    4.5 superb delivery..... pitches on middle and shapes away, Sibanda is forced to play at it, he pokes at the ball rather uneasily and gets a thick outside edge to Akmal. He doesn't wait for umpire Ghauri to give him out and just walks 16/1

    6.2 Tanvir strikes again! pitches outside the off stump, gets a bit more bounce this time, Chibhabha gets a half prod forward, doesn't know whether to play at it or not, gets a thick outside and the ball flies to Misbah at first slip 19/2
    45.6 Akmal gets the thin edge.... slower ball outside the off stump, Taibu gives room and tries to cut, the ball kicks up a little, gets a thin edge through to Akmal. Taibu knows it and he starts walking before umpire de Silva raises the finger 218/6
    43.3 the slower ball again, pitches on a fullish length outside off, Taylor tries to loft over the off side but stays rooted to the crease, Malik runs backwards from extra cover and takes a well-judged catch 211/4
    44.2 Pakistan are pulling it back here.... gives it plenty of air outside the off stump, Chigumbura stays at the crease and tries to go downtown, he connects but fails to get the desired elevation, Younis runs to his left from deep midwicket and takes it low forward 213/5
    46.1 the bowling change works..... deceives Williams with a slower one, he lofts from the crease and tries to clear long-on, he fails to get the distance and hits it down substitute Fawad Alam's throat 218/7
    46.5 Rao gets him with reverse swing... gets the ball to drift in from off and middle, Matsikenyeri tries to work it through the off side, gets beaten and the ball cannons onto the leg stump, sending it back a few yards 220/8

    24.4 superb stuff from Taibu! Malik lunges forward to drive but the ball catches the toe of his bat, hits his pad and rolls close to the stumps. Taibu gathers the ball and breaks the stumps with Malik short of the crease. Zimbabwe know they've got him and the third umpire reconfirms that 139/4
    37.4 Misbah tries to launch this out of the ground but mis-hits it, he stays at the crease, gets on his knee and the ball is skied for a long time, Taylor at mid-on takes a few paces backwards and takes the catch, falling over to his right 178/5
