    4.6 plumb! Not much doubt about that one, as the batsman shaped to pull but the ball failed to get up at all, and struck on the back leg just above the knee roll. The ball would have gone on to hit the top of off 9/1

    9.1 strangled down the leg-side and that's really very well held by Taylor, diving low to his left and getting his left glove underneath it to scoop it up. That's a good decision from the umpire to match; the batsman just getting a shade of glove on it. Zimbabwe's tails are up pretty early on indeed 26/2
    29.3 brilliant catch, went back to give himself room to cut but the ball bounced a little more than he expected on this slow pitch and he couldn't keep it down. Rainsford flung himself to his left at backward point and held the chance inches off the turf. Big wicket for Zimbabwe 109/3
    43.4 full, gives himself room, looks to smash it over cover for a maximum but all his ambitions are shattered by Rainsford's accuracy 189/4
    44.5 more width, another swing but can only find the bottom of the bat and it loops to extra cover. Tough pitch to come in and smash it around on - he's made a duck 196/5
    46.4 the slower ball does for him, that bottom hand comes through too quickly and he holes out to deep mid on - it was bright but brief from Bangladesh's quick bowler 210/6

    6.3 this one is right on line and Chibhabha tries to play it through the on side, the ball straightens slightly and strikes the front pad just above the ankle. That is heading for middle and leg and Bangladesh have their first breakthrough 26/1
    25.4 looks dangerous this, Taylor's been dragged out of his crease, over-balanced and Mashud has whipped off the bails. They are going to the third umpire but Taylor has walked. That could be it... 88/5
    10.6 soft run out - classic mix-up and Zimbabwe pay the price with Masakadza sacrificing himself. Taylor middled the ball with a good shot which took the opposing stumps and the richochet was quickly gathered and returned to the keeper who waited and took the stumps. Taylor set off and Masakadza was stranded in no-man's land, and he crossed with the scampering Taylor to let that batsman stay in. 35/2
    18.3 cleaned him right up with a quicker one that rocketed against the pads off the bat and straight into the sticks. This wicket was always on the cards with Strydom struggling against the spin. 61/3
    23.1 dear oh dear, Taylor has worked it to deep backward square, turned for a quick second but Matsikenyeri has not moved - poor Taylor looked up to see his partner unmoved at the other end. For the second time in the innings, Taylor sprints passed a partner, running him out. 78/4
    39.2 stunning effort from Saqibul as the batsman tries to turn the ball away and gets a leading edge high into the on side. There is no one fielding inside the ring so Saqibul has to make the ground himself and completes the catch with a fine diving catch 123/6
    39.4 and another one bites the dust as Brent gets a huge top edge to an attempted sweep which is safely pouched by Bashar at midwicket 123/7
    44.2 another one falls, big swipe across the line trying to keep up with that uber-run rate and it rattles the middle poll. That ball started straight, bounced straight and hit straight, unlike the shot 130/9
    42.5 and that's the end of Ireland, a swipe across the line and the experienced Rafique hits the leg stump - not sure where he was trying to hit that, but at least he didn't block it - again... 127/8

    44.4 and that's it, game over. He goes back to one that he should be forward to, it careers past a flapping bat, taking out all three. 130/10
