    48.5 got him with a beauty of a yorker. This is terrific. Full, straight and honing in towards base of middle from wide of the crease, Mire went for the big hit over long-on, swung through early and heard the ball rattle into the stumps. 284/8
    1.3 cramps him up with a short one on leg. Zhuwao pulls almost as if out of habit and gets a top-edge that is neatly taken by short fine running forward 2/1
    5.5 that's a brute! Draws him forward with a fullish length and then gets it to prodigiously nip away to just about shave the outside edge. Early advantage for West Indies 28/2
    43.2 this is a miscue, ends up slicing this attempted slog and Nurse, who misjudged it at cover, keeps his composure and holds on. Magnificent innings, Harare Sports Club rises to applaud the knock. 246/6
    19.3 chopped on! Roach has struck and this is a result of all the pressure he built. Ervine looks to steer this behind point but is cramped for room and ends up getting a thick inside edge onto the leg stump. This was a cross-seam delivery that skidded on much faster than Ervine expected. 79/3
    30.3 pulled straight into the hands of midwicket. Keemo Paul sends the crowd into stunned silence. Went back to over the wicket for this short ball, Williams went fore the pull but had to fetch it from outside off, unlike the previous delivery where the ball was angling in, and he hit this straight into the hands of the fielder. 155/4
    42.1 the captain's done the trick, or has he? Off the pad and onto the stumps. Big, big scalp. This is clever bowling, sees the batsman looking to make room and followed him by angling this full down leg, Raza cramped for room as he looked to work this to the leg side, as the ball deflects off the pad onto the stumps. Raza was halfway down towards the dressing room when he was called back. That's because Holder has overstepped. Oh, dear. But that's been deemed legitimate. Big moment either way. The third umpire took a number of looks at that and deemed that a legal delivery. Harsh call, perhaps. There was nothing behind the line. Streak called it a no-ball from the dressing room, but was shocked at the eventual decision like many others. 234/5
    43.5 gloves this short ball back to the bowler. Cremer is completely undone by the short ball, his technical shortcomings exposed as Roach bowls this at an uncomfortable length. He wasn't sure where this delivery was and hung his glove out. West Indies are fighting back and how 250/7
    49.5 walloped., has he cleared the ropes? No. Easy catch by Nurse at deep midwicket. Big buckets hands made it easy. He looked to swung this with the angle but got more elevation than distance. Looked to clear the biggest boundary, didn't have the timing. 288/9
    49.6 squeezed towards long-off, there's a scurry for the second but the throw is superb at the keeper's end as the bails are whipped off. He's well short of the crease. Bowled out off the final ball. 289/10

    5.5 there goes Gayle. Blessing strikes early to get the crowd all worked up. And it's the big fish. It's short and angled across and Gayle scythes at it.The sharp angle and extra bounce results in the ball skewing off the outside edge of the lower part of the bat and lobbing to third man 38/1
    21.2 that's a big, big wicket. Tossed up, gets this to drift in and spin away a wee bit, Lewis looks to ease it past the bowler but this ball holds onto the surface. The grip and turn does him in as he ends up chipping the simplest of return catches. The local fans are dancing in joy. 110/2
    44.4 it's that superman Sikandar Raza who may have burst open the game again. Two set batsmen have been dismissed in quick succession. Hope fetches this sweep from way outside off, this was hit well and hit flat but Raza, who would've been well aware of the prospect of risking this for a boundary, dives forward, gets nice and low to pull off a stunner literally inches from the ground. Was in control and then he tumbled over nicely to ensure the elbows didn't hit the ground hard. The soft signal was out, the third umpire is happy, OUT comes the decision and the crowd goes wild. 249/4
    43.5 that could be a big moment in the match yet. Floats this a touch ahead of length on off, Samuels looks to run this down to third man but can only mange a faint little deflection that has been pouched by Taylor, who moves to his right to complete it. This has been a fine innings nevertheless. Is there hope still for Zimbabwe? 245/3
    45.4 Redemption immediately! That's an MS Dhoni-like stumping. Hetmyer suffers a brain fade here. Why would you look to hit it out of the ground? Goes for a big heave over the leg side, swings through early and misses. Taylor whips the bails off in a jiffy. This is hara-kiri from the West Indies. Zimbabwe are alive and kicking. 265/6
    45.2 this time he's gone trying to hit over long-off. Cremer slowed it down just a touch, Holder didn't quite get underneath the flight this time and ended up miscuing this, Raza keeps his composure at the ropes with the advertising skirting very much lurking behind him and completes an excellent catch. 263/5
