    2.2 and another! shocking piece of judgment from Sibanda who completely misreads the line and shoulders arms, only to watch his off stump go backwards. Powell on fire and Zimbabwe already sinking quickly...to Powell's credit that did nip back, but it was always too close to leave. There's been a few batsmen go without playing shots so far in the World Cup 2/2
    1.1 and he only lasts one ball! full inswinger from Taylor and that would have been too much for better players. Kasteni was late on it, played all around the ball and it crashed into off stump. Great start for West Indies 0/1
    9.2 that's why no one went up, he was planning on cleaning him up next ball! full and straight, Chibhabha beaten for pace and gets nowhere near it, Zimbabwe in further trouble after a promising stand 31/3
    40.6 poor calling - a mix-up, Taylor stranded mid-pitch running from the non-striker's end after the dab down to point. There was never a run there, but Taylor didn't wait for the call and set off, to his ultimate cost 142/5
    17.4 the first sign of aggression from Matsikenyeri and it doesn't come off - looking to strike that over mid-on but it hardly gets up whatsoever and that's an easy catch for Daren Powell at chest height 59/4

    18.1 gone! what a breakthrough, Mpofu's first ball back is just outside off stump, Gayle has a nibble and the edge flies to Taylor's left, it's a regulation catch but he tries to take it one-handed, palming it away, but Sibanda is behind him to catch the rebound...almost a replay of the one Taylor shelled against Ireland, only to be rescued by Sibanda's sharp reflexes 73/2
    17.3 gone! that came out of nowhere really, good line and length on off stump, Chanderpaul pushes at it and gets an outside edge low to the lone, wide slip where Sibanda takes a very good catch 73/1
    24.6 caught and bowled and Ireland gets a wicket, a soft dismissal in the end but a good catch from one which was hit quite hard and he held on. Ireland chooses not to celebrate outrageously, instead whirling his arm round, almost apologetically 106/3
    32.6 gone! now then, now then, a loose drive from Samuels finds point and a soft wicket for West Indies to give away. Zimbabwe continue to chip away and will feel they have sniff in this match...with that everyone takes a drink and has a moment to take stock 129/4
