    1.5 bizzare, really bizzarre, Sibanda's embarrassed himself here! Left his leg stump alone, huge shuffle towards middle and it's pitched up on leg with a hint of inward movement, he offers no shot thinking it'll slide down the leg side but hears the death rattle, the leg stump's out of the ground and Sibanda's inclusion has failed to deliver 5/1
    8.2 run out, Masakadza's fun stops here, Rasel changes the pace and Masakadza gets forward and angles it down to short third man, no realistic chance of a single but the batsman sets off, there's confusion in the calling and he turns around and makes a desperate attempt to make his ground, Ashraful fires the throw to Mushfiqur and the third umpire confirms the run out 43/3
    3.3 Coventry's gone! The swing's doing the trick for Mahmud, pitched up outside off, had frustrated Coventry so far and the batsman went for flowing drive through mid-off, it moved away to kiss the outside edge and Mushfiqur hurled himself to his right to snap a sharp one, the record-holder's been dismissed for a duck 9/2
    9.1 timber! Superb delivery, the inswinger this time. Pitched on a good length outside off and Waller reached forward to defend it into the off side, it darted back in to beat him through the gate and crash into the stumps, Zimbabwe are sliding here 47/4
    12.6 gone! Rasel's struck, Williams goes, the inswinger, short of a good length outside off and cut back in sharply, Williams rocked back to punch it towards mid-on but was done in by the movement, was rapped on the pads in front of the off stump, the umpire had no hesitation and he's made the right call 65/5
    13.4 Dolar gets his fourth! Angling in towards middle from slightly wide of the crease, came half-forward and tried to close the face with bat perilously close to his pads to play it into the leg side, missed and was struck plumb in front 69/6
    40.6 bowled flat from round the wicket, angled it in towards off stump and it spun away, Taylor went for the sweep, looking to play it through square leg but missed, was rapped on the pads and was given. Replays show it would have missed off, and he was struck outside the line, poor call 176/8
    27.6 bowled'im! Poor shot, that. Tossed up, lands on a good length on middle and spins in sharply towards leg, goes for the pull when the shot wasn't really on, misses and is bowled. 123/7
    46.4 moved well across to scoop it over short fine again but was rapped on the pads, Sahiba gave him out but he actually wasn't as it struck him outside the line and would have missed off anyway, poor decision again 209/10
    45.3 stumped, comes round the wicket, fires it short outside off as he sees Cremer charging down, tries to slap it through cover, misses and Mushfiqur takes off the bails to find him well short 203/9

    9.1 strikes immediately! A lot of turn there for him, short outside off, spun back in sharply, Tamim rocked back to attempt the cut, missed it completely and was bowled 43/1
    44.4 he misses out on a century! stumped, tossed it up outside off, Mushfiqur wanted to get it over and done with, charged out of his crease to loft it over the bowler's head, it turned away and Coventry clipped the bails to find him agonizingly short of a maiden ODI ton 199/5
    10.4 what a catch! An absolute stunner, bowled short and wide, goes for the cut, connects well but finds Sibanda at point who times his jump to perfection and plucks it out of thin air one-handed, tumbles but holds on, two down now 48/2
    23.6 Raqibul departs, the bowling change works! Tossed it up well outside off, reached for it with a bug lunge and tried to paddle it down, all that hard work would have yielded just a run but this is worse, it catches the top edge and Waller takes the easiest of catches at short fine 99/3
    36.2 Shakib's holed out! Cremer gave it some air, it was pitched up outside off, Shakib came down the track and tried to clear long-on, got quite a bit of bat on it but didn't get the desired elevation, landed safe in the palms of Masakadza in the deep 169/4
