch at backward square leg, it was a short ball, Mushfiqur goes for the sweep, top-edges it 102/4
    41.4 is that a run-out? The Zimbabweans are confident, the batsman was well short at the non-striker's end when the stumps were broken, but did the bowler's hands disturb the stumps before that? it was turned to backward square leg, the batsmen looked to pinch a tight single, the replays showed that it was the ball that hit the stumps, Mahmudullah was well short, he's on his way, is there a twist in this game? 174/6
    not out
    42.2 Chibhabha has struck, a pretty poor delivery, angling down leg, Razzak helps it along to the keeper Mutizwa, who's standing in for Taylor, who has gone off the field 179/7
    43 yes he can, that's a double-wicket maiden, fantastic over for Zimbabwe, Enamul was a bit unlucky as that hit him above the knee-roll in front of middle and leg, might have been worth giving him the benefit of doubt there, the umpire has raised his finger though 179/8
